My type 30 slows down when the tank pressure reaches close to 100 psi.. motor is new as this caused old one to burn up,, what can it be?


1. Are you sure the motor is wired for the correct voltage? If you have 230V 3PH,Make sure that you do have 3 hot legs. you should have L1-1+7, L2-2+8, L3-3+9 and 4+5+6 connected together. If it is wired for 480V it will not have enough torque. Check rotation. There should be an arrow on pully (large one on compressor)

I have a ingersoll rand type-30,model#2475 7.5 hp,3 phase.need a wire diagram or how do you wire up the low oil and pressure switch? this is a used compressor with wiring still conected, has 3 leads to the...


from what you are describing it sounds like you are missing a couple wires somewhere or you do not know what you are looking for. The pressure switch, low oil switch motor starter coil, and overload relay should be wired in series to provide a control circuit for the motor starter. I would highly advise seeking the help of a certified electrician if you are not experienced in working with these machines. You can not only risk personal injury, but also damage a lot of expensive electrical item's real quick if it is not done correctly.
