1-2. Arc Welding Hazards
The symbols shown below are used throughout this manual
to call attention to and identify possible hazards. When you
see the symbol, watch out, and follow the related instructions
to avoid the hazard. The safety information given below is
only a summary of the more complete safety information
found in the Safety Standards listed in Section 1-7. Read and
follow all Safety Standards.
Only qualified persons should install, operate, maintain, and
repair this equipment. A qualified person is defined as one
who, by possession of a recognized degree, certificate, or
professional standing, or who by extensive knowledge, training and experience, has successfully demonstrated ability to
solve or resolve problems relating to the subject matter, the
work, or the project and has received safety training to recognize and avoid the hazards involved.
During operation, keep everybody, especially children, away.
ELECTRIC SHOCK can kill.
Touching live electrical parts can cause fatal shocks
or severe burns. The electrode and work circuit is
electrically live whenever the output is on. The input
power circuit and machine internal circuits are also
live when power is on. In semiautomatic or automatic wire welding, the wire, wire reel, drive roll housing,
and all metal parts touching the welding wire are
electrically live. Incorrectly installed or improperly
grounded equipment is a hazard.
Do not touch live electrical parts.
Wear dry, hole-free insulating gloves and body protection.
Insulate yourself from work and ground using dry insulating mats
or covers big enough to prevent any physical contact with the work
or ground.
Do not use AC weld output in damp, wet, or confined spaces, or if
there is a danger of falling.
Use AC output ONLY if required for the welding process.
If AC output is required, use remote output control if present on unit.
Additional safety precautions are required when any of the following electrically hazardous conditions are present: in damp
locations or while wearing wet clothing; on metal structures such
as floors, gratings, or scaffolds; when in cramped positions such
as sitting, kneeling, or lying; or when there is a high risk of unavoidable or accidental contact with the workpiece or ground. For these
conditions, use the following equipment in order presented: 1) a
semiautomatic DC constant voltage (wire) welder, 2) a DC manual
(stick) welder, or 3) an AC welder with reduced open-circuit voltage. In most situations, use of a DC, constant voltage wire welder
is recommended. And, do not work alone!
Do not connect to any electrical distribution system normally supplied by utility power unless a proper transfer switch and grounding
procedure are employed.
Disconnect input power or stop engine before installing or
servicing this equipment. Lockout/tagout input power according to
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.147 (see Safety Standards).
Properly install, ground, and operate this equipment according to
its Owner’s Manual and national, state, and local codes.
Always verify the supply ground — check and be sure that input
power cord ground wire is properly connected to ground terminal in
disconnect box or that cord plug is connected to a properly
grounded receptacle outlet.
When making input connections, attach proper grounding conductor first − double-check connections.
Keep cords dry, free of oil and grease, and protected from hot metal
and sparks.
Frequently inspect input power cord and ground conductor for
damage or bare wiring – replace immediately if damaged – bare
wiring can kill.
Turn off all equipment when not in use.
Do not use worn, damaged, undersized, or repaired cables.
Do not drape cables over your body.
If earth grounding of the workpiece is required, ground it directly
with a separate cable.
Do not touch electrode if you are in contact with the work, ground,
or another electrode from a different machine.
Use only well-maintained equipment. Repair or replace damaged
parts at once. Maintain unit according to manual.
Do not touch electrode holders connected to two welding machines at the same time since double open-circuit voltage will be
present.
Wear a safety harness if working above floor level.
Keep all panels and covers securely in place.
Clamp work cable with good metal-to-metal contact to workpiece
or worktable as near the weld as practical.
Insulate work clamp when not connected to workpiece to prevent
contact with any metal object.
Do not connect more than one electrode or work cable to any
single weld output terminal. Disconnect cable for process not in
use.
Use GFCI protection when operating auxiliary equipment. Test
GFCI receptacles at high speed.
SIGNIFICANT DC VOLTAGE exists in inverter power
sources AFTER stopping engine.
Stop engine on inverter and discharge input capacitors according
to instructions in Manual before touching any parts.
HOT PARTS can burn.
Do not touch hot parts bare handed.
Allow cooling period before working on
equipment.
To handle hot parts, use proper tools and/or wear heavy, insulated welding gloves and clothing to prevent burns.
OM-279105 Page 1
FLYING METAL or DIRT can injure
eyes.
Welding, chipping, wire brushing, and grinding
cause sparks and flying metal. As welds cool,
they can throw off slag.
Wear approved safety glasses with side shields even under your
welding helmet.
FUMES AND
hazardous.
GASES
can
be
Welding produces fumes and gases. Breathing these
fumes and gases can be hazardous to your health.
Keep your head out of the fumes. Do not breathe the fumes.
Ventilate the work area and/or use local forced ventilation at the arc
to remove welding fumes and gases. The recommended way to
determine adequate ventilation is to sample for the composition
and quantity of fumes and gases to which personnel are exposed.
If ventilation is poor, wear an approved air-supplied respirator.
Read and understand the Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) and the
manufacturer’s instructions for adhesives, coatings, cleaners,
consumables, coolants, degreasers, fluxes, and metals.
Work in a confined space only if it is well ventilated, or while
wearing an air-supplied respirator. Always have a trained watchperson nearby. Welding fumes and gases can displace air and
lower the oxygen level causing injury or death. Be sure the breathing air is safe.
Do not weld in locations near degreasing, cleaning, or spraying operations. The heat and rays of the arc can react with vapors to form
highly toxic and irritating gases.
Do not weld on coated metals, such as galvanized, lead, or
cadmium plated steel, unless the coating is removed from the weld
area, the area is well ventilated, and while wearing an air-supplied
respirator. The coatings and any metals containing these elements
can give off toxic fumes if welded.
BUILDUP OF GAS can injure or kill.
Shut off compressed gas supply when not in use.
Always ventilate confined spaces or use approved air-supplied respirator.
ARC RAYS can burn eyes and skin.
Arc rays from the welding process produce intense
visible and invisible (ultraviolet and infrared) rays
that can burn eyes and skin. Sparks fly off from the
weld.
Wear an approved welding helmet fitted with a proper shade of filter
lenses to protect your face and eyes from arc rays and sparks
when welding or watching (see ANSI Z49.1 and Z87.1 listed in
Safety Standards).
Wear approved safety glasses with side shields under your
helmet.
Use protective screens or barriers to protect others from flash,
glare, and sparks; warn others not to watch the arc.
Wear body protection made from durable, flame-resistant material
(leather, heavy cotton, wool). Body protection includes oil-free
clothing such as leather gloves, heavy shirt, cuffless trousers, high
shoes, and a cap.
WELDING can cause fire or explosion.
Welding on closed containers, such as tanks,
drums, or pipes, can cause them to blow up. Sparks
can fly off from the welding arc. The flying sparks, hot
workpiece, and hot equipment can cause fires and
burns. Accidental contact of electrode to metal objects can cause
sparks, explosion, overheating, or fire. Check and be sure the area is
safe before doing any welding.
Remove all flammables within 35 ft (10.7 m) of the welding arc. If
this is not possible, tightly cover them with approved covers.
Do not weld where flying sparks can strike flammable material.
Protect yourself and others from flying sparks and hot metal.
Be alert that welding sparks and hot materials from welding can
easily go through small cracks and openings to adjacent areas.
OM-279105 Page 2
Watch for fire, and keep a fire extinguisher nearby.
Be aware that welding on a ceiling, floor, bulkhead, or partition can
cause fire on the hidden side.
Do not cut or weld on tire rims or wheels. Tires can explode if heated. Repaired rims and wheels can fail. See OSHA 29 CFR
1910.177 listed in Safety Standards.
Do not weld on containers that have held combustibles, or on
closed containers such as tanks, drums, or pipes unless they are
properly prepared according to AWS F4.1 and AWS A6.0 (see
Safety Standards).
Do not weld where the atmosphere can contain flammable dust,
gas, or liquid vapors (such as gasoline).
Connect work cable to the work as close to the welding area as practical to prevent welding current from traveling long, possibly unknown
paths and causing electric shock, sparks, and fire hazards.
Do not use welder to thaw frozen pipes.
Remove stick electrode from holder or cut off welding wire at
contact tip when not in use.
Wear body protection made from durable, flame-resistant material
(leather, heavy cotton, wool). Body protection includes oil-free
clothing such as leather gloves, heavy shirt, cuffless trousers, high
shoes, and a cap.
Remove any combustibles, such as a butane lighter or matches,
from your person before doing any welding.
After completion of work, inspect area to ensure it is free of sparks,
glowing embers, and flames.
Use only correct fuses or circuit breakers. Do not oversize or bypass them.
Follow requirements in OSHA 1910.252 (a) (2) (iv) and NFPA 51B
for hot work and have a fire watcher and extinguisher nearby.
Read and understand the Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) and the
manufacturer’s instructions for adhesives, coatings, cleaners,
consumables, coolants, degreasers, fluxes, and metals.
NOISE can damage hearing.
Noise from some processes or equipment can
damage hearing.

1-8. EMF Information
Electric current flowing through any conductor causes localized electric
and magnetic fields (EMF). The current from arc welding (and allied processes including spot welding, gouging, plasma arc cutting, and
induction heating operations) creates an EMF field around the welding
circuit. EMF fields can interfere with some medical implants, e.g. pacemakers. Protective measures for persons wearing medical implants
have to be taken. For example, restrict access for passers−by or conduct individual risk assessment for welders. All welders should use the
following procedures in order to minimize exposure to EMF fields from
the welding circuit:
1. Keep cables close together by twisting or taping them, or using a
cable cover.
2. Do not place your body between welding cables. Arrange cables
to one side and away from the operator.
3. Do not coil or drape cables around your body.
OM-279105 Page 6
4. Keep head and trunk as far away from the equipment in the
welding circuit as possible.
5. Connect work clamp to workpiece as close to the weld as
possible.
6. Do not work next to, sit or lean on the welding power source.
7. Do not weld whilst carrying the welding power source or wire
feeder.
About Implanted Medical Devices:
Implanted Medical Device wearers should consult their doctor and the
device manufacturer before performing or going near arc welding, spot
welding, gouging, plasma arc cutting, or induction heating operations.
If cleared by your doctor, then following the above procedures is recommended.

UN CHOC ÉLECTRIQUE peut tuer.
Un simple contact avec des pièces électriques peut
provoquer une électrocution ou des blessures
graves. L’électrode et le circuit de soudage sont
sous tension dès que l’appareil est sur ON. Le circuit
d’entrée et les circuits internes de l’appareil sont
également sous tension à ce moment-là. En soudage semi-automatique ou automatique, le fil, le
dévidoir, le logement des galets d’entraînement et
les pièces métalliques en contact avec le fil de
soudage sont sous tension. Des matériels mal
installés ou mal mis à la terre présentent un danger.
Ne jamais toucher les pièces électriques sous tension.
Porter des gants et des vêtements de protection secs ne comportant pas de trous.
S’isoler de la pièce et de la terre au moyen de tapis ou d’autres
moyens isolants suffisamment grands pour empêcher le contact
physique éventuel avec la pièce ou la terre.
Ne pas utiliser de sortie de soudage CA dans des zones humides
ou confinées ou s’il y a un risque de chute.
Se servir d’une source électrique à courant électrique UNIQUEMENT si le procédé de soudage le demande.
Si l’utilisation d’une source électrique à courant électrique s’avère
nécessaire, se servir de la fonction de télécommande si l’appareil
en est équipé.
Des précautions de sécurité supplémentaires sont requises dans
des environnements à risque comme: les endroits humides ou
lorsque l’on porte des vêtements mouillés; sur des structures métalliques au sol, grillages et échafaudages; dans des positions
assises, à genoux et allongées; ou quand il y a un risque important
de contact accidentel avec la pièce ou le sol. Dans ces cas utiliser
les appareils suivants dans l’ordre de préférence: 1) un poste à
souder DC semi−automatique de type CV (MIG/MAG), 2) un poste
à souder manuel (électrode enrobée) DC, 3) un poste à souder
manuel AC avec tension à vide réduite. Dans la plupart des cas, un
poste courant continu de type CV est recommandé. Et, ne pas travailler seul!
Ne brancher aucun système de distribution électrique normalement fourni par un réseau public à moins qu’un commutateur de
transfert et une procédure de mise à la terre adéquats ne soient
mis en place.
Couper l’alimentation ou arrêter le moteur avant de procéder à
l’installation, à la réparation ou à l’entretien de l’appareil.
Déverrouiller l’alimentation selon la norme OSHA 29 CFR
1910.147 (voir normes de sécurité).
Installer et mettre à la terre correctement cet appareil conformément à son manuel d’utilisation et aux codes nationaux,
provinciaux et municipaux.
Toujours vérifier la terre du cordon d’alimentation − Vérifier et
s’assurer que le fil de terre du cordon d’alimentation est bien
raccordé à la borne de terre du sectionneur ou que la fiche du
cordon est raccordée à une prise correctement mise à la terre.
En effectuant les raccordements d’entrée fixer d’abord le conducteur de mise à la terre approprié et contre-vérifier les connexions.
Les câbles doivent être exempts d’humidité, d’huile et de graisse;
protégez−les contre les étincelles et les pièces métalliques
chaudes.
Vérifier fréquemment le cordon d’alimentation et le conducteur de
mise à la terre afin de s’assurer qu’il n’est pas altéré ou dénudé −,
le remplacer immédiatement s’il l’est −. Un fil dénudé peut entraîner la mort.
Mettre l’appareil hors tension quand on ne l’utilise pas.
Ne pas utiliser des câbles usés, endommagés, sous dimensionnés ou réparés.
Ne pas enrouler les câbles autour du corps.
Si la pièce soudée doit être mise à la terre, le faire directement
avec un câble distinct − ne pas utiliser le connecteur de pièce ou le
câble de retour.
Ne pas toucher l’électrode quand on est en contact avec la pièce,
la terre ou une électrode provenant d’une autre machine.
Ne pas toucher des porte électrodes connectés à deux machines
en même temps à cause de la présence d’une tension à vide doublée.
N’utiliser qu’un matériel en bon état. Réparer ou remplacer
sur-le-champ les pièces endommagées. Entretenir l’appareil
conformément à ce manuel.
Ne pas toucher aux portes−électrodes qui sont raccordés à deux
machines à souder en même temps, car cela entraîne la présence
d’une tension de circuit−ouvert double.
Porter un harnais de sécurité quand on travaille en hauteur.
Maintenir solidement en place tous les panneaux et capots.
OM-279105 Page 7
Fixer le câble de retour de façon à obtenir un bon contact métalmétal avec la pièce à souder ou la table de travail, le plus près possible de la soudure.
Isoler la pince de masse quand pas mis à la pièce pour éviter le
contact avec tout objet métallique.
Ne pas raccorder plus d’une électrode ou plus d’un câble de
masse à une même borne de sortie de soudage. Débrancher le
câble pour le procédé non utilisé.
Utiliser une protection GFCI lors de l’utilisation d’appareils auxiliaires. Testez les prises GFCI à haute vitesse.
Il reste une TENSION DC NON NÉGLIGEABLE dans les
sources de soudage onduleur UNE FOIS le moteur coupé.
Arrêtez le moteur sur l’onduleur et déchargez les condensateurs
d’entrée conformément aux instructions du manuel avant de toucher les pièces.
LES PIÈCES CHAUDES peuvent
provoquer des brûlures.
Ne pas toucher à mains nues les parties chaudes.
Prévoir une période de refroidissement avant
de travailler à l’équipement.
Ne pas toucher aux pièces chaudes, utiliser les outils recommandés et porter des gants de soudage et des vêtements épais pour
éviter les brûlures.
DES PIECES DE METAL ou DES
SALETES peuvent provoquer
des blessures dans les yeux.
Le soudage, l’écaillement, le passage de la pièce à la brosse en fil
de fer, et le meulage génèrent des étincelles et des particules métalliques volantes. Pendant la période de refroidissement des
soudures, elles risquent de projeter du laitier.
Porter des lunettes de sécurité avec écrans latéraux ou un écran
facial.
LES FUMÉES ET LES GAZ peuvent être dangereux.
Le soudage génère des fumées et des gaz. Leur
inhalation peut être dangereux pour votre santé.
Eloigner votre tête des fumées. Ne pas respirer les fumées.
À l’intérieur, ventiler la zone et/ou utiliser une ventilation forcée au
niveau de l’arc pour l’évacuation des fumées et des gaz de
soudage. Pour déterminer la bonne ventilation, il est recommandé
de procéder à un prélèvement pour la composition et la quantité de
fumées et de gaz auxquelles est exposé le personnel.
Si la ventilation est médiocre, porter un respirateur anti-vapeurs
approuvé.
Lire et comprendre les fiches de données de sécurité et les instructions du fabricant concernant les adhésifs, les revêtements, les
nettoyants, les consommables, les produits de refroidissement, les
dégraisseurs, les flux et les métaux.
Travailler dans un espace fermé seulement s’il est bien ventilé ou
en portant un respirateur à alimentation d’air. Demander toujours à
un surveillant dûment formé de se tenir à proximité. Des fumées et
des gaz de soudage peuvent déplacer l’air et abaisser le niveau
d’oxygène provoquant des blessures ou des accidents mortels.
S’assurer que l’air de respiration ne présente aucun danger.
Ne pas souder dans des endroits situés à proximité d’opérations
de dégraissage, de nettoyage ou de pulvérisation. La chaleur et
les rayons de l’arc peuvent réagir en présence de vapeurs et former des gaz hautement toxiques et irritants.
Ne pas souder des métaux munis d’un revêtement, tels que l’acier
galvanisé, plaqué en plomb ou au cadmium à moins que le revêtement n’ait été enlevé dans la zone de soudure, que l’endroit soit
bien ventilé, et en portant un respirateur à alimentation d’air. Les
revêtements et tous les métaux renfermant ces éléments peuvent
dégager des fumées toxiques en cas de soudage.
OM-279105 Page 8
LES ACCUMULATIONS DE GAZ
risquent de provoquer des blessures
ou même la mort.
Fermer l’alimentation du gaz comprimé en cas
de non utilisation.
Veiller toujours à bien aérer les espaces confinés ou se servir
d’un respirateur d’adduction d’air homologué.
LES RAYONS DE L’ARC peuvent
provoquer des brûlures dans les
yeux et sur la peau.
Le rayonnement de l’arc du procédé de soudage
génère des rayons visibles et invisibles intenses
(ultraviolets et infrarouges) susceptibles de provoquer des brûlures
dans les yeux et sur la peau. Des étincelles sont projetées pendant le
soudage.
Porter un casque de soudage approuvé muni de verres filtrants
approprié pour protéger visage et yeux pour protéger votre visage
et vos yeux pendant le soudage ou pour regarder (voir ANSI Z49.1
et Z87.1 énuméré dans les normes de sécurité).
Porter des lunettes de sécurité avec écrans latéraux même sous

2-8. Informations relatives aux CEM
Le courant électrique qui traverse tout conducteur génère des champs
électromagnétiques (CEM) à certains endroits. Le courant issu d’un
soudage à l’arc (et de procédés connexes, y compris le soudage par
points, le gougeage, le découpage plasma et les opérations de
chauffage par induction) crée un champ électromagnétique (CEM)
autour du circuit de soudage. Les champs électromagnétiques produits
peuvent causer interférence à certains implants médicaux, p. ex. les
stimulateurs cardiaques. Des mesures de protection pour les porteurs
d’implants médicaux doivent être prises: par exemple, des restrictions
d’accès pour les passants ou une évaluation individuelle des risques
pour les soudeurs. Tous les soudeurs doivent appliquer les procédures
suivantes pour minimiser l’exposition aux CEM provenant du circuit de
soudage:
1. Rassembler les câbles en les torsadant ou en les attachant avec

6-3. Electrical Service Guide
Elec Serv 2017−01
Failure to follow these electrical service guide recommendations could create an electric shock or fire hazard. These
recommendations are for a dedicated circuit sized for the rated output and duty cycle of the welding power source.
In dedicated circuit installations, the National Electrical Code (NEC) allows the receptacle or conductor rating to be less than the rating
of the circuit protection device. All components of the circuit must be physically compatible. See NEC articles 210.21, 630.11, and
630.12.
Actual input voltage should not exceed ± 10% of indicated required input voltage. If actual input voltage is outside of this range, output may not
be available.

GFCI Receptacles
GFCI receptacles protect the user from
electric shock if a ground fault occurs in
equipment connected to the receptacle. A
ground fault occurs when electrical current
takes the shortest path to ground (which
could be through a person) rather than follow its intended safe path.
OM-279105 Page 34
If a ground fault is detected, the GFCI Reset
button pops out, and the circuit opens to
disconnect power to the faulty equipment.
A GFCI receptacle does not protect against
circuit overloads, short circuits, or shocks
not related to ground faults. Reset and test
GFCI receptacle according to the following
procedures.
A solid green LED indicates power to the
GFCI. A solid red LED indicates that the
GFCI has been tripped.

Rating Data
Rating shows volts and amperes, or
watts required to run equipment.
Amperes x Volts = Watts
Example 1: If a drill uses 4.5 amperes at 115 volts, calculate its
running power requirement in watts.
3
4.5 A x 115 V = 520 W
The load applied by the drill is 520
watts.
Example 2: If three 200 watt flood
lamps are used with the drill from Example 1, add the individual loads to
calculate total load.
(3 x 200W) + 520 W = 1120 W
The total load applied by the three
flood lamps and drill is 1120 watts.

Step 1: Find code and use table to
find kVA/HP. If code is not listed,
multiply running amperage by six to
find starting amperage.
Step 2: Find Motor HP and Volts.
Step 3: Determine starting amperage (see example).
Welder/generator amperage output
must be at least twice the motor’s
running amperage.
(kVA/HP x HP x 1000) / Volts =
Starting Amperage
Example: Calculate starting amperage required for a 230 V, 1/4 HP motor with a motor start code of M.
Volts = 230, HP = 1/4, kVA/HP =
11.2
(11.2 x 1/4 x 1000) / 230 = 12.2A
Starting the motor requires 12.2
amperes.

2 Transfer Switch (Double-Throw)
Switch transfers the electrical load
from electric utility service to the
generator. Transfer load back to
electric utility when service is restored.
Install correct switch (customersupplied). Switch rating must be
same as or greater than the branch
overcurrent protection.
3 Fused Disconnect Switch
Install correct switch (customersupplied) if required by electrical
code.
4 Welder/Generator Output
Generator output voltage and wiring must be consistent with regular
(utility) system voltage and wiring.
Connect generator with temporary
or permanent wiring suitable for the
installation.
Turn off or unplug all equipment
connected to generator before
starting or stopping engine. When
starting or stopping, the engine has
low speed which causes low voltage and frequency.
5 Essential Loads
Generator output may not meet the
electrical requirements of the premises. If generator does not produce
enough output to meet all requirements, connect only essential
loads (pumps, freezers, heaters,
etc. − See Section 13-4).

SECTION 14 − STICK WELDING (SMAW) GUIDELINES
14-1. Stick Welding Procedure
!
Weld current starts when
electrode touches workpiece.
!
Weld current can damage
electronic parts in vehicles.
Disconnect both battery
cables before welding on a
vehicle. Place work clamp
as close to the weld as
possible.
Equipment Needed:
Tools Needed:
Always wear appropriate per1
sonal protective clothing.
Workpiece
Make sure workpiece is clean before welding.

Electrode
Before striking an arc, insert an
electrode in the electrode holder. A
small diameter electrode requires
less current than a large one. Follow recommendations of the electrode manufacturer when setting
weld amperage (see Section
14-2).
4
1
Work Clamp
Place as close to the weld as
possible.
4
Insulated Electrode Holder
5
Electrode Holder Position
6
Arc Length
Arc length is the distance from the
electrode to the workpiece. A short
arc with correct amperage will give
a sharp, crackling sound. Correct
arc length is related to electrode diameter. Examine the weld bead to
determine if the arc length is correct.
Arc length for 1/16 and 3/32 in. diameter electrodes should be about
1/16 in. (1.6 mm); arc length for 1/8
and 5/32 in. electrodes should be
about 1/8 in. (3 mm).
7
Slag
Use a chipping hammer and wire
brush to remove slag. Remove
slag and check weld bead before
making another weld pass.

Scratch Technique
2
Drag electrode across workpiece like
striking a match; lift electrode slightly
after touching work. If arc goes out,
electrode was lifted too high. If electrode sticks to workpiece, use a quick
twist to free it.
Tapping Technique
3
Bring electrode straight down to
workpiece; then lift slightly to start
arc. If arc goes out, electrode was
lifted too high. If electrode sticks to
workpiece, use a quick twist to free it.

14-10. Welding Groove (Butt) Joints
1
Tack Welds
Prevent butt joint distortion by tack
welding the materials in position
before final weld.
Workpiece distortion occurs when
heat is applied locally to a joint.
One side of a metal plate will curl
up toward the weld. Distortion will
also cause the edges of a butt joint
to pull together ahead of the electrode as the weld cools.

Square Groove Weld
3
Single V-Groove Weld
4
Double V-Groove Weld
Materials up to 3/16 in. (5 mm)
thick can often be welded without
special preparation using the
square groove weld. However,
when welding thicker materials it
may be necessary to prepare the
edges (V-groove) of butt joints to
ensure good welds.
30°
The single or double V-groove
weld is good for materials 3/16 −
3/4 in. (5-19 mm) thick. Generally,
the single V-groove is used on materials up to 3/4 in. (19 mm) thick
and when, regardless of thickness,
you can weld from one side only.
Create a 30 degree bevel with oxyacetylene or plasma cutting equipment. Remove scale from material
after cutting. A grinder can also be
used to prepare bevels.

3
Strike the weld joint in the direction shown. A good weld
bends over but does not break.
3
If the weld breaks, examine it to determine the cause.
If the weld is porous (many holes), the arc length was
probably too long.
3
If the weld contains bits of slag, the arc may have been
too long or the electrode was moved incorrectly which
allowed molten slag to be trapped in the weld. This may
happen on a V-groove joint made in several layers and
calls for additional cleaning between layers.

14-13. Troubleshooting
Porosity − small cavities or holes resulting from gas pockets in weld metal.
Possible Causes
Corrective Actions
Arc length too long.
Reduce arc length.
Damp electrode.
Use dry electrode.
Workpiece dirty.
Remove all grease, oil, moisture, rust, paint, coatings, slag, and dirt from work surface before
welding.
Excessive Spatter − scattering of molten metal particles that cool to solid form near weld bead.
Possible Causes
Corrective Actions
Amperage too high for electrode.
Decrease amperage or select larger electrode.
Arc length too long or voltage too high.
Reduce arc length or voltage.
Incomplete Fusion − failure of weld metal to fuse completely with base metal or a preceeding
weld bead.
Possible Causes
Corrective Actions
Insufficient heat input.
Increase amperage. Select larger electrode and increase amperage.
Improper welding technique.
Place stringer bead in proper location(s) at joint during welding.
Adjust work angle or widen groove to access bottom during welding.
Momentarily hold arc on groove side walls when using weaving technique.
Keep arc on leading edge of weld puddle.
Workpiece dirty.

Possible Causes
Corrective Actions
Improper joint preparation.
Material too thick. Joint preparation and design must provide access to bottom of groove.
Improper weld technique.
Keep arc on leading edge of weld puddle.
Insufficient heat input.
Increase amperage. Select larger electrode and increase amperage.
Reduce travel speed.
Excessive Penetration − weld metal melting through base metal and hanging underneath weld.
Excessive Penetration Good Penetration
Possible Causes
Corrective Actions
Excessive heat input.
Select lower amperage. Use smaller electrode.
Increase and/or maintain steady travel speed.
Burn-Through − weld metal melting completely through base metal resulting in holes where no
metal remains.
Possible Causes
Corrective Actions
Excessive heat input.
Select lower amperage. Use smaller electrode.

Waviness Of Bead − weld metal that is not parallel and does not cover joint formed by base metal.
Possible Causes
Corrective Actions
Unsteady hand.
Use two hands. Practice technique.
Distortion − contraction of weld metal during welding that forces base metal to move.
Base metal moves
in the direction of
the weld bead.
Possible Causes
Corrective Actions
Excessive heat input.
Use restraint (clamp) to hold base metal in position.
Make tack welds along joint before starting welding operation.
Select lower amperage for electrode.
Increase travel speed.
Weld in small segments and allow cooling between welds.
