SOURCE: My lincoln welder/generator Ranger 8 will not idle

Sounds like your CT or CT board is bad. CT stands for Current Transformer. A CT senses an increase in voltage draw or current, which will trigger the idle solenoid.

What is wrong with the idle on my welder? the switch works , it idles up when I switch it on high and it idles down when I switch it down but it wont go up when I strike an arc or use power tools, what...


There is something wrong with the auto load sensing switch which is part of the generator. That is the sensor that detects when current load from the generator drops as in when you strike an arc or turn on a power tool and cranks the throttle to full power. It is obviously working on manual because the manual switch is cranking the revs up so the solenoid that operates the throttle is ok. My advice is to take it to a service centre that deals in welder/generator sets as you are playing with dangerous voltages and may possibly damage the machine by tinkering with it or fry yourself (nasty)

Can I run a millermatic 252 mig welder off of a ranger 305 g auxillary power outlet?


not sure what a ranger 305g is but a mig welder of that size would require an output of at least 10kva from a generator maybe more due to the start up current

I have a fuel prob.in a lincon 300 g starts for a couple seconds then fuel stops going into carb and dies, could it be the fuel pump?


If the unit sat for a while the jet in the carb is clogged,if this is the case the carb must be removed and dissasembled,the jet has a small orifice that can be cleanened with a paper lip or a torch cleaning wire.

Engine oil leaks out the gasket between cases how will i repair


Two options here:

1) The one i will suggest... send it to an authorized repair shop. Check with your local welding shop/store (Praxair has direct connection with the anywhere), they will ship it down to an authorized dealer.

2) If you are a mechanic or know how to change head gaskets, then take model and serial number of your engine (p.e.Kohler, onan or honda) and go to a autoparts shop and ask for the gasket, then just replace it.
