Question about Welding Tools
Take rod sizes 1.6 to 3.2 but using size 2 rods at the correct set up, still cutting off too regularly-under a minute. Before this problem, a relative used it at the maximum set up using size 3 rod. I wonder if this is the cause to this problem. Also wonder if tere is an over heat fuse to change, a reset button to press or any other internal problem inside cover to be fixed? as it appears, no other outside switch apart from the on/off and ampere setting.
Sounds like an earth leakage on the transformer AC set ,or a bad joint on the circuit board on DC. if the power output is forced above its rated duty cycle then the heat gnerated can cause all sorts of problems on the circuit card/s, this intermittent on off syndrome tends to indicate a bad joint, but the problem is where, you would be better getting your local welding distributor to have it checked out, be careful because they will probably charge you for stripping it down then, if the set is goosed, you will get the set back in bits, weigh the cost of repair against a new unit and charge it to your relative.?
