Troubleshooting Kemppi minarc evo 150

Postby Stian22i » Thu Dec 07, 2017 8:31 am

Hi. Can anyone help me figure out what's wrong with my welder? It turns on but won't arc, the amp setting just jumps from zero to the current setting. But sometimes it works and then there is a buzzing sound from the main transformer.

Anybody have an idea?

Hi Stian
It might not be in your case, but I heard from the dealer in Iceland that 90% off all failures in those machines are the power switch and the power cord. My brother had problem with his, it did turn on but did not weld, in that case it was the cord.
