Question about Air Tools & Compressors

1 Answer

I have a IR 2475 compressor that is only a year or two old. It is making a lot of noise so I started an investigation and discovered the crankshaft bearing is very loose allowing the flywheel to move up and down about 1/8" I need to get it fixed quickly. Can I just replace a bearing or what? Thanks, Charles Warner

My samsung fridge/freezer is only 3 years old, just started making loud noise, then when the fridge is opened sounds like the fan making a loud noise that goes down and stops. Then not long after that...


Compressors usually make a thrumming/humming noise, so yes, this sounds like the fan. It could be something touching the fan blades, like ice or a wire. If you can unplug the fridge and remove panels near the fan, you may discover the problem.

IR MODEL 2475 COMPRESSOR 7.5 HP, MOTOR WILL NOT START COMPRESSOR AND HUMS, CAN TURN PUMP AND MOTOR BY HAND, MOTOR WILL START SLOWLY WITH DRIVE BELT DISCONNECTED


The WEG 7.5 hp motors often blow the start capacitors. The box on top of the motor has 4 caps in it. 2 start and 2 run caps. Mark the cap wiring or make you a diagram to have at replacement time. Remove one or both of the caps. It is easier to remove two wires and pull the start caps out as a set. They are the black, large ones. I think they are 286 Micro farad caps. To get identical caps you may have to order from IR. If you can find a WEG motor shop they may have them. I usually go to grainger or my local motor shop to purchase. The ones here will be larger in size but can be fitted into the box on the motor. Also inspect the wiring in the box. I have found some wires with insulation gone. This may have caused your problem or a problem latter down the road.

How much oil does the 2475 hold


A 2475 has no way to tell how much oil is in it other than removing the oil fill plug and looking unless a low oil level switch has been installed. You should fill this unit to the bottom of the oil fill plug threads. It's less than 2 quarts. IR does have a spec sheet that tells the exact amount. I don't have it available right now!

My 2475 will not start up, I can override that by pushing the button on the Contactor


Does this unit have a low oil level switch? If so make sure it's full of oil. If not you have a bad starter coil.

My compressor 2475 ir (5hp) has no dip stick or oil level glass;only oil cap.how much oil is needed for proper level?


In the owners information your compressor takes the 1 bottle of IR oil that comes with it. If you have a local tractor supply company or another company who carries IR you might check with them, it is the only oil i would recommend for your unit.

Fan started making noise


I have one of these, and every so often, the fan would start making a loud clicking noise. I discovered that if I shut the fridge off for a while and left the door open to defrost it, it'd work fine again for a while before the noise came back. Apparently, some ice was building up between the metal heat-sink and the fan, causing the fan blades to scrape against the ice/frost build-up and make the "tick, tick tick" noise.
There is no compressor in the Avanti EC15W-2 mini fridge. It uses a simple Peltier junction device to transfer heat from the inside of the fridge to the outside/rear of the unit. So it should never get very loud at all, unless one of the two fans in it is acting up in some way.

Correct rotation of copressor


Checked all the IR compressors in stock and all turn counter-clockwise facing pulley, however you could check the pump for fan angle on pulley. The fan on the compressor pulley blows air towards the pump. Generally, pumps turn CC because that would allow for the use of gasoline engines which all turn CC. Please email you questions, and Good Luck.
