    So I have a Makita MAC700 compressor aprox 1.5 years old and it has been excellent until today. The motor wont start up, the motor only humns when I place the lever to on position. It has not been overheated, air tank is empty, plugged into good outlet.

    The thermal overload button does not seem to be tripped, does this button have a spring loaded type of tension? The button seems loose, with no resistance when pushing it in.

    Not sure where else to look?

    Sounds like your pressure relief valve hung up.
    Smack that thermal reset.
