  • is there a certain age/time when a welders electrical components break down

    Even though a machine seems to work is there a certain age/time when electricals in a machine start breaking down effecting a machines performance.

    My 13 year old MM251 is not welding like it did when it was new. It looks like a new machine, I take care of my equipment, but It's getting harder to start a weld and it's weld settings change day to day.... what works one day won't work the next.

    Is there a tune up package....a switch out components package that owners can buy that will make an older welder weld like when it was new for an amount of money that takes in consideration the machines age? thanks

    On the CV machines its basiclly the caps that wear out (184584) Change out these and power will be restored.

      Thank you cruiser, I was hoping you would see my post.

      The blue ones right?



      Would there be a noticeable improvement if I went with the green arrow caps # 177360's

          Cruizer you may have posted before I put the cap chart above up with the green and orange arrows. . will the larger caps make the machine weld even better. Thanks for your help.

            NO, you want the exact same ones. Bigger is NOT better
