Why is welder not working?

a better question would be
why does my --make and model -- not work when I press the feed trigger on the hand piece
the most obvious answer to what you asked is that the earth wire is not connected to what you are trying to weld or the machine is not connected to a good wall socket

The F 1 circuit breaker, manual reset is tripping not allowing it to weld. Could it be something as simple as the reset itself

Rated Output at 20% Duty Cycle 150 A at 16 VAC
150 A at 16 VDC Welding Amperage Ranges AC/DC 10 - 165A Max. Open-Circuit Voltage 80 V Amps Input at Rated Output AC-230V: 21A
DC-230V: 23A You need to configure the machine to specifications of the material you going to weld.That is :
-The material of the job
-And the proper amperage to use for the material.
-For aluminum you will use A/C
-Stainless Steele / Chrome Molly D/C

Aluminum MIG Welding
1. The best feeding of wire for aluminum is done with a spool gun. If you can't use a spool gun, use the shortest gun possible and keep the gun as straight as possible. Use Argon only for shielding gas. Only use a push gun technique when welding aluminum. 2. If you are having feeding problems, one thing you can try is a contact tip that is one size bigger than your wire. 3. The most common wire type is ER4043 for all-purpose work. ER5356 is a stiffer wire (easier to feed), and is used when more rigid, higher-strength weld properties are needed. 4. Clean the aluminum before welding, to remove the oxide layer. Use a stainless steel wire brush used only for cleaning aluminum. 5. Fill the crater at the end of the weld to avoid a crack. One way to do this is to dwell in the weld pool for a second at the end of the weld.

Relay clicks, but wire feed motor wont operate

check for power to drive motor,if power is there when you pull gun trigger then motor is bad.if no power look for bad wire connections then relay.

Dear sir turbo weld 100en.need tip size,could worn tip cause constant wire breakage?it breaks on entry t o hose,just after tensioner.with thanks mally.

tip size depends on the size of wire you are using,worn tip doesnt help wire break unless its kinking up after feed rollers.check the tennsion of feed rollers,check wire on roll for nicks(have seen bad rolls of wire from factory).

I have a pro-mig 135 and while welding the arc surges up and down along with the wire feed.the feed is real jumpy and will not keep a constant smooth puddle

You need to clean and perhaps replace the liner in your wire feed gun. The liner gets tiny bits of dirt and **** up inside. After even normal use for a while, the liner itself gets worn away and makes the wire stick rather than smoothly poke into the puddle.

Liner maintenance time is also a good time to check the feed wheels for wear, look for the little ruts in the wheel to be dull or obviously worn at the edges. Wipe off the drive shafts and housing as long as you've got the drive wheels off anyway. :-)
All of this should have a nicely illustrated procedure in your user manual.

The other thing that can cause problems is that the welding wire can sometimes get rusty enough to be sticky inside the liner. Roll off a good length of wire (2 or 3 wraps around the spool) and inspect it for any sort of funkyness. If in doubt, blow out the liner, change the wire, and weld something to see if it works better.

I need to find a manual for a Craftsman welding stabilizer

I think most of the older Craftsman welders were made by Century which is now owned by Lincoln Electric Company. If this is a wire feed welder you adjust the wire feed speed so that the arc sounds like eggs frying, the voltage setting (if any) will depend on the thickness of the material you're trying to weld. If it's a stick welder there will just be a current range control that you set depending on the thickness and type of material you're welding.
