Craftsman 5hp compressor won't start

Compressor tries to start with electric motor turning but quickly stops before it gets to speed. I'm thinking it may be a stuck valve which keeps pressure signal to NOT start. Any ideas? Thanks.

Sounds like the check valve going in to the tank is stuck.

Thanks Mike. Is it best to replace or just clean?
