You did provided manufacturer but not model, therefore advice given can be only very limited.

Ingersol i sproducing oilless as well as oil lubricated compressors, what is your type?

I assume that this one is piston, using oil.

1. Check oil level and condition, replace if needed/fill to correct level (too much is actually as bad as not enough in that case!).
2. Check inlet filter and throat if not obstructed, if encased, check if sufficient airflow through vents
3. Check and drain water from the tank, it is possible to waterlog lines if too much water condense in the tank.
4. Check air regulator settings and establish what is correct maximum for that particular machine
5. Output pressure too high, compressor runnig too high, lower output pressure
6. Output volume too high, too many tools/users on the line, reduce number of users/tools on line at same time

As motor is running without problem, you did not mentioned any, therefore driver, driver belts can be safely excluded from the equation.

From experience - seem like you need larger compressor...

Hope you find this advice useful :-)

The compressor in my 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 4x4 turns on and off while parked. It blows very cold air while driving, but blows hot and cold air while parked. To hot to sit in the truck while...


the ac system needs air through the condenser ( radiator bit in front of the radiator) to operate correctly. IT it has no air then the compressed gas is to hot and will not turn to liquid and so the high pressure switch turns of the ac compressor. No problem when you are moving as road speed provides the air flow. Get an electric fan and have it installed before the condenser and connect it to the ac compressor circuit so that it is running all the time you have the ac compressor running. not the local mechanic.When dealing with ac systems the best people to take it to is an accredited ac specialist shop

Dear, I have a question that when turn on the air conditioner, it's blowed out the hot air. How can i fix this problem to get it cool again? Thank you


You will need a service call to check for a leak in the coolant or possible bad compressor or compressor starter. If the compressor is coming on and no cool air then the coolant has leaked out and can no longer cool the unit and will need replaced by a licensed technician. If the compressor is not coming on but gets very hot then the compressor is bad, and if it is not coming on and not hot then the starter condenser is bad.

Compressor runs hot and won't build pressure


THE COPPER LINE IS SUPPOSED TO GET HOT, SCALDING HOT ACTUALLY. THE MOST COMMON REASON FOR COMPRESSORS NOT BUILDING PRESSURE IS CLOGGED AIR FILTER OR THE VALVES IN THE HEAD ARE BROKEN OR NOT OPENING AND CLOSING CORRECTLY. YOU MAY POSSIBLY HAVE A BAD AIR LEAK DOWNSTREAM BUT YOU CAN CLOSE THE DISCHARGE VALVE ON THE TANK TO ELIMINATE THAT PROBLEM. HOPE THIS HELPS OR GET YOU STARTED.

If the fan blows cold air the compressor is already on.
