This machine was brought to my shop for repair and it was dead. If you look closely to the photo, you would see the bad shape the machine was in because it was dropped off a building which was three floors high and the customer was hoping to get up and running as soon as possible.


I told him I am a technician not a miracle worker but I will check it out and see what I can do.

I checked the machine very carefully and I did not see any damage to the boards but it seems like the damage was done to the body of the machine inside and outside.

The main power button was destroyed and I was hoping that replacing this part would bring the machine back to life;

these are just thoughts so I decided to replace the power button and give it a try after I fully inspect the main board of the welding machine.

The main and the power board were intact, a few screws missing here and there but to me it was ok to replace the broken power button and give a test.

To my surprise, the voltage readings were there and I took it next door to my brother to check it out. It was working according to specs.

Since the machine main plastic support was broken, I could not do anything about it except to use the outside metal cover to hold the machine together.

So I put the metal cover back and screw it tight; the machine did not look new but it was working according to specs and to that I could say

Mission Accomplished.

    I guess that after fixing this dropped dead machine we easily can say that you are a technical miracle worker!

      Imoudu: the customers should keep their appliances clean and that is 50% of maintaining them. I got in the habit of cleaning them inside out and alert the customer to do the cleaning on the regular basis. have a blessed day

    Good job Waleed: About the dirt, I have refused to work on vcr's because they would literally smell from the cockroaches in side. A friend tech said he would but the unit inside a plastic bag and spray bug killer in the bag leave it over nite and then take it out side and remove the cover and make sure all the inhabitants were dead, and dump their carcasses outdoors, so they wouldn't stink up his shop. I am thinking some of you will like this post.

      Lynn: thanks man. I usually clean the machines inside out before start working on them. I once had a microwave oven with cockroaches actually living and some dead ones inside. I take it ouside air blow them out and with IPA and a brush cleaning all component and all that come with a price; I inform the customer about that and so far I did not have any complaint. have a blessed day
