Question about Ingersoll Air Tools & Compressors
My diesel powdered 100 cfm compressor shuts down after about ten minutes of running with or without any equipment hook up to it, the high temp discharge light comes on and the engine will shut down. I could be a sensor or maybe not, any suggestion where to start looking for the problem. i just purchased it . thanks mike
Try unhooking the sensor at the pump and sticking a paper clip into the plug terminals and see if it shuts down. If it doesn't then you have a bad sensor or it is overheating. Make sure it has plenty of oil in the system. Also check the scavenger line coming off of the air/oil separator to make sure it isn't plugged up.

most have safety shut downs built in, on the compressor side you will have a high discharge temp shut down, usually set to shut down @ 230 degrees F. normal temp should be @ 180F if it is running hot first check oil level on the compressor, and that the radiator is clean. some machines will have a thermostat that will only allow oil flow to go to the radiator after it comes up to about 150 degrees F. you really need to have a manual on the machine to see what other safety's it may have on the compressor and engine side as well.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much for responding. It was a little low on coolant. The comp. oil level was fine. I changed the fuel filter and the prob is gone"
ITS A POSSIBILITY AND YOU BETTER HOPE ITS NOT SPINNING BECAUSE THE SCREW COMPRESSOR IS LOCKED UP. CHECK THE OIL LEVEL IN THE SUMP AND SEE IF THE ROTOR WILL TURN WHEN NOT RUNNING. TYPICALLY THE DIESEL ENGINE WILL TURN HIGHER RPMS WHEN IT HAS NO DRAG ( NO COMPRESSOR HOOKED UP ). YOU CAN GET THE PARTS FROM INGERSOL RAND OR ANY RENTAL YARD - UNITED, PENSKE, SUNBELT, ETC. THEIR MECHANIC SHOPS ARE USUALLY FOR HIRE AND CAN EVEN INSTALL IT FOR A CHARGE. ALSO MAKE SURE NOTHING BUILT A NEST IN THERE. IF YOU REMOVE THE SCREW, MAKE SURE AND WATCH FOR SHIMS. THOSE SHAFTS NEED TO LINED UP PERFECT TO REDUCE VIBRATION. GOOD LUCK
