Question about Welding Tools

1 Answer

I have a Hobart Champion 8500 stick welder. I am having trouble with getting it to weld on automatic idle as it will not idle up; but on 110 circuit it does idle up. I was wondering could it be the idle transformer? Can you help me?

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)

I have a Hobart Champion 10,000 welder generator. It runs but I am getting no juice out of it. Won't weld or put out power to run anything.


measure ouput on ALL available sockets - anything?
Take cover off electric motor-generator, visually inspect windings.
Measure continuity of all stator windings (2 or 3 points usually)
Measure continuity of stator thru brushset.
If all measures ok - has to be AVR module.

There is no mistery in generator - just stator to induce and rotor to obtain voltage.

Champion 8500 doesn't have full voltage underload


Sounds like you need a tune up. Check or replace spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter, carberator, and idle linkages.

Won't idle down between welding


have you went to your local welding store? Praxair or airgas can call Hobart for the part you request,or they will call their Hobart salesman for you.
