SOURCE: auto idle on a reddy rgh11000 ie will not idle down

This sounds like the idle control solenoid has become misadjusted. To check that this is the case, locate the throttle lever and follow it back towards the governor arm until you find the solenoid. Start the generator and switch on the idle control while watching the governor arm where it passes near the solenoid, if the arm snaps back and forth you probably have a bad adjustment. To readjust the solenoid loosen the jam nut on the core of the solenoid just enough that you can turn the core by the square bit on the end. Adjust the core 1/4 turn or so at a time until the governor arm stays in position when the idle control is on, then turn idle control off and make sure that the governor arm goes back to the full throttle position. You may have to fiddle with the adjustment a little until you find the right spot. Tighten the jam nut back down and you're good to go.

SOURCE: I have a Hobart Champion 10,000 welder generator.

measure ouput on ALL available sockets - anything?
Take cover off electric motor-generator, visually inspect windings.
Measure continuity of all stator windings (2 or 3 points usually)
Measure continuity of stator thru brushset.
If all measures ok - has to be AVR module.

There is no mistery in generator - just stator to induce and rotor to obtain voltage.

SOURCE: I have a hobart handler 120/90amp wire feed welder

I have welded countless hours with Linde & Lincoln & even a few Hobarts & the only time that I ever had the same problem was when the ground connection either to the object I was welding, or the welding cable ground wasn't good & clean & tight. Same on stick welders also. I did develop the habit of grinding not only where I was preparing to weld, but where I was placing my ground clamp & that always provided a better "frying bacon" sound as I went along the business of pushing a bead. In a welder, the only other thing than that is involved is the step-up transformer and your wire. Hope this helps.

Make sure the switch for remote power or control at machine is on the right setting. It will arc but very faint if this switch is not on the right setting.

Not generating power


The engine is not running the welding transformer. It may be a fuse, drive belt or gear wheel. Or the transformer is shorting out. Check these points in this order if the last one maybe you will have to replace the transformer. The transformer is 2 coils to stop them shorting out where normal electric wire is cover in plastic or rubber the coils are coated with enamel as are sum cooking pans. If this is damaged in any way it will short.

Welder will not power auxillary outlets


sounds like either something is shorted out or the governor is stuck. Check the governor linkage to start with and make sure it is free. Then check the push in breakers for the outlets to see if they are popped. If not the brushes or the armature could be stuck or corroded.
