Question about Lincoln Electric Plasma Cutter, Pro - Cut 25

Open Question

Will not cut 3/16 plate. Can the 25 be wired for 220v and increase performance? I do not have a 30a 115v circuit but have 220v.

How do I wire a cutler hammer a10ago for 115 volt


I'm going to take a guess and say you are dropping a 230v motor down to a 115v motor.
If the original motor on your equipment was 3 phase, then you need to change motors.
On the other hand, if the equipment had a 230v single phase and you are switching the motor wires so you can plug the equipment into an available 115v outlet, then I would suggest reconsidering. I would recommend running a 220v service line to your equipment instead. It will save on your electric bill and the motor will last longer. A 115v motor pulls twice as much amperage as the same motor running on 230v. (it may even be too much for the 115v outlet you are planing on using) Your variable rate electric meter will tell your power company to up the rate you pay per kilowatt-hour when you use power at a lower voltage but higher amperage rate.

That said, you need to make sure that the coil in your fancy starter switch is a 115v coil. (it probably is) When you hook up the 115v plug, you need to make sure that the black wire in the Starter Switch is the wire that the switch borrows power from to kick start the magnet that keeps the circuit closed. Beyond that , you probably don't have to do anything in the switch. If there's a red wire, you can just disconnect it and tape it off and do the same in the plug.

If the a10ago's function is a mystery, it will help to understand how it works:
Basically, the contactor has three switches side by side. Where the power comes into the box, there's what looks like a lot of extra screws. That's where the thermal protector is (circuit breaker) that will protect your motor at the proper level designed for the motor. The switch has a spring that holds it open so the motor won't run. But there's an electro magnet that can hold the circuit closed. That magnet is only energized when the switch is closed because even though one of its leads is connected to the hot side of the switch, the other lead is connected past the contactor which has no power when the switch is off.
Your 'START' push button momentarily energizes the coil (or maybe it just overpowers the spring and physically pushes the switch closed). The switch closes and the motor runs and keeps running because the coil is energized. Your 'STOP' button momentarily cuts current to the coil and the switch pops open.
The purpose of this contraption is:
1. It contains a circuit breaker suited for just the motor that is running, not for every load on the circuit.
2. It has contacts that will wear much longer than a standard switch.
3. If your shop loses power with the motor running and then the power comes back on later, your motor wont start running by itself. It will wait until you press the 'START' button.

I have a pro cut 25 i would like to change it from 110v to 220v


The pro cut 25 will run on ether 110v or 220v without changing anything. I made a 220v to 110v adapter. It works well and if I want to run it on 110v it will still plug right in.

How to wire motor sta rite p2ra5e 181L


The green wire is the ground and bolts onto the motor frame on the top part,(should see a green screw). the other two wires go to the two posts with screws to clamp down on the wires. It does not matter which way these two are hooked up, one on each post.


Most motors are pre-wired for 220v from the factory. If you have 220v you're good to go. If you happen to have a 115v setup the motor will run at half speed. The motor can be converted to 115v by moving a brown wire and a white wire in the motor. The diagram is on the motor label.Best to verify your voltage first.

You will have more available power (and use a different larger breaker already on your generator) if you use the 220 plug instead of the 115v plugs. Have an electrician make you an breakout box separating the 220v plug into two 115v outlets. Or your can replace the push button breakers with better quality 25 amp. Problem is that the 115v receptacles are probably 15 amp. Other solution is to try a 220v pump instead of 115v (more efficient draws less amps). Good luck

How to reinstall heating elements. not sure about the wiring.


The electrical specifications are based on 220 volts. It should be noted that higher voltage will increase power, just as lower voltage will have the reverse effect. The (POWER MODE CONTROL) can be adjusted to compensate allowing the user to increase or decrease water temperature. For best performance adjust temperature at MEDIUM FLOW (approximately 1 GPM) this is the average water flow at any faucet with an aerator.

Remember, that any adjustments made on your unit will take seconds to reach point of use. DO NOT OVER HEAT WATER. Water temperature from 105F to 120F is adequate for all practical purposes

I have a 5700 11 horse, (brushless). the windinds appear to be good,none burnt or open, but I have no output voltage. Any ideas?


Some generators have a wiring harness plug. Unplug harness and test for output there. If no output at harness, look for open circuit breakers and test any capacitors in system wiring. Some brushless systems use capacitors to excite armature. If diodes in armature are faulty there will be no output. Generators output two circuits of 115v each when combined will be about 220. If your generator has two 115v plugs each plug will be on a seperate circuit. To verify condition of stator windings, apply low ac voltage (8 - 12v ac less than one amp) to one of the 115v plugs and you should be able to read same voltage on second plug and double the voltage on the 220v plug. Good luck

Typically, a standard electric dryer is 30A 240V unless it is natural gas. If the wire is #10awg then you can put a 30A circuit breaker on it. If the wire is #12awg then you DO NOT want to put a larger circuit breaker on it or it over heat the wiring in the wall. If it was a short in the wiring the circuit breaker would trip immediately even with out the dryer plugged in. If it was a grounding problem the circuit breaker would not trip at all, it would just electrify the dryer chasis. It sounds like it is an over current problem, drawing more than 20 amps through the circuit breaker, or like the dryer has an internal problem that is causing the circuit breaker to trip.

10,000 watt generator 220 plug doesn't work


Most generators have several circuits incorporated within the windings. There are usually two 115v windings, one or two windings that produce power and sensing voltage for the regulator that supplies power to the armature (produces magnetic force) and sometimes a 12v winding to supply power to charge the battery. The two 115v windings power one 115v plug each and together power the 220v plug. Each outlet has a breaker and or ground fault. Since the 115v plugs are working indicates that the 220v plug must have an open/broken wire or faulty breaker. Easy to check, however you must open cover to wiring compartment and trace wires. Should be easy fix. You do not have to start engine to find broken wire. Use ohm meter instead. With engine off, Insert probes into 115v plug and obtain ohm reading. Then insert probes into second 115v plug and obtain similar reading. Look for same reading at the 220v plug (remember 2 circuits of 115v, ground and neutral). Good luck with your repair and email if you have other question.

Rewiring mootor from 230v down to 115v


Diagram for aosmith motor b381 is here: http://www.electricmotorwarehouse.com/IMAGES/B381_connection.htm

However, I believe that this motor will be more efficient at 230v depending on load conditions. At 115v this motor will draw more amps and tend to run hot, but situation rules. Enjoy

Dryers require a 40A circuit breaker to handle the current. According to Ohms Law: Watts = Volts * Amps. Therefore, you require a power capacity of 220V * 40A in order to safely run the dryer, which is 8800 Watts. This means your generator does not have enough capacity to run the dryer. If we consider the full power of your generator at 6500 Watts, this only allows for 29.5A, which is not enough to run your dryer.

If it WAS possible, you would need to ensure that you ran a 30A heavy extension cord with the correct 220V plugs and receptacles on the end. This would require at least 10gauge 3-conductor wire, which is quite expensive.

However, that point is moot, since your generator does not have the capacity to run your dryer. You could try it, but I rather suspect that the dryer will trip the 30A breaker on the genset circuit. If you do try it, make sure you run a 10-gauge, 30A extension cord or you could have a fire.
