So the motor turning over for a second and shutting off means that it's overloading. I'm not sure if you got it wet when you used the spray bottle or not but you can try to let it dry out for 24 hours and if it still keeps shutting off after 1 second of running either you need a new compressor or the overload relay on the side of the compressor is bad. You can't replace the compressor yourself so you'll want to replace the overload relay on the side of the compressor and see where you stand. If it still acts up then the compressor would need to be replaced.
