hello happy people of rods n sods land!!!
ive got a big ol clarke compressor & last time i went to use it ....nothing!...then i pressed in a little button (which is a slow start button apparently) & it started to hum like it was going to start ...then the button popped out again & it stopped!!....the motor turns freely by hand & the big wheel turns freely aswell...was told it might be brushes?...but took motor apart & could see nothing like brushes as i know them (like you would have in a drill or grinder)...can anyone give me some helpfull advice on how to fix it?

I had a similar thing after not using mine for a while - just kept resetting it and after a while it fired up ok. I think the pistons were a bit sticky through lack of use
