    Commonly if 60 amps breaker is use a 5.5 sq.mm wire or # 10 AWG on supply side.

I would run a 10 AWG wire from the breaker to the outlet, if that is what you are asking. I have the same welder works great just wish I could find a spare wire roller.

Can not get a spark


Check internal fuses and breakers first. Then see if the contactors are closing. If they are not check the 24 volt contacter for coil continuity. If that is okay, check for voltage at the wire feed motor with an analog meter. Put it in a plstic bag and tape the bag where the test leads come out- there is a big magnet in the movement. Keep the meter in the bag to protect it, but check the motor to see if it is seeing power impulses from the control board. If it is not gettin pulsed power when trigger is pressed, suspect a failure of the SCRs on the control board.

When the welder is first turned on I can weld with gas for about 5 seconds. Then the breaker trips. ( i have the proper wiring and breaker). The more times I reset the breaker the shorter the weld time...


Hi:
Just make sure that if you are using an extension cable between your machine and the power outlet, this cable is at least a 12 gauge size, if you are using a 14 or 16 it's too small to handle the amps.
Other point is to check that your breaker is 20 or 30 Amp capacity.
Hope this help.

Need to know how to get my clark welder to weld aluminum model we6527


Using a Spool gun and an adaptor to your welder is better, but you need to open your wallet and spend at least 600 bucks. The modest way to go is:

1) change the gun liner to a teflon kind one instead of steel.
2) Change your drive rolls for knurled one instead of grooved.
3) oversize your contact tip for more wire feed freedom.
4) use straight argon gas.
5) use aluminum 4043 type 035 size.
And always try to maintain your gun lead as straight as you can.
Good Luck!
