Lincoln SP-180T. Spits, sputters, stubs and unstable arc

Lincoln SP-180T. The unit was delivered with a bad trigger which Lincoln replaced. Since replacing the trigger it has worked great up until now. Now, all of a sudden it spits, sputters, stubs and will not maintain a stable arc especially on lower tap settings like A & B. Polarity is correct for C-25 and as near as I can tell the ground is good.

Lincoln sp-150 idealarc will not arc any more ground output checked ok fuses checked ok incoming power 230v ok output term for + voltage to wire on spool nopower when trigger pressed.continuity from


There is a temperature activated switch near the transformer that will turn off control voltage until the transformer cools. There is also a fuse for the control voltage. That would explain why the motor won't run. There's a possibility that the trigger switch in the handle is bad too.

I have a lincoln sp-175plus, when trying to weld it the arc just melts the wire and it balls up at the end. I also put a new contact tip in. As well sometimes the wire feed just stops. I then press...


Your drive tension is too light. There are rollers that the wire feeds through and they need to be tightened. They should push the wire through the gun but slip if you put the tip against a solid object and pull the trigger. If they do not slip, they will jam your gun. Give the tensioner another turn.

2006 lincoln zephyr cd player won't play cds


HI.This will occur when the optical assembly becomes unstable. this ((Whole One Piece)), assembly incorporates the spin/load motor, optics housing /arm, tracking device and tracking rail. This is connected to the loading dock assembly. This 'NO Disc' or CD NOT PLAYABLE, code is the result of a failed or burned out lens. It is possible that you have a dirty lens cap. you can try using a cleaning disk in this case to confirm actual lens failure. if the cleaning doesn't restore normal reading capabilities, this will confirm my diagnosis.

You will need to have the optical assembly replaced in this case. once replaced, your unit will be able to read and track once more.

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 .

My lincoln welder/generator Ranger 8 will not idle up when stricking an arc, it will idle up if I plug in a drop light.


Sounds like your CT or CT board is bad. CT stands for Current Transformer. A CT senses an increase in voltage draw or current, which will trigger the idle solenoid.
