Be good if we knew what the two hole openings you refer to were on... the regulator... or what?

Why not have a look at the REGULATOR page and the video on regulators on this site for more info?

After that, if you have questions, please post them here as a comment.

Cheers,

Bill

High air temp light on my Quincy QT-5

by Dave
(Nebraska)

Lately, my high air temp light is not allowing the compressor to run. I have a separate electrical panel box that this light is on, with start and stop buttons. It's not that hot inside the room. This is the first time that it won't just reset and turn back on...any thoughts?

Dave, am I understanding correctly that the high temp light comes on when the compressor is running, and that shuts it down, and it won't restart?

I doubt it's the light that is the problem, but a high temperature cut out of some kind. If that is the case, your compressor motor may be running hot, and that's what is causing the thermal cut out.

It's not the light, it's either something to do with the panel / cut out wiring, or the compressor is overheating from the sounds of it.

Good luck.

Older quincy blows breaker

by Brian
(Iowa)

I purchased an older quincy 214 compressor driven by a baldor 5hp motor.

Before even installing it I had the motor completely overhauled by a reputable baldor dealer with new capacitors, bearings, etc.

The plate specifies 30A circuit. I ran a dedicated 30A 110 circuit to the motor (it is set up for 110 but can be 220).

It will start and run with no effort for maybe 30 seconds and blow the breaker.

Nothing is getting hot but there is really no time for it to get hot. I am at a loss. As I write this I wonder if perhaps something about the 220/110 wiring option to the motor is wrong but if that were the case I would not think it would run at all, ideas?

Starts up fine, runs 30 seconds, then blows the breaker... hmmm, during that 30 seconds, are you seeing any pressure rise in the tank at all? Should be some.

My thoughts are, if you are seeing pressure rise in the tank, that it could be a faulty pressure switch.

I'm not an electrician, but like yourself, I would think that if the wiring to the compressor were that wrong, it would blow the breaker right away, not after 30 seconds.

Cheers,

Bill
