Just create an air leak in the high pressure line before the check valve and let it blow to cool it down.

I would have a house style box fan or something on that before dark.
What does surplus center have for a 120v fan?
I think the fan should run after the compressor kicks off anyway,kicking off just when the compressor is at its hottest is dumb,it needs a cool down time period.

Randy and Walker,

Not really sure what you guys mean....I'm a bit challenged with words ....prefer pictures!!

Could you explain ...the compressor is 220v by the way.....does that make a difference to a 110v fan, or is the fan powered independently from the compressor?

Thanks again.

I think walker was saying just put a hole in the air line to blow on the compressor head to cool it down. I think he was joking, because the compressor would never shut off with that hole though.

You could easily run a 120v fan on that compressor. You just tie into one of the hot wires, and then the neutral wire to run the fan. There are two 120 v wires that make up the 220 (240)v power.

use two fans wired in series 120 +120 = 240 volts.
BUT
the two fans must be identical no mixing.
