My lincoln welder/generator with onan engine will only run for a short time when it shuts down. It doesn't matter if in use or not, either welding or generating. It is getting fuel and the coil has been replaced.

Sounds like either it's low on oil or the oil pressure switch is bad.

My welder revs up but wont put out full power


We need a better description of what is happening. I see many engine driven welders that when loaded up heavily the engine rpm drops because of needing a tune up or complete engine overhaul. Since the engine can't run at designed r.p.m. the welder won't put out "full power" With a better description of problem, Such as engine is not slowing down but will only weld at 100 amps experts here could help you better.

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.

Welding fine , then machine quit welding, would still rev up, but barely arch!


I had the same problem except it was with a miller welder. it was a bad ground connection on the ground cable. if you have an ohm meter. turn off your machine,but do not unplug it. check for resistance from chassis ground on machine to input ground if your input on the machine is good you may have a bad cable,input connection or the ground clamp may not be making a good connection to the cable. good luck!

The engine has low oil level shutdown. It may be the reason for stopping.

Use the welder only at level condition. Check the oil level, before every start.
If no result, find and check the oil sensor contact (if possible replace with good to check). Try with disconnected and shortened contact prior to buying a new one.

Other possible reasons you already checked

Lincoln Welder Generator Oil Question


Better late then never! im-308 total lube oil is 4 pints for a briggs and stratton engine
.
and 3.5 for an onan engine with filter change.

Note: an internal kill switch will shut down the engine if the oil level drops below a minumum

operating level on the onan engine only.

on your welder use a multi-viscosity sae sj grade or better oil. recommended is 10w-30.

if you work in cold environments use 5w-30 oil , it's thinner and will flow easier

during cold starts. Synthetic oil is better. just more expensive. change oil at least

every 100 hours for better performance. good luck!
