I have a 19.1 CC Rotary that is getting so hot that water boils when sprayed onto the shell. The compressor says its thermally protected and its not shutting off but water boils at my elevation at roughly 100c.
I can add a fan blowing directly on it but I am concerned this may be a symptom of a bigger problem. The direction I am leaning is a failure in the oil separator where the oil is not being returned quickly enough. Now I have spare oil separators and I fully plan to swap out the oil Separator and possibly the compressor tomorrow but before I do that I want to make sure this isnt normal for a 19.1cc matsush1ta compressor under the brand Panasonic...
Note max operating conditions:
Condensing Temp. 149°F 65°C
Return Gas Temp. 95°F 35°C
Discharge Gas Temp. 239°F 115°C
Motor Wire Temp. 266°F 130°C
