    The problem could be your induction motor does not have high breakdown torque of a REAL 2 or 3 HP motor. This could be because it's really a 3/4 horsepower and they rated it by the peak it can dish out when under heavy load. Induction motors are generally rated as continuous horsepower, even though they can develop 2 to 3 times the nameplate value when under a heavy load. Some air compressor manufacturers will use the peak rating which makes it "seem better", but the motor manufacturer cannot legally rate the motors at their peak, or NEMA will be all other them in a heart beat. If you look for a sticker on the motor's frame, then you should find the real motor's rating. If it's made in china then its most likely not what it says it is. China does not care about NEMA standards.

    I say replace your motor with either of the following motor name brands:

    GE
    Baldor
    Leeson
    Marathon
    Westinghouse
    Lincoln
    A.O. Smith

    If you tell me your motor frame type and how it's mounted then I can direct you to where to buy the appropriate induction motor.
