    Hi folks,

    New on here looking to learn a bit about tig welding.

    I've picked up a thermal arc 190 gts but it's in need of some love. Fan comes on nothing else and it's got some interesting wiring inside. I think it's taken a hit or been dropped and someone has messed up trying to repair.

    Is anyone here running one of these models?

    I've followed the service manual and everything tests good but I have found a resistor is missing. Would anyone be willing to take a photo of their pcb for me or even just the value of resistor?

    it's R202 I need just behind the main mcb when you take the cover off. Should similar maybe even identical to R201 (white tower block shaped thing) in the attached picture

    thanks Neil

    Old threads can quite easily be bought back into life. It is very annoying to see a thread started up with a technical question but then no update on how things progressed. Makes the thread absolutely useless.

    In this particular case you’ve got no chance of a reply
