Wire speed is controlled by the rheostat attatched to the speed control knob on the front of your welder/Unplug unit, take it apart and see if there is a loose connection going to the rheostat. If all connections look good, either the rheostat is bad or there is a break in the wiring under the plactic coating on the wire that you cannot see. Good luck

SOURCE: my welders wire speed control will not slow down

Speed control potentiometer is good place to look.
Put meter leads on it, set to ohms position and see if there is a variation in ohm values when rotating knob. If not it is bad. Take it out and spray it with panther ****, sorry, cleaning lubricate and see if that will fix it before buying new one.

Pro form sport 1000 treadmill goes full speed on power up


Typically when this occurs, it is an indication of a short circuit in the motor controller board. To test to make sure the problem is in the board


1) Unplug the treadmill from the wall.

2) Remove the motor hood.

3) Unplug the speed wires from the board. On many boards, you will have 2 to 3 wires that control speed and many are labeled H, W, and L. If you cannot find the speed wires, do not guess, contact us with your make and model number and we will try to help you with the wiring.

4) Return the treadmill to a usable position once the speed wires are disconnected and plug the treadmill back in.

5) If the treadmill begins to run at full speed, the motor control has failed and requires replacement.

6) If the treadmill does not run at full speed you could have a speed input problem, wiring problem, or another short circuit.

Nordyne FEH-017HA-04 furnace fan is running full speed on ac but not on furnace


Multiple speed fans are always wired to run on "HI" for A/C and a lower speed for heat. If there are more than 3 wires on the fan motor, its probably a multiple speed.

I PUT IN A 3SPEED FAN SWITCH I GIVE IT A PULL FOR THE 3 SPEEDS BUT I CAN'T TURN IT OFF HELP


Check your wiring and the diagram that come with the switch... You might have the Hot Wire (power wire... usually black in color) wired directly to the motor.

Normally the switch will have a common wired....which should be the hot wire...then it should have a wire for each speed. Double check your wiring and wiring diagram. I'm Sure It was just a small oversite.

Make Sure You Have The Power Off While Working With ELECTRICITY!

My powertrek treadmill when switched on goes straight to full speed & will go at this speed only


Typically when this occurs, it is an indication of a short circuit in the motor controller. Please follow the following steps to solve the problem:

First Test
1)Unplug the treadmill from the wall.
2)Remove the motor hood.
3)Unplug the speed wires from the controller. On many controllers, you will have 2 to 3 wires that control speed and many are labeled H, W, and L. If you cannot find the speed wires, do not guess, contact us with your make and model number and we will try to help you with the wiring.
4)Return the treadmill to a usable position once the speed wires are disconnected and plug the treadmill back in.
5)If the treadmill begins to run at full speed, the motor control has failed and requires replacement.
6)If the treadmill does not run at full speed you could have a speed input problem, wiring problem, or another short circuit.

Second Test
1)Unplug your treadmill from the wall.
2)Remove the motor hood.
3)Check and see if your controller has three speed wires labeled H, W, and L or a unified wiring harness labeled H, W, and L from the console. If not, you have a digital controller and full speed upon power up is always a failed controller. No need for further testing...you need to replace the controller.

I have a century wire weed welder 225 amp. As soon as I flip the power switch the wire feed motor goes on full speed and is not adjustable. This happens with the trigger switch disconnected. I checked...


it will be a problem relay that turns the feed motor on when the trigger is pressed
that relay is either permanently energized from the board or has failed and the points are stuck together

Welder always pulsates and doesnt feed wire at a steady speed. There is also a humm sound when you turn it on also sometimes it doesnt work at all


Most welders hum when turned on. The pulsation could be the unsteady feed. The feed could be one of several things. The rollers that drive the wire could be adjusted too loose. The tip could be damaged/burnt/melted. The tube that the wire feeds through inside the lead could be damaged or kinked. Be careful when welding that you don't have the lead bent too much -- keep it as straight as possible. This will minimize problems due to kinking. When you say it doesn't work at all, if you mean doesn't feed, this could be the same problem. If it doesn't turn on at all, that's something else. Post more details and we'll see what we can do.

Wire Speed Increases when voltage increases


What is it doing? stabbing the wire into the work? The voltage is too low for the speed of the wire feed.. Turn up your voltage and slow down the wire. then increase your wire according to the speed of travel of weld. That is an awesome machine but it is still up to you to get the settings dialed in. Good Luck, Ned.
