I was welding angle iron and had just completed a weld. I moved to the next point and proceeded to weld and ... nothing. Stick would not arc. I checked to see if AC had power, but there was no power to AC either. Was using 6013 rods in AC position.

Went to web with problem. Found this forum with another who had similar problem. Advice was look under cover for fuse which I did. It was blown. Forum advice said replace small bridge rectifier and capacitor which I did. Still no power to weld or to AC in AC and DC positions. Anyone have any advice for me?
