Devair c15 rotary screw runs hot then shuts down

devair c15 rotary screw runs hot.


changed oil, air filter, cleaned heat exchanger,

I checked the air coming out of the top and it reads 88f. the gauge rear around 90f.

the compressor goes into standby run on time, then temp. jumps to 100 plus compressor shuts down .

in the trouble shooting guide under running hot, they say thermo valve may be faulty, I under stand it divert hot oil thru cooler as compressor heats up.

next may be thermostat is faulty, or a temperature sensor is faulty. oil filter blocked.

have u run in to any similar problems with these units

Sounds like you're on the right track - I don't have specs on this, but 100 degrees F. is not all that hot, depending on what exactly is being measured.
