Hi all, new to the forum. Just got a really good Christmas deal off of Facebook.
Picked up a Dayton 295 amp ac arc welder with the hi/low plugs on the left side. It has the lever arm you move to adjust it and a locking mechanism that holds it. Guy gave me a ton of rods to go with it. 6011, 6013, 7018 etc etc. Got the cables and all of this for free. So I brought it home and today I took it out to the shop to test it out.
I have it plugged to a 220v. When I flip the switch nothing happens, fan doesn come on and I can't strike an arc. I blew everything out with my air compressor. Checked the wiring and everything is snug. Checked continuity along power chord and good. Jus not sure where to go from here. Any help would be appreciated, I fix and ride alot of sleds and bikes and I'm mechanically inclined. Happy New year's btw!
