It should have "thermal protection" and once it cools down it should work again. You need to figure out why it trips the thermal protection, and take the needed steps to prevent it.

1996 Dodge 1500 ... Headlights shut off after a while then come back on... Is this the head light switch burning out/overheating? Bump or no bump


could be a bad switch or a problem ground on the headlight relay
when it gets hot ( arcing as in a welder from a loose ground) the resistance is too high so the relay stops working
when it cools down , connection , lights back on

WHEN I TURN ON THE A/C IN MY 99 BUICK CENTURY THE FAN MAKES A LOUD NOISE LIKE IT IS ABOUT TO STOP WORKING. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO? AND WHEN I AM AT A STOP LIGHT OR IN TRAFFIC FOR A WHILE MY TEMPERATURE LIGHT...


if you mean the rad cooling fan motor then it may not be any good and needs replacing as this can cause a car to run hot at idle and drop when driven with the a/c on with the extra load on the cooling system if there is 2 cooling fans on the rad.one works when the a/c is on or if the coolant gets too hot, you could also have a poor radiator that needs replacing(flow restricting)

Century 170 when useing it .it heats up an kicks a internal circut then cools down an works again till it heats back up. what is the problem an can it be fixed


Hello, I had a similar problem with a mig welder of my own. There is a temperature sensor on the heat sink. This can be in the form of a temperature switch which when the heat limit is reached, it activates a fan which cools down the heat sink. This is how it operates. Now, my problem was I was welding at a high current and it overheated my welder. I fixed this on my welder by replacing the fan with a higher volume one. The issue here is cooling. If you are welding at a high current, then the welder will overheat as the cooling is designed for average use. I am thinking that your temperature switch is not weak but operating as normal. I would suggest therefore increasing the cooling somehow by getting more air moving over the heat sink. An easy try is to have an external fan blowing over and into the welder case. Overheating is the issue here and if you have to weld at the higher currents or welding continuously for long times, then you have to get the unit cooler inside.

Century mig welder. The wire speed is spinning at max speed as soon as the machine is turned ON. Will only stop when machine is OFF.


My Century 225 mig has lost its power ...with adjustments to max it leaves a high weld deposit and low penertration.

What is the fix ?

Welding machine stops working after a few minutes of welding.


there is probley nothing wrong its called duty cycle.which means that if you are welding long periods or welding at max amps the welder will kickout to cool down.Look on your unit for the tag that tells imformation about your unit.It will show something like 30% duty cycle so that means you can weld 3 minutes at full power before the unit shuts down.
