Problems with welding with a Forney 180 amp. Arc Stick Welder

I have a Forney Arc welder, model #C4, Serial #85412, purchased in approx. 1955. It has worked well up until lately. It's very hard to strike an arc & when I finally manage to, it welds for approximately 10-15 seconds and the rod sticks to the work. Also, I can't weld on a lower setting. Can you tell me what is wrong with it and how I can fix it?

Check your input power connections on the primary side of the welders transformer, then if its an infinite control welder check that control,otherwise if it's a plug- in selectable amperage check these connections,it sounds like the infinite control is getting dirty and not passing all the current it shows on the control, also double your O.C.V. on the secondary and see if its with-in welder specs

Lincoln electric ac/dc arc welder will not arc


Check the dial indicator. Sometimes if someone changes the amps while welding, there will be a break in the coil. It will work at a different setting as long as you are away from the break.

20 amps seems like a fairly feeble arc welder--most light models run up toward 80 to 100 amps for a stick welder with wire feed models somewhat lower. Even accidently touching the two leads together should have produced some arcing. You may have a defective unit. Hope this helps!
