SOURCE: lincoln ranger 250 voltage problem

Hi,
Check the current control resistor with an ohm meter. The center terminal should have a smooth rise or fall of resistance when measured to one end or the other of the resistor. If the resistor and the wiring to it are OK, check the shunt in the output it'll be by the "electrode" terminal. If both are OK you probably have a bad control board.

Regards,
Carl

Try replacing the circuit breaker. They can/do get weak and tend to trip before they actually reach the rated limit.

SOURCE: 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.

How do I hook up the power chord to my ac lincoln stick welder


If you're talking about an AC 225 "Cracker box", the cord attached directly to the power switch and grounds directly to the chassis of the machine. Take care when removing the cover screws as not all need to be removed. There are one 5/16" screw in the recessed area at the back of the machine, two directly under the recessed area, and 2-3 3/8" bolts at the bottom rear. When those are removed, the machine will tilt front/backwards... That's normal. It's been a while since I opened one of these up. Hope I remembered the screw positions correctly.
When you remove the rear cover, you'll see the switch and how the old cord is attached. Good luck.

Lincoln precision tig 225. Makes bad aluminum welds in AC. Welds show signs of contamination. Have tried new argon bottle. No leaks in gas lines. Using pure and 2% thoriated tungsten, 3/32, pure...


Hello; Make sure AC Auto Balancing is Enabled; And when Welding Aluminum Aways use 100% Pure Green Coded Tugsten.Make Sure you dont have 75/25 or possibly if you know for sure your frequency balancing on your machine is working you could possibly have a bad bottle of gas try the bottle of gas on the machine that you say that runs good if it runs good put it back on the 225 if the problems still exist there is something wrong with your machine`s Ac high freqency Auto Balancing.Make sure all connections are good,check tig head for loose connections. Step Up to A 1/8 size tugsten it will carry more heat and gets less contanimated.Every time you stick your tugsten it will run contanimated untill you burn it off or clean it ,if you stick you tugsten go ahead and put a clean piece back in the tig head, Contanimated tugsten wil run dirty for 5 to 20 minutes Untill you BURN it Back Clean !?

I just bought a AC225 stick welder, there are two cables coming out of the machine, I don't know which one is the work cable and which one is the holder cable?


it doesn't matter which one you use because it's alternating current, normally the longer one is your electrode holder cable so you have more cable to move around with,but either way it will work, if it's a D.C. welder then all your doing is using reverse polarity and in some cases welding this type of welding is superior to straight polarity

Welder doesnt turn on...


Have you connected the feed from your breaker box to ADJACENT lugs on a dual pole breaker? By code you must use a ganged breaker.

You should use a voltmeter to verify the plug is getting power on teh desired pins.

Welding machine stops working after a few minutes of welding.


there is probley nothing wrong its called duty cycle.which means that if you are welding long periods or welding at max amps the welder will kickout to cool down.Look on your unit for the tag that tells imformation about your unit.It will show something like 30% duty cycle so that means you can weld 3 minutes at full power before the unit shuts down.
