Could be a faulty compressor its self.
Leaky hoses or lines. Mine had a tiny rust hole in the tank its self and had to get it welded.
Is your pressure setting up where they should be. mine has settings where you turn a knob to set pressure up or down for different operations. These are just ideas to help
Good luck.

w/o other details, one can only presume that the tank pressure switch has be adjusted to high or it has failed/broke. Adjust pressure downward (if not already). Replace tank switch.

Loosing line a little bit going into tank and see it the pressure continues to come out if so, you might want to consider replacing the check valve. It is designed to keep the pressures in the tank and when they leak off it causes back pressure on the motor making it hard to restart...hope that helps.

This is were you add oil to the hammer mechanism, to lube the motor just simply add it through the air inlet.

If you have a 110 volt appliance, all switches , wiring and components are made especially to handle that voltage. If you feed 220 to 240 volts into it, most certainly the machine will be unsafe and likely fail in a very short time. Purchase a step down transformer to reduce your supply voltage to 110. Most good electrical parts stores should be able to supply this.

Its probably a oil less compressor so it could be the reed valves are bad or the piston rings are bad.
