Question about Lincoln Electrical Supplies
Welder will not weld
Posted by Anonymous on
The Lincoln Classic 3D welder has a flashing diode attached between the main generator brushes, this is a cathode to stud diode which also has an NC MOV connected across the circuit for protection from field collapse, it is attached to a copper band and is easily seen, remove the generator cover, standing in front of the welder with the cover removed, it should be on the right side.
This is a common problem on this machine, and is simple to test & replace.
also,... attached to the back of the front control panel of the machine is a 20 amp glassine fuse, next to a 40 amp 800 volt bridge rectifier, both also easily tested and replaced.
check the conduction zone on the exciter brushes, the surface of the brush riding on the slip rings, or commutator, depending on which machine you have, should be 'shiny" and smooth, indicating and insuring proper conduction.

You can try to turn the screw on the carb to slightly raise the idle and see if that makes a difference. If not then there is usually a type of inductive pick up that has part of the wiring going through it. When it sense a current draw it releases the engine from low speed. Some of these set ups don't work well if the idle is turned down too far so that's why I suggested trying that first. Plus is that works it is a cheap repair.
