The wiring that you are hooked up to probably isnt strong enough, welders pull a lot of juice, you might need to re-wire your hook-up

1998 Saturn sl1 keeps blowing 30amp cooling fan fuses. it runs for maybe 20 seconds then fuse blows


The cooling fan motor is likely drawing to much current because it is worn out.

Lincoln sp-150 idealarc will not arc any more ground output checked ok fuses checked ok incoming power 230v ok output term for + voltage to wire on spool nopower when trigger pressed.continuity from


There is a temperature activated switch near the transformer that will turn off control voltage until the transformer cools. There is also a fuse for the control voltage. That would explain why the motor won't run. There's a possibility that the trigger switch in the handle is bad too.

MY CLARKE WELD 235 TEN TURBO ARC WELDER HAS SUDENLY STARTED BLOWING FUSES WHEN IT ARCS UP ANY IDEA


More then likely you have a shorted component (positive or hot wire to ground). Verify that the gun/trigger assembly is in good shape and has no broken wires that are touching the ground or case (may have to disassemble). Thats the easiest thing to check, everything else is inside the unit and will take more sophisticated knowledge and equipment to diagnose.

My CLARKE WELD 235 TEN TURBO WELDER BLOWS MY 13 AMP FUSE. iT ARCS UP THEN BLOWS FUSE


Hi well if it is blowing fuses and you are using it on a suitable circuit breaker, a FUSE really isn't suitable, unless a special Motor type slow blow fuse, etc esspecially with this much current draw, anyway if this is occurring the device must be short circuiting after it arc's, accordingly i would imagine that one or more of the output semiconductors, is shorting at this time, the only way to fix this will be to replace these semis? & possibly the drive circuit too? It's impossible to actually tell without actually examining the unit as i am sure you must understand?
However DIY in reality isn't really practical, unless you can obtain a service and repair manual, and then you maybe able to isolate and repair the unit, however in my experience the very best thing you can do is take it to a professional and get a "Quote" as top prospective costings and go from there? This way at least you will know what's wrong and how much it will cost, it may even be that replacement is better than repair in any event.

Coolin fans wont run without runnin a jumper directly to battery


Could be the cooling fan relay, the fuse, the sensor which triggers the cooling fan relay, or the wiring connections which join it all together. Is there power coming to the relay? Is there ground? Will the cooling fan operate if you trigger the relay? Try to break the circuit down in sections, and test a section at a time. If, for example, the fan operates when you trigger the relay, you will need to find out why the sensor is not triggering the relay. Maybe a bad wire? Or a bad sensor? Let us know what you find out. Good luck!

1998 chevy 3500hd, 6.5 turbo. has two new batteries and two new alternators but when hot there is an intermitant draw that dims the lights and puts a major drain on the electrical system when running. What...


Some educated guesses:-
Check the operation of the radiator cooling and air conditioner condensor fans.- There may be a seized fan motor causing the current draw.
With such a major current draw I would expect a fuse to blow or circuit breaker to operate - check all fuses installed in system are of correct rating,

Check for damaged (heat?) wiring adjacent to exhaust/turbo fittings.

Cooling fans do not turn off without pulling the fuses.


yes they should be connected to a thermo sensor
