Question about Porter Cable C2002 150 Psi 6 Gal Compressor
Assuming that it's used in an open-air spot so that the intake air is cool, hot compressed air means the head is running hot.
Most small-to-mid sized compressors run warm after a few minutes, and some run fairly hot after 10 minutes.
If the hose is too hot to hold after 20 minutes, the first suspect is friction within the compressor's head.
This could be caused by poor circulation due to a low-quality oil.
It could also mean a blockage in the air-delivery system (ie: oil-dust gunk at a fitting causing restriction, making the motor work harder than normal.
Flush the oil reservoir, pull the feed lines one-at-a-time and flush out. Pull the intake filter and blow out the head & valves.
Refill the reservoir with Craftsman compressor oil.
