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.

I have an Emerson Refrigerator Model No: CR286BSE and it out of nowhere it stopped working and know it is making a clicking noise and will not cool anything at all but the compressor gets hot.


Your compressor is shot, I would recommend not letting it run, it could over heat and develop a leak, the refrigerant is extremely toxic, and if it ignites creates Phosgene gas which is incredibly dangerous. IF, you can find a compressor for the model it may be worth it to replace it, or buy a new one. Good Luck!

I have a hoshizaki km 255bah compressor start then quits


Is the compressor overheating when this happens? Feel the top of the compressor when this is happening and tell me if the top of the compressor becomes extremely hot to the point that you cannot keep your hand on the compressor. Reason I ask you to do this is that it is possible that the compressor is short cycling because of a defective start relay and/or run capacitor. Let me know if the compressor is overheating of simply turning itself off. I will post a service manual if interested but would like to e-mail you the service manual for your Hoshizaki KM-255BAH because of copyright issues. You may contact me HERE if you like. Thanks Sea Breeze

What would cause hose from pump to tank on a porter cable pancake comressor get extremely hot when running


I too had noticed the heated compression rubber hose.. the older models for smaller united were made to last longer and used 1/4" copper tubing and flang fittings kence, less rubber seals to fail over the long run, although porta cable says the compressor has a three year limited warranty for this product.. Mine has started to leak just over a year and only used a few times maybe twice a month. So even ubder light duty this unit has failed not just the drain plug seal,, but internal seals inside the compressor. I have returned this ubit for a full refund. So to answer your question, "what would cause a rubber hose to get extremely hot" it is normal for all compression tubings and hoses to run hot to the touch when running long periods but it is also a problem when poor engineering and lack of quality components such as rubber seals fail and cause leaks and so causing excessive heat and internal damage to other seals under such extremes..May I suggest you contact porta cable and ask them about your trouble with the product and their three year limited warranty

I have a brand new mini fridge, the type with a freezer as well. Its compressor has been getting extremely hot lately (too hot to touch), but it's still keeping everything cold and the freezer is still...


It is possible that the setting of the thermostat is too high and that the compressor is finding it hard to reach the set temperature thereby making it work so hard so as to heat up. Now as per design this must not happen but if the thermostat or the auto defrost does not work then the compressor might be working too much and so will BURN OUT in the long run. The compressor might warm up but not HEAT.
So if the fault stays with a lower settting please contact dealer for warranty. If not this seems to be a fault with the compressor and you must stake claim for warranty.

I have a Magic Chef Refridge MCBR 1010W that has stopped cooling, fan runs and you can hear it kick in but then kicks off? An Ideas?


If the compressor kicks in that tells you the compressor relay and board are probably good. HOWEVER, when you say it kicks off right away that is not a good indication! It sounds like a compressor problem. Is the compressor extremely hot or is the condenser coils icing up? If so, I wouldn't invest the money into repairing it, because it would cost more to repair than to replace.

Pressure will not build up in the tank and the silver tubing gets extremely hot.


There is a moisture release valve under the tank that may have been left open. If so, close it and the pressure will build. The reason the tubing heats up is because it is running so long.

Compressor is extremely hot


Compressor will be hot to the touch. You stated the fan was replaced and then said the fan is not cooling. If you replaced the fan and it is now operating, reinstall the panel you removed to install the fan motor. That panel determines proper air circulation to cool the system.
