    replied to Hobart Ultraweld 130- What is it?
    Well, Hobart got back to me with an owners manual with a parts breakdown and an electrical schematic. The power indicator does not turn green when powered up. The switch labeled 320 is supposed to be 230, have to switch it and swap a couple of jumpers. So I'll have a go with it on 230v this weekend...

    I know, right? I'm wondering if it was a typo when it was manufactured. Either way I don't have much to lose by wiring it to a 240v plug and plugging it in. When it quits raining I'll run a cord outside and give it a go....

    Keith, you wouldn't happen to know what model (if at all) the UW130 is twinned with would you? Trying to dig up more info on mine.

    Update, I made new cables and picked up some fresh rod just to rule out possibilities. Still no weld. Hooked up my voltmeter to the leads, and I get 17V. That seems quite low. I would like to find out what I need to do to run it on 220, and what to maybe check inside, common culprits in this type of...

    This is what the fave of the machine looks like. Now most of my stick welding experience is on a Miller thunderbolt XL AC/DC. I'm not super familiar with having adjustable arc force and hot start. (Which is what intrigued me with this machine, just something to play around with at home). Would you happen...

    I picked it up for free from a stranger who said he had seen it weld a long time ago, and it's been sitting for years. (The rod holder alone is worth more than what it cost me to go pick it up so I'm not out much either way)

    There is a switch inside, labeled "115" on one side...

    Sorry to drag up an old thread. I picked one of these up today. Original plug cut off and a regular 110v plug put in. Take it home, plug it in, fan turns on, but won't weld. Wondering if anyone can offer some insight. Thanks
