How old is the compressor ? This trouble shooting is directed to the vane and screw types of air compressors.

Caution,
For exact information on the equipment you are working on, go to the manufacturer’s maintenance and repair manual.

Here are some possibilities.

Compressor does not reach design pressure or capacity:
Air Pressure safety valve is leaking
Receiver air valve is open
Unloader valve is leaking
Loose Piping or fittings

Compressor will not load or unload:
Unloader valve defective
Air control valve is sticking or dirty
Unloader pressure is improperly set too high or too low
Water in the control lines
Plugged control lines

The air compressor CFPM is low:
Dirty air compressor air filter
Defective air intake control valve
High idle on power source improperly set
Damaged or worn rotor blades

SOURCE: looking for a maintenance manual

I worked at a tool rental store for several years that had many ir185 compressors. They had many manuals in boxes that were not used. I just bet that you could call or visit rental yards in your area that rent that unit and find all the information that you need. Talk to the service tach, most will be glad to help if not with manual, the info that you need to keep your machine in good service. IR service kits are available through wwgrainger.com. enjoy

SOURCE: need to know what compressor oil to use for 185

Use Ingersoll Rand Pro-Tec fluid only. It hold 3 gallons. If you have a sight glass on the receiver tank do not fill it over 1/2 way up.

My 185 ingersoll rand tow behind compressor shuts down when I open the valve to blow out sprinkler system...why


I worked at a tool rental store while attending college and noticed that IR compressors would shut down for a variety of safety reasons. Most common was low oil (engine), high temp (engine) and high air temp (compressor) and safety valve measuring access flow or free flow as if the hose becomes disconnected from tool (OSHA safety). Check all the safety control features of your unit for possible answer. Good luck

My rotary screw air compressor model SSREP100H


It's just too hot. Blow out the radiator weekly. There is an oil temp switch that might need replaced but the radiator is the most common problem with screw compressors. You can check the settings in the control panel, where you turn it on and off. It should be set for a high temp of 185°.
