Question about Ingersoll Air Tools & Compressors
AIR COMPRESSOR WILL OPERATE NORMALLY UNTIL AFTER 15 MINUTES OF OPERATION UNTIL IT REACHES NEAR CUTOUT POINT, THEN BECOMES TO TIGHT, THEN KICKS THE MOTOR BREAKER OUT IT IS A MODEL 33SP COMPRESSOR FROM INGERSOLL RAND
Heat in that location noted is to be expected, but to the degree that it is should be of some concern.
When was the oil changed in the compressor last?
If you are running with a multiviscosity oil, use it only if the manual indicates it. Running straight weight oils, especially in extreme conditions is prudent insurance against failure. If you are running 10W20 for example- run 20 weight instead until regular air temps are below freezing- then the switching to 10 weightshould be a consideration..
The oil sump serves 2 purposes- 1- Coolant. 2-lubrication.
However I think the bearings in in the compressor are needing attention.
More because it sounds like there is an oiling problem in the compressor itself. At an absolute minimum it sounds like the head should be pulled to inspect for galling in the cylinder walls and to look for trace oil on the cylinder wall.

I would wonder A if the wiring was heavey enough to carry that sort of load with out overheating B if the motor is big enough to do it for the same reason( ?what is the duty cycle?) C if the receiver is big enough to allow reasonable time between shut down and start up --- remembering that at start up the motor pulls double the current to start up and if it doesn `thave sufficient time to cool alittle before being called on to do it again and that would prompt the question ,does it have sufficient ventilation? these are all queries that would need addressing before I would try to offer a solution ,one thing is certain ,--there is something wrong

When it shuts down, press DISPLAY SELECT button once and use the up down arrows to see the code just before shutdown.
HIGH AIREND TEMP
HIGH AIR PRESSURE
LOW SUMP PRESSURE
PRESSURE OR TEMP SENSOR FAIL
CHECK MOTOR ROTATION
FAN MOTOR OVERLOAD
I am assuming this has a Intellisys controller.

possible that one of the protections switch it off check oil levels motor and screw can also be a sensor, can check these by briging them one by one. first indication is control lamp. or possible fuel problem check filters and tank. also check wiring complete. is weak point for ir machines. good luck.

Ingersoll Rand likes you to buy their all season select oil for their air compressors, most piston air compressors use an R+O 100 oil it is equivalent to n SAE 30 wt oil.

SOURCE: I have an Ingersoll Rand
When the compressor comes up to pressure and kicks off, you should normally hear a gasp of air escaping. That gasp is the release of pressure from the compressor itself - not the tank, and it is supposed to get released so that the compressor can restart without being preloaded with compressed air. My guess is that the gasp is not happening. It is probably some debris or a gummy mechanism. The mechanism is supposed to be triggered by the same mechanism that shuts off the motor.
