USTAR compressor sputtering, dying


New Member

Hi all, I bought a USTAR 601G 1.5 years ago, and I've been pleased with it so far. I had to put it into storage for a while, as I was moving, and I've just unpacked it today (I need a painting project to preserve my sanity these days). I had to ship it from where I was, so I disconnected the line from the compressor to the air tank. I reattached everything and switched it on, but the motor barely starts. It makes a bit of noise but stops after 5-10 seconds (see link). Can anyone help diagnose this problem? Thank you!!!
