There is a small electronic control board inside the welder that senses current flow and pulls up throttle. It could be the board has a problem, or the throttle solenoid itself. You'll have to do a bit of checking.Check for loose connections or blackened components on the control board.

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)

Does not generate at normal current,wont quite strike an arc.is there a wiring diagram that could be used for diagnostics/repair ?


Check for any loosened terminals and observe the welding machine if it sounds like hamming when connected to the power source. If you hear no sound, it means that no power is coming in. Check your fuse or breaker of the welding machine it might be busted already.

My bobcat 225g runs full bore all the time, I thought it would idle then when you strike an arc it would pick up speed,


A welder does not speed up when an arc is struck. It is normal for a gas welder to stay at a high rpm. If it did not, it would be very hard on the machine as a high amperage is needed to start an arc for welding, and to be consistant. Unlike a generator which will "idle down" when not in use.

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