What was the temp in your shop? How long had you been spraying before the compressor stopped? It’s very possible nothing is wrong except the dirty motor. These light duty compressors can overheat in a warm/hot shop with a spray finishing duty cycle. Clean out the motor windings. It’s also possible the pressure unload stuck, which dumps pressure at the discharge line so the motor doesn’t have to start against head pressure. It’s possible but not likely the cap is bad – not old enough. Report back what you find.
