A Welding Machine Powers On But Does Not Weld Repaired. Model: INC-CO

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A regular customer brought this welding machine for repair and the main complaint it does not weld.

They are well known welding machines and highly used among welding technicians in our area due to the fact that these machines are assembled in a city nearby and the parts are always available.

The first logical thing to do in a case like this is to test the output voltages at the main terminals of the machine and as you can see there is none. The power LED light is on and the fan is on but no voltage readings mean a lot of things.

First I want to check for broken connectors and the reason I am doing this first because I am familiar with this customer and his carelessness when dealing with his machines.

Big damage due to the intensive usage, no maintenance and banged up body of the machine is a sign of the machine being dropped very often.

I took the screw off to see the damage beneath and look with a found; a completely broken off connector and there is a good way to deal with this.

A brace piece was cut off according to the size of the damage; then drilled a hole in the side of it, put the screw through it and then add solder/flux on both side of the connector.

That is a very solid connection and once all the area was cleaned off from the flux, I applied power and hoped for the best.

As it is seen in the photo, the voltage readings are restored on the main output terminals of the welding machine and of course as always take it next door for my brother to check and confirm that it is up and running and it was.

Mission Accomplished.

    Although you are always capable in fixing the even most damaged welding machines it in this case becomes sadly a bit dull to read about it. Especially when like in this given example no real electronic damaged or replaced part with datasheet was given.

      Parasuraman: thanks man. it did not make sense to me that it was on but the voltages were not so when tracing the voltage reading I found that broken trace. thanks for your comments and I have a blessed day
