Hi,
Check the current control resistor with an ohm meter. The center terminal should have a smooth rise or fall of resistance when measured to one end or the other of the resistor. If the resistor and the wiring to it are OK, check the shunt in the output it'll be by the "electrode" terminal. If both are OK you probably have a bad control board.

Regards,
Carl

Contacts of the main contact relay "CR-1" are likely fused together completing the circuit. Otherwise the trigger switch is fused closed.

The main contactor can sometimes be released, then dressing the contacts with a small point file (Small mill ******* about 1/4 inch wide and 1/16 inch thick.

Otherwise locating a contactor/relay of a suitable current rating with a control voltage/coil rating of 24 volts.

Welder will weld for about 30 minutes and then will not weld until the unit cools down. generator function is normal. the repair shop told me that the welding leads were bad so I replaced them and have the...


If you check the wire A4 which connects the bridge to the current selector switch, make sure the connections are clean and tight. The sense wire parallels it and dirty connections on A4 can make more current flow through the sense wire than normal.

It is also possible the current sensor may be faulty, or has a bad connection, or is even seeing transient spikes from brush noise. The sensor connects to terminals 3 and 4 of J2 the 4 terminal connector on PCB1. And looks like a plastic and metal donut The sense loop for welding is supposed to be a single loop through and the generator sense should be 3 loops through.

My welder has auxilary power, but will not weld


Blow air through cabinet to clean out the dust- low pressure. Check for continuity across the reactor. if you connect one test lead to the terminal "R4", should be a tape label on the connection. The other connection is "S1", you should see less than 10,000 ohms.

Check the weld polarity switch to make sure it is not damaged. If you have AC welding but no DC- check L1 the choke in series with the + connection on the bridge rectifiers.

Also check cable A4 that connects between the bridge rectifiers and the current selector switch. Make sureit is intact, and clean terminations.

WHEN I TRY STRIKE AN ARC WITH A ROD YOU HAVE TO HIT IT 5 OR 6 TIMES TO GET IT TO WELD ITS HARD TO KEEP IT GOING BUT AFTER 4 OR 5 SECONDS IT WILL BURN LIKE NORMAL (USING PROPER AMPERAGE)


Is this on new rods as well as one's you'be been already welding with? Depending on rod types, some will "flux over" the end, after welding insulating the tip. When you're welding at a low setting, with a small rod, sometimes it is hard to start an arc. A 7018 rod is a good example of this. Strike the rod like a woodden match, or drag it on the metal, to expose the rod. It also depends on your welder. Some have settings to help start an arc and then control the current. Older transformer welders arn't that smart and are less forgiving on low current thin metal settings.

My lincoln welder lost its heat penetration


It only produces 100amps. You can only weld thinner metal 3/16" comfortably. Any thicker will resuld in less/no penetration.
