SOURCE: power mig astro power 110 burns wire off at tip

I have the same welder. Worked well for 15 years until the drive bearing stopped spinning. I cleaned and oiled the bearing and it has been working like a coon on the farm since. Nice 120 volt welder....

SOURCE: The wire feed on my welder will not work.

Maybe you can get lucky like I did . Some times the acr volt selector switch gets corrosion in it and wont let the circuit board know to send power to the wire feed motor. You can cycle this arc volt. switch in my case it is the a,b,c,d,e, switch back and fourth a few times and this will brake the corrosion and your wire might feed again as mine did . This corrosion build up happens from not using and or sollecting the switch much usually on a welder at hm that gets very little use. it is common good luck .

Have 130xp welds the same with or with out the gas welds are not smooth


check wire feed speed , volts setting and current setting
if you are using solid wire with a gas bottle then the leads will be + to the hand piece and negative to the work
if you are using gas less wire ( no gas required) then the hand piece has to switched to the - terminal and the earth to the + terminal basically smooth welds is a combination of wire feed ,volts and amps suitable for the material thickness being welded

WHAT IS RESISTANCE WELDING?


Electric resistance welding (ERW) refers to a group of welding processes such as spot and seam welding that produce coalescence of faying surfaces where heat to form the weld is generated by the electical reistance of material vs the time and the force used to hold the materials together during welding. Some factors influencing heat or welding temperatures are the proportions of the workpieces, the coating or the lack of coating, the electrode materials, electrode geometry, electrode pressing force, weld current and weld time. Small pools of molten metal are formed at the point of most electrical resistance (the connecting surfaces) as a high current (100-100,000 A) is passed through the metal. In general, resistance welding methods are efficient and cause little pollution, but their applications are limited to relatively thin materials and the equipment cost can be high. although in production situations the cost per weld may be as low as $.04 usd per weld depending on application and manufacturing rate.

My new Miller Bobcat has low amperage on 120 volt outlet.


Increase your idle setting on the 1/8" threaded rod protruding to the left of the carburetor until V= 125. Then run your drill. Actuating the drill should call the throttle solenoid to open up to produce more power.

How do you ignite a Lincoln Electric Welder???


You don't need an striker with a MIG welder just hook the ground cable to the base metal point the nozzle where you want to weld and pull the trigger and it will weld. Household current will run a MIG welder Take a look at the plug on the welder if it will pug into a 110v outlet you are all set, but most likely you will need a 220v outlet and maybe as much as an electric dryer type outlet. 

It takes a lot of practice to be a decent welder you also need to know what voltage and wire speed settings to use for a given thickness and type of material. 

You don't mention shielding gas, if you are using a flux core wire you don't need it, but if you are using regular wire you do. 

If I may make a suggestion, If you really want to learn how to weld, find a community college near you and take an introductory welding class. You will get a wealth of information and practice on different welding processes. The instructor will work with you and get you welding much better and faster than you will on your own. Most importantly you will get a lot of safety information.

This is a good introductory book:

I have a problem with **** inclusion in my welds. I am using 3/32 6013 electrodes on a small AC unit. I am welding 1/8 inch mild steel plates in a 2F configuration. When I start the weld I produce is...


A number of things can cause "****" inclusions, poor Technique, bad fit up, Amperage too low, Electrodes damp---etc. Firstly you are using AC-- Check the Electrode carton for the correct ampage, then check the set up, this is the electrode use AC or DC, most 6013 work better on AC terminal setting dont matter + or -- earth.
If you weave too wide you will loose the fluidity on the weld metal, meaning you will be welding over the ****.
before welding the bead, start and iniciate the weld pause a second until the arc is established then move off.

My Arc Welding machine has 3 outlets for 50A, 100A and 150A. I have set it to 50A. I tested with a tester. At the 50A outlet I am getting current. But there is no arc. The ground is connected properly


1.whether it is tranformer type or Rectifiert please find. 2.If Transformer check the oil level. 2.if rectifier Please check the outlet with the meger instrument to find amps generated while you trying to weld 3.Please check earthing cable is fixed directly to the metal where you are going to weld

Miller Big 40 will not weld and has no current at the A/C outlet


open inspection door,which also the fine tuner knob is ,there's a 2x4 size circut board that snaps out with little force to remove,this is the voltage regulator board,look for 4700 ohm resisitor burnt into,tv tech can fix or order new board at $227.00 what i paid.

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,

No power to weld or use A/c power outlets


You don't say what model welder you have, some Miller welders have 3 slip rings and brushes some have just 2. In either case the next step is to use an ohm meter to check the resistance of the rotor and brush assembly. If this is a 2 slip ring model, take one of the wires off of one of the brushes then measure the resistance between the 2 brush terminals - it should be something between 10 and 100 ohms. If you get an open circuit measure the resistance from one slip ring to the other right at the slip rings - if you now get something other than an open you've got bad brushes (about $10 each to replace),

The 3 slip ring models are similar but have 2 rotor windings - take off the wire from the middle brush and measure from it to each of the ends.

If your rotor and brushes checked out OK you should next check the fuse in the exciter circuit, this will be on the block where the other end of the brush wires go.

If the fuse was good you need to do an excitation test. This is a bit dangerous so be careful. Look at the schematic pasted inside the case and figure out which brush is the positive (+) one. The wires are numbered and so is the schematic so this isn't as hard as it might seem.
Disconnect the wires from both brushes (all 4 wires in the 3 slip ring model) and tape them off so you won't get shocked. Get a 9V battery or make up jumpers that will let you connect the welder battery to the brushes. Start the welder and connect your temporary power supply, measure the AC at the outlets (it should be around 60VAC with a 9V battery) and the DC voltage at the weld terminals (should be above 10V), lastly measure the voltage at the wires you disconnected from the brushes (should be around 70V DC). Disconnect the temporary power supply and shut down the welder.
If you didn't get AC at the outlets and DC at the weld terminals above, something is wrong with the stator in your welder. If you didn't measure any DC on the wires that go to the brushes (most likely thing to happen), you've got something wrong in the exciter circuit. Check the rectifier, the capacitor, the exciter winding in the stator, and lastly the current control board. Older welders will also have the fine current control rheostat in this circuit (look for burned windings on it).

That's about all of the general advice I can give you without knowing more about which welder you have.
