You must use a compressor oil for that

You can pick up a bottle at Home Depot or Lowe's

Mix oil and water on motor

Ok, sounds like you are having water vapor condense in your crankcase, must be pretty humid where you are.
1- Make sure the crankcase has a vent on it somewhere.
2- Be sure you are running the compressor long enough to get the oil hot enough to evaporate any water that does get in there. If the compressor is over sized and just runs a few times a day it may not run long enough to flash off the water that does collect.
3- That unit looks pretty big if you sized it to spray paint with it may be way too big for your normal shop use (see 2 above).

What causes compreesor to blow oil plug and breather filter while running

Sounds like you have a cylinder bad and the compression is blowing by the piston or rings and building up in the crankcase. This what they call blow by on a car engine.

My air compressor gets HOT when you run it for 10 to 15 mins. ,I mean HOT,not the motor but the compressor pump and it kicks the breaker.I have a 6.5 hp 80 gal. Black Max two stage pump by Coleman, can you...

Sounds like you have a rod or maybe a bearing bad or possibly a piston starting to seize. Maybe all may be on the way out. Have you checked the oil. Is it at the proper level. These units are not pressure lubricated but splash lubricated. So when the rod goes to the bottom of it's stroke it hits the oil in the crankcase and splashes oil thru out the unit. (simply explained) Also if these units are only used a short time condensate can build in the crankcase. Then you're trying to lubricate with water. If it's binding bad enough to trip the breaker I would say it's to late to try and save. Unless it's still under warranty the only solution is to disassemble and repair,or replace depending on the damage done. Good luck!

We have a T30 Air compressor and we found this compressor full of water inside the crankcase, where the oil is. and know when we turn it ON it start crearing presure inside the crankcase. do you know what...

As you probably already know when you compress air, the moisture in the air falls out and ends up in your tank. If you're rings are going bad, and allowing blow by into the crankcase, the moisture will go with it. Two things happen, first the water displaces the oil which rises to the top and probably goes out with the air,and secondly then the bearings and cylinders don't get lubed, and wear even more. You will probably require new rings, and depending on wear, boring and new piston(s)

Should I lay the compressor on its side?

I would advise you drain the crankcase of oil before you do that.

Oil comes out thru crankcase vent

sounds like piston ring blowby or a broken piston, teardown will reveal the broken parts.
