what can cause a GA22 atlas copco compressor to spill all the oil out from the intake valve?


i check it,clean all the spill, refill the tank and start , it was working fine again.

yes, there is a thermostat valve located right below the oil filter

sounds like this compressor is in need of service, i suggest you order an 8000 hr kit and and have someone who knows what they are doing take care of your compressor

Same thing happen again,

i was told that compressor was running and it was smoking, when i got there somebody was already cleaning the spill oil,

i checked , add oil, and run it again but it was running fine ,

after a while the temp was reaching 240 degrees and a red alarm led came up,

i stop it and clean the cooler completely and try again , this time the temp came up to 220 deg,

i would like to know if this model have a thermostatic valve on it, that's the only thing i am thinking which could be wrong at this time,

please see if someone can give me an idea on this issue, thanks .

Yes, could be. Assuming you have the right lube in it.

Yes.

Take off the covers and see where it's actually coming from.

A previous leak or spill?

Oil separator?
