SOURCE: My lincoln welder/generator Ranger 8 will not idle

Sounds like your CT or CT board is bad. CT stands for Current Transformer. A CT senses an increase in voltage draw or current, which will trigger the idle solenoid.

My lincoln ranger 8 has excessive weld spatter compared and the auto idle dosent kick in very fast when I strike off to weld delayed or sticks my rod. My other ranger 8 no issue same heats. Also


weld current and idle control on this machine is controlled by the main circuit board, you mention that you a second ranger 8 that does not exhibit the same problem, you are fortunate in this, remove the board from the functioning machine, install it into the troubled machine, this should correct your problem, you can contact a weld supply store to purchase a replacement pc board

301 wont high idle when striking arc


There is a small electronic control board inside the welder that senses current flow and pulls up throttle. It could be the board has a problem, or the throttle solenoid itself. You'll have to do a bit of checking.Check for loose connections or blackened components on the control board.
