I have a unit that seems to be overheating. It was working fine for about an hour, now it is taking an extremely long time to get to max pressure, and it is hotter than normal. The oil level is correct and it has the oil cooler already installed. So far I have it written up for a new board (latest revision). Is there anything else I need to check?

Thanks MLC

Does it have the oil cooler?

The hotter the oil gets, the longer the unit will take to charge. Once charge time reaches 2.5-3 minutes, the board will shut the unit down.

What pressure does it try to charge to?

It does have the oil cooler. It is pumping up to over 3000psi.

Thanks MLC

Change the board and change the oil to n68. Make sure and go through your distributor for the board and request warranty consideration. You can reference this post if you wish. If the issue continues, sounds like something is generating excess heat.
