HI, my name is***** will be assisting you.Do you hear any air leaking from the unit at all? There is a check valve in the tank that could be the issue but if it is you should be hearing air leaking from the unit. If air is leaking from unit then you will want to identify where it is coming from, often the cause is the relief valve which can be replaced at a cost of $3.99 plus shipping(see link provided).If you do not hear any air leaks then the motor or pump is the problem and would have to be replaced as there are no individual parts available for repair. The pump/motor assembly cost $48.81 plus shipping and can be ordered through the following website(see link provided).Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.Please take a moment to rate your experience.http://www.ereplacementparts.com/campbell-hausfeld-fp209499av-2010-oiless-air-compressor-parts-c-32345_32346_289890.html
