Question about Ingersoll Rand Air Tools & Compressors

2 Answers

Air compressor wont start

My Ingersoll Rand has gas air compressor has been a pain in the *** to use from day 1. It has always been difficult to start the first time after storage consistently taking me hours of trying, re looking up directions removing and reinstalling the spark plug, starter fluid, etc. I mean it had the tags on it when the compressor motor blew up but because it was stored with out use for such a long time it was out of warranty. Half the purchase cost to fix it. Piece of S*iT!. I want to roll it into the store in front of customers flip it over and walk out. Anyone want a boat anchor? I'm sure it wouldn't work well at that either.

Problem with these is the fuel drying out in the carb.
and the cylinder leaving deposits inside. Need to clean both out, cleaning the spark plug and the needle in the carb. once they are clean, re-assemble fill with fresh fuel and restart. when finished, make a practice of emptying it out and running till dry, pull the plug, fill plug hole with oily cloth and keep the plug safe and dry. next time it should work great..

When it shuts down, press DISPLAY SELECT button once and use the up down arrows to see the code just before shutdown.

HIGH AIREND TEMP

HIGH AIR PRESSURE

LOW SUMP PRESSURE

PRESSURE OR TEMP SENSOR FAIL

CHECK MOTOR ROTATION

MOTOR OVERLOAD

FAN MOTOR OVERLOAD

I am assuming this has a Intellisys controller.

SOURCE: 1989 Ingersoll-Rand 185 cfm air compressor will not build up air

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

WILL T21 SELECT OIL WORK IN A MODEL 2475


The solution was easier than I expected. Ingersoll Rand "Select" oil is a synthetic oil recommended by Ingersoll as better than mineral oil. T30 (mdl 2475) and T21 are different styles of compressors. So, yes "select" oil can be used in the Model 2475 compressor.

I have a Ingersoll Rand P185 WJD air compressor and I need to know the type and quantity of oil to use.


Do not use 30 wt oil. It will wreak the oil/air seperator filter. Use Ingersoll Rand Pro-Tec fluid. It will hold approx 3 gallons.
