Yes it is always a good practice to bleed the tank down. there is a check valve in the top of the receiver tank that keeps air from blowing back Thur the system. However if it's leaking you will have pressure on the oil sump. As for type of oil use a 30 weight non detergent oil. Recommend using ir's t30 all season or another type made for air compressor's.

Low oil pressure. Are you adding a lot of oil. Have you check the oil level. Switch could also be bad.

Heat in that location noted is to be expected, but to the degree that it is should be of some concern.

When was the oil changed in the compressor last?

If you are running with a multiviscosity oil, use it only if the manual indicates it. Running straight weight oils, especially in extreme conditions is prudent insurance against failure. If you are running 10W20 for example- run 20 weight instead until regular air temps are below freezing- then the switching to 10 weightshould be a consideration..

The oil sump serves 2 purposes- 1- Coolant. 2-lubrication.

However I think the bearings in in the compressor are needing attention.
More because it sounds like there is an oiling problem in the compressor itself. At an absolute minimum it sounds like the head should be pulled to inspect for galling in the cylinder walls and to look for trace oil on the cylinder wall.

Blowing fluid out hose

The only way trans oil can get from your trans to your hose/tools is if you have bad piston(s), rings and/or cylinder(s). You'll have to removed and inspect the condition of the piston(s), rings or cylinder(s) and replace what's damaged.

What size breaker do I need for a Ingersoll Rand Model TS4N5

Look at the motor tag. It should give you the run amps which I believe is about 22. What ever your amps are on the tag multiply by 1.5. If it comes up like my example (11 + 22 = 33) go to the next available size. Like 35 or 40. This should size the breaker to get the unit through start up.

Can't get it to come on when it's cold.

Warm it up with a heat lamp, hair dryer etc. Release all air pressure from the tank first. Check your oil and use only compressor oil.

Excessive oil in the air tank and air filter housing (more than a pint). I would like to know which component is not working. it is a 2 year old UP6-10

it might be a cracked piston ring that is causing your problem, or the wrong viscosity oil. I would change the oil first using the right weight and check again. Another issue might be a stuck or sticking valve. Let me know if you need more assistance
