Was that "the earth cable burns out"- earth cables will burn out due to
1] the connections are loose and
2] the size of cable being used is too small,
increase the size of the earth cable, many manufactures fit a very thin cable to the set which are cheep and nasty, depending on the amperage used multiply by 11/2 times, tell your supplier what the sets maximum amperage on the set and he will give you the correct size. don't get it to long, and always get copper cable not aluminum.this also applies to the welding cable.

I get an intermittent loud hum using NAD AV316 amplifier, with stereo speakers(B connection) with phono input from Dual 606 turntable. Hum increases/changes when tone arm on turntable is touched.

The hum of course is the 60 cycle line AC voltage. Make sure that the routing of the AC power plug is as distant as possible from the stereo RCA cables.

The most likely problem is the connection of the phono cartridge to the wires in the arm. These connections usually are silver plated and become oxidized creating a bad connection. Remove the cartridge and using a fine eraser polish the connections. There is a ground connection that makes the five wire connection. Be super carfull these terminals are very easy to break

The phono connections to the stereo is very low voltage subject to interference. The connection to the magnetic pickup at the tone arm is low impedance and is inductive. Any poor connection between the cartridge up to the AV316 will produce this hum. Continue to check connections and swap cables with a known good to resolve.

I have switched the left and right cables to ensure that the cable is not the problem.

Hope this helps?

Is there any buttons on welder to get a earth I have brand new jasic 250 all set up but cant seem to get a earth no spark did I do something wrong

The welding rod lead has to go into the +ve while the current return which looks like a big alligator clip goes into -ve and is clipped to the metal object you wish to weld.
if you are using mig then check the little black switch under the left zero has been switched to mig.
there is a orange power switch thing on the back of the welder that needs to be checked also .

Ba falcon won't start don't won't to buy manual just replace battery immobilizer lights.on turn key nothing

Check battery posts and terminals are shiny clean ,lead terminals and posts often get a black coating on them it acts as a insulation so make sure they are clean, then check the earth is tight where it bolts to the frame. the other cable nuns to the starter solenoid check voltage at terminal .12 volts . with a jumper wire touching the small starter terminal flash the large starter terminal, the solenoid should click in and work the starter. if not it may be at fault. also some cars have a earth coble that connects the frame to the engine ,often fitted from the transmission to the frame.

I have a 2003 ford explorer. The starter will click but the car will not start. I have had the starter tested and it tested good. I have replaced the relay fuse and have put on a new battery.How can a...

have someone turn key and you grab the battery cables and twist/ wiggle them and also pull upward on positive cable going to starter to see if it makes a better contact to start truck. I dont know who or how the starter got tested but normally if the starter just clicks it is either not enough power going to starter motor, or the starter selonoid is bad, or the starter motor is bad. so double check all cables and cable ends,and all cable contacting points. check battery for tight posts and connections.

Replaced battery, starter good, will not crank

Do the basics. Check that the battery terminal connections are clean and free of corrosion and that they are on tight. Check that the main relay is triggering when the ignition switch is engaged. follow the main cable to the starter motor and ensure that all connections are clean and tight. Check that the cable to the starter solenoid (sitting on the back of the starter motor body) has voltage when ignition is switched on. Check the condition of the earth strap between the engine and chassis and again ensure connections are free of corrosion and tight.

Hi, I have a murex tradesmig 160, when welding its like it loses its earth, but earth ok, some times get a good run, and then wont work. feeds wire but no power.

Look inside the unit (make sure the set is unpluged from the wall socket) and check the bolt that secures the cable to the socket, remove the bolt and clean the earth lead and the socket, check that the cable is ok and tight when refastend.
