    Let me also state for the record that this man's machine, a Giant, is not one that we sell for we sell only GiantTech, two completely unassociated companies.

Arc does not stop when foot control released

You need to get a diagram of the connector on the pedal, and check the contacts leads that trigger the power on. If the power on contacts are not opening up when you let up on the pedal then the problem is in the pedal, and you will need to open it up to find the problem. If the pedal is opening and closing as it should the problem is most likely in the welders control board. I just went through a similar problem on my Miller TIG, where the pedal wasn't the problem. If you have a bad board in the welder there are places on the internet that rebuild them, for much less than Lincoln would charge for a replacement. Try the two places listed below for circuit boards if you need them.

My tig welder wont arc unless I touch the metal with it

my guess would be the type of welding machine you have.usually there is extra switch which says start control also continious cycle , sometimes smaller machines dont have these switches to allow a wider variety of tweeking the welder ,also its ok if you have to touch the base metal cause thats what starts the contact with the work peice ,keep a arc after touching about 1/4 inch away from work peice ,also a good steady hand rest will make a good welder in any situation this should allow the arc to remaim stable with a comntinious weld arc puddle. happy welding

Thermal Arc Welder 150 GTSW went ''pop''

You badly need a service manual, you might be able to get one at the Thermal Arc home page.
Since it blew the input power breaker and let off a bit of smoke we'll take as given that something in there shorted. Inverter welders like this have a rectifier section, then an inverter section, then another rectifier section before the torch. I'd bet a little money that what went pop was one or more of the SCRs in the rectifier section. You really need the manual to do anything useful to this machine, pay particular attention to the repair sections where they talk about cold checks before powering the machine on again, it'll save you hours of replacing parts.
