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.

SOURCE: ingersoll rand compressor T30 model 7100

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

MOTOR OVERLOAD

FAN MOTOR OVERLOAD

STARTER FAULT

I am assuming this has a Intellisys controller.

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.

Hi,I got a Ingersoll Rand type 30 model 234 compressor.It looks good but it has no motor.I'm thinking like 120v,3horses?,but not sure about rpm.any help would be nice.thanks


According to the information you provided your looking at a 10 HP motor at three phase. Do you have three phase at your location? If not I would look into getting a single phase compressor. If you do want to get it going I would notify your local IR dealer so they can get you the right Model number, RPM, Pulley and Motor Frame Size to match your unit.

Please read below....Jim...if this helped you please send me a positive response...Thanks!
