SOURCE: 1989 Ingersoll Rand 185 diesel compressor shuts down under load

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.

The sullair 185 has a low oil pressure override button that you have to hold in while starting. after the oil pressure builds up(takes about ten seconds) you can release the button and the machine should continue to run.
