You probably want a "tap switch" rather than a barrel switch.

Here is a site to give ideas:

"Locked Door" flashes after interrupting self clean...


Hi robertkbrown...you may want to try to following steps.....good luck my friend...chris If ?LOC DOOR? is flashing in the display of your range or oven, and the self-clean cycle has not been selected, follow the steps below to reset your control: Motorized Switch 1. With the door open, locate the door jamb switch on the face of the oven. It will look like a small black post or dowel. 2. Push it in until the oven cavity light goes off, indicating that the oven believes the door is closed. 3. While you hold the door jamb switch in this position, complete the following steps. 4. Press the Clean pad, wait 10 seconds. 5. When the cycle initiates, press the clear/off or cancel pad immediately to cancel it. 6. Wait 10 seconds for the display to clear. 7. The door should unlock and there should not be a need for service. Manual Switch 1. Press the Clean pad. 2. Close the door. 3. Slide the latch to lock the door. 4. Hit the cancel button immediately. 5. Unlock the door.

Is ther a fuel shut off valve on bobcat 225 welder


No shut off unless someone installed it- a good idea if ithas running gear. Unit has an electric fuel pump. Check to make sure wiring to it is in good condition and not brittle from heat. When in start position, there should be 12 volts to pump- it bypasses the oil pressure switch until key is moved to run position.

Check the fuse to the fuel pump to see if it has not fatigue failed- it will look okay but no continuity.

If fues is good, then next:
The Oil pressure switch is in the circuit to shut off fuel It may be defective, or fuel pump may be defective. Check for continuity with a full oil level first. If you do not get about 5 ohms or less continuity, replace switch.

My mig welder will not make an arc


There is a small chance the transformer burned out, but more likely the switch has dirty contacts or burned out. If you turn the switch through all heat positions 2 or 3 times before you start welding in the morning, it should remedy it in the future. In the short term, spray some contact cleaner (or even WD 40 in this rare instance) into the heat selector switch and rotate it through the ranges a number of times to remove corrosion from contacts.

Will the wire arc when dragged across the ground clamp? If not- there are internal fuses in the machine and they may be loose or blown. There should be one in series with the "hot side" (the gun) of the circuit and sometimes on the ground clamp side of the circuit.

There is a small chance the transformer burned out, but more likely the switch has severely corroded or dirty contacts or the switch burned out.

Tries to ignite 3 times but does not ignite. Red light blinks 7 times usually when not working. Last time it was 8 times. Had service person in, but they have not found out what the problem is.


Sounds like a safety device is open, the pressure switch or if older unit it will have another type of safety switch, but the switch has to close when a call for heat begins. A pressure switch on newer units have a small rubber type hose to a port on the heater next to draft motor assembly, check the hose and port for a restriction, if all clear then the pressure switch may need replaced.

Im looking into getting a mig and have come across the century (by lincoln) welders for 299. is this a quality welder and of same quality as a Lincoln brand.


No, it's not going to be equal to the Lincoln in all ways- but if Lincoln built it it'll be a decent machine.

In all honesty, if you can only have one welder it should be a stick welder. Mig welders are full of problems and, while ideally suited to 8 hour a day 7 days a week use, can be finicky as heck when used infrequently.

The stick welder allows you to work in all positions and all conditions, it's generally cheaper than Mig welding and it's usually faster.

Cannot adjust heat range


What brand and model are you using? Could be weak contact points or a dislodged switch. Try opening the casing and visually inspecting the switch. You can also try just toggling through the heat ranges for 30 seconds, clearing up anything that might've gunked up the contact points...has worked for me on my Lincoln

Miller syncrowave 200 makes buzzing noise from spark gaps.


Odd noises other than the normal sound of the spark gap working are often the result of dust and junk inside the case of your welder. That it also bogs down when it gets warmed up (fan comes on), also points to a need for some "annual maintenance" stuff being done.

Completely isolate the machine from the building power supply, pul the plug, open the circuit breaker, do whatever it is that makes the machine have no connection to any power.

Take off the covers with a 10mm or 3/8 inch socket (can't remember which)

Use a shop vac to **** out all of the dust and debris out of the machine. Low pressure (40 psi) air can sometimes be helpful to dislodge caked on dirt. Avoid any metal tools near the capacitor bank inside the welder.

Wipe off the fan blades.

Clean the spark gap electrodes by inserting and removing a matchbook cover, a business card, or a piece of white cardboard several times. Inspect the electrodes and adjust them according to the manual that came with the welder.

Check all of the power wiring connections for tightness by gently tugging on them. Look for signs of overheating on the power connections and on the internal connections to the welding terminals. Check the range switch for heating too.

With the cover still off, reconnect the power and turn the welder on. Look for obviously vibrating laminations on the main input transformer. If you see one buzzing back and forth, or if you notice lots of wear and tear on the varnish coating of the laminations, shut everything down and repair the loose laminations with some anti-fungal high voltage varnish.

Turn the welder off, disconnect the power, and put it all back together. Then turn the power back on and weld something, if htere is still a buzzing noise you'll need a Miller tech to solve the problem, you likely have a bad input transfirmer.

Carl
