Question about Welding Tools

I am wanting to know why it will not weld. It cranks , and runs fine, but will not weld a bead. Seems it is something simple, could it be a weak battery?

I have a hobart champion 16 and it will barely arc it will not make a weld it went from welding fine to doing this.


Could be something as simple as worn brushes, dirty slip rings, or a bad bridge rectifier. If you know how to check them, these are all something you could fix. If it's anything beyond those, you're best bet would be take it to a repair facility. I repaired welders for 18+ years. (just an FYI)

Lincoln 120v mig welder. makes different noise when running a bead and doesnt get penetration


I WROTE EARLIER WITH A POSSIBLE SOLUTION. I FORGOT TO CONSIDER THE THICKNESS OF THE PLATE YOU ARE RUNNING YOUR BEADS ON. IF THE PLATE IS 1/4"-1/2" THE BEAD WILL PROBABLY BE THIN AND HAVE A HIGH HUMP IF YOU WILL. LOOK IN YOUR MANUAL IF YOU HAVE ONE TO FIND THE SPECS OF YOUR MACHINE FOR THE LIMITS OF THICKNESS RECOMENDED. IF YOU DON'T HAVE ONE I WOULD TRY WELDING ON SHEET METAL,LIKE 14GA. OR 16GA. SEE HOW YOUR BEADS COME OUT ON THIS MATERIAL. FIND AN OLD FENDER TO WELD ON AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS. GOD BLESS AND GOODBYE.

Ive got a handler 135 110v - the weld penetration is very poor - using 030 solid wire with 75/25 gas, I have to run the machine at setting 4 to get a half way decent penetration on exhaust tubing, sheet...


This machine is supposed to be hooked up to a 20 amp breaker all alone, with nothing else running off that 20 amp breaker. Also are you using an extension cord? It is usually not recommended to do so, although I have the same machine and it seems to do just fine. Just make sure you are getting proper power to the machine.

Weld arc not stable. Wire feeds, good ground,


Arc blow could be the cause! Put your ground on the work piece and weld away from it. If you weld toward a ground clamp the magnetic forces will blow your arc around sometime. When taking a cert this simple mistake can make or break ya on your cap or reinforcement beads.

I have a problem with **** inclusion in my welds. I am using 3/32 6013 electrodes on a small AC unit. I am welding 1/8 inch mild steel plates in a 2F configuration. When I start the weld I produce is...


A number of things can cause "****" inclusions, poor Technique, bad fit up, Amperage too low, Electrodes damp---etc. Firstly you are using AC-- Check the Electrode carton for the correct ampage, then check the set up, this is the electrode use AC or DC, most 6013 work better on AC terminal setting dont matter + or -- earth.
If you weave too wide you will loose the fluidity on the weld metal, meaning you will be welding over the ****.
before welding the bead, start and iniciate the weld pause a second until the arc is established then move off.

'81 Virago XV750 Will not crank!


Unstuff all those wires and ck the battery grnd for securement. If any welding was done, The grnd should have been removed, so there is that possibility. Good Luck- That's a nice bike.

Car cranks, but hesitates to start after sitting for over 24hrs


Tune ups are always a good place to start , including air, fuel, plugs and for the extra 5 bucks a PCV valve. If these havn't been done in the last year at least might want to start there. If that doesnt make any difference please post again and we will look at something else!
