Make sure the compressor isn't plugged in and then see if you can turn it by hand - this will tell you if anything is locked up.
The gallon size of the tank doesn't mean anything. What size (HP) motor is on the compressor, is it 240V or 120V?

Do as a7e suggested first. After that, if there is pressure in the tank, drain it down, and see if it will start; could be a bad check valve or unloader.
