2007 Ingersoll Rand 375 WIR tow behind shutting down after 30 minutes.


I have a problem where my compressor runs for 30 minutes and cuts out, So I changed all the fuel filters, air filters, compressor filter, checked the low fuel cut off switch, but still just shuts down like someone turned it off, showing a 29 code. I took it to the local John Deere engine dealer and they connected it to a John Deere scanner that told them something in the compressor side is shutting down the engine and charged me $175.00
I was told by the compressor guy in Portland that often the temperature element (Thermostat) in the compressor cooling line sometimes gives trouble and cause a shutdown. I replaced it another $133.00 and no difference. Their is no sign of any heating or over pressurization, does not matter if we using the air or it's just idling. The first sign of trouble was it would slow down for about ten seconds when using every hour or two than keep going.

nomenclature
by: Doug in s.d.ca.

Is ECU = ECM or are they distinct?

Cummins says ECM, for example.

Anyway, happy to hear it's fixed - sorry it was so damn 'spensive.

Thanks for keeping us updated.

Well after going back and forth the Doosan guys charged me $850.00 to diagnose and tell me the ECU computer was bad, gave me a bid but the John Deere dealer was four hundred Dollars cheaper they installed the part, had to program it with their computer now its running good, cost me $ 3,300.00

So darn frustrating.
by: Doug in s.d.ca.

I feel ya.

If it were mine, I might try to find and replace the ECM temperature sensor and fix/replace it.

Failing that, if I found that it operated normally with the ECM dismounted from its normal place, I'd look to find a way to remount it elsewhere, and/or add a fan to keep it cool.

Good luck. Let us know what you wind up doing, please.

375 ingersol rand shutting down

So I picked my compressor up and the place removed the ECM from its mount and the compressor runs continually, the heat and vibration is shutting down the ECM for some reason so they suggest replacing it.

The Compressor dealer who is the same Company group as the John Deere equipment dealership but a different division wants $2,351.00 for the ECm and a $200 core charge.

I called the John Deere equipment division and they want $1,598.21 for the same item. Go figure! anyway I am looking for an alternative to just pay.

The Ingersoll Rand outfit charged me $ 763.00 to tell me that I need a new ECM I originally thought it was something to do with the engine management so I took it to the john Deere equipment division since they have a diagnostic devise to plug in the engine, they told
me the compressor is turning off the engine.

Doosan the Compressor people said the compressor has no sensors to turn off the engine. So now I paid them $ 175.00 to connect the diagnostic tool.and the other guys $763.00 I am into my compressor $ 938.00 and have not fixed anything except I know that if we dismount the ECM the machine does not shut down.

So darn frustrating.

Geeeeze...

Is that to say 2Gs for the ECM?

Maybe a fan on the ECM?

Or, if you can get the actual part number for the ecm, you might find one on fleabay - I know there are Elektronikon controllers out there, so worth a look, I think.

Good luck.

375 ingersol Rand compressor shutting down after 30 minutes
by: Charles Hibberd

So After going to the local John Deere engine dealership who charged me $175.00 to tell me that it's not the engine electronics turning off the engine but something on the compressor. I took it to the Ingersoll Rand Doosan dealer which is the same company Pape but a different division. They called me this morning and told me the ambient temperature sensor inside the ECm is faulty and they spent 10 hours, they told me that I was going to get a deal and the charge is $930.00 to replace the ECM will cost me $2,986.00
I need to find someone that can either repair the ECM sensor or have a rebuilt on.

Just 29
by: Doug in s.d.ca.

should have another light. Maybe controller malfunction, then.

Hope they find it OK without charging an arm and a leg.

Let us know what happens, OK?

Thanks.

by: Charles

The engine shuts off at twenty five to forty five minutes. and has just the code 29
I took it to the Doosan Ingersoll Rand dealership service to figure it out. Have not heard back. Hope they do not fleece me.

OK. Let's clarify something.

You say you have a code 29. Is that in conjunction with an alert/shutdown, or engine fault? Or anything? Are all the indicators operational?

Either way, the Deere guy says it's the compressor, and the compressor says it's the engine?

Is that correct?

375 WIR tow behind shutting down

This has a John deere engine and does not have the traditional shut down solenoid. It has a controller on the back of the fuel pump which the computer controls the voltage and that controls the rpm.

Something feeding the computer is calling for the computer to shut down the engine. I took it to the John Deere shop and they connected there diagnostic machine and told me something from the compressor controls are sending a signal to shut off the engine

It runs for 25 minutes on a hot day and 45 minutes on a cold day.

Engine Shuts off
by: Doug in s.d.ca.

Based on the previous symptom, I'd say there may be a problem with the engine stop solenoid. Either bad wiring or something controlling it.

So I'd start with that and work back, if the solenoid appears to be malfunctioning.

Good luck.
