Make sure you have a good enough ground on your work-piece. try putting a chunk or strip of metal on or closer to your work-piece to get better current.

SOURCE: My welding machine will not weld?

Hi, put the setting on 150 amps, and see if the welder welds. do you have a gas or electric welder?
some welders have a reset botton in front. tell me how many amps your welder produces.

If this doesn’t work for you please write back. Thanks,

If the idle is not working, then it is either you idle solenoid attached to the carberator or your idle board is bad. If you apply 12Vdc to the idle solenoid is should move, if not then the solenoid is shot, no good. If it works then you idle board is bad. Also, check to see if you are 60Hertz by measuring at the outlet with a frequency meter. I recommend a Fluke meter. You should have 120Vac and 60HZ at the outlet. If the frequency is low then your engine speed needs to be increased. The idle solenoid could be causing all these problems.

Mine was doing the same, spoke with the technitions and they told me to undo the connector from the hand piece to the machine at the machine, you then need to disassemble this connector and look to see if one of the white wires is dissconnected, if so you need to carefully push the gold plated pin out the back of the connector towards the cable, solder the wire back on and reassemble and it should work.
If not contact the head office and they were very helpfull.
Cheers Robert

SOURCE: Problems with welding with a Forney 180 amp. Arc Stick Welder

check your input power connections on the primary side of the welders transformer, then if its an infinite control welder check that control,otherwise if it's a plug- in selectable amperage check these connections,it sounds like the infinite control is getting dirty and not passing all the current it shows on the control, also double your O.C.V. on the secondary and see if its with-in welder specs

I have just bought a Gasless Mig Welder and someone has said its only used for tacking. Is this right?


wrong
gasless mig welders are used the same as gas /wire migs
the only difference is the polarity of the leads to the hand piece and the work ground and this is indicated by the plug in the machine for the ground lead
what the "someone " would have been referring to is the duty cycle of the unit
every welder has a duty cycle because of the heat generated in the welding process by the electronic components and transformers and if that duty cycle is exceeded the machine stops working until it cools down or damages the circuits
it is stated as a % of time in use so a unit with a 20% duty cycle means that for every 20% of use it has to cool for 80% of time
as an example ---if you were using a stick welder, the time taken to burn the stick would be 20% and the time taken to insert a new stick and clean the slag off the weld to resume the process would be the 80%
It also depends on the amps being used for the weld
on a machine with 120amps capacity and you were using 15 amps to weld sheet metal--body panels - the length of welding time will be considerable compared to using 115 amps where the weld time would be a few minutes
there are plenty of helpful hints in the operators manual and other technical publications on line

Tip

What are 4 common welding processes?


There are four common welding processes utilized through out the work industry today. They are :
(Stick Welding or SMAW) Shield Metal Arc Welding
(Mig Welding or GMAW) Gas Metal Arc Welding
(Tig Welding or TMAW) Tungsten Metal Arc Welding
(FCAW) Flux Cored Arc Welding

There are many many welding processes, however these are the most common. The type I am going to discuss briefly today is SMAW. The most economical and cheapest way to learn if welding is for you or not is to start with stick welding. It has the least amount of variables that can go wrong for a beginner. It is not fast paced like mig or flux core, so you have time to watch the molten puddle to see what it is doing and make necessary adjustments to correct the size, shape, and contour of your weld bead. The hardest part for a beginner is to keep the electrode from sticking to the work piece. Thus is the reason it got the name of "stick welding". There are three common ways to strike an arc in SMAW. Tap Start, Scratch Start, and the last is to place the electrode upon your fingers like a pool cue, and shoot the rod like your playing pool.

What settings do i use to arc weld.


Not sure what machine you have, but it should be DC straight (electrode negative or DCEN) and DC reverse (electrode positive or DCEP). The polarities have different characteristics. For example, if you're planning to TIG weld, you would either use DCEN or AC (if welding aluminum). For the general stick welding process, DCEP tends to give you a deeper weld. The welding rod you buy will have recommended machine polarity and amperage range settings, you should use the recommended polarity for whichever rod you're using because different rods are designed to weld under different circumstances. But, generally speaking, most welding rods for steel will work on DCEP without much trouble.

My lincoln ranger 8 has excessive weld spatter compared and the auto idle dosent kick in very fast when I strike off to weld delayed or sticks my rod. My other ranger 8 no issue same heats. Also


weld current and idle control on this machine is controlled by the main circuit board, you mention that you a second ranger 8 that does not exhibit the same problem, you are fortunate in this, remove the board from the functioning machine, install it into the troubled machine, this should correct your problem, you can contact a weld supply store to purchase a replacement pc board

GW450001AC Where can I find a manual? Where can I find the locking connectors on the welding machinge for the welding cables? Are they called small Dintz? Will this machine run 1/8 welding rod?


Try to find the manual from your local tool trader, or go to the manufactures website and give them the serial # and and you can print a manual. I've done it with heavy equipment. To buy the quick connects, just look up welding supply in the yellow pages. Always buy your welding tools and supplies from a lisceansed welding supply. And yes you can weld with 1/8th rod, but you have to turn it up to 140 to do so, and use a 7018 rod

Broken welds on SS parrot cage. Need to repair ss rods that were pulled out and broke the welds ?


Easiest way to do it it's by using silver solder with oxyacetylene torch or propylne tank. But if you have access to STICK, MIG or TIG machine use 308L type SS welding stick, wire or links.

My AC225c welder will start a 7018(new) rod at the proper setting but then quit. Acts like setting is too low but no matter how I run up the setting nothing changes. All 6011,6014 rods weld perfect. Do I...


JAMES B,

FIRST OF ALL THE 7018 WELDING ROD IS REALLY A DC REVERSE POLARITY ROD. IN THE PAST 7-10 YEARS AGO 7018 AC/DC RODS HIT THE MARKET. THEY WELD LIKE ****! YOU DID'NT SAY WHAT DIAMETER YOUR USING,BUT THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN USE THESE RODS IS TO HAVE A BIGGER MACHINE. THE AC225 JUST DOES'NT HAVE ENOUGH POWER TO WELD IN THE AC MODE. WELDING WITH THIS ROD IN DC REV. IS ABOUT 150 AMPS FOR 1/8 DIA.AND ABOUT 110-120 AMPS FOR3/32 DIA. THIS ALSO DEPENDS ON THE BRAND OF MACHINE YOU HAVE. THE 6011-6014 RODS ARE MADE AC -DC,AND YES THEY RUN VERY NICE ON AC. HOPE THIS HELPS EWE OUT,I WAS A WELDER/FAB FOR 35 YEARS AND LOVED EVERY MINUTE! GOD BLESS AND GOD BYE.

Have a 120 volt 70 amp stick welder what gauge or stick type do i use


1/16th stick to 3/32nd.
3/32nd being the maximum. Don't use 3/32 for an extended period of time, or you can burn up that welder. (Even if it has a fan. If it doesn't have a fan built-in, I invite you to put a house box fan, close to the ventilation slots for the welder)

I would also recommend using 6011 rod. It's a mild steel rod, and is excellent to begin with. Usually used for filling, and medium strength situations. It does splatter, be aware of that.

Not trying to give you a tutorial on beginning welding, but would like to offer some tips:

1.Make sure the ground clamp has a good, clean surface it's clamped to. If not, it will be very hard to get the rod started, and also to keep it going. (Makes bad welds too)

2.Start with a B U T T weld. (Had to type it that way do to censorship of certain words)
That's laying two pieces of metal next to each other, and laying a bead in-between them. Easiest thing to start with. Go to corner welds next, (Two pieces together at a 90 degree angle), then try Uphill welds.

3.Shield flipped up on helmet, welder on. Lay the rod past the area you are going to start on. Past the metal edge. Lay the ->flux coating of the rod on the edge of the metal piece. The tip of the rod is past the metal edge by at least two inches.

This way you are lined up to begin the weld. Then flip your shield down, draw the rod back, until the tip of the rod touches the metal. Once the arc starts, lift the rod up a little to get the correct height, and keep that arc going.

4.Watch the PUDDLE, not the arc! You are watching the melted metal in front of the arc. You need to see how that puddle is doing, in order to compensate by bringing the rod closer, or further away.

5.Use a Zig-Zag pattern to begin with. Keep the Zig-Zag close to each other, until you are comfortable enough to make a longer pattern. Watch the penetration. Good penetration is the key, not a pretty weld.

6.Use the proper safety equipment. If the welding helmet lens has a tiny little scratch, you will burn your eyes. NO fun, believe me!
You won't know it until you wake up the next day with your eyes swelled shut!

Cover your arms, and use welding gloves. Welders give can give you a radiation burn, worse than a bad sunburn. NEVER just start welding a little with No welding helmet. Welding goggles are for the birds, or Acetylene welding!

Be safe, have fun welding!

Inverter stick welder welding rod sputters and sticks


It sounds like the rod that you're using is too big. If it is a 110 volt machine, and you're using a 1/8 rod...Then the rod is too big. Try a 3/32 rod.
