Grab each end and see if there is much play.
What are the values on the caps BTW?

I don't know oil-less, but was told they don't last as long and are very noisy! Seems that is all they are offering tho in less expensive units now days. Maybe you just Wore it out! Are parts available to rebuild these? Is it a Sears? Searsparts.com might have them or offer other help? My .02 worth!

I think I fixed it. After trying to use die grinder with my 6 gal, I had to try to figure out what is wrong. It worked the first time after I thought I fixed it so when it started kicking breaker again, confusing. I removed the plastic housing holding the capacitors and inspected, looked fine. When I put the 2 screws back in, the bottom one got tight, but plastic bracket was sloppy. I tighten screw some more and it kept going and plastic then got tight. Plugged in and fired right up. I think the first time I didn't get tight and it started but then plastic bracket slid off end and that was problem. I started /stooped several times and seemed to be okay. I wonder how many of these were pitched cause off a broken plastic bracket?
GL, it's a porter cable. I bought it through Lowes many years ago, 2003, 2004?
