SOURCE: My lincoln welder/generator Ranger 8 will not idle

Sounds like your CT or CT board is bad. CT stands for Current Transformer. A CT senses an increase in voltage draw or current, which will trigger the idle solenoid.

Lincoln ranger 250 welder missing on high idle

Make sure that it has a R in the spark plug number. Can't really say that this is the problem but I have run into many Rangers that had problems of one sort or another because someone had changed the plug and not replaced it with a resistive plug.

My machine will not drop idle when just running

There are only three problems that can cause the idle speed to stay in high:1) The idler switch is on high position. Switch it back to the middle.2) Machine is on auxiliary power. Switch it to panel position.3) You have a faulty PC board or idler solenoid. Need to see a repair man.Good LuckDavid

I have a sa200-f163 lincoln Problem with the Web Site I have a sa200-f163 lincoln welder that only sparks faintly when trying to weld. I have attempted flashing the exicter with no results.How does one...

You can expect to see readings near zero ohms. The windings in a SA200 are pretty darn heavy, to the point that all you can expect to see from an ordinary VOM is either continuity or short circuit.

Is it kicking up from idle when you try to establish an arc? That's the biggest problem with this machine, the darn idle mechanism fails and it's about impossible to find parts.

If it's kicking up like it should then clipping the ground to the Neg post on a 12v battery and tapping the end of your rod (that's inserted in the holder) on the other post should polarize the generator. Hooking it to another welder for a few seconds should do it too.

Have you serviced the brushes? If not, let me know through the 'comment' button and we'll service them.

Im looking into getting a mig and have come across the century (by lincoln) welders for 299. is this a quality welder and of same quality as a Lincoln brand.

No, it's not going to be equal to the Lincoln in all ways- but if Lincoln built it it'll be a decent machine.

In all honesty, if you can only have one welder it should be a stick welder. Mig welders are full of problems and, while ideally suited to 8 hour a day 7 days a week use, can be finicky as heck when used infrequently.

The stick welder allows you to work in all positions and all conditions, it's generally cheaper than Mig welding and it's usually faster.

My Lincoln SA 200 welder will not rev up when I strike an arc.

Need code number to be exact, but sounds like the wiring to the current transformer is incorrect.
