Question about Ingersoll Rand Air Tools & Compressors

1 Answer

My air compressor will crank and run for 7 to 10 minutes and then die just like you turn the key off.

From a cold start the air compressor cranks and runs good. I have just serviced the engine- changed engine oil and filter, changed fuel filter and bleed all air out of fuel filter, changed air filter. On the compressor I changed the oil and seperator filter. After all the service was completed I crank the compressor and the engine ran smooth, it ran almost 10 minutes and then died just like the key was turned off. Could the engine coolant sending unit be bad?

Well you didnt mention what year or model number you got but some of the better IR compressors have a fuel saver mode that if they don't sense any change in load for like 15 minutes they shut off could be what your seeing , or could also be a safety sensor on the seperator tank not seeing any pressure build up (bad or damaged sensor?)

SOURCE: compressor wont run unless I cover the air intake where the filte

Most compressors have an in-tank check valve that prevents pressure in the tank from loading the compressor and forcing the motor into overload. The pressure switch also has an unloader that releases pressure in the system so that the motor will not strain when it recycles. When you restrict the intake, the compressor is unloaded thus the motor will continue to run. There may be a problem with the checkvalve or the motor may have a weak or failed capacitor. Some meters have a capacitor test to check if the capacitor is the problem. Reject the capacitor it it tests out of range more than ten percent. enjoy

SOURCE: compressor spits out oil when unit is stopped

MIGHT CAN HELP. NOT AN I.R. EXPERT BUT KNOW A GOOD BIT ABOUT SCREW COMP. ARE YOU SHUTTING UNIT DOWN SUDDENLY WITH EMERGENCY STOP OR SOMETHING. SOME UNITS DO THIS MORE THAN OTHERS BECAUSE THE WAY THE VALVE CLOSES. BURPING OIL THROUGH THE INTAKE IS ALSO CAUSED BY SUDDEN STOP INSTEAD OF THE UNIT SLOWLY SHUTTING DOWN AND THE OIL IS RUNNING BACK SLOWLY. THE UNIT ACTUALLY TURNS BACKWARDS A LITTLE BIT. YOUR OIL SHOULD NOT COST THAT MUCH. YOU CAN CONTACT ME FOR PARTS AND PRICING ON THE OIL. YOU CAN SAVE ALOT OF MONEY WITH AFTERMARKET SERVICE PARTS AND OIL -THEYRE JUST AS GOOD AS OEM.I WOULDNT USE 30W OIL ! YOUR POOR AIR DELIVERY MAY BE AFFECTED BY WORN PARTS DUE TO LUBRICATION. HOW OLD IS UNIT? MODEL # ? CONTACT ME JBRIDGERS@CA-EQUIP.COM FOR INFO & PRICING. ME AND 1 TECH WOULD PROBABLY COME DOWN AND FIX IT FOR YOU FOR AN ALL EXPENSE TRIP FOR FREE. WE ARE IN NC AND DONT GET OUT ENOUGH.

SOURCE: 2000 Silverado won't start

I had a 99' with a 5.3 motor and it would die on me once in awhile, and it took awhile for it to start some times. It was the fuel pressure regulator, i learned later that this motor had alot of problems with this regulator. Changing it fixed it for aboout 50 bucks and 10 minuits or work

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

SOURCE: Dewalt 4 gal air compressor will not build pressure in take.

The bleed valve is an unloader of sorts that allows the compressor to start with-out a load. It closes when the pressure in the airline reaches about 20-25lbs with good volume. If air volume is not sufficient, the valve will not close. To solve the problem lets do a few tests. A long cord will reduce power and reduce air volume. Try powering the compressor with-out extension cord. If bleed valve closes when you do not use a cord, the compressor is not getting enough voltage, use shorter cord of the 12 gauge quality and more hose to reach work. If valve still does not close, check for air leaks on all fittings including around pressure switch and drain valve with soapy water. Repair as necessary and retest. If no leaks were found, temporarily plug bleed valve port with screw/bolt and run compressor till set pressure cut-off while counting minuites/seconds. The compressor should fill and shut off within three minutes or so. If it takes an unusually long time to fill, then the reed valves /valve plate is worn and leaking pressure back into cylinger. Leaking valves will usually result in very hot discharge airline/air. Reinstall the bleed valve after test. Parts and partslist are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com . Good luck on the repair and email if you have other questions.

Check all your fuses and make sure your battery has a good connection. Your fuel system may be starting to go out. Your fuel filter may be clogged. It might be a coolant sensor or intake air temp sensor. I would try to get it tested for codes and see if anything picks up on the test. This would narrow your problem down, hopefully. MAP sensor can cause this as well. I hope this helps you. Best way it the test though. Then you will know where to start. Start with fuses though. That is a simple and cheap fix, if that is what it is.

Hi, You are getting low on refrigerant. The A/C cranks up, vaporizes all of the refrigerant available to it and the compressor shuts down. The fan continues to run.
