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

After compressor turns off it leaks air from pressure switch

Sounds like you have a tank check valve leaking. It is located in top of the tank. The copper discharge line from the compressor goes into the check valve. Make sure there is no air pressure in the tank. Then Remove the large copper discharge line. Also remove the small copper line from the side of the check valve. Once the lines are removed you can remove the check valve. Most of the time the check valve needs replacing. Sometimes they have large pieces of trash holding them open.

Ingersoll-Rand Air Compressor P185WJD why would the pop off valve on the air separator keep popping off

its because the compressor is not unloading { going above 120psi} you need to check the air signal going to the unloader valve located on top of the screw, it should start putting out air at about 90psi to close the unloader. another thing is if you are getting oil in the air coming out of the front ball valve the seperator element is bad thats the filter inside the tank the pop off valave is mounted. you can check the air signal by fethering ball valve to run the machine at 90 psi the diconnect small air line on unloade to check for air signal coming from regulater

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
