Question about Hobart Welders 500433 Champion? 10,000 All-in-One 10,000-Watt Generator

1 Answer

My kohler driven hobart champ 10000 runs but only provides power

For two seconds then loses it on weld leads and the same on the ac outlets. Its been raining on it uncovered for two days...could it be a temporary short fixed by drying it out or what could it be? Its a new machine (under one year) and only has 38 hours on it. I got it new.If i turn it off then back on it again gives power for the same about two seconds ( about the time it takes to reach full rpms.) Please help.I used it in the morning and it was fine,but when it started raining again, suddenly this problem occured.I loosened the front panel and blew off the circuit board with my air chuck,but it didn't help. I checked the voltage at the main brushes with it running, and it had power for the same couple of seconds,then dropped to 0 right there at the brushes.

Replace your berrings in the drive its probly as the rpms rise the centrifical force pushes the brushes against the wall causing it to short

My welder revs up but wont put out full power


We need a better description of what is happening. I see many engine driven welders that when loaded up heavily the engine rpm drops because of needing a tune up or complete engine overhaul. Since the engine can't run at designed r.p.m. the welder won't put out "full power" With a better description of problem, Such as engine is not slowing down but will only weld at 100 amps experts here could help you better.

Ensure your engine is in good running condition
The auto idle switch should function correctly
Remove the front cover of the welding generator, held by 2 1/4-20 screws
Behind that cover you will see a brush lock assembly, will have 2 wires connected at the top, one is insulated, one is not, mark the leads before you remove them to maintain correct polarity on the slip rings, the brush block is held in place by two Phillips screws, remove the screws, unplug the brush block,'remove it, check to see if the brushes move easily in the brush block, this is a common problem with these machines, the brushes tend to bind in the block, will not make proper contact against the slip rings.....
Remove the brushes from the holder, using a square of "scotch Brite" wipe the brushes, you may see a line around the brush, remove that by gentle cleaning, install the brush block, connect the leads, install the cover, go to work

Not generating power


The engine is not running the welding transformer. It may be a fuse, drive belt or gear wheel. Or the transformer is shorting out. Check these points in this order if the last one maybe you will have to replace the transformer. The transformer is 2 coils to stop them shorting out where normal electric wire is cover in plastic or rubber the coils are coated with enamel as are sum cooking pans. If this is damaged in any way it will short.
