Flux 80 mig welder will not turn on

If the diode goes out, the welder may not have enough voltage. No welding output may result. step by step: Check Power Supply: Ensure that the welder is properly plugged into a functioning power outlet. Verify that the circuit breaker or fuse for the welder is not tripped or blown. Power Switch: Confirm that the power switch on the welder is in the "ON" position. If there's a safety switch or key, make sure it's engaged. Internal Fuse: Some welders have an internal fuse. Check the user manual to locate it and verify if it's intact. If the fuse is blown, replace it with the correct type and rating. Wire Feed and Ground Connections: Ensure that the wire feed cable and ground cable are securely connected to the appropriate terminals. Loose or damaged connections can prevent power flow. Gas Regulator and Flow: If your welder requires gas (for MIG welding), check the gas regulator. Make sure the gas tank is properly connected and has sufficient gas. Adjust the gas flow rate as needed. Control Settings: Verify that all control settings (voltage, wire feed speed, etc.) are correctly adjusted. Refer to the user manual for recommended settings based on the material you're welding. Inspect the Power Cord: Examine the power cord for any visible damage or frayed wires. If you find any issues, replace the cord. Internal Components: Unfortunately, I don't have specific information about the Campbell Hausfeld MIG Flux 80 model, but you might want to consult the user manual or contact the manufacturer for guidance. Some welders have internal components like relays or switches that could be faulty. External Factors: Check for any external factors that might affect the welder's operation, such as extreme temperatures or moisture.

Where does the gauze go in a soldering iron and whats it for?

The gauze in a soldering iron is typically placed around the heating element or tip of the soldering iron. It serves several purposes: Heat distribution: The gauze helps distribute heat evenly across the tip of the soldering iron, ensuring that the temperature is consistent and stable during soldering. Protection: The gauze acts as a protective barrier between the heating element and the solder joint or component being soldered. It helps prevent direct contact between the hot tip and delicate electronic components, reducing the risk of damage. Solder adhesion: The gauze can also aid in the adhesion of solder to the tip. It provides a rough surface for the solder to adhere to, improving the soldering performance and making it easier to create reliable solder joints. Overall, the gauze in a soldering iron plays a crucial role in maintaining temperature control, protecting components, and enhancing soldering performance.

I just bought a Mishto 220BZ MIG, TIG, MMA inverter welder but it does not come with a manual?

Louis D Biasi You resurrected a 12 year old unanswered question which will now stick on the Homepage, 'Unsolved' despite being answered. It is always better to make a squeaky fresh, clean question of your own. The area where you posted is the 'Additional Information' information are so perhaps the OP can take his apart for you, but where the trigger connects should be pretty straight forward. Electrical schematics are available. Here are some manuals https://www.manualslib.com/brand/mishto/welding-system.html But is appears to also go by the name of 'Rossi'.

P-7 error in miller co2 welding machine

The P-7 error in your Miller XMT 304 CC/CV welding machine indicates that the input voltage is too high, causing the unit to automatically shut down. However, operation will resume when the voltage falls within the acceptable upper range limit (which is 15% above the applicable input voltage). Here are some steps you can take to troubleshoot and address this issue: Check Input Voltage: Verify that the input voltage is within the specified range for your machine. If it exceeds the acceptable limit, consider adjusting the power source or using a different power supply. Inspect Bleeder Resistors: The P-7 error is often related to the side output board, particularly the bleeder resistors. Ensure that these components are functioning correctly. If any of them are faulty, replace them. Examine IGBTs: Inspect the IGBTs (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors) on the side board. Even if they appear fine, remove the output board and verify the protection diodes on it. Sometimes, an IGBT may have a damaged base that isn't immediately obvious. Be Cautious: When working on the machine, be extremely careful. There are high voltages (around 325 volts) stored in the large capacitors, which can be fatal if mishandled. Always wear appropriate protective gear and follow safety precautions. The complexity of the device may require expert assistance.

I have welder Hobart Champion 10,000. I need an

It looks like Hobart made 3 different versions of the 10,000. If you go to their website and enter the model # (and serial #), you can download the exact owners manual with complete parts listing (according to their site). The website is: http://www.hobartwelders.com/service/owners-manuals

The part should be available from them..or with the part number, you can google it and see what is out there in the secondary market.

Hope this helps
