I have a Hobart Champion 10,000 welder generator.
measure ouput on ALL available sockets - anything?
Take cover off electric motor-generator, visually inspect windings.
Measure continuity of all stator windings (2 or 3 points usually)
Measure continuity of stator thru brushset.
If all measures ok - has to be AVR module.
There is no mistery in generator - just stator to induce and rotor to obtain voltage.

TIG weding is next to brain surgery as far as CLEAN goes.
You must get your AL clean, either by 1. Clean with a NEW Stainless Steel brush or 2. by using a chemical from the welding house that is made just for that.
Your cup must be clean and your gas flowing at the right amount,no leaks in o-rings or hoses.
Hold your cup more vertical and keep your filler rod in the gas shield always,no in and out movement.
In short you must get everything perfect to get quality Heliarc Al welds.
Good luck, HowardRoark

I see spots after welding.
Tig is very brite.If your seeing spots I would try another hood for awhile.If the battery is to weak or you can't adjust up to shade 12 for tig it can be very hard on your eyes.I would try a regular hood on some scrap and see how that works.I couldn't change the battery in my hood so I just had to buy another one.One other thing check for leaks in your hood.You've already done that more than likely.

How do you wire the old lincoln 225 ac welder
What are you wiring? Power Cord? Fan? Transformer? You should see a white wiring block in the lower right corner if you are looking from the back. On the two top post the black and white wires are attached. The green ground wire is attached to the case. On the two bottom poles the fan lines attach one on each side and the transformer wires that are coming up from the transformer are attached on the same poles as the fan wires.

Zx7-225 welding machine cannot lower welding amps with the manual control.
The correct current, or amperage, setting primarily depends on the diameter and type of electrode selected. For example, a 1/8-inch 6010 rod runs well from 75 to 125 amps, while a 5/32-inch 7018 rod welds at currents up to 220 amps. The side of the electrode box usually indicates operating ranges. Select an amperage based on the material thickness, welding position (about 15 percent less heat for overhead work compared to a flat weld) and observation of the finished weld. Most new welding machines have a permanent label that recommends amperage settings for a variety of electrodes and material thicknesses.

Change polarity on older mac mig welder
So, for gasless
MIG welding polarity (when using flux core wire), your
MIG welding polarity settings should be set to direct current electrode negative (or DCEN). With DCEN, the negative terminal inside your machine is hooked up to your electrode (your
MIG gun) while the positive terminal is hooked up to your ground.

What are 4 common welding processes?
There are four common welding processes utilized through out the work industry today. They are :
(Stick Welding or SMAW) Shield Metal Arc Welding
(Mig Welding or GMAW) Gas Metal Arc Welding
(Tig Welding or TMAW) Tungsten Metal Arc Welding
(FCAW) Flux Cored Arc Welding
There are many many welding processes, however these are the most common. The type I am going to discuss briefly today is SMAW. The most economical and cheapest way to learn if welding is for you or not is to start with stick welding. It has the least amount of variables that can go wrong for a beginner. It is not fast paced like mig or flux core, so you have time to watch the molten puddle to see what it is doing and make necessary adjustments to correct the size, shape, and contour of your weld bead. The hardest part for a beginner is to keep the electrode from sticking to the work piece. Thus is the reason it got the name of "stick welding". There are three common ways to strike an arc in SMAW. Tap Start, Scratch Start, and the last is to place the electrode upon your fingers like a pool cue, and shoot the rod like your playing pool.
