SOURCE: When shutting down the compressor, oil comes out intake filter

hi there,
well,if your air compressor was shut off this due to pressure switch w/c auto switch off your compressor,the pressure switch acquired already the cut off pressure.if the pressure goes down the cut in set up reached it will start your compressor
to run.
regarding oil spillage when shutting down check the oil level on the sight glass of crankcase
a red line indicate oil should not exceed on that level line,if the oil exceed try to drain oil.,on the side bottom of engine there is a drain plug.until on limit level .,besure that machine is shut off/breaker is off.have a nice day don't forget to rate me,thank's

SOURCE: 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°.

SOURCE: ingersoll Rand SSR compressor shuts down loaded or

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









I am assuming this has a Intellisys controller.

SOURCE: compressor runs loaded continuously even in low/no demand periods

Each compressor should be checked several times per year as to length of time it takes to fill an empty tank to set pressure. This will provide chart of performance / efficiency. I believe that compressor #2 is not running to full capacity. If compressor # 2 is suffering from leaking valves or headgasket the head and air discharge temp will higher than compressor #1. Good luck!

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.

What cuases high a/e discharge fault on ingersol rand air compressor

Dirty coolers are always associated with high discharge temps,always make sure your coolers are clean
compressor oil filters being clogged can also raise your temp n cause the unit to over heat,and on the much bigger machines if the compressor oil pump fails then you will have severe over heating as the oil flow to the cooler is assisted by the pump!!things like regulating pressure should always be adjusted to the machines specs so it doesn't over pressurize n put load on your airend while the engine is at idle.

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

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?)

Air compressor starts and builds air then idles and when it goes to rebuild air it dies

if your saying it wont recover from idle down mode back to full speed , this might be the IR fuel pump/regulator problem (a pressure gauge will need to be added to verify this ) , if so save your money go with an aftermarket pump it'll last longer

Won't build top pressure an shut off

It sounds like your pressure switch is not set correctly. It is possible it is set too high for the compressor you have.

My 15 HP Ingersoll Rand Air Compressor doesn't start at times due to some load. Heard that there is some air getting caught in the Piston Head post its cut off point and hence there is too much

These pumps have unloaders to help the motor from being overloaded at startup, one type is centrifugal that is built to work off the crank, the other can be a pressure release valve that is set up to release the pressure in the chamber after it shuts down after full pump up. This is typically head as air escaping right after the compressor stops running after a complete fill.

Here is more information on the pressure release unloader.

Good Luck,

I have an Ingersoll Rand EP30 air compressor which has emptied its coolant out of the air inlet onto the floor. What are the probably causes and their remedy?

The unit was not turned off correctly or it shut itself down due to high temp or other problem what happens is that when the compressor is loaded (producing air) the inlet valve is open which if shutdown the pressure withing the compressor will escape through this open inlet valve which will contain oil also

If this type of compressor is run for any length of time in the wrong direction you will do damage for sure now if this unit is shut down while it is loaded (producing air) it will push lubricant out of the inlet filter most of the time people hit the emergency stop button to shut it done which is wrong the compressor should be unloaded first which when unloaded the inlet valve will be closed which then the compressor will be running unloaded and can now be shut down using the off button or switch not sure which one you have other reasons why this could happen failing load/unload solenoid usually the vent is plugged or bad minimum pressure check valve

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.
