NOTICE − Indicates statements not related to personal injury.
Indicates special instructions.
This group of symbols means Warning! Watch Out! ELECTRIC
SHOCK, MOVING PARTS, and HOT PARTS hazards. Consult symbols and related instructions below for necessary actions to avoid the
hazards.
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 unit.
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 output in damp areas, if movement is confined, 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!
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).
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. Do not
test or reset GFCI receptacles at idle speed/low voltage or the
GFCI will be damaged and not provide protection from electric
shock caused by a ground fault.
SIGNIFICANT DC VOLTAGE exists in inverter power
sources AFTER stopping engine.
Stop engine on inverter and discharge input capacitors according
to instructions in Maintenance Section 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.
Properly install, ground, and operate this equipment according to
its Owner’s Manual and national, state, and local codes.
OM-266 040 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.
If inside, ventilate the 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.
OM-266 040 Page 2
Be alert that welding sparks and hot materials from welding can
easily go through small cracks and openings to adjacent areas.
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 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 may 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.
Wear approved ear protection if noise level is
high.
ELECTRIC AND MAGNETIC FIELDS (EMF)
can affect Implanted Medical Devices.
Wearers of Pacemakers and other Implanted
Medical Devices should keep away.
Implanted Medical Device wearers should consult their doctor and the device manufacturer before going near arc
welding, spot welding, gouging, plasma arc cutting, or induction
heating operations.
CYLINDERS can explode if damaged.
Compressed gas cylinders contain gas under high
pressure. If damaged, a cylinder can explode. Since
gas cylinders are normally part of the welding
process, be sure to treat them carefully.
Protect compressed gas cylinders from excessive heat, mechanical shocks, physical damage, slag, open flames, sparks, and arcs.
Install cylinders in an upright position by securing to a stationary
support or cylinder rack to prevent falling or tipping.
Keep cylinders away from any welding or other electrical circuits.
Never drape a welding torch over a gas cylinder.
Never allow a welding electrode to touch any cylinder.
Never weld on a pressurized cylinder — explosion will result.
Use only correct compressed gas cylinders, regulators, hoses,
and fittings designed for the specific application; maintain them
and associated parts in good condition.
Turn face away from valve outlet when opening cylinder valve. Do
not stand in front of or behind the regulator when opening the valve.
Keep protective cap in place over valve except when cylinder is in
use or connected for use.
Use the right equipment, correct procedures, and sufficient number of persons to lift and move cylinders.
Read and follow instructions on compressed gas cylinders,
associated equipment, and Compressed Gas Association (CGA)
publication P-1 listed in Safety Standards.

STEAM AND HOT COOLANT can burn.
If possible, check coolant level when engine is
cold to avoid scalding.
Always check coolant level at overflow tank, if
present on unit, instead of radiator (unless told
otherwise in maintenance section or engine manual).
If the engine is warm, checking is needed, and there is no overflow tank, follow the next two statements.
Wear safety glasses and gloves and put a rag over radiator cap.
Turn cap slightly and let pressure escape slowly before
completely removing cap.
Using a generator indoors CAN KILL
YOU IN MINUTES.
Generator exhaust contains carbon monoxide.
This is a poison you cannot see or smell.
NEVER use inside a home or garage, EVEN IF
doors and windows are open.
Only use OUTSIDE and far away from windows, doors, and
vents.
BATTERY ACID can BURN SKIN and EYES.
Do not tip battery.
Replace damaged battery.
Flush eyes and skin immediately with water.

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 may 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-266 040 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.

Au cours de l’utilisation, tenir toute personne à l’écart et plus
particulièrement les enfants.
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 se servir de source électrique à courant électrique dans les
zones humides, dans les endroits confinés ou là où on risque de
tomber.
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!
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).
Installez, mettez à la terre et utilisez correctement cet équipement
conformément à son Manuel d’Utilisation et aux réglementations
nationales, gouvernementales et locales.
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.
Porter un harnais de sécurité quand on travaille en hauteur.
Maintenir solidement en place tous les panneaux et capots.
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.
OM-266 040 Page 7
Utiliser une protection différentielle lors de l’utilisation d’un équipement auxiliaire. Ne pas tester ni réarmer les prises femelles avec
différentiel au régime de ralenti/en basse tension: cela endommagerait le disjoncteur différentiel, qui ne remplirait plus son rôle
de protection contre une électrocution causée par un défaut de
masse.
Il reste une TENSION DC NON NÉGLIGEABLE dans les
sources de soudage onduleur UNE FOIS le moteur coupé.
Couper l’alimentation du poste et décharger les condensateurs
d’entrée comme indiqué dans la Section Maintenance avant de
toucher des composants.
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 auxquels 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-266 040 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
votre casque.
Avoir recours à des écrans protecteurs ou à des rideaux pour
protéger les autres contre les rayonnements les éblouissements
et les étincelles ; prévenir toute personne sur les lieux de ne pas
regarder l’arc.
Porter un équipement de protection pour le corps fait d’un matériau
résistant et ignifuge (cuir, coton robuste, laine). La protection du
corps comporte des vêtements sans huile comme par ex. des
gants de cuir, une chemise solide, des pantalons sans revers, des
chaussures hautes et une casquette.
LE SOUDAGE peut provoquer un
incendie ou une explosion.
Le soudage effectué sur des conteneurs fermés tels
que des réservoirs, tambours ou des conduites peut
provoquer leur éclatement. Des étincelles peuvent
être projetées de l’arc de soudure. La projection d’étincelles, des
pièces chaudes et des équipements chauds peut provoquer des
incendies et des brûlures. Le contact accidentel de l’électrode avec
des objets métalliques peut provoquer des étincelles, une explosion,
un surchauffement ou un incendie. Avant de commencer le soudage,
vérifier et s’assurer que l’endroit ne présente pas de danger.
Déplacer toutes les substances inflammables à une distance de
10,7 m de l’arc de soudage. En cas d’impossibilité les recouvrir
soigneusement avec des protections homologués.
Ne pas souder dans un endroit là où des étincelles peuvent tomber
sur des substances inflammables.
Se protéger et d’autres personnes de la projection d’étincelles et
de métal chaud.
Des étincelles et des matériaux chauds du soudage peuvent
facilement passer dans d’autres zones en traversant de petites
fissures et des ouvertures.
Surveiller tout déclenchement d’incendie et tenir un extincteur à
proximité.
Le soudage effectué sur un plafond, plancher, paroi ou séparation
peut déclencher un incendie de l’autre côté.
Ne pas effectuer le soudage sur des conteneurs fermés tels que
des réservoirs, tambours, ou conduites, à moins qu ils n aient
été préparés correctement conformément à AWS F4.1 et AWS
A6.0 (voir les Normes de Sécurité).
Ne soudez pas si l’air ambiant est chargé de particules, gaz, ou vapeurs inflammables (vapeur d’essence, par exemple).
Brancher le câble de masse sur la pièce le plus près possible de la
zone de soudage pour éviter le transport du courant sur une
longue distance par des chemins inconnus éventuels en provoquant des risques d’électrocution, d’étincelles et d’incendie.
Ne pas utiliser le poste de soudage pour dégeler des conduites gelées.
En cas de non utilisation, enlever la baguette d’électrode du porteélectrode ou couper le fil à la pointe de contact.
Porter un équipement de protection pour le corps fait d’un matériau
résistant et ignifuge (cuir, coton robuste, laine). La protection du
corps comporte des vêtements sans huile comme par ex. des
gants de cuir, une chemise solide, des pantalons sans revers, des
chaussures hautes et une casquette.
Avant de souder, retirer toute substance combustible de vos poches telles qu’un allumeur au butane ou des allumettes.
Une fois le travail achevé, assurez−vous qu’il ne reste aucune trace d’étincelles incandescentes ni de flammes.
Utiliser exclusivement des fusibles ou coupe−circuits appropriés.
Ne pas augmenter leur puissance; ne pas les ponter.
Suivre les recommandations dans OSHA 1910.252(a)(2)(iv) et
NFPA 51B pour les travaux à chaud et avoir de la surveillance et un
extincteur à proximité.
LE BRUIT peut affecter l’ouïe.
Le bruit des processus et des équipements peut
affecter l’ouïe.
Porter des protections approuvés pour les
oreilles si le niveau sonore est trop élevé.
Les CHAMPS ÉLECTROMAGNÉTIQUES
(CEM) peuvent affecter les implants médicaux.
Les porteurs de stimulateurs cardiaques et
autres implants médicaux doivent rester à
distance.
Les porteurs d’implants médicaux doivent consulter leur
médecin et le fabricant du dispositif avant de s’approcher de la
zone où se déroule du soudage à l’arc, du soudage par points, du
gougeage, de la découpe plasma ou une opération de chauffage
par induction.
Si des BOUTEILLES sont endommagées, elles pourront exploser.
Des bouteilles de gaz comprimé protecteur contiennent du gaz sous haute pression. Si une bouteille est
endommagée, elle peut exploser. Du fait que les
bouteilles de gaz font normalement partie du procédé de soudage, les
manipuler avec précaution.
Protéger les bouteilles de gaz comprimé d’une chaleur excessive,
des chocs mécaniques, des dommages physiques, du laitier, des
flammes ouvertes, des étincelles et des arcs.
Placer les bouteilles debout en les fixant dans un support stationnaire ou dans un porte-bouteilles pour les empêcher de tomber ou
de se renverser.
Tenir les bouteilles éloignées des circuits de soudage ou autres
circuits électriques.
Ne jamais placer une torche de soudage sur une bouteille à gaz.
Une électrode de soudage ne doit jamais entrer en contact avec
une bouteille.
Ne jamais souder une bouteille pressurisée − risque d’explosion.
Utiliser seulement des bouteilles de gaz comprimé, régulateurs,
tuyaux et raccords convenables pour cette application spécifique;
les maintenir ainsi que les éléments associés en bon état.
Tourner le dos à la sortie de vanne lors de l’ouverture de la vanne

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. 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
du ruban adhésif ou avec une housse.
2. Ne pas se tenir au milieu des câbles de soudage. Disposer les
câbles d’un côté et à distance de l’opérateur.
3. Ne pas courber et ne pas entourer les câbles autour de votre
corps.
4. Maintenir la tête et le torse aussi loin que possible du matériel du
circuit de soudage.
5. Connecter la pince sur la pièce aussi près que possible de la
soudure.
6. Ne pas travailler à proximité d’une source de soudage, ni
s’asseoir ou se pencher dessus.
7. Ne pas souder tout en portant la source de soudage ou le
dévidoir.
En ce qui concerne les implants médicaux :
Les porteurs d’implants doivent d’abord consulter leur médecin avant
de s’approcher des opérations de soudage à l’arc, de soudage par
points, de gougeage, du coupage plasma ou de chauffage par induction. Si le médecin approuve, il est recommandé de suivre les
procédures précédentes.

A maintenance interval is reached when the
wrench icon appears in the display.
Hour Meter: With engine off, place Engine
Control switch in Run/Idle position to view engine hours.
Oil Change Interval: With engine off, place Engine Control switch in the Run position to see
hours before next oil change. Oil hours start at
100 and count down to 0 (zero) (oil change
due).
Negative hours indicated when past rec-
ommended oil change interval.
To reset, cycle Engine Control switch from
Run/Idle to Run three times within five seconds (engine off).
4 Coarse Range Switch
NOTICE − Do not switch under load.
Use switch to select weld amperage range.
For best arc starts and when using weld
5
and generator power together, use a low
Coarse Range setting with the Fine control set at 7 or higher.
Fine Control
Use control to select weld amperage within the
range selected by the Coarse Range switch.
Control may be adjusted while welding.
Set control at 10 for maximum generator
power.
Weld output would be about 112 A DC based
on control settings shown (80% of 50 to 140
A). Settings shown are typical for welding with
a 7018 (1/8) electrode.
See Sections 6-3 for typical process connections and control settings.

6-2. Cold Weather Engine Operation
1
1
Infrequently
Loaded
Engine Control Switch
Carburetor Icing
Carburetor icing causes the unit to drop below the normal idle speed and then stall.
This condition occurs when the temperature is near freezing and the relative humidity is high. Ice forms on the throttle plate and inner bore of the carburetor. The
engine typically restarts without problems but soon stalls again.
Treat gasoline with a fuel de−icer product (isopropyl alcohol).
Place the Engine Control switch in the Run position.
Run engine only when expecting to frequently load it.
Breather Icing
Frequently
Loaded
Oil breather/pulse line icing occurs in severe cold (continuously below 0F). Moisture accumulates in the oil from piston ring blow−by if the engine is extensively
idled. This may cause vacuum line freezing, oil breather tube freezing or ice in the
carburetor. All of these cause operating problems. Due to ice in the lines, the engine
may not restart until it is warmed to above freezing.
Load engine and reduce idle times to prevent engine shutdowns.
Use an electric fuel pump to avoid pulse line freezing.
Install engine cold−weather kit.
Kohler (1-800-544-2444) offers a kit for cold weather operation. The user can install
the kit. The kit pulls heated air from the muffler surface into the carburetor and shuts
the cold air off. This increases engine temperature during operation in both idle and
high speed.
Ref. 236 615-A
When the ambient temperatures become warmer (above 45_F) the air flow will
have to be returned to normal.
Synthetic Oil
For temperatures below zero (0F), synthetic oil improves engine starting. After the
first 50 hours of operation with non-synthetic oil, the engine can be switched to
synethic oil.
Do not extend the 100 hour recommended oil change interval.
In severe cold, use synthetic grade 5W30 oil. See engine maintenance label for
additional information.

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).
Welding 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.

5 Second Rule
If motor does not start within 5
seconds, turn off power to prevent
motor damage. Motor requires
more power than generator can
supply.

3 Fused Disconnect Switch
Install correct switch (customersupplied) if required by electrical
code.
4 Welding 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 12-4).

SECTION 13 − STICK WELDING (SMAW) GUIDELINES
13-1. 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
13-2).

Work Clamp
Place as close to the weld as
possible.

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.

Electrode
Workpiece
Arc
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.

an arc, practice running beads
of weld metal on flat plates using
a full electrode.

End View Of Work Angle
Side View Of Electrode
Angle
Hold the electrode nearly perpendicular to the work, although
tilting it ahead (in the direction of
travel) will be helpful.

To produce the best results,
hold a short arc, travel at a
uniform speed, and feed the
electrode downward at a
constant rate as it melts.

a single stringer
bead is satisfactory for most
narrow groove weld joints;
however, for wide groove weld
joints or bridging across gaps,
a weave bead or multiple
stringer beads work better.
Stringer Bead − Steady

Weave Patterns
Use weave patterns to cover a
wide area in one pass of the electrode. Do not let weave width exceed 2-1/2 times diameter of
electrode.

13-10. 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.

(1.6 mm)
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.

13-13. 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.
Remove all grease, oil, moisture, rust, paint, coatings, slag, and dirt from work surface before
welding.
OM-266 040 Page 53
Lack Of Penetration − shallow fusion between weld metal and base metal.
Lack of Penetration
Good Penetration
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.
Increase and/or maintain steady travel speed.
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.
