HAYeeee SUPERDAVE13:
Run a wire from the + post of the starter battery and touch the other end to one of the contacts of one brush. Try to strik a arc. If no arc, touch wire to other brush lead. Hold this wire on brush lead for around 5 seconds. The brushes I'm referring to are/would be the smaller ones on the "exciter". The exciter lost it's magnetism. Now, there maybe a wire running from the alternator already in place. The brush would get its juice from the alternator. In tracing the wires from the alternator, it may go to a little square electrical device. This devise, about as square as a postage stamp, tricks the AC from the alternator into thinking it is DC. It is this little device that needs to be replaced. The welder will not operate untill there is "Excitement" from the exciter. Also there will not be any juice to your 110 electrical outlet..... I have a HOBART MEGA ARC 400 and need to replace that little device on mine. Everytime I use the machine I need to "excite" the exciter in the way I described.......Cowboy Bob

How di i wire my 225 ark welder came without a plug


I'm assuming the cord is there and it's the flat 3 wire type. The center wire is the ground and the other 2 are the power. It doesn't matter which power wire goes on which blade, they are both the same.

I have a hobart champion 16 and it will barely arc it will not make a weld it went from welding fine to doing this.


Could be something as simple as worn brushes, dirty slip rings, or a bad bridge rectifier. If you know how to check them, these are all something you could fix. If it's anything beyond those, you're best bet would be take it to a repair facility. I repaired welders for 18+ years. (just an FYI)

Welder doesnt turn on...


Have you connected the feed from your breaker box to ADJACENT lugs on a dual pole breaker? By code you must use a ganged breaker.

You should use a voltmeter to verify the plug is getting power on teh desired pins.
