Thread: spoolmatic 30a

    I don't know about the smoke....
    but is the positive lead ran through the wc115? It has a current sensor that when current is detected, it switches from run in speed to set speed on the gun (wire feed speed).

    Does your have a contactor?
    Mine did not, so I bought one that had a 24v coil and installed it myself, the bobcat has to be in run for my contactor to close when I squeeze the trigger.

    yes the pos lead runs through the wc115, through the contactor. the issue is with the 115v power for the drive rolls. it runs fine off shop power but not off the bobcat. It did run fine, but the wires got hot and fried the ground wire when run off the bobcat

    I would first ask if you have gone through ALL the troubleshooting steps in this reply??
    AND the troubleshooting section of the Bobcat manual??

    If you have gone through all of it and still have erratic 120vac output...
    you might have a problem with your Bobcat..

    yes, I have checked all that I can. Nothing in the trouble shooting refers to the problem I am having, That is why I am having the outlets checked before I go any further

    Not True

    Check Section 9-2. Auxiliary Power Troubleshooting Page 33 of the manual

    That's why I have Jeff coming out to check my outputs. until then I do not know if my problem is the outputs or not. It may have just been a wire rubbed raw and shorted out (I hope)

    thanks
