SOURCE: will feed wire but will not start an ark to weld

Make sure that the ground clamp is securely fastened to the workpiece.
Ensure that the power pin is fully seated into the housing where it receives the current.
Ensure that voltage and amperage settings are correct.

My Lincoln welder AC 225 -s sounds like it's running DC ? The only way to get a good weld is with running at a higher amperage


Need more information. Are you using reverse polarity? What kind of rod are you using? What size? What amps? Switch ground and stinger see what happens.

Miller welder 330a/bp it will not weld in D/C straight or reverse no ark but will work in A/C its like there is very low volts I was welding and then could not strike a ark


It's likely that your pedal is the problem. Pull the cover and check it electrically - these have been problematic in the past. You can further troubleshoot by selecting constant output and test the output.

Welder wont strike and keep an ark


Check the output voltage of the welder (the torch and earth clamp). The voltage should be around 30 to 40 volts. If yu see the normal spark from the rod as you strike, but cannot hold an arc, have a look at your rods, they could be old, damp or incorrect for your welder or the type of work you are attempting.

WHEN I TRY STRIKE AN ARC WITH A ROD YOU HAVE TO HIT IT 5 OR 6 TIMES TO GET IT TO WELD ITS HARD TO KEEP IT GOING BUT AFTER 4 OR 5 SECONDS IT WILL BURN LIKE NORMAL (USING PROPER AMPERAGE)


Is this on new rods as well as one's you'be been already welding with? Depending on rod types, some will "flux over" the end, after welding insulating the tip. When you're welding at a low setting, with a small rod, sometimes it is hard to start an arc. A 7018 rod is a good example of this. Strike the rod like a woodden match, or drag it on the metal, to expose the rod. It also depends on your welder. Some have settings to help start an arc and then control the current. Older transformer welders arn't that smart and are less forgiving on low current thin metal settings.

My Lincoln SA 200 welder will not rev up when I strike an arc.


Need code number to be exact, but sounds like the wiring to the current transformer is incorrect.
