That is a pressure switch.  The pump may have lost its prime.  Can you take a line off and get some oil into the pump to prime it?

That's something I am going to try, I'm hoping to get to it this week. Hoping to get some info from the manufacturer ( parts diagram) so I know what it looks like before i open it up if I have to go that far.

Well I finally fixed the issue. I got a hold of the local repair facility who sent me an exploded view of the switch. The low oil switch was taken apart, cleaned, inspected, fixed, lubed and reassembled. It was combination of sludge slowing the oil down from coming in and the plunger part of the switch was not retracting fully. I am glad to say it is now running correctly and I can finally start using it again..

"What's an air compressor?"   That old quote doesn't have meaning now that George isn't here.   :(
