    Can you describe the wire? Are there different colors? Green is the ground if there is. The other 2 wires don't matter which blade on the plug you connect them to.

I'm assuming the cord is there and it's the flat 3 wire type. The center wire is the ground and the other 2 are the power. It doesn't matter which power wire goes on which blade, they are both the same.

It won't arc without wire in it. If the motor runs then there may not be enough tension on the feeder wheel to push the wire thru. If you had a bad kink in the inner liner it will not feed. The trigger switch in the handle applies arc voltage to the copper nozzle. It may be bad or have a broken wire.

Have a ground and wire is running but will ark intermited


There are two items I would like you to do:
1) Change your contact tip and try again. Make sure the wire is running smooth thru the gun. If this not cure the problem then go to step two.2) Change your wire. If it is too old probably is rusted and not making proper contact.Hope this help.

check you ground cable, try to strike and ark on the ground cable, if no ark test the ground circuit if the circuit is ok you will need to have the transformer tested and for that you need some specal tools.

It depends on how far away you are going to be away from the breaker box, using a #2 wire should be fine for your welder.

I have a lincoln 225 welder and when you plug a grinder or band saw into it and you lay the band saw on a metal table beside the welder after your done using it it arcs on the table, and a grinder does the...


the first thing with this situation is be vary careful this can KILL,
insure that the ground contact to your welder is of good quality, you might have a voltage induced in the metal frame of your welder by the large transformer(inductor) used to modify the voltage/current to a value you can weld with, with a good ground this will not happen, if the ground contact is poor, and you repair the contact, plug it in and it trips the barker, your welder is faulty by way of the primary coil in the inductor contacting the metal body of the welder, this is not worth repairing, also look for any wires that may have worn off its insulation and are contacting the mettle frame of the welder, a good ground will save your life, insure that all your power tools that have a 3 wire cord have a ground contact. good luck and always be safe

Welder doesnt turn on...


Have you connected the feed from your breaker box to ADJACENT lugs on a dual pole breaker? By code you must use a ganged breaker.

You should use a voltmeter to verify the plug is getting power on teh desired pins.
