The sad fact is these things are "throw-away" designs and are rarely worth repairing so spending money on them is just throwing good money after bad as the old saying goes. Unless the repair turns out to be something really cheap you would be much better off applying that money toward the cost of a new belt drive compressor. Most likely the pump is trying to seize and the motor cannot spin it, is the motor getting unusually hot? Sorry about being so blunt but those things have a terrible reputation and even if you fix it you still don't have a reliable compressor, 3 years is more than most people get out of them.
