I'd say about $50. The first compressor we had was a $369 lowes special. The pump wore out. It got real hard to turn and it burned up the motor. We then bought a nice compressor that was 6.5hp 80 gallon and about 20cfm. It worked fine for about 5 years and it burned up the motor. We put another motor on it $190, and it lasted about a year. Then I had some money and bought a powertrain compressor 6hp 60 gallon and it has worked good for about a year. I think most compressors are throw away now. If the compressor is bad the motor could be wore out. I think if a new one is around $400 it would be better to get a new one with a warranty.
