Question about Welding Tools

Sounds like it is grounding out to it self and when it does that is the only time that the cable roller will move this is a century 110 volt wire feed model that worked just great and then all of a sudden after sitting for about 3 months just did not work the fan comes on then after about 30 seconds it just buzzes like it is welding something and the wires on the capacitor on the bottom actually move when it buzzs ??

Remove the gun assembly with inner and outer liners cut the weld wire and then turn the machine on with a welding glove on hold the welding wire with he glove don't let it short out pull the trigger if it moves then the inner lining is wore out. If it still acts like a short raise the panel cover and see if the power feed bolts are tight. The most common problem is a worn liner, I own two of these welders and Work really great but have to replace the inside liner every 6 months due to failure of the inner liner. the Liner can be bought at any welding shop or you can order it straight from the company on line.

Unplug the gun then turn of. this will eliminate the gun being bad. If it still continues check for obvious shorts to ground. If nothing obvious its probably a failing/failed control board.

I have a century 125 110 welder, the welding wire backs up to gun when stricking arc

Hi there, Sounds like your wire speed is to slow or not feeding at all.Your wire may be crossed or the spool may be to tight.I lay mine on the side so the wheel shavings fall away from the wheels. and I open the lid to see whats going on.One time I got the wire twisted and It wouldn't work right and it finely snapped in to.Take the label off and that can help to.Feed some wire out with out striking an arc and watch the spool and rollers.Make sure wire is in the proper grove.One last thing you want to feel the wire push your hand back when you weld.Depending on the use you may need a new liner.Thank you for choosing FixYa.............Darryel

Turned over then it went dead no power at all, no lights nothing.

You possibly have a bad ground wire due to corrosion on battery cables. Remove both positive and negative cables from battery, inspect for corrosion and clean with a wire brush, then install with a corrosion block. Tighten both terminals as to leave no play. If you have any play and are able to move by hand then you will need to replace the terminals as you will not have a good connection and thus causing no power for engine starting and running.

Old electrical box has 3 black wires. new device has 4 colored wires (white, red, green-ground, black - hot), the box does not have a ground wire (that I can see) and the old device only had three wires. ...

Early installations grounded the neutral line at the transformer, but did not bring in a direct ground wire as required for modern installations. White is neutral and should be connected back to the transformer secondary center tap. You will need to drive an 8-foot grounding rod near the panel and bring the ground connection into the box grounding bar (tied directly to the box as opposed to the neutral bar which is insulated from the box). Red and black wires are for 220 volt connections back to the transformer and feed each breaker on that particular rail with 110 volts. Any dual 220 volt breaker will contact both vertical rails. Each light and outlet in the house should have a ground connection, a neutral connection, and a 110 volt connection. Always place a switch to interrupt the 110 volt connection, not the neutral connection. You will likely need to measure the voltage across the suspected two hot wires to confirm the incoming 220 volt lines. Hope this helps!

Malibu ML600TW. When I bought my home, one loop with 160 watts of lights has melted the 12 ga low voltage wire completely (looks like it was in a fire) for about 3 linear feet. How can this be possible...

You Tube has a plethora of videos on how to start a fire with a single AA battery.

The low volt power packs put out 12 volts AC, so polarity does not matter as far as the _operation_ of the lights. Polarity _is_ a safety concern only in higher voltages and AC systems that are grounded, such as 120 volts, but still doesn't affect the operation of equipment. Best wiring practice is to follow polarity, even on low volt equipment (
This is more noticeable in an ordinary table lamp. The identified wire (the one with ridges) is connected to the screw shell of the socket. That way people don't get shocked when screwing in a light bulb, thus, _not_ following polarity can present a 120 volt shock hazard just with a common table lamp. 120 volts AC kills more people in the USA than any other voltage simply because it is very common and quite often disrespected.

Yes, the old puncture sites need to be sealed. If you have UL listed low volt cable, it is designed to self-seal when the light is removed from the run. However, as the cable ages this self-sealing feature doesn't always function as intended, especially when cold. This is a possible reason why your cable shorted out and melted. If you want to seal the puncture sites on older cable use a product such as this:
It's readily available at most hardware stores in the electrical department.

Wirng connecions for 110v pentair pool motor???

There shopuld be a diagram on the nameplate of the motor, or on the cover for the wiring compartment, or there is some stamped indication at the wiring lugs that tell you where to put your feed and what position the internal wires are to be in or the jumper .. for 110 volts or 220 volts.

Going from 220amps to 110 and wanting to know the color codes to do so ?

in 220 volt the RED and Black are the 2 phase hot wires,the white wire is neutral and Green is earth ground,to convert to 110 volts just delete one of the 2 hot phase wires either the RED or Black to only get 110 volts (normally delete the RED wire,so if anyone looks at it later they will understand,because usually the BLACK is your HOT 110volt wire,the White is the Neutral or ground wire and green is still earth safety ground)
