If you are using flux core that might be why, flux core burns hotter, try using 75/25 or more argon than co2, as your gas, the gas will keep it a little cooler, keep your amps down and match the wire speed to the amps, which would be slower wire speed

Lincoln weld pak 100, no heat penatration on the D setting


I believe your voltage control rheostat (potentiometer) must be worn out. Check your owner's manual for the part number and request it, it's not expensive and it is an easy part to replace. If you are doing that would be a good idea to do the same for your speed control rheostat.
Or clean them if you can, take off all the carbon particles that it build up with the time.

Fire power 160 heat range will not go low enough to weld thin material.


You need a smaller welder. Pick up a nice 110 unit that has at least 4 power settings. I have a lincoln 95 amp that will weld body panels on low and 1/2" on high.

I have a lincoln power mig 255 and every time i weld little holes appear in the welds. what could this be?


Hi:

This could be a problem of gthe gas you are using. Make sure to use mix 75/25 argon/CO2 for mild steel welding, argon 100% for aluminum and trimix helium/argon/CO2 for stainless steel.
Also check your heat (voltage) 16-22 is enough for weld of most steels less than 1/2 inch.

I have a lincoln weld pack 100 hd, and i want to weld aluminum but i dont know how to start. i buy a 4043 fil d aluminium mig and i dont know if my welder it ill be fine to weld,


you can weld aluminum with the lincoln but you will need to change the liner in the wand to a nylon one and swich the gas to 100% argon and of course change the wire to an aluminum roll. and practice-practice-practice it is much more difficult to weld aluminum then steel and requires much more control.

I have a Lincoln 140 mig welder. It welds and cuts


Usually this is caused by a bad liner in the mig gun hose, or worn out guide rolls in the drive unit, or if this is not the case the speed of the wire might be set to high as this would force the wire into the weld causing the motor to heat up from resistance and shut it down on safty. Hope This Helps Don

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.

Welder probems


a mig welding unit of 100 amps is very low, you will require a small wire size, plus the contact tip, liner to suit, expect to get a maximum amperage of 70- 80 amps max, if the unit is Aluminium wound transformer then expect 6 months use, and the ampage will drop ,then its scrap, depending on the weather conditions that the unit is kept, will depend on the live of the unit.
