Lincoln hd 140 barely sparks

Try switching the a,b,c,d back and forth a couple of times a corrosion builds up and causes a week contact so there isn't enough voltage to work . This has happened to me a couple of times . The first time the fan was running and I had no wire feed action and then a local repair guy told me that corrosion is very common with the portable Lincolns . You shouldn't even have to take it apart to clean it just switch it back and fourth and that does the trick. Good luck.

My wire feed welder wont slow down. I was welding some thick galvanized pipe and went to turn the wire feed down and it didn't work

the speed feed rheostat(control) is shorted or you've got a short on the board if it has one. Hopefully just your switch. Check for a short from the switch to the drive motor. Remember, electricity can and will kill you. Be safe

Ave a power mate 225 amp 240 volt welder that wont arc

Sounds to me like the Power Controller has gone bad. These are a real tricky, dangerous, things to fix yourself, I recommend that you call the service rep, for Power Mate,and cut your losses.

Have you tried it on another outlet, say at a friends' house, etc?
Reset button on the welder tripped? Double check the breakers and all connections. If it was working before, it should work now. Try some different breakers to check for good juice. Good luck!

check plug and wire. you will want to do a compression test while you have the spark plug out and make sure you have no blow-by that will cause it to miss.

Century mig welder. The wire speed is spinning at max speed as soon as the machine is turned ON. Will only stop when machine is OFF.

My Century 225 mig has lost its power ...with adjustments to max it leaves a high weld deposit and low penertration.

What is the fix ?

The wire feed on my welder will not work.

Maybe you can get lucky like I did . Some times the acr volt selector switch gets corrosion in it and wont let the circuit board know to send power to the wire feed motor. You can cycle this arc volt. switch in my case it is the a,b,c,d,e, switch back and fourth a few times and this will brake the corrosion and your wire might feed again as mine did . This corrosion build up happens from not using and or sollecting the switch much usually on a welder at hm that gets very little use. it is common good luck .
