    Thanks for the tip. Yes I double checked. It's definitely in "Weld" mode.

    Default Stumped everyone

Battery is brand new and fully charged. Idle doesn't rev up when trying to strike an arc. Any suggestions on where to start? Thanks to everyone in advance.

    Well, looks like I stumped everyone. Ok. Next question. Anyone know of a good repair shop in the Dallas, Fort Worth, Waco areas?

    I don't see it written here, but do you have 120 auxillary power?

    Say for a grinder

    There is a 118v outlet (can use while welding) along with the other normal 110 generator outlet.

    Possibly a bad WELD/POWER switch (not making contact in WELD position).

    Do you have AC voltage at bridge rectifier SR1 AC input terminals in WELD mode?

    If no auxiliary power output in POWER mode, SR1 may be bad.

    Sorry Cruzer. misunderstood what you were asking. Yes, the plug works but it's very weak. Grinder turns about half speed when plugged in there vs. full speed when plugged into the generator 110 outlet.

    Thank you sir. Yes, I have aux power but it's very weak. With a grinder hooked up, it turns about 1/2 speed.

    Then check for a failed SR1.

    My guess would be one side is bad.
