SOURCE: lincoln ranger 250 voltage problem

Hi,
Check the current control resistor with an ohm meter. The center terminal should have a smooth rise or fall of resistance when measured to one end or the other of the resistor. If the resistor and the wiring to it are OK, check the shunt in the output it'll be by the "electrode" terminal. If both are OK you probably have a bad control board.

Regards,
Carl

SOURCE: My lincoln welder/generator Ranger 8 will not idle

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.

SOURCE: M lincoln 225 arc welder runsfan comes on but will

Transformer is burned out. Various windings are taken off at different points to alter the amount of power, they have eventually burned right through , So that is why some worked and some didn't It has now completely gone. The cost to replace the transformer may well exceed the cost of a new welder.

SOURCE: My Lincoln SA 200 welder will not rev up when I strike an arc.

check the solenoid make sure its opperating ..you will have to check the whole system.. starting with oil pressure switch making sure it is letting 12v go thrue. and also making sure pc board is grounded . and then checking resistance of the idle solenoid .....also the rhostat has a wire that goes to the pc board and as u strike a arc it idles the welder up

What is wrong with the idle on my welder? the switch works , it idles up when I switch it on high and it idles down when I switch it down but it wont go up when I strike an arc or use power tools, what...


There is something wrong with the auto load sensing switch which is part of the generator. That is the sensor that detects when current load from the generator drops as in when you strike an arc or turn on a power tool and cranks the throttle to full power. It is obviously working on manual because the manual switch is cranking the revs up so the solenoid that operates the throttle is ok. My advice is to take it to a service centre that deals in welder/generator sets as you are playing with dangerous voltages and may possibly damage the machine by tinkering with it or fry yourself (nasty)

WHEN I TRY STRIKE AN ARC WITH A ROD YOU HAVE TO HIT IT 5 OR 6 TIMES TO GET IT TO WELD ITS HARD TO KEEP IT GOING BUT AFTER 4 OR 5 SECONDS IT WILL BURN LIKE NORMAL (USING PROPER AMPERAGE)


Is this on new rods as well as one's you'be been already welding with? Depending on rod types, some will "flux over" the end, after welding insulating the tip. When you're welding at a low setting, with a small rod, sometimes it is hard to start an arc. A 7018 rod is a good example of this. Strike the rod like a woodden match, or drag it on the metal, to expose the rod. It also depends on your welder. Some have settings to help start an arc and then control the current. Older transformer welders arn't that smart and are less forgiving on low current thin metal settings.
