For the past 3 hours of use the compressor/pump seems to cycle audibly but pressure at outlet hose seems constant, hence I did'nt worry. Now it does not start with switch on. I now hear a buzzing sound from the unit. The unit was last used 6 weeks ago. The unit was stored in the garage away from frost, it does not leak water so I don't think there is any frost damage, but just this buzz. Any suggestions would
