A big sale of inverter machines hung on this man's preference. With the engine off, either disconnect the blue wire from the rheostat, or place a piece of insulating paper between the movable contact of the rheostat and the rheostat resistance coil. The exciter also provides an aux. It is not normal for the brushes to deposit enough carbon powder to contaminate the commutator. If you attempt to pull it apart, you'll want to contact me directly Follow up on no arc I'm a relative newbie here. It was not spray arc but it made the customer happy. If the ad is up, then it's still for sale.
Since it has been sitting for a long while, you should try moving the fine control from min to max, and vice-versa a bunch of times. Where do you check the exciter output? Troubleshooting the Exciter Armature: You will occasionally find a defective exciter armature; here is what to look for with the most common problems. The whole control circuit is a series connected system. Troubleshooting the Exciter Shunt Circuit The welding machine will not weld: you can run a grinder off the auxiliary power outlet, and it may or may not idle up on auxiliary demand, but it will not strike an arc. If you are a musician and learned on a particular make of instrument it is difficult for someone to convince you to change unless there is a significant difference. .
Recently rebuilt with copper shunt coils and rewired. It doesn't matter at all which of the two you clip your timing light to. One thing, the one I used always ran at the same idle, no idle up or down. Make sure you are not touching the leads with your fingers: you could be reading the resistance of your body. . Then check the resistance remove one of the wires before testing. .
If ok find the the 2 wires that go into the top of main gen sec blue and red. Round barrel all copper windings. Is there a source of maintenance or troubleshooting books available for this unit? If you have any problems with the registration process or your account login, please. This red line is not part of the circuit, just a visual aid. Two entirely different settings for a cellulose 6010 digging arc and a soft, easy flowing arc for 7018. White wire from the exciter brush holder to the main gen section. In fact Lincoln Electric did provide a software package that allowed a welding engineer to design his own welding current.
I know my description is a little vague but can someone tell me where these two small wires run to. His exciter works, as he has auxillary power. . This type winding, and they still wind them this way, makes it near impossible to get right close to the rotor core. Adding a couple of wraps in the exciter provides a stronger backing for both the auxillary and weld output without putting a strain on the engine with larger loads. Try pulling the exciter brushes up while the machine is running.
As to the confusion on the 1 or 4 timing issue. I just had a new exhaust routed up under the tongue and out on the opposite side usually worked from so it's not blaring at me. . He does not weld anymore due to physical reasons and after the job, he asked what I owed him. Gonna patch them up and hopefully that fixes my problem. I am not real clear on the path things follow.
The other side of the welder shunt coil is connected by a brown wire that goes to a terminal on the reed switch, located on the reed switch mounting bar. Clean the commutator with a commutator cleaning stone. We experimented loaded, scoped and welded with this in the field and shop on various machines, and found a good all round addition of 2 wraps was perfect. The leads are all in good shape, tight from end to end. I was building a sail boat marina and had one hand that was a weldor and my BiL hired to wire brush the welds and paint them. For specific polarity requirements of welding rods refer to the rod manufactures specification sheet.
I am guessing it is still available. There is a chance that the brushes are not making good contac. It should smoothly measure from 0 to 64 ohms with no breaks or jumps: smoothly up and smoothly down. Thats why no two classics weld exactly the same way, Hand winding is pulled tight to the core leaving surprizingly plenty of room for additional windings. I shouldn't be posting when I'm tired Perl Welding, I too hope denrep picked up the correct vibes.
I hope the problem is not the shunt coils, replacing them is a big job. He said no but how hard could it be. Call us for discounted shipping rates. You have purchased a very versatile piece of welding equipment capable of many different applications and uses, you have done well. It seems to run fine but doesn't always strike an arc. . The same timing mark on the flywheel will work equally well for either.
