Check earth wire has not become dislodged,
Pop the cover and check for burnt terminals, often overheating of the transformer can cook a terminal, easily cleaned up and replaced.

Check the dial indicator. Sometimes if someone changes the amps while welding, there will be a break in the coil. It will work at a different setting as long as you are away from the break.

The settings for welding aluminium using a Tig200P AC/DC inverter


If you are using a remote then you would set the machine in standard for controlling output and also to AC output, HF tig, contactor and control in remote position. I don't know if this helps or not but I pulled it from an owners manual.


1/16" (.062) - pre-flow .1 sec., hot start 20, amperage 70, Hz 100, balance 20%, post-flow 6.0 sec.

For pulse settings - set pulse width 60%, peak current 100, background current 30, Hz 1.0

1/8" (.125) - pre-flow .1 sec., hot start 20, amperage 150, Hz 80, balance 20%, post-flow 6.0 sec.

For pulse settings - set pulse width 60%, peak current 150, background current 50, Hz 1.0

3/16"-1/4" - pre-flow .1 sec., hot start 20, amperage 185, Hz 60, balance 20%, post-flow 8.0 sec.
For pulse settings - set pulse width 60%, peak current 185, Background current 125, Hz 1.0

I have an ancient 125 amp AC arc welding machine on which the current is varied by moving the negative lead from to different terminals. However the terminals are in pairs and joined by slotted metal...


Hi:

Since you did not mention here brand or model of welder; I'm pretty sure that your machine it's an AC/DC machine, the series of slotted plates means that the machine will output 50 amps in AC or 80 on DC. 60 in AC or 125 in DC.
If you want to work with lowest amps available, just put the selector on AC and connect your cables to the 50/80 amp side.
You should have a selector lever to switch back and forth from AC to DC in front of the unit.

Hope this work for you.

Your generator is a welder?? Yikes, the 220 volts coming out of the genny is not the same as the 220 volts running a welder, it is, but it isn't, the 220 volts used to run the welder are transformed into DC, in the 50 -150 amp range, the 220 volts coming out of your genny is 220 volts, AC, at 30-40-50 amps. Now exactly how were you welding with 220 volts AC? Remove anything plugged into the genny, check the oil, check the gas, make sure it is fresh, check the breakers, check the fuses, get it running, now don't try to weld with it again. Unless you have a big welder to plug into it and I wouldn't even do that because of the generator spikes. I might be wrong, but I have never seen a genny with a welder on it for home use.

How too set up a tig welder for welding thin steel?


DC current, electrode negative (DC Straight, DC-), High frequency for start only (really don't have to use high freq at all for steel but it helps establish the arc without scratching), 1 amp per thousandth of material thickness is a good setting to start, adjust from there for the job. 1 amp/thousandth also applies to aluminum- it has a lower melting point than steel but conducts heat much better so power to weld is very nearly the same.

Use a sharp tungsten, don't ball it at all (as you would for AC work).

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.
