Without more info I say it is a short in the switch. If not the switch trace out the wires and look for a bare spot.

My lincoln ranger 8 has excessive weld spatter compared and the auto idle dosent kick in very fast when I strike off to weld delayed or sticks my rod. My other ranger 8 no issue same heats. Also


weld current and idle control on this machine is controlled by the main circuit board, you mention that you a second ranger 8 that does not exhibit the same problem, you are fortunate in this, remove the board from the functioning machine, install it into the troubled machine, this should correct your problem, you can contact a weld supply store to purchase a replacement pc board

I have a Lincoln Ranger 8 with an Onan Engine. When started the engine runs at an EXTREME RPM. What causes this?


Check movement of the governor arm without it running. You should be able to move it by hand. If it is stuck, it could be the idle solenoid, or possibly something else more major.

What is wrong with the idle on my welder? the switch works , it idles up when I switch it on high and it idles down when I switch it down but it wont go up when I strike an arc or use power tools, what...


There is something wrong with the auto load sensing switch which is part of the generator. That is the sensor that detects when current load from the generator drops as in when you strike an arc or turn on a power tool and cranks the throttle to full power. It is obviously working on manual because the manual switch is cranking the revs up so the solenoid that operates the throttle is ok. My advice is to take it to a service centre that deals in welder/generator sets as you are playing with dangerous voltages and may possibly damage the machine by tinkering with it or fry yourself (nasty)

Lincoln ranger 250 welder missing on high idle


Make sure that it has a R in the spark plug number. Can't really say that this is the problem but I have run into many Rangers that had problems of one sort or another because someone had changed the plug and not replaced it with a resistive plug.

My machine will not drop idle when just running


Hi:
There are only three problems that can cause the idle speed to stay in high:1) The idler switch is on high position. Switch it back to the middle.2) Machine is on auxiliary power. Switch it to panel position.3) You have a faulty PC board or idler solenoid. Need to see a repair man.Good LuckDavid
