Redi Mig 325 - South Pacific Welding Group Pty Ltd (SPW)

Section 3 - SETTING UP FOR WELDING
The following items are required:
1)
A reel of wire of suitable size and type.
2)
A suitable gun and cable assembly with a “Euro” connector
and the correct tip and, if necessary gas nozzle for the
consumable being used. (LINC Gun MIG gun is supplied).
3)
Correct drive rolls for the wire size and type to be used.
The REDI-MIG® 210c & 250c are supplied with a 0.8 0.9mm drive roller. The REDI-MIG® 250s, 325c & 325s are
supplied with a 0.9 - 1.2mm drive roller. Drive rolls for other
types and sizes are available as spare parts. (See table on
page 16).
4)
A work return cable and clamp. (Supplied)
5)
Normal welding accessories including helmet or hand
shield with suitable lens, gloves etc.
6)
If a gas shielded process is to be used, a cylinder of
appropriate shielding gas is required. (Regulator/flowmeter
and hose are supplied.) If gas shielding is required, connect
the gas hose.
Remember that gas cylinders may explode if damaged, so
ensure that all gas cylinders are securely mounted. Ensure that
the correct type and size wire feed rolls are fitted. In replacing
wire feed rolls, ensure that the key and keyway are correctly
positioned and tighten the knurled locking screw securely.
IM6015
Fit a spool of appropriate wire onto the spool so that it turns
clockwise as the wire is fed.
Carefully release the end of the wire from the spool ensuring that
the released end is held to stop the wire from unravelling. Cut off
the end kink to give a smooth straight end of wire.
Obtain a gap between the wire feed roll and the pressure roll
by lifting the cam latch. Feed the wire end into the guide tube,
between the drive rolls, and into the “Euro” connector guide until it
protrudes about 20mm out of the front of the “Euro” connector.
Close the drive rolls by lowering the cam latch ensuring the
rolls firmly hold the wire. Adjust the tension so that wire feeds
smoothly. Do not over tighten.
Fit the gun and cable assembly onto the “Euro” connector by
slipping the end of wire into the cable wire hole.
Tighten the “Euro” connector lock ring.
Activate the power source; set the wire feed speed to 4 on the dial
and press the gun trigger or wire inch push button (if fitted). The
wire feed roll should turn, feeding the wire further up the gun and
cable assembly. Ensure there are no kinks or sharp bends in the
gun cable and hold the gun trigger or wire inch button until the
wire emerges from the gun. It is good practice to remove the tip
when first feeding a new coil of wire, then refitting over the wire
and tightening. Cut off the end of the wire leaving 10mm to 15mm
stick-out. Select required polarity. See Section 1.5

Section 4 - WELDING
When changing to cored wire welding, a new drive roll
should be used. All required equipment for cored wire
welding is supplied in the optional 1.2mm Flux Cored
Feeding Kit (for REDI-MIG® 210c & 250c use KA1440-4
and for REDI-MIG® 250s, 325c & 325s use KA1440-5).
WARNING
When the gun trigger is pressed (2T mode on REDI-MIG
4s) or pressed and released the first time (4T mode on
REDI-MIG 4s), the wire is at welding voltage. The wire
should never touch the case of the wire feeder. If it does,
it is possible for the wire to arc to the case.
Also check electrode polarity, as different processes may
require different polarities.
Note: Ensure that the correct gun liner and contact tip
are used for different wire sizes and processes. Change
gun liner as necessary. See Section 6.5 Liner Removal,
Installation and Trimming Instructions for LINC Gun® 240 &
360 MIG guns.
Any wire overrun should be avoided.
REDI-MIG 4s – Put into 2T Step trigger mode
Select the output voltage required to suit the job by setting
the rotary voltage switches. (Refer to REDI-MIG® Welding
Guide for suggested settings).
Available Drive Rolls
Before beginning welding, ensure the wire protrudes
from the gun tip by approximately 10-15mm. Ensure gas
is turned on for gas shielded processes. Ensure welding
shield and other protective clothing are in place. Present
the protruding electrode just off the work. Maintain a steady
grip on the gun, protect your eyes with a welding shield,
then press and hold the gun trigger to create the arc.
If it is necessary to adjust the weld voltage, stop welding
before changing the rotary voltage switches.
Adjust the wire feed speed as necessary to suit the job. At
the completion of the weld, release the gun trigger and hold
the gun over the weld pool to stop the arc.
REDI-MIG 4s – 4T Step trigger mode should only be used
for long welds by experienced operators.

4.1 Changing Electrode Size and Type
When changing the electrode size or type, ensure the wire
feed drive roll is the correct size and type for the electrode.
Wire feed drive rolls have two grooves each of different
sizes. Ensure the roll is located by the key.
* Standard on REDI-MIG 210c and 250c
** Standard on REDI-MIG® 250s, 325c & 325s.
4.2 Adjusting Spool Tension
The spool should stop rotating when the wire feed roll
stops. Overrun of the spool can cause the coil of wire
to unravel. The spool hub should be tensioned so that
it neither drags nor overruns. The tension can be set by
adjusting the large nut inside the hub with a tube spanner.
When changing to aluminium welding a new drive roll,
cable liner and contact tip should be used.
All required equipment for aluminium welding is supplied in
the optional 1.2mm Aluminium Feeding Kit (for REDI-MIG®
210c & 250c use KA1440-4. for REDI-MIG® 250s, 325c &
325s use KA1440-5).
Section 5 - LEARNING TO WELD
No one can learn to weld simply by reading about it. Skill
comes only with practice. The following pages will help the
inexperienced operator to understand welding and develop
this skill.
5.1 The Arc-Welding Circuit
The operators knowledge of arc welding must go beyond
the arc itself. The operator must know how to control the
arc, and this requires a knowledge of the welding circuit
and the equipment that provides the electric current used in
the arc. The circuit begins where the gun cable is attached
to the welding machine. Current flows through the gun
cable, gun, and contact tip, to the wire and across the arc.
On the work side of the arc, current flows through the base
metal to the work cable and back to the welding machine.
This circuit must be complete for the current to flow.
This machine’s welding circuit has a voltage output of 45
volts DC maximum. This voltage is quite low and is only
present when the gun trigger is depressed.
To weld, the work clamp must be tightly connected to clean
base metal. Remove paint, rust, dirt or oil as necessary and
connect the work clamp as close as possible to the area you
wish to weld. This helps prevent current from going through
an unwanted path. Avoid allowing the welding circuit to pass
through hinges, bearings, electronic components, or similar
devices that can be damaged. Always disconnect electrical
devices before welding upon them.

FUMES AND GASES
can be dangerous
Fumes and slag generated from electrodes recommended
for use with this welding machine can be toxic.
•
Avoid contact with eyes and skin.
•
Do not take internally.
•
Keep out of reach of children.
•
Follow all safety precautions found in this operating
manual.
The gun and cable assembly is held by the operator
who guides the automatically fed wire along the joint,
maintaining a contact tip to work distance of about 10 - 12
mm This is called electrical stickout. This electrical stickout
(ESO) must be properly maintained by the operator. The
electric arc is made in the gap between the work and the
tip end of a small diameter wire. When the power source is
properly set, the arc gap is maintained automatically.
Arc welding is a manual skill requiring a steady hand,
good physical condition, and good eyesight. The operator
controls the welding arc, and, therefore, the quality of the
weld made.

When comparing the GMAW and FCAW processes, you
can see that the principal difference between the two lies in
the type of shielding used. GMAW uses gas for shielding,
thus we have Gas Metal Arc Welding. FCAW uses the
melting or burning of the core ingredients for shielding, and
is thus termed Self-Shielded Flux Cored Arc Welding.
5.2 The Self-Shielded (Gasless)
FCAW Welding Arc (DC-)
Figure 1 illustrates the action taking place in the self
shielded gasless FCAW welding arc. It closely resembles
what is actually seen while welding.
Gas Metal Arc Welding (MIG) is capable of welding a
wide range of mild steels in all positions, however, more
skill is required for out-of-position welding with the GMAW
process.

Burning of core materials
inside wire electrode
results in shield of gas.
5.4 Process Selection
Protective Slag
By gaining knowledge of the differences between the two
processes, you will be able to select the best process
for the job you have at hand. In selecting a process, you
should consider:
Arc Stream
Weld Metal
For GMAW (MIG) Process
1. Can I afford the extra expense, space, and lack of
portability required for gas cylinders and gas supply?
The “arc stream” is seen in the middle of the picture. This
is the electric arc created by the electric current flowing
through the space between the end of the wire electrode
and the base metal. The temperature of this arc is about
3300°C, which is more than enough to melt metal.
2. Do I require clean, finished-looking welds?
If you have answered yes to all the above questions
GMAW may be the process for you. If you have answered
no to any of the above questions, then you should consider
using the FCAW process.
The arc is very bright, as well as hot, and cannot be looked
at with the naked eye without risking painful injury. The
very dark lens, specifically designed for arc welding must
be used with the hand or face shield whenever viewing the
arc.
The arc melts the base metal and actually digs into it much
as water through a nozzle on a garden hose digs into the
earth. The molten metal forms a molten pool or crater and
tends to flow away from the arc. As it moves away from the
arc, it cools and solidifies.
For FCAW (Innershield) Process
1. Do I want simplicity and portability?
2. Will welding be performed outdoors or under windy
conditions?
3. Do I require good all position welding capability?
5.5 Common Metals
The function of the cored wire electrode is much more
than simply to carry current to the arc. The wire core is
composed of fluxes and/or alloying ingredients around
which a steel sheath has been formed. It is simply a stick
electrode turned inside out in a continuous wire form.
Most metals found around the farm, small shop or home
are low carbon steel, sometimes referred to as mild
steel. Typical items made with this type of steel include
most sheet metal, plate, pipe and rolled shapes such as
channels and angle irons. This type of steel can usually
be easily welded without special precautions. Some steels,
however, contain higher carbon levels or other alloys and
are more difficult to weld. Basically, if a magnet sticks
to the metal and you can easily cut the metal with a file,
chances are good that the metal is mild steel and that you
will be able to weld the material. In addition, aluminum
and stainless steel can be welded using the an aluminum
welding kit. For further information on identifying various
types of steels and other metals, and for proper procedures
for welding them, we suggest you purchase a copy of “New
Lessons in Arc Welding”.
The cored wire melts in the arc and tiny droplets of molten
metal shoot across the arc into the molten pool. The wire
sheath provides additional filler metal for the joint to fill the
groove or gap between the two pieces of base metal.
The core materials also melt or burn in the arc and perform
several functions. They make the arc steadier, provide a
shield of smoke-like gas around the arc to keep oxygen
and nitrogen in the air away from the molten metal, and
provide a flux for the molten pool. The flux picks up
impurities and forms the protective slag on top of the weld
during cooling.
Regardless of the type of metal being welded, in order to
get a quality weld, it is important that the metal is free of oil,
paint, rust or other contaminants.
After running a weld bead, the slag may be removed
with a chipping hammer and wire brush. This improves
appearance and allows for inspection of the finished weld.
Machine size and output characteristics limit the size and
type of wire electrode which can be used.
5.3 The GMAW (MIG) Welding Arc (DC+)
Figure 2 illustrates the GMAW (MIG) welding arc. Solid
wire does not contain fluxes or ingredients to form its own
shielding and no slag forms to protect the molten weld metal.
For this reason, a continuous even flow of shielding gas is
needed to protect the molten weld metal from atmospheric
contaminants such as oxygen and nitrogen. Shielding gas
is supplied through the gun and cable assembly, through
the gas nozzle and into the welding zone.
5.6 Machine Set up for the Self-Shielded
(Gasless) FCAW Process
1.
Ensure the machine has the correct drive roll and parts (all
required parts for cored wire welding are supplied in the
Innershield (Gasless) Welding Kit (for REDI-MIG® 210c &
250c use KA1441-4. For REDI-MIG® 250s, 325c & 325s
use KA1441-5).
2.
See the Welding Procedure Guide on the inside of wire
feed section door for information on setting the controls.
3.
Set the “Voltage” and “Wire Speed” controls to the settings
suggested on the Welding Procedure Guide for the welding
wire and base metal thickness being used.
4.
Check that the polarity is correct for the welding wire
being used. See Section 1.5 for instructions on changing
polarity.
5.
Connect work clamp to metal to be welded. Work clamp
must make good electrical contact to the work piece.
The work piece must also be grounded as stated in the
“Arc Welding Safety Precautions” at the beginning of this
manual.

5.7 Welding Techniques For The Self-Shielded
(Gasless) FCAW Process
Four simple manipulations are of prime importance when
welding. With complete mastery of the four, welding will be
easy. They are as follows:
Figure 4
Contact Tip
Wire Electrode
10 - 12 mm
Electrical Stickout
(ESO)
1. The Correct Welding Position
Figure 3 illustrates the correct welding position for
right handed people. (For left handed people, it is the
opposite.)
Hold the gun (of the gun and cable assembly) in your
right hand and hold the shield with your left hand. (Left
handers simply do the opposite.)
When using the FCAW Process, weld from left to right
(if you are right handed). This enables you to clearly
see what you are doing. (Left handers do the opposite.)
Tilt the gun toward the direction of travel holding the
electrode at an angle as shown in Figure 3.
The easiest way to tell whether the ESO is the correct length
is by listening to its sound. The correct ESO has a distinctive
“crackling” sound, very much like eggs frying in a pan. A long
ESO has a hollow, blowing or hissing sound. If the ESO is too
short, you may stick the contact tip or nozzle to the weld puddle
and/or fuse the wire to the contact tip.
4. The Correct Welding Speed
The important thing to watch while welding is the puddle
of molten metal right behind the arc. See Figure 5. Do
not watch the arc itself. It is the appearance of the
puddle and the ridge where the molten puddle solidifies
that indicates correct welding speed. The ridge should
be approximately 10 mm behind the wire electrode.
Figure 3
Most beginners tend to weld too fast, resulting in a thin
uneven, “wormy” looking bead. They are not watching
the molten metal.
ARC RAYS can burn
eyes and skin
When using an open arc process, it is necessary to use
correct eye, head and body protection.

Molten puddle
2. The Correct Way To Strike An Arc
1. Be sure the work clamp makes good electrical
contact to the work.
2. Position gun over joint. End of wire may be lightly
touching the work.
3. Position face shield to protect face and eyes, close
gun trigger, and begin welding. Hold the gun so that
the contact tip to work distance is about 10 - 12
mm.
Helpful Hints
1. For general welding, it is not necessary to weave the
arc, neither forward or backward nor sideways. Weld
along at a steady pace. You will find it easier.
4. To stop welding, release the gun trigger and pull the
gun away from the work after the arc goes out.
2. When welding on thin plate, you will find that you will
have to increase the welding speed, whereas when
welding on heavy plate, it is necessary to go more
slowly in order to get good penetration.
5. A ball may form at the tip end of the wire after welding.
For easier restrikes the ball may be removed by
feeding out a few inches of wire and simply bending
the wire back and forth until it breaks off.
3. When welding sheet metal 1.6 mm and lighter, heat
buildup may cause part warpage and burn through.
One way to eliminate these problems is to use the
back-stepping method illustrated in Figure 6.
6. When no more welding is to be done, turn off the
machine.
3. The Correct Electrical Stickout (ESO)
The electrical stickout (ESO) is the distance from the
end of the contact tip to the end of the wire.
Figure 6
First weld from A to B; then from C to A; then
from D to C; then from E to D, and so on.

Once the arc has been established, maintaining the
correct ESO becomes extremely important. The ESO
should be approximately 10 - 12 mm long.

The best way of getting practice in the four skills that
enable you to maintain:
1. Correct welding position
2. Correct way to strike an arc
3. Correct electrical stickout

When GMAW (MIG) welding on sheet metal, it is
important to use the “forehand” push technique.
Hold the gun (of the gun and cable assembly) in your
right hand and hold the shield with your left hand. (Left
handers simply do the opposite.) Weld from right to left
(if you are right handed). This results in a colder weld
and has less tendency for burn through.

2. The Correct Way To Strike An Arc
When you are sure that you can hold the correct electrical
stickout, with a smooth “crackling” arc start moving. Look at
the molten puddle constantly, and look at the “ridge” where
the metal solidifies.
1. Be sure the work clamp makes good electrical
contact to the work.
Run beads on a flat plate. Run them parallel to the top
edge (the edge farthest away from you). This gives you
practice in running straight welds, and also gives you
an easy way to check your progress. The 10th weld will
look considerably better than the first weld. By constantly
checking on your mistakes and your progress, welding will
soon be a matter of routine.
3. Position face shield to protect face and eyes, close
gun trigger, and begin welding. Hold the gun so that
the contact tip to work distance is about 10 - 12
mm.
5.8 Machine Set Up for the GMAW (MIG) Process
and Gas Shielded GCAW Processes
1.
The REDI-MIG® comes ready for welding using the MIG
process.

See the Procedure Welding Guide on the inside of wire
feed section door for information on setting the controls.
3.
Set the “Voltage” and “Wire Speed” controls to the settings
suggested on the Procedure Welding Guide for the welding
wire and base metal thickness being used. ’
4.
Check that the polarity is correct for the welding wire being
used. Set the polarity for DC(+) when welding with the
GMAW (MIG) process. See Section 1.5 for instructions for
changing polarity.
5.
Check that the gas nozzle and proper size liner and contact
tip are being used and that the gas supply is turned on. Set
for 7 to 10 L/min. under normal conditions, increase to as
high as 17 L/min. under drafty (slightly windy) conditions.
6.
Connect work clamp to metal to be welded. Work clamp
must make good electrical contact to the work piece.
The work piece must also be grounded as stated in the
“Arc Welding Safety Precautions” at the beginning of this
manual.

2. Position gun over joint. End of wire may be lightly
touching the work.
4. To stop welding, release the gun trigger and pull the

5. A ball may form at the tip end of the wire after
welding. For easier restrikes, the ball may be
removed by feeding out a few inches of wire and
cutting off the end of the wire with wire cutters.
6. When no more welding is to be done, close the
valve on the gas cylinder, momentarily operate the
gun trigger to release gas pressure, then turn off the
machine.

5.10 Joint Types and Positions
Five types of welding joints are: Butt Welds, Fillet Welds,
Lap Welds, Edge Welds and Corner Welds. See Figure
10.
Figure 10
Butt weld
Lap weld
Most beginners tend to weld too fast, resulting in a thin,
uneven, “wormy” looking bead. They are not watching
the molten metal.

Of these, the Butt Weld and Fillet Weld are the two most
common welds.
5.11 Butt Welds

arc, neither forward or backward nor sideways. Weld
along at a steady pace. You will find it easier.
2. When welding on thin plate, you will find that you will

For the REDI-MIG 250s, use the following:
Voltage Setting
Wire Feed Speed
Securely clamp or tack weld the plates at both ends,
otherwise the heat will cause the plates to move apart. See
Figure 11.
Now weld the two plates together. Weld from left to right
(if right handed and using self-shielded FCAW process).
Point the wire electrode down in the crack between the
two plates, keeping the gun slightly tilted in the direction of
travel.

Watch the molten metal to be sure it distributes itself evenly
on both edges and in between the plates.

1. Learn to strike an arc by positioning the gun over the
joint and touching the wire to the work.
2. Position face shield to protect face and eyes.
Unless a butt weld penetrates close to 100% of the metal
thickness, a butt weld will be weaker than the material
welded together. In the example shown in Figure 12, the
total weld is only half the thickness of the material thus the
weld is only approximately half as strong as the metal.
In the example shown in Figure 13, the joint has been
welded so that 100% penetration could be achieved. The
weld, if properly made, is as strong as or stronger than the
original metal.
Figure 12

The important thing is to continue lowering the entire arm
as the weld is made so the angle of the gun does not
change. Move the electrode wire fast enough that the slag
does not catch up with the arc. Vertical-down welding gives
thin, shallow welds. It should not be used on heavy material
where large welds are required.
Figure 16
5.13 Fillet Welds
When welding fillet welds, it is very important to hold the
wire electrode at a 45° angle between the two sides or
the metal will not distribute itself evenly. The gun nozzle
is generally formed at an angle to facilitate this. See Figure
14.
Figure 14
45°
WARNING
Use of this unit on thicker materials than recommended
may result in poor welds. The welds may “look” good, but
may just be “sitting” on top, of the plate. This is called
“Cold Lapping” and will result in weld failure.
5.17 Troubleshooting Welds
5.14 Welding In The Vertical Position
Welding in the vertical position can be done either
vertical-up or vertical-down. Vertical-up is used whenever
a larger, stronger weld is desired. Vertical-down is used
primarily on sheet metal 4.0mm and under for fast, low
penetrating welds.
5.15 Vertical-up And Overhead Welding
Good welds have excellent appearance.
The problem, when welding vertical-up, is to put the molten
metal where it is wanted and make it stay there. If too much
molten metal is deposited, gravity will pull it downwards
and make it “drip”. Therefore, a certain technique has to be
followed.
When welding out-of-position, run stringer beads. Don’t
whip, break the arc, move out of the puddle, or move too
fast in any direction. Use Wire Feed Speed (WFS) in the
low portion of the range. The general technique and proper
gun angle are illustrated in Figure 15.
To Eliminate Porosity (in order of importance):
Generally, keep the electrode nearly perpendicular to the
joint as illustrated. The maximum angle above perpendicular
may be required if porosity becomes a problem.
3. Increase stickout.
1. Turn on gas supply, if used
2. Decrease voltage.
4. Increase WFS (wire feed speed).
5. Decrease torch angle.
6. Decrease travel speed.

5.16 Vertical-down Welding
To Eliminate a Ropy Convex Bead
Refer to Figure 16 Vertical-down welds are applied at a fast
pace. These welds are therefore shallow and narrow and,
as such, are excellent for sheet metal. Vertical-down welds
may be applied to 4.0 mm and lighter material.
(in order of importance):
Use stringer beads and tip the gun in the direction of travel
so the arc force helps hold the molten metal in the joint.
Move as fast as possible consistent with desired bead
shape.

1. Increase voltage
2. Decrease stickout.
4. Decrease travel speed.

6. Check for correct gas, if used.
Proper Gun Handling
To Correct Poor Penetration (in order of importance):
Most feeding problems are caused by improper handling of
the gun cable or electrodes.
1. Decrease stickout.
2. Increase WFS (wire feed speed).
1. Do not kink or pull the gun around sharp corners
3. Increase voltage.
2. Keep the gun cable as straight as practical when
welding.
4. Decrease speed.
3. Do not allow dolly wheels or trucks to run over the
cables.
5. Decrease torch angle.
4. Keep the cable clean.
6. Check for correct gas, if used.
If Arc Blow Occurs (in order of importance):
5. Use only clean, rust-free electrode. Lincoln electrodes
have proper surface lubrication.
Note: Try different ground connection locations before
adjusting procedures.
6. Replace contact tip when it becomes worn or the end is
fused or deformed.

SHOCK
can kill
• Turn the input power off at the
fuse box, or unplug input lead
before working on equipment.
• Do not touch electrically hot
parts.
6.1 Routine Maintenance
General
In extremely dusty locations, dirt may clog the air passages
and cause the welder to run hot. Blow dirt out of the welder
with low-pressure air at regular intervals to eliminate
excessive dirt and dust build-up on internal parts.
The fan motor has sealed ball bearings which require no
service.
Welding Thermal Overload Protection
The REDI-MIG® has built-in protective thermostats that
respond to excessive temperature. They open the wire
feed and welder output circuits if the machine exceeds
the maximum safe operating temperature because of
a frequent overload, or high ambient temperature plus
overload. The over temperature light on the control panel
glows if thermostats open. The thermostats automatically
reset when the temperature reaches a safe operating
level. The fan will stay on when the machines welding and
feeding are disabled during thermostatic over temperature
protection.
6.2 Gun and Cable Maintenance
Cable Cleaning
Clean cable liner after using approximately 150kg of
electrode. Remove the cable from the wire feeder and lay
it out straight on the floor. Remove the contact tip from
the gun. Using an air hose and approx. 350 kPa (50psi)
pressure, gently blow out the cable liner from the gas
diffuser end.
Page 22
CAUTION
Excessive pressure at the start may cause dirt to form
a plug.
6.3 Gun Tips and Nozzles
The gun tip should be replaced when worn. Replace with
the correct size for the wire type and diameter. Too large
a tip for the electrode wire will cause arcing within the gun
cable and possible jamming of the wire within the cable .
Remove spatter from inside of gas nozzle and from tip after
each 10 minutes of arc time or as required.
Drive Rolls and Guide Tubes
After every coil of wire, inspect the wire drive mechanism.
Clean it as necessary by blowing with low pressure
compressed air. Do not use solvents for cleaning the idle
roll because this may wash the lubricant out of the bearing.
All drive rolls are stamped with the wire sizes they will feed.
If a wire size other than that stamped on the roll is to be
used, the drive roll must be changed.
Avoiding Wire Feeding Problems
Wire feeding problems can be avoided by observing the
following gun handling procedures:1. Do not kink or pull gun cable around sharp corners.
2. Keep the gun cable as straight as possible when
welding or feeding electrode through cable.
3. Keep gun cable clean by following maintenance
instructions.
4. Use only clean, rust-free electrode. Lincoln Electric
electrode has proper surface lubrication.
5. Replace contact tip when the arc starts to become
unstable or the contact tip end is fused or deformed.
6.4 Input Lead
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced with a
special cord. Refer spare part list.

6.5 Liner Removal, Installation and Trimming
Instructions for LINC Gun® 240 & 360 Torch
Note: The variation in cable lengths prevents the interchangeability of liners between guns. Once a liner has
been cut for a particular gun, it should not be installed
in another gun unless it can meet the liner cutoff length
requirement.
1.
Remove the gas nozzle and gas diffuser, (if used), to locate
the set screw in the gas diffuser which is used to hold the
old liner in place. Loosen the set screw with an Allen key.
2.
Remove the contact tip holder from the gun tube.
3.
Lay the gun and cable out straight on a flat surface. Loosen
the liner nut cap located in the brass connector at the
feeder end of the cable and pull the liner out of the cable.
4.
Insert a new untrimmed liner into the connector end of the
cable.
5.
Fully seat the liner bushing into the Euro connector.
Tighten the liner nut cap on the brass cable connector. The
contact tip holder, at this time, should not be installed onto
the end of the gun tube.
6.
With the contact tip holder still removed from the gun tube,
be sure the cable is straight, and then trim the liner to
length. Remove any burrs from the end of the liner.
7.
Screw the contact tip holder onto the end of the gun tube
and securely tighten. Be sure the contact tip holder is
correct for the tips being used.
8.
Tighten the set screw in the side of the gas diffuser against
the cable liner using an Allen key. Do not overtighten.

2.
If there is no visible damage to the PC board, install a new
one and see if this remedies the problem. If the problem
is remedied, reinstall the original PC board to see if the
problem still exists. If the problem no longer exists with the
old PC board:
a. Check the PC board harness connector pins for
corrosion, contamination, or looseness.
Changing Settings for Motor Acceleration
If Motor Acceleration needs to be altered from factory setting,
because of the welding procedure being used, locate the PCB in
the REDI-MIG® 325c or REDI-MIG® 4s Remote Wire Feeder.
IM6015
If PC board is visibly damaged, before possibly subjecting
the new PC board to the same cause of failure, check for
possible shorts, opens or grounds caused by:
a. Damaged lead insulation.
b. Poor lead termination, such as a poor contact or a short
to adjacent connection or surface.
c. Shorted or open motor leads, or other external leads.
3.
d. Foreign matter or interference behind the PC board.
If PC board is visibly damaged, inspect for cause, then
remedy before installing a replacement PC board.
On the PCB there is a trimmer labelled ‘Rampa’, this trimmer
controls the acceleration rate of the drive motor from stationary
to the set wire feed speed. Maximum acceleration when fully
counter-clockwise to minimum acceleration when fully clockwise.
This is particularly important when welding aluminium wire. The
factory setting is fully clockwise.

the frame of the machine and the other lead to the Active
terminal of the input plug. Apply the test. (Min. resistance
2.5MΩ)
8)
Welding circuit test: Connect one lead of the mega tester
to the frame of the machine and the other lead to the (+)ve
output stud. Apply the test. (Min. resistance 2.5MΩ)
9)
Welding circuit to primary test: Connect one lead of the
mega tester to the (+)ve output stud and the other lead to
the Active terminal of the input plug. Apply the test. (Min.
resistance 5MΩ)
10)
Transformer thermostat test: Connect one lead of the
mega to the frame of the machine and the other lead to
the rectifier thermostat terminals. Apply the test. (Min.
resistance 2.5MΩ)
For prompt service contact your local authorised Lincoln Electric
Field Service Shop.
The insulation resistance values listed below are from Australian
Standard AS60974.1.
1)
Disconnect input cable from power supply.
2)
Disconnect gun assembly and work cable.
11)
Remove all jumpers and reconnect all leads and plugs.
3)
Remove the side panel from power source.
12)
Refit all panel work previously removed.
4)
Jumper the two (2) AC terminals and both output terminals
of the bridge rectifier, (a total of three (4) places).

If PC board is visibly damaged, before possibly subjecting
the new PC board to the same cause of failure, check for
possible shorts, opens or grounds caused by:
Procedure for Replacing PC Boards
Before replacing a PC board suspected of being defective, visually
inspect the PC board in question for any visible damage to any of
its components and conductors on the back of the board.
1.
If there is no visible damage to the PC board, install a new
one and see if this remedies the problem. If the problem
is remedied, reinstall the original PC board to see if the
problem still exists. If the problem no longer exists with the
old PC board:
a. Check the PC board harness connector pins for
corrosion, contamination, or looseness.
a. Damaged lead insulation.
b. Poor lead termination, such as a poor contact or a short
to adjacent connection or surface.
c. Shorted or open motor leads, or other external leads.
d. Foreign matter or interference behind the PC board.
3.
If PC board is visibly damaged, inspect for cause, then
remedy before installing a replacement PC board.
b. Check leads in the machine harness for loose or
intermittent connection.
