Question about Welding Tools
The machine will arc but will not weld.
Hi, put the setting on 150 amps, and see if the welder welds. do you have a gas or electric welder?
some welders have a reset botton in front. tell me how many amps your welder produces.
If this doesn’t work for you please write back. Thanks,

If the idle is not working, then it is either you idle solenoid attached to the carberator or your idle board is bad. If you apply 12Vdc to the idle solenoid is should move, if not then the solenoid is shot, no good. If it works then you idle board is bad. Also, check to see if you are 60Hertz by measuring at the outlet with a frequency meter. I recommend a Fluke meter. You should have 120Vac and 60HZ at the outlet. If the frequency is low then your engine speed needs to be increased. The idle solenoid could be causing all these problems.

Mine was doing the same, spoke with the technitions and they told me to undo the connector from the hand piece to the machine at the machine, you then need to disassemble this connector and look to see if one of the white wires is dissconnected, if so you need to carefully push the gold plated pin out the back of the connector towards the cable, solder the wire back on and reassemble and it should work.
If not contact the head office and they were very helpfull.

check your input power connections on the primary side of the welders transformer, then if its an infinite control welder check that control,otherwise if it's a plug- in selectable amperage check these connections,it sounds like the infinite control is getting dirty and not passing all the current it shows on the control, also double your O.C.V. on the secondary and see if its with-in welder specs
