Why does the welder quit arching after 30 minutes?


Motors and generators are the same in this sense. The winding of a field coil is defective. The winding heats up with use and the winding expands causing it to short out and quits doing it's intended purpose. An hour of cooling allows the winding to contract thus clearing the short circuit. A good motor rewinder person can find the defective winding with an oven or heat gun and can rewind it for a fraction of a new welder generator.

Electrical wiring


The CP-300 and CP-200 were never designed to run on single phase. You can buy a 3-phase generator (see military surplus) or a phase converter. You will need a pretty big one - like one rated for 20hp to use the full potential of the welder. That is also pretty expensive - say $1000. However, if you have a shop, you can buy used 3-phase equipment sometimes significantly cheaper than 2-phase stuff. So you buy that expensive converter and save money on all the other equipment you will buy. Or sell it. Or scrap it - some older welders had big copper wound transformers - a few hundred bucks worth of copper.... some had aluminum though... Good luck.

Battery wont charge


First check that in reality your battery's still in good condition, any electrical shop will do it (try autozone or napa they will do it for free) if the battery's still in good condiction then you need to replace the voltage regulator. You can do it yourself, or send it to an authorized miller mechanic.
If you want to do it yourself have you owners manual and follow instructions.

My lincoln welder/generator with onan engine will only run for a short time when it shuts down. It doesn't matter if in use or not, either welding or generating. It is getting fuel and the coil has been...


The engine has low oil level shutdown. It may be the reason for stopping.

Use the welder only at level condition. Check the oil level, before every start.
If no result, find and check the oil sensor contact (if possible replace with good to check). Try with disconnected and shortened contact prior to buying a new one.

Other possible reasons you already checked

Welder not charging battery


Most engine driven welders have the charge armature located underneath the flywheel of the engine, but you need to check a couple of other things before you start tearing down the engine. Look for a small rectangular module on the blower housing of the engine, on a Kohler this is at the side, on an Onan it's at the top. This is the rectifier/charger module and it will have 3 wires, the 2 on the outside will be the AC from the armature, and the middle one is the battery charge positive. With the engine not running, use a DC voltmeter to measure the voltage between this middle tab and the engine block, you should see a voltage that's very nearly equal to the battery voltage. If you don't see a voltage there you may have either a blown fuse, a tripped circuit breaker, or a broken wire leading to the battery. On some welders the fuse or circut breaker is inside the welder cabinet on the bulkhead between the engine and the generator parts of the welder.
If you did see battery voltage at the charge terminal, start the engine, switch the voltmeter to measure AC voltage and measaure the voltage from one of the outside terminals to the other, you should see 15 volts or more (be careful not to short out anything). If you get a nice AC voltage, switch back to DC and measure the charge output again (engine block to middle tab), it should be greater than the battery voltage we measured before and it should be slowly getting greater, if not the rectifier/charger module is bad.
If you didn't see enough AC going into the module, stop the engine, disconnect the plug from the module and use an ohm meter to measure the resistance between the 2 outside wires that go back to the engine, something between 100 and 1500 ohms is good. If you measure an open circiut (OL on my meter) or if you measure 0 ohms, the armature is probably bad. You have to take the flywheel off the engine to see the armature. If you got a good restance reading but the voltage is still low you may have one or more broken magnets inside the flywheel, again you have to do some serious disassembly to see if that's the case.
