Instruction manual for use


If you have the user's manual there is some rudimentary information there. If you have a local welding supply company, their catalog may contain general information.

The short of it is you will need to develop a feel for your machine. When you start with scrap of the same size as what you will be welding on, select your heat setting for the matel thickness, and strike an arc- nothing fancy all you are going to do is adjust your wire feed rate until the weld sounds like fring bacon only as quiet as you can make it.

once you have that setting run a bead on a corner weld or a **** weld and look at the back side- if it the weld achieved full ***********, and looks like the top side- you have it set right. Ideally the weld pool will only be twice in width as the thickness of the metal to be welded in most situations. Neithert undercut nor excessively proud of the surface.

if you have the model number and make, find the homepage of the manufacturer (except Century) and download their user manual for that make and model of yours.

What is the basic technique in welding


Hi:
Well don't know were to start, basic technique goes according with the type of metal to weld and type of wire to use.
I think if will be better if you read the basics of welding with MIG machines with an owner's manual. Check the link and go to section B-7.

I have a Lincoln Pro Core 100 wire feed welding machine; it is (5) years old. I use the machine often. A year ago I built a 5' X 20" barbeque pit out of pipe and attached a 2' X 2' X 4' smoker to it...


Hi:

There is nothing wrong with your machine. The Pro-core100 is a 20% duty cycle machine; meaning: that will work for 2 straight minutes of welding and then needs 8 minutes to cool down.

Just allow the machine to cool down, turn it off and start again after the 8 minute cooling process.

If this was useful to you please vote. Thanks.

Welding aluminum and wire keepscoming out of rollers


your hobart machine it's not suit up for standard aluminum welding, the lenght of the gun it's too long therefore the wire will nest at the drive rolls. You need to buy a spool gun. Or change gun liner for a teflon one (instead of metal one), then change the drive roll for knurled ones and finally oversize your tip if you can. No need to do ALL this if you buy a spool gun.

Welder Motor runs , Gen works , welder won't excite and weld


A MIG welder is a complicated machine, unlike the stick welder. You can lose a lot of time if you must wait for someone else to fix the MIG. If you know basic troubleshooting for your welding machines, you can save a lot of time and a lot of money.
See if the wire is feeding properly. A worn drive roller can affect the feed and cause it to slip. When you're checking, look for debris and dirt on the liner. This can also cause bird nesting. Sometimes troubleshooting welding machines is as simple as cleaning it and allowing the wire to move freely.
  • Step 2 Look at the tip near the wire exit, inside of the gun. A worn out tip doesn't allow the electricity to efficiently hit and creates a lot more work on the job. Burn back can cause a bad wire.
  • Step 3 Clean the welding cup of the splatter. This task seems mundane, but troubleshooting welding machines usually involves clean components. Proper gas coverage cannot occur if the cup is plugged.
  • Step 4 Inspect the ground clamp. When this part is coated with oxides, electrons can't readily transfer. A bad ground **** can cause a lot of resistance and change the way that the current comes back to the machine.
  • Step 5 Examine the welding cable for worn spots. A badly worn can cause problems.
  • Step 6 Adjust the brake on the wire spool. Setting it too high or too low can cause problems with your machine operation.
  • Sometimes you can overlook the simplest things when you're troubleshooting welding machines, so always go from the simple to the more complex.
  • Always have a qualified electrician look at the parts on the inside of the machine.
  • Don't continually subject your MIG welder to thermal overload, which could cause permanent damage.

    Sounds like it is grounding out to it self and when it does that is the only time that the cable roller will move this is a century 110 volt wire feed model that worked just great and then all of a sudden...


    unplug the gun then turn of. this will eliminate the gun being bad. If it still continues check for obvious shorts to ground. If nothing obvious its probably a failing/failed control board.
