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)

Transformer is burned out. Various windings are taken off at different points to alter the amount of power, they have eventually burned right through , So that is why some worked and some didn't It has now completely gone. The cost to replace the transformer may well exceed the cost of a new welder.

My Lincoln SA 200 welder will not rev up when I strike an arc.


Need code number to be exact, but sounds like the wiring to the current transformer is incorrect.
