Once you diagnose the issue, everything about that compressor can be repaired or replaced, and as long as the tank is in good condition, it’s almost certainly worth fixing.

In addition to the good suggestions so far, you might want to unplug the unit and inspect the contacts in the pressure switch. My experience is that those contacts are optimistically rated, and if they’re not conducting enough current, it could affect startup. I am not impressed with the pressure switches in most compressors, but that doesn’t mean it’s your problem, just something that is easy to check.
