Intermittently, our Ingersoll Rand compressor will run without shutting off due to it not getting up to pressure. When this happens, I've removed the intake air filter and no air is being drawn in. After shutting the compressor down and restarting it (sometimes several times - sometimes after letting it sit overnight) we'll hear a knocking sound several times and the pressure will begin to build until it reaches the correct PSI and then stops. We don't seem to have a leak because the pressure doesn't drop after it is up to pressure and shuts off. Wondering if this is an intake valve problem or possibly a solenoid valve issue?
