MIGHT CAN HELP. NOT AN I.R. EXPERT BUT KNOW A GOOD BIT ABOUT SCREW COMP. ARE YOU SHUTTING UNIT DOWN SUDDENLY WITH EMERGENCY STOP OR SOMETHING. SOME UNITS DO THIS MORE THAN OTHERS BECAUSE THE WAY THE VALVE CLOSES. BURPING OIL THROUGH THE INTAKE IS ALSO CAUSED BY SUDDEN STOP INSTEAD OF THE UNIT SLOWLY SHUTTING DOWN AND THE OIL IS RUNNING BACK SLOWLY. THE UNIT ACTUALLY TURNS BACKWARDS A LITTLE BIT. YOUR OIL SHOULD NOT COST THAT MUCH. YOU CAN CONTACT ME FOR PARTS AND PRICING ON THE OIL. YOU CAN SAVE ALOT OF MONEY WITH AFTERMARKET SERVICE PARTS AND OIL -THEYRE JUST AS GOOD AS OEM.I WOULDNT USE 30W OIL ! YOUR POOR AIR DELIVERY MAY BE AFFECTED BY WORN PARTS DUE TO LUBRICATION. HOW OLD IS UNIT? MODEL # ? CONTACT ME JBRIDGERS@CA-EQUIP.COM FOR INFO & PRICING. ME AND 1 TECH WOULD PROBABLY COME DOWN AND FIX IT FOR YOU FOR AN ALL EXPENSE TRIP FOR FREE. WE ARE IN NC AND DONT GET OUT ENOUGH.

Ingersoll Rand SSR EP60 60hp Compressor w/ Intellisys 39817655 controller. Need to reset target pressure. What is the secret button sequence to access programming mode on this controller? I am aware of...


OK, Compressor should be shut down and showing (ready to start) in display. Press load/unload button once then press hidden right button within 3 seconds. This will let you access the set point program. It will include language, temperature and pressure, rated pressure,etc. Make sure you look at the data tag affixed to the unit and see what the rated pressure is for your unit. You can endanger yourself and equipment by over pressurizing the components of the compressor.

What does alarm start fault mean on the control panel on a ingersoll rand ssr ep-30 air compressor


I use to start up a 25 HP Ingersol screw type compressor. The only alarms I got were from power spikes which just needed the reset button to be pushed, then the on button - and the low oil sensor would shut it down and give an alarm when the tank was about half way down. They will blow up with no oil so there is a saftey margin on oil level.

I have an Ingersol Rand SSR-EP40SE Rotary screw Air compresor. We ordered a new control panel for the unit because the old panel had a burnt resisitor. The new panel was installed and wont start the unit...


First you need to program the controller. Controllers do not come programed for a specific compressor. You will need to enter factory set point and and set all parameters. Horse power, pressure, DOL start or wye delta start etc. The new controller is probably set incorrectly. Look at factory set points on the old controller and copy all the parameters and then set the new controller to those set points.
