An arc welder is a very simple transformer, Inside it you will find there are two sets of windings, a lighter one and a very heavy one, the lighter one is the primary which works off your home mains and the heavy winding is the secondary that supplies your welding current. The secondary winding has several taps for different currents - these go to the connection for the 'torch' the end of the winding is the ground tap and would usually appear to come from the bottom or the beginning of the secondary coil.
Hope this makes sense to you. If not, come back to me and we can try work it out.

Hooking up my heater


The white is the common neutral, it is probably a 3 wire unit, and you are missing the ground wire. Check inside the control panel and see if someone wired it using the white wire for the ground, it will be screwed into a terminal lug. Check the schematics to see if the unit requires a common neutral to run the controls.

Installing a Dayton G73


How many amps is your service? And what gauge wire did you use for the heater?
If your service is only 40amps that is your problem. You don't have enough amps for the heater and the rest of your house, you will have to upgrade your service.
