  1. Heat box fort sa 200

    Trying to wire up my (heat box) remote to my sa 200 welding machine. Got the grinder to work. But when switched to remote it will not weld.

    Need a bit more info.

    What remote schematic did you follow?

    LOCAL/REMOTE switch or in series with panel rheostat?

    What are you using for your connection from the machine to your remote?

    Need a 3-conductor extension cord.

    The ground conductor in the cord is used for the rheostat "return". As such, if the auxiliary power outlet is used for the remote, it absolutely needs to be one of the isolated ground version.

    It is. I covered all the basic. Even put another rheostat in the box. I ether got a wire messes up or a bad switch. Which the switch is brand new also.

    Then I'd run back over everything one circuit and component at a time.
