Lincoln Mig 180. Says 230v for input. My home I measured is 241v (single phase) I was told plus or minus 10% on most electrial devices. Is 241v ok for my bran new machine?

It will be fine. Just like in your car, everything is 12v, but if you measure the voltage it never reads 12v, it's 13.8v or more.

1993 KD15 series miller delta weld 300 can it be hooked up to 220 single phase


Theoretically yes, but it would be a great deal of work and would draw a little over 6 times the current it did when on three phase power.

It would entail replacing the fan motors, connecting the 6 windings of the 3 phase primary in phase and in parallel. Plus adding a 115 circuit " tapping off half of the 220 single phase" incoming power for some aspects.

The control board would also need modifications as well. because it uses 3 current sense transformers and you would need to rework that circuit to compensate.

The short answer if you were wanting to set one up for home use- just invest in a "Sidekick" They did have a 240 volt single phase version, and if you consider the time invested to change something over that could trip the 200 amp service breaker, if you value your time- the money for a Sidekick would be well worth it.

If you want proof- open up the primary side of the Deltaweld and look at all of those connections you have before you- you would not be using 1/3 of them, and you would need to take the time to make sure the 6 windings were in phase otherise the transformer burns out- it may burn out anyway because the current draw increase beacause all the low impedance windings are now in parallel on a nominally lower voltage- just the potential of fire from that arrangement makes the money spent for a Sidekick to be considered "cheap insurance."

Three phase power went through our single phase butters mig. no fan or torch now


Hi:

Sorry to say this but feeding 3 phase current to a single phase machine will fry the PC board.

You will need to send the machine to your nearest welding/maintenace shop.

I just need to know what my sp250 idlearc lincoln mig welder is single phase or three phase, my gurage has three phase running in how do i wire in ,if single phase


Hi:

Your Machine is single phase, and it could be a 208/230V or a 230/460/575V depending on the model. Check what kind of voltage do you have at your garage first, before attempting to do the following:

On a three phase wiring you will have 4 wires with the following colors; green, red, white and black. If you have 208/220/230 volts available at your garage you can connect the green, white and black wires, always green being the ground cable in the middle, black and white don't matter which side you screw them in.

Before attempting to connect a 480V to the machine check machine's plaque information in the front (or back) for real voltage, because this voltage can burn the PC board of you machine. The same color sequence applies to the 480V.

Good luck.

How do you hook a miller s-22p8 wire feeder to a lincoln ranger 10,000 plus engine driven welder?


you can't, the S-22P8 it's not a volt sensing wire feeder, it requires 24V or 115 with an adapter. FOr CV machines only.

Wiring a single phase outlet


test wires, white u need supposed to be ground, and usually two of the other wires is hot mostlikely red green attach only 2 hot wires if 3rd is hot cap it, home depot also sells basic wiring book that will guide you through this issue

Lincoln ranger 250 voltage problem


Hi,
Check the current control resistor with an ohm meter. The center terminal should have a smooth rise or fall of resistance when measured to one end or the other of the resistor. If the resistor and the wiring to it are OK, check the shunt in the output it'll be by the "electrode" terminal. If both are OK you probably have a bad control board.

Regards,
Carl

Switching phase on products are usually up to UL. You need a good tech and it can be done. If it is marked 3 phase and you make a single, the responsibility falls on the person that did the conversion. Components should be similar from 3 phase to single, just use OEM parts!
