Check following:

  • Direction of rotation. In case of 3-phase el motor it could be wrongly reconnected.

  • Lack of oil. Check suction line valves layout and oil tank level. Check filters for clogging.

  • Air leak in suction. Check if all required gaskets/o-rings installed.

  • Pressure control/relief valve settings. Check if it is not bypassing oil.
