HL5401 8 GAL 1.3 HP AIR COMPRESSOR
My Model HL5401 heats up at the hose connection quickly (even after running a couple of minutes). It recently melted a hole in my coiled hose causing it to burst.
The machine is new. I just drained and replace the break-in oil after only about 25 hours to see if that was the problem but it was not.
Please let me know what is causing this and what I can do about remedy the problem.
