A Broken Fan Replacement On A Tiny Welding Machine. Model: Hugong








This welding machine belongs to my brother next door. He is the one who usually tests the machines for me after the repair. It is his machine that needed service at this time.

The machine is functional but the fan inside broke.

You cannot do welding especially in a hot weather if the fan is broken or not providing enough cooling.

It is a very tiny welding machine but it is a powerful one and if you look at the fan it is about 4CM wide, 8×8 sizes and the amp rate on it is .45. These fans are very hard to find but I managed to get the same size but bigger amp ratings.

The fan runs on 24 DC volts and the amp rate as seen in the photo is 0.60 which a lot stronger than the original one and from experience it works just fine because I tried the same fan on the same brand welding machine and it was working like a charm.

My brother explained that his worker was welding and the machine somehow fell and a nail went through the fan vent and he started to hear a tearing noise. If you look closely to the fan you could see where the nail was hitting.

One of the fins of the fan broke and the machine started to vibrate. If you look closely where the arrow is, that is the broken fin that was glued back with super glue for while till I managed to get a replacement fan for this machine.

That is the final installation before connecting the main power to it. There are three wires connected to this fan but only red and black are soldered to the circuit board.

I put everything back and as always my brother tested it out and as expected, it worked like a charm and to that I could say

Mission Accomplished.

    Well done Waleed! I can say that you were lucky with the replacement with a higher power blower... It happened to me to face the problem of the machine not working due to triggered protection against high(er) current draw, although the difference was at about 100mA more. I saw this protection triggered three times up to now, in three different welding machine repairs, which didn’t accept the stronger replacement, forcing me to find the exact replacements per each case! Note that the protection was not appearing immediately after powering on the devices...which put me in deep trouble the first time I had this experience...

      Paris: thanks man. I never had such issue with replacing fans with higher amp rate. higher rate mean, stronger air flow going through and more cooling. I always add the positive and negative wire only, the sensor I do not connect therefore not triggering of anything in the machine. have a blessed day

    I suppose that the third wire was feedback from the hall effect tacho rpm sensor and not needed here.

      That is true Albert and if it is not used, the fan runs in full speed.

      Albert: yes it is a sensor wire that I always take out. have a blessed day

    Dear Waleed: Another job well done. The replies were appreciated also, we learned about the speed sensor in the fan.
