SOURCE: overheating? burnt oil smell
There is a seal between the compressor and the motor that in failed condition will leak oil into motor windings causing burnt oil smell. Some hitachi compressors suffered from failed valves or head gasket causing extra heat but not oil smell. These compressors also have a thermobreaker built into the windings that when failed will prevent motor from starting or would start and run for only a few moments then open. This part is not replaceable. enjoy

sounds like toooo much oil, make sure to only have it filled to the full mark on the dipstick or the oil level line in the sight glass

Along with the oil air separators, there is a filter in the oil reservoir tank that needs to be changed every six months. You should contact a qualified air compressor shop for regular service. If the filter is not installed correctly, injury or death may occur. Pool tile cleaning uses the same compressors.
