Mig welder tripping breaker

I have a Solar 2114 tote mig welder. It will trip the breaker once you hit the switch to turn on. Is this a repairable problem or not?

Yiu can use both innershiel and solid core wire. All you need to do is inverse the polarity for the innershield wire (gasless wire) connect the gun to the ground and ground cable to positive side.

MyCH115v flux core welder will not feed (wheel will not run)nor will it arc.What should I look for to be the problem?


Look at the power supply feeding the unit. Has the breaker tripped? Turn the breaker off to the outlet supplying the welder and then turn ot to the, "on" position. You can't reset the breaker from the tripped position. You need to turn it, "off" first. Look at the connectors to make sure they're plugged in properly. Check to see if there is an internal breaker that might have tripped.

Welder when turn on trips the breaker


Would you write back and clarify what steps you have taken to narrow down your search? I'd like to know if the breaker is weak and needs to be replaced. Have you plugged your welder into another receptacle to see if it trips that breaker? I don't think the trigger has to do with this problem. The symptom is that as soon as you turn the welder on, it then trips the breaker. So this tells me that the electrical cord is not shorted. When the breaker trips, is there any delay or is it instant? If there is a delay, does it sound like it does while you are welding? Do you hear that "Transformer, buzzing noise"? The trigger activates the feed motor, that alone isn't enough to trip this breaker. Which make and size welder do you have? I really am dependent on detailed information, you are my eyes and ears. Please write back with any questions or new details and I'll do my best to help, good luck.

When the welder is first turned on I can weld with gas for about 5 seconds. Then the breaker trips. ( i have the proper wiring and breaker). The more times I reset the breaker the shorter the weld time...


Hi:
Just make sure that if you are using an extension cable between your machine and the power outlet, this cable is at least a 12 gauge size, if you are using a 14 or 16 it's too small to handle the amps.
Other point is to check that your breaker is 20 or 30 Amp capacity.
Hope this help.

My welder only welds for about 2 seconds then trips house breaker. i have a good dedicated 20amp breaker for the welder. what could cause this? the welder breaker in back of machine does not trip.


Is enough for this machine, but probably is not a fuse dedicate it just for this end side.
If you can turn all lights off and other items that might be in use with the fuse. If you can't then upgrade the fuse to a 30amp.

Have you tried it on another outlet, say at a friends' house, etc?
Reset button on the welder tripped? Double check the breakers and all connections. If it was working before, it should work now. Try some different breakers to check for good juice. Good luck!
