Question about Ingersoll Rand 231C-KS - 1/2" Super Duty Air Impact Wrench Kit With Flip Socket Set And Bit Dr - - Ingersoll-Rand - IR 231C-KS

1 Answer

New ingersoll compressor starts slow pops reset

Checked voltage input on each leg---checked amp draw on each leg when running--both of these were within limits. Amp surge at start up seemed a little high150+.
It starts slow and groans on restart when pressure drops to kick it back on. It appears to properly unload when it reaches pressure. Then, all of a sudden it will groan to restart the next time and pop the reset.
This compresssor is not very many months old.

My air compressor a, 2 stage is over heating on the one cylinder that is the 2nd in line to the tank change the oil checked the filters and has good ventilation. One of the cylinder`s hotter than the other...

Sounds like the cooler cylinder has reed problems and is not working correctly. The heat is typical in a reciprocating compressor. Both heads or cylinders should produce the same amout of heat. Pull the head on the cooler cylinder and check the reed valves in the head.

I have a two stage electric air compressor that wants to stall. I turn it on and as it runs up, it will labor and stop. Checked oil and it is full. This compressor is used very little, what should I do...

check both motor start and run capacitors if it starts o.k. but loses power as pressure increases,this could be a sign of a weak motor run cap.if this helps replace both caps cause its cheaper than a new motor

Oil leak

First check the oil level. It should not be overfilled. Is the compressor level?

If above is all OK, change the oil with the recomended ok. Check the IR web site for an approved oil. It is important that the right oil is used.

If you still have a problem it sounds like a time for piston rings.

Good Luck
