It would be recommended to insert your oil filter, fill with oil, open the drain valve and let run for approximately 30 minutes to break in the motor and pump.

According to instructions it tells you to do this. Doesn't hurt anything doing it. I did it just for peace of mind. Will it shorten the life? No because you are talking about 30 minutes for a 100% duty cycle product that will last well of 1000 hours or more if you take care of it.

The owners manual siad nothing about a break-in period, but Ingersoll Rand did include a bottle of break-in oil.

Recently I purchase the 3 hp 60 gallon Ingersoll Rand compressor and the owners manual with that unit did say to run the compressor for 30 minutes with the drain valve in the open position. So I used the same procss for the small compressor.

Running amps is rated at 15 amps. Would be better to have a 20 amp breaker for it.
