Porblem with lincoln mig welder 135


Use a voltage tester to make certain you have current at the steel roller assembly that the wire feeds through. Check the diameter of the wire also, to assure contact at the feed rollers.

How do you switch the polarity switch on the 115 farmhand versa-arc mig welder. trying to switch from mig to flux core wire.


Hi:
Disconnect you ground clamp form the negative side pole and switch it to the positive pole, same for the gun disconnect the from the positive side and switch it to the negative pole.
Good luck.

I have a 125 lincoln wire feed welder. wire will feed but will not arc to weld


check you ground cable, try to strike and ark on the ground cable, if no ark test the ground circuit if the circuit is ok you will need to have the transformer tested and for that you need some specal tools.

Im looking into getting a mig and have come across the century (by lincoln) welders for 299. is this a quality welder and of same quality as a Lincoln brand.


No, it's not going to be equal to the Lincoln in all ways- but if Lincoln built it it'll be a decent machine.

In all honesty, if you can only have one welder it should be a stick welder. Mig welders are full of problems and, while ideally suited to 8 hour a day 7 days a week use, can be finicky as heck when used infrequently.

The stick welder allows you to work in all positions and all conditions, it's generally cheaper than Mig welding and it's usually faster.

Will feed wire but will not start an ark to weld


Make sure that the ground clamp is securely fastened to the workpiece.
Ensure that the power pin is fully seated into the housing where it receives the current.
Ensure that voltage and amperage settings are correct.

Welder feeding or arking


Release the wire feed rollers,turn the wire feed dial up to maximum ensure you are well away from the earth clamp, pull the triger, you should hear the relay click in, if it dosn't check the 5 mil anti serge fuse positioned on either the front of the set or on the control panel near the wire feed rollers inside the cabinet. usualy covered by a plastic screwed knob, make sure the unit is unpluged before any testing.
