The suitcase welder turns on and runs the rollers but their is no arch....thanx
Is the power source on electrode-hot, or contactor?
If contactor, then the suitcase needs to send a signal to the power source to close the contactor, so maybe a bad signal wire.
If electrode hot, then the suitcase contactor can't be closing.
Just by passed it with a screw driver and it arc! Pressed the trigger and it arced thanx for ur help....now i gotta order that partYes, that is it. The coil will be fed by some low voltage, 12v or 24v, or maybe 110 AC, and then internally it closes the large bolted contacts. When operating, you should hear or feel a click inside. You could bypass it with a car jump lead across the external contacts to see if that fixes the lack of arc.
