SOURCE: welder feeding or arking

Release the wire feed rollers,turn the wire feed dial up to maximum ensure you are well away from the earth clamp, pull the triger, you should hear the relay click in, if it dosn't check the 5 mil anti serge fuse positioned on either the front of the set or on the control panel near the wire feed rollers inside the cabinet. usualy covered by a plastic screwed knob, make sure the unit is unpluged before any testing.

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.

SOURCE: Have a ground and wire is running but will ark intermited

There are two items I would like you to do:
1) Change your contact tip and try again. Make sure the wire is running smooth thru the gun. If this not cure the problem then go to step two.2) Change your wire. If it is too old probably is rusted and not making proper contact.Hope this help.

I have a mastercraft arc welder that turns on but won't arc the overload light is not on or enything


I'm not familiar with this model and I don't know it's age, but as a general check item on any welder, make sure your welding leads are in good shape and that your earth clamp is actually connecting to it's lead. They can burn and tarnish with use and fail to connect. Check likewise the lead connection into the electrode holder. Check their attachment to the welder unit too. There may be a thermal overload protection fuse/device/switch inside the unit which may need to be reset/replaced if you've worked it heavily recently.
If the welder is TOTALLY silent when you switch it on, it may indicate a transformer failure for some reason, usually there is a little bit of buzz or hum. Within safe limits (bear in mind there are dangerous high voltages inside the welder) you might use a simple multi-meter to check that you are getting transmission of power from A to B throughout the unit to the work piece, and that you've got adequate voltage arriving at the work. More safely, with input power totally switched off and unplugged, you can use a multi-meter to check continuity of circuits through the welder to make sure there isn't a break in connection somewhere from a component fault or failure.

My mastercraft ark welder turns on but won't ark the overload switch is not on


Get someone with electrical knowledge to test the circuits. Do you mean an Arc Welder or do you mean a MIG Welder? They are completely different in operation.

Welder turns on but won't ark


If won't arc, then the feed is not moving the wire because the trigger button is not making a connection. Bad trigger. If the wire does feed, then your cable connection is responsible and needs cleaned and tightened.

I have a 125 lincoln wire feed welder. wire will feed but will not arc to weld


check you ground cable, try to strike and ark on the ground cable, if no ark test the ground circuit if the circuit is ok you will need to have the transformer tested and for that you need some specal tools.
