    Hi, I think this is the wrong place to post this question but can't see where else I would.

    I'm looking for some advice on Jasic tig welders and foot pedals.
    There isn't a Jasic section in the welders and welding machines forum.

    Can anyone point in the right place to post about this please?
    Admin please delete if not allowed.

    I've just spoken to Jasic and think I've found my problem.

    I'll mention it here anyway.

    I have a Jasic TIG200P AC/DC analog.

    I have a foot pedal for it which has a dial on the side.
    The foot pedal seems to over ride the amp settings on the tig set. I can turn the peak and basic current down as low as it will go (20A & 10A) and when you put the pedal flat down it will pull 200A.

    I would expect the dial to adjust the sensitivity of the pedal but it doesn't. It seem to directly control the amps. Basically, whatever I turn the pedal dial to, irrespective of the settings on the set, it will output.
    So half way on the pedal dial - 100A and so on.

    I'm far from an expert/professional so forgive my naivety on this next point.

    On researching the pedals on google, there appears to be 2 different coloured dial centers. Mine is yellow, the ones I have found are orange.
    Are there different models of this pedal that is identified by the dial colour?

    According to Jasic, I appear to have a JFC-08 which is the incorrect pedal for my set.
    The one I should have is a JFC-01

    I'm drawing a conclusion that this is the problem and why it seems to be acting weird.

    Has anyone had an experience like this?

    What I don't want to do is fork out for another pedal only to find it does similar.

    Does anyone have this machine and how do you rate it?
