SOURCE: Trigger problems

I have repaird hundreds of nail guns with a problem similar to yours. Depending on the brand and model, the problem can be repaired by checking the following. Headvalve orings should be checked for wear and any surface that the orings contact must be smooth and free from scratches. If the surfaces are scratched try to smooth with fine sandpaper and use light grease instead of oil when assembling. The safety contact foot may not be reaching high enough into the trigger to properly push in the trigger button. Check for worn spots on the trigger that may be filled in with epoxy, loose fitting trigger caused by worn roll pin or retaining pin. Some of the trigger valves as used on many bostitch nailers (tva6 valve) used a plastic pin which contacts the trigger. If this pin is loose or worn the valve should be replaced. Some tva6 valves have a vinyl looking sort of oring that fits too loose on the spool. This vinyl oring in not available by itself but if the oring fits too loose the gun will not fire and leak air. On bostitch remove the trigger and the rollpins holding the trigger valve and apply air to gun to eject valve. (use heavy glove to catch valve as it will come out with force)

SOURCE: runs but gun dosenot opreate, it is a clarke 130en

The only things I can think of are:

  • The tension on the coil of welding wire is too tight and needs slackening off.
  • The feed rollers need cleaning and the tension adjusting.
If none of these solutions solve your problem then I can not help you any further.

SOURCE: wireless flash trigger for vivitar 283

I purchased the Wein Slave Foot. The metal foot is designed to repair the plastic foot that, apparently, is prone to breakage. Mine is not broken, but I purchased the Slave Foot because the blurb stated that it would make my unit serve as a remote slave.

The setup works fine with my Sony A700 using either the built-in flash or in combination with my proprietary external Sony flash.

I have just purchased another used 283 and will be ordering the Wein Slave Foot from B&H in the morning.

SOURCE: mig welder powers up but only clicks when trigger is squeezed

1] Remove the power cable from the power. (socket on the wall) remove the top cover there should be a fuse located on the wiring panel.
2] perform all your house keping- like, all plugs and socket are tight, the correct contact tip with the the right wire size, roller/s are also the correct ones for the wire size and are turning if they are turning but not feeding the wire, then, the rollers need to be tightend , get back to us.

How do I repair a non-functioning solution trigger

The trigger has tabs on each side that snap into slots in the handle so that the trigger pivots in the slots. The slots where the trigger pivots may have broken, if so the trigger will not push the valve open and allow the water flow. If the tabs are broken you will need to replace the upper handle. If you supply me with your model number I will determine the proper part for your model.

More then likely you have a shorted component (positive or hot wire to ground). Verify that the gun/trigger assembly is in good shape and has no broken wires that are touching the ground or case (may have to disassemble). Thats the easiest thing to check, everything else is inside the unit and will take more sophisticated knowledge and equipment to diagnose.

The trigger engages a relay that starts the feeder motor. Make sure your trigger is not stuck. Listen for a "click" when you squeeze it. Next, take the side cover off and look at the motor relay. If needed, remove the motor wire from the relay and try it again. My guess is the relay has arched shut. Please let me know how this works out.

Have a clarke 125en wire feed drive wheels are not turn although it makes the same noise as it did when it worked, it just up and quit

release the tension from the WFR, pull the trigger and check the shaft that the rollers are attached is spinning if yes then the woodruff key is either missing or broken if no then the drive motor needs looking at, the shaft may have broken further along. get an electrician to check it out.

Wire does not feed motor does not run worked on all connections and it ran for about 4 feet then quit crossed trigger to see if that was the problem and got no wire any suggestions?????

does everything else work? power light come on? fan? does the trigger click? seems like you've tested everything i would have tested. maybe the motor itself. its also possible that theres an open in the wiring to the trigger. i would take the trigger back apart and do a continuity test from the beginning of the wire to the connection in the trigger. check continuity on both trigger wires. the best way to to do that is using a volt meter on either the continuity setting or resistance setting zero resistance or infanite (depending on meter) will mean there is an opening and you will either have to fix it or replace it. if you dont have a volt meter you may also try arcing across the two trigger wires closer to the welder connection.see i had this problem before but it was a faulty trigger so im thinkin if it isnt the trigger (you said you tested it) then its the trigger wiring.

Blowing fuse when trigger is operated

the wiring that you are hooked up to probably isnt strong enough, welders pull a lot of juice, you might need to re-wire your hook-up
