I can turn the welder on and it can run all day but when I start welding with in a minute the overheat light will come on and it will stop feading wire. I'm trying to weld on mid temperature.


Have you checked so see if your power cable is the right size?? Is it a 220 or 110? If it is 110 then it will cut off after it gets hot, if it is 220 and the power cord is too small then the machine will be trying to pull more amps than the cord can handle causing it to overheat and shut off.. My husband has been a welder for 20 years.. I'm just passing along what he suggested might be the problem.. Hope this helps!

Can I use the charger with the 220 in UK ?


Unless it is rated for 220-50/110-60, you will need the converter. Besides the 110V US plugs won't plug into the 200V UK outlets.

Cannot get my generator to run on 220 mode, only runs on 110 when I disengage the auto throttle


There's a short in the 220 circuitry. Check for continuity between the two hot leads, or between the hot leads to ground

Just need to no witch one wire goes where Putin it back to gather it's a 6500 watt with two two tweenty plugs on one side of the round end and two one tens on other side


take the wires, and read them with a multi meter. checking the voltage of each line. the ones with no voltage will be your neutral wires and the ones that read 110 will go in each side of your 220 plugs, or two will go in one plug only with a jumper to the others and the bottom hole will be your neutral. you can jump one leg off the 220 plug for your 110 side and the other 2 wires from your 110 can go to ground.

Coleman powermate 4000 pops circuit breaker on the 220 side.


Don't know what you mean by "on the 220 side".

The generator has two joined circuit breakers that each are 110 volts. Between the two is 220.

If just one of those is opening WITH NOTHING PLUGGED IN, then there are only a few explanations.

1. There is a short in the wiring or the wiring has been tampered with and connected incorrectely.

2. The switch that switches the mode from 120 to 240 has gone bad, possibly with a welded contact. This would occur if the switch is changed with load on the generator. This could put a driect short on half the generator winding and cause one of the breakers to blow.

3. Worst is a winding short in the generator. Fortunately this is the least likely.

4. The 220 receptacle has been broken and insulation failed shorting one terminal to another.

10,000 watt generator 220 plug doesn't work


Most generators have several circuits incorporated within the windings. There are usually two 115v windings, one or two windings that produce power and sensing voltage for the regulator that supplies power to the armature (produces magnetic force) and sometimes a 12v winding to supply power to charge the battery. The two 115v windings power one 115v plug each and together power the 220v plug. Each outlet has a breaker and or ground fault. Since the 115v plugs are working indicates that the 220v plug must have an open/broken wire or faulty breaker. Easy to check, however you must open cover to wiring compartment and trace wires. Should be easy fix. You do not have to start engine to find broken wire. Use ohm meter instead. With engine off, Insert probes into 115v plug and obtain ohm reading. Then insert probes into second 115v plug and obtain similar reading. Look for same reading at the 220v plug (remember 2 circuits of 115v, ground and neutral). Good luck with your repair and email if you have other question.

The last time i ran my mitsubushi 8100 it put 220 through the 110 lines and burned up all my electronics in less than a minute. what happened?


Sounds like you wired it in wrong.

US domestic power supplies work on a 220V ac system, centre tapped to provide a neutral and two lives which are both 110V ac relative to the neutral, but in antiphase to one another.

Sounds like you connected one of the generator's live lines to the neutral in your wiring system. It's safe to assume that your electronics actually fried within the first second or two.

Bodging a generator into a domestic wiring system can have worse consequences than this. Unless you really understand what you are doing, and also know the local regulations, it's generally better to run an extension lead to the appliances you want to power and leave the rest of the system dead.
