DESCRIPTION OF OPERATION
This description of operation describes the function of circuit boards and other components
in the power unit. It is divided into sections, numbered to correspond to the circuit board
numbers and divisions into function blocks.
AP1 Control board (for C420w/C420)
Note: AP1 – 0486 205 882 only for machines manufactured till May 2003
Note: AP1 – 0486 205 886 only for machines manufactured after May 2003
AP1:1 Power supply
The wire feed unit receives 42 V from the control power supply transformer in
the welding power unit via relay contact on AP3.
42 V AC is supplied to the welding gun trigger switch, the gas valve and the
contactor.
DC power supplies
Diodes D30 – D33 rectify the 42 V supply to 60 V. Capacitor C61 smooths the
supply, which is then used to power the wire feeder motor.
Transistor Q2 is a pre–regulator that drops the voltage from 60 V to 20 V. Q2 is
current–limited to about 200 mA.
VR1 and VR2 are voltage regulators, producing 5 V and 15 V respectively. The
circuit board’s microprocessor monitors the voltages. If the 15 V supply falls
below 13 V, the wire feed unit is stopped.
AP1:2 Activation, contactor
The start signal is connected to contactor KM1.
doce1
– 12 –
Edition 030410
AP1:3 Activation, gas valve
The gas valve is connected to connectors F04 and F05.
AP1:4 2–stroke / 4–stroke
2–stroke
When switch SP2 is open, 2–stroke control mode is selected. This means that
closing the welding gun trigger switch starts the wire feed motor, opens the gas
valve and closes the power unit contactor.
Releasing the switch stops the motor, releases the contactor and closes the
gas valve. If burn–back time is operative, welding ceases after the burn–back
time has elapsed.
4–stroke
When switch SP21 is closed, 4–stroke control mode is selected. This means
that first closure of the trigger switch operates the gas valve, with the wire feed
motor starting, and the power unit contactor operating, when the trigger switch
is released.
Closing the trigger switch for the second time stops the motor and
de–energises the contactor in the power unit. Releasing the switch closes the
gas valve. If burn–back time is operative, welding ceases after the burn–back
time has elapsed.

Edition 030410
AP1:5 Burn–back time
The burn–back time is the time from when motor braking starts until the
machine contactor opens. It can be adjusted by potentiometer RP2 between 0
and 0.5 seconds.
AP1:6 Wire feed speed
Potentiometer RP1 controls the wire feed speed over a range from 1.9 to 25
metres/minute.

AP1:7 Motor driving / braking
Driving
The motor is powered by the smoothed +60 V supply. Pulse width modulation,
controlled by transistor Q3, is used to vary the motor voltage. The pulse
frequency is 12 kHz, and the maximum conducting time of the pulses is 97% of
the pulse cycle time. Freewheeling diode D11 maintains motor current during
the pulse breaks.
At a drive roller speed of 266 r/min, the wire feed speed is 25 m/min.
The voltage drop across resistor R92 provides a signal that is proportional to
the motor current. When the current exceeds 15.4 A, IC6:2 turns off the gate
pulse to Q3. When the current drops, Q3 conducts again at the next gate
pulse.
Braking
When the motor starts, capacitor C60 charges up to 15 V, with zener diode
D20 limiting the voltage across it. Braking is activated by the optocoupler IC3.
When the transistor in IC3 is turned on by the LED, 15 V from capacitor C60 is
connected to the gate of transistor Q4. Transistor Q4 turns on and short
circuits the motor through the resistors R85–R87 (AP1 – 0486 205 886). The
resistors limit the braking current to about 20 A.
NB: On AP1 – 0486 205 882 only R86 & R86 are installed.

AP1:8 Tachometer input
The tachometer G1 is fitted inside the motor casing. Comparator IC5;2
converts the sine wave signal from the tachogenerator to a square wave at the
same frequency.
AP1:9 Creep start, Current relay
Creep start
The creep start function is activated when switch SP1 is:
S
open (AP1 – 0486 205 886)
S
closed (AP1 – 0486 205 882)
Creep start means that the motor runs at a speed of 1.9 m/minute until the
current relay is activated. When the relay operates, the speed increases to the
set speed. If the current relay has not operated within one second after
starting, the motor increases to the set speed.
Current relay
The current relay operates if the welding current exceeds 20 A.
doce1

Edition 030410
AP1:10 Start / Stop
The trigger switch in the welding gun is supplied at 42 V AC. Closing the switch
energises optocoupler IC10, pulling down the voltage across C46.
AP1:11 Processor
The processor stores the machine program. It monitors the power supply
voltages: if the voltages drop to too low a level, wire feed is stopped, as
described in section AP1:1 above.
The processor also monitors speed. If the wire speed deviates from the set
value by more than 1.5 m/min for more than five seconds, wire feed will be
stopped.

AP2 Digital instrument (option for C420w/C420)
AP2:1 Calibration and voltage correction
The meter has a possibility of the voltage and current calibration, as well as a
possibility of the current–dependant voltage correction, to show a voltage
approximately equal to the actual arc voltage.
Since all meters are factory calibrated it is recommended to carry out a second
calibration only if it’s needed. In most applications a zero voltage correction
(no correction) is factory adjusted.
For the calibration an accurate reference meter and a resistance load are
required. The resistance load should force at least 100A current flow.
For calibration following actions should be done:
1
Switch the machine on and load it. The meter should indicate voltage and
current presence.
2
Press simultaneously both pushbuttons placed on the meter PC board. In
sequence, symbols of the calibration modes appear: ”U” – voltage calibration,
”I” – current calibration, ”dU” – voltage correction. Release the buttons as the
required mode appears.
3
Adjust the voltage or the current value equal to the value shown by the
reference meter by means of the pushbuttons: S1 – ”+”, S2 – ”–”.
Voltage calibration mode
The reference meter should be connected to the same potentials as a
calibrated meter. Exclusively in this mode a voltage without correction is shown
on display.
Voltage reduction mode
The reference meter should be connected to the end of mass cable and to the
torch current tip, which are connected to the external load. In this mode, as
well as during the regular work, the meter shows a voltage taking in account
voltage drops on cables and welding torch. An adjustment of the voltage
correction should be carried out only in assumption of the proper voltage
calibration and in the presence of load current above 100A.

AP1 (0349 303 176), AP2 (0349 303 193) control boards
(for C420s/C420sw)
AP1:1 Power suply
The circuit board uses one supply voltage: 42VAC ( rectified by the bridge V2)
for power supply to the motor and control circuitry.
+60VS power supply from diode V1 through R1A, R1 – is regulated to 15V by
voltage regulator A1
+60VS from V1 through R3, V3A, R4 is regulated to +5V by voltage regulator
A2,
+15V is used for supplying of the motor control electronic
+5V – supplies microprocessor control circuits
+60V/+60VS power supply
+60V – is used for motor control
+60VS – is used for energizing of some input control circuits (see next
sections)
These voltages may vary (with load/mains voltage deviation) – from –15% to
+10%.
+26V (intermediate voltage for A2) – also supplies the relays K1 and K2 (on
the pcb)
AP1:2 Start / stop
Closing contact on the welding torch starts the welding process – or only
motor M2 (motor test/inching/) – depending on control mode selection (see –
section 7)
NOTE: When the machine is turned–on while the torch trigger is depressed –
operation of the machine is disabled ( LED ”17” on the front control panel
emits red light).
doce1

Edition 030410
AP1:3 Welding current detection
Signal from current relay is used for detection of welding current presence –
after closing of the torch trigger.
AP1:4 Welding parameter setting
NOTE: 1.In the AP1 diagrams in the next sections – there are shown electronic
reference potentials GNDCA and GND (not marked); they are both
galvanically connected and accessible at test point TP1.
NOTE: Device numbers ”xx” refer to the chapter: ”OPERATION / Connections
and control devices”.
A. Wire feed speed / creep start
The wire speed setting range is 1,6 to 25 meter/minute. Speed value is set by
the potentiometer RP4 (”12”) in the front control panel ( in ”standard control
mode”, see sec. 9A) or by the programm stored in the microprocessor
(”synergy control mode”).
The upper limit of the speed reference signal may be adjusted by trim–pot.
R51A : 4.9V at TP5 (refered to TP1 – when RP4 max – in ”standard mode”)
corresponds to 25m/min.
Additional speed reference adjustment is performed by the trim potentiometer
R53, it allows to shift upwards the whole speed range within 0 – 0,5m/min – so
as to correct especially the minimum speed of wire (Note: this correction is not
shown on speed reference display ”14”).
Calibration of the actual motor speed (i.e. matching the speed reference
signal) is carried out by the trim potentiometer R7 on the pcb (it may be
necessary only when wire feed motor is changed).
doce1
– 23 –
Edition 030410
There is built–in ”creep speed” function in the program (ca 60% of work speed,
but not less than 1,2m/min), i.e. welding starts with reduced wire speed and
when welding current relay picks–up (see, sec.3), the speed rise up to the
value pre–set with RP4. Independently of the current relay, after ca 0,77 sec.
the speed increases automatically to the work speed.
V–REF voltage is the analog reference signal for motor speed control circuit,
the digital reference speed is displayed on the front control panel (display ”14”,
lower row with selected ”m/min”).
In ”standard control mode” (Synergy = OFF with switch ”21” in wire feeder
compartment) welder may set the wire speed in full range with the
potentiometer RP4. When ”synergy control mode” is active (switch ”21” in any
position but OFF) signal from RP4 serves only as correcting value within
+/–20% of preset in microprocessor program speed value.
Note: That correction is counted from the middle point of RP4.
B. Spot welding setting
Turning right the potentiometer with switch RP3 in the front panel (”13”) welder
may select the function ”spot welding”, i.e. time controled welding process.
RP3 allows to adjust the process duration within 0.5 – 4.5 sec.
Normal welding is selected – when RP3 is set in the utmost left position.
AP1:5 Motor driving / braking
Driving
The motor is powered by the smoothed +60 V supply. Pulse width modulation
on transistor V8 controls the motor voltage. The pulse frequency is about 16
kHz, and maximum conduction time of the pulses is about 95% of the pulse
cycle time. During the off parts of the pulse cycle, the motor current freewheels
through diode V10.
doce1
– 24 –
Edition 030410
At 42V motor supply voltage, the wire feed roller speed is 258 r/min +/–5%. At
a roller speed of 265r/min, the wire feed speed is 25 m/min.
Speed control
The gate pulses for transistor V8 are generated by a PWM circuit, which
compares speed reference from microprocessor electronic with signal
proportional to the motor voltage (R10, R24).
Current limit
The current limit is set at 13 A. The motor current is measured by resistor R32
which produces a voltage drop proportional to the current (1A = 33mV).
The current limit restricts the conduction time of the gate pulses to transistor
V8.
Compensation of motor I x R voltage
Current signal allows to compensate voltage drop on motor armature
resistance so as to improve wire transportation at low speed settings
(Compensation is adjusted via trim potentiometer R9B, recommended setting
is 60 – 80 % of the pot.range).
Braking
Motor braking is activated by the turning on the V9 transistor; braking curent
flows thru R29A,R29B,R30, and its maximum value is limited to ca 18A.
AP1:6 Burnback time, contactor, gas valve
Burnback time
The burnback time is the time from when motor braking starts until the main
contactor opens. The burnback time can be adjusted from 0 to 0,35 seconds
with potentiometer R47on the pcb (signal to the microprocessor). R47 is
located in the auxilary control panel inside wire feed compartment (pos. ”23”).
Activation, contactor and gas valve
Contactor KM1 is switched on by the relay K1, which is controlled by transistor
V14.
Gas valve YV1 is controlled by V12 and K2. Valve YV1 opens in advance to
the contactor (gas preflow time – 0.27sec) and closes with delay (gas postflow
time – 0.4sec)

Edition 030410
AP1:7 2–stroke / motor test (inching) / 4–stroke
With switch S1 on AP1 in the motor compartment (item ”24”), welder may
select the following control modes:
2–stroke
When the switch on welding gun is pressed, welding process starts (wire feed
motor, gas valve and power unit contactor are active). When switch on welding
is released, welding process stops (motor is immediately inactive, contactor is
inactive when burnback time is elapsed and gas valve is inactive with delay of
the postflow time ).
Motor test (inching)
When the switch on welding gun is pressed, only wire feed motor starts, gas
valve and contactor remain inactive.
4–stroke
When the switch on welding gun is pressed 1st time, only gas valve is turned
on, after releasing the switch welding process starts (motor and contactor are
active). Pressing the switch again stops the motor and deactivates the
contactor (after burnback time); opening the switch cuts–off the gas flow.
AP1:8, AP2:1 Measuring and displaying of welding parameters
NOTE: All circuits of the U/I measurment part of the AP1 are galvanically
isolated from other circuits on AP1, hence the reference potentials: GNDB (test
point TP7) connected with welding power circuit, and GND/GNDCA (test point
TP1) MUST be kept separated!
U/I measurement inputs

FU* – frequency is 6,4 kHz for – 40V input (adj. by R97)
S
FI* – frequency is 6,4 kHz for +60mV / 400A / input (adj. by R88)
NOTE: signals on TP7 and TP8 are referred to TP6!
Parameters displaying and display mode selection
ESABMig C420s/C420sw is equipped with 2–row display, located on AP2,
which includes 2 selectors for choosing of displayed parameters (items
”14”,”15”,”16”)
With SV1 (switch ”15”) [V] or [A] display is selected (open contact
correspondents to [A]).
With SV2 (switch ”16”) recommended thickness of welded material [mm] or
reference wire speed [m/min] is selected for displaying (open contact
corresponds to [m/min]).

AP1:9 Synergy control presets and indications
Synergy ON/OFF and material / gas selection
10–position selector S2 on AP1 (item ”21” in wire feeder compartment) serves
for selection of control mode:
1st position,”STANDARD control mode”, i.e. SYNERGY is OFF”
remaining positions correspond to ”SYNERGY control mode”, for presetting of
different sets of electrode material and shield gases
NOTE: S2 output is BCD–coded
Wire diameter presetting
Presetting of wire electrode diameter is performed with the potentiometer R61
on AP1 (item ”22” in feeder compartment).
Welding voltage selection
Welder may select required value of welding voltage with switch QF2 (coarse
setting) and QF3 (fine setting). Each position of the voltage selectors is
identified by microprocessor so as to determine optimum welding parameter.
In ”standard control mode”, there are no restrictions for voltage selection, i.e. it
is possible to weld with any selected parameters (see NOTE1 below).
In ”synergy control mode”, depending on the preset wire diameter and
material/gas, operation is enabled only for optimum values of voltage (LED
”17” in the front panel lights green and all indications are active, otherwise ”17”
is red, other indications are inactive and operation is disabled).
NOTE1: Independently on the selected control mode, operation of the machine
is disabled (LED ”17” in red) in following cases:
doce1
S
any of the selectors QF2, QF3 is operated during welding process
S
mains voltage deviation from 400V is more then +/– 15%

NOTE2: In above diagram are shown contacts of the selectors QF2 and QF3
for 400V machine version,for another machine versions, contact designation
may differ from those above! (refer to the relevant wiring diagrams in order to
identify actual connection).
Indication of synergy control status
Depending on parameter presets made by welder (voltage, material/gas, wire
diameter), microprocessor determines and displays necessary data and
signals.
When the combination of the presets is incorrect or prohibited, red LED H4
(”17”) warns the operator and all control function are disabled. (See also –
NOTE in section 2 and NOTE1 in section 9C)
When all presets are optimal (correct), green LED H4 (”17”) informs that
welding is enabled.
When welding functions are enabled, there are displayed expected welding
parameters (see section 8B) and also relevant green LED H5, H6 or H7 (”18”)
indicates recommended inductance output for the return cable (Lmin, Lmed;
Lmax).

inputs: 60V dc
S
ouputs: relays 16A/250V + indicating LED diodes.
AP3:1 Start
When switched on, indicating lamps are tested for 2 seconds. Normally, if the
machine is not overheated, it should start to work in idle mode, which is
indicated by blinking of the supply–ON lamp. The fan and the coolant pump
are stopped.The fan starts from the first start of welding. The coolant pump
starts at the same moment, if it is switched on by means of the ELP switch
located on the water outlet to the welding gun.
AP3:2 Overheating protection
The power source includes 2–step control of the fan speed and overheating
protection. If temperature crosses the threshold point, the fan starts to operate
with increased speed. If the internal temperature becomes too high, the supply
of the PCB – AP1 is cut–off – disabling operation of the machine. This state is
indicated by permanent lighting of the orange indicating lamp on the front of
the unit. AP1 supply restores automatically when the temperature falls down.
The thermal overload cutout ST1 is fitted in the inductor winding L1, it opens at
temperature of 120 oC. ST2 is located on the heatsink of the V1 rectifier and
opens at 120 oC. NC–contacts of the ST1 and ST2 are connected in series –
activating thermal overload alarm. Thermal switch ST3 is also located in the L1
winding, its NO–contact at 80 oC turns–over the fan speed.

AP3:3 Water connection
The ESABMig C420w has a sensor ELP, ESAB Logic Pump, which senses
whether the water hoses of the welding gun are connected. When a
water–cooled welding gun is connected, the water pump is activated by means
of control board AP3.
AP3:4 Water flow guard (ESABMig C420w – optionally)
The water flow guard interrupts and disables the welding in the event of loss of
coolant. This state is indicated by blinking of the orange indicating lamp on the
front of the power source. If there is a lack a coolant flow, after 1 min the pump
is switched off and latched in this state. The pump restarts from this state
along with starting of welding.
AP3:5 Idle mode
When long inactivity of the machine – the control board AP3 turns the machine
to the idle mode. The fun is switched off 5 min after the last welding or after 5
min of work with decreased speed without welding. The pump is switched off 3
min after the last welding. When both fan and pump are switched off the
power–supply lamp on the front panel is blinking.

SERVICE INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING !
STATIC ELECTRICITY can damage circuit
boards and electronic components.
ESD
S
Observe precautions for handling electrostatic
sensitive devices.
S
Use proper static–proof bags and boxes.
What is ESD?
A sudden transfer or discharge of static electricity from one object to another. ESD stands for
Electrostatic Discharge.
How does ESD damage occur?
ESD can cause damage to sensitive electrical components, but is not dangerous to people.
ESD damage occurs when an ungrounded person or object with a static charge comes into
contact with a component or assembly that is grounded. A rapid discharge can occur,
causing damage. This damage can take the form of immediate failure, but it is more likely
that system performance will be affected and the component will fail prematurely.
How do we prevent ESD damage?
ESD damage can be prevented by awareness. If static electricity is prevented from building
up on you or on anything at your work station, then there cannot be any static discharges.
Nonconductive materials (e.g. fabrics), or insulators (e.g. plastics) generate and hold static
charge, so you should not bring unnecessary nonconductive items into the work area.
It is obviously difficult to avoid all such items, so various means are used to drain off any
static discharge from persons to prevent the risk of ESD damage. This is done by simple
devices: wrist straps, connected to ground, and conductive shoes.
Work surfaces, carts and containers must be conductive and grounded, use only antistatic
packaging materials. Overall, handling of ESD–sensitive devices should be minimized to
prevent damage.

To check that the feed pressure is set correctly, you can feed out the wire against an
insulated object, e.g. a piece of wood.
When you hold the welding gun approx. 5 mm from the piece of wood (fig. 1) the feed
rollers should slip. If you hold the welding gun approx. 50 mm from the piece of wood, the
wire should be fed out and bend (fig. 2).
FUNCTIONS EXPLANATION
Start
When switched on, indicating lamps [4,5] are on for 2 seconds. Normally, if the
machine is not overheated, it should start to work in idle mode, which is indicated by
blinking of the supply ON lamp. The fan and the coolant pump are stopped. The fan
starts at the first start of welding. The coolant pump starts at the same moment, if it
is switched on with ELP switch on the water outlet [7].
Overheating protection
The power source has 2–step control of fan speed and overheating protection.
If temperature crosses the threshold point, the fan starts to run with increased
speed. If the internal temperature becomes too high, the welding is interrupted and
disabled. This state is indicated by permanent lighting of the orange indicating lamp
on the front of the unit. It resets automatically when the temperature falls down.
Water connection
The ESABMig C420w/C420sw have a sensor ELP, ESAB Logic Pump, which senses
whether the water hoses of the welding gun are connected. When a water cooled
welding gun is connected, the water pump is active.
It is recommended to switch the power source off by means of the mains switch
ON/OFF [1] for connecting the cooling water hoses to/from the ESABMig
C420sw/C420w.

Edition 030410
Water flow guard
The machines with cooling unit (C420w/C420sw) can be fitted with a water flow
guard (option – see page NO TAG).
The water flow guard interrupts and disables the welding in event of loss of coolant.
This state is indicated by blinking of the orange indicating lamp on the front of the
power source. If there is a lack a coolant flow, after 1 min the pump is switched off
and latched in this state. The pump restarts from that state along with start of
welding.
Idle mode
The machine has an idle mode. The fan is switched off 5 min after the end of the last
welding, or after 5 min of work with decreased speed without welding. The pump is
switched off 3 min after the last welding. When both fan and pump are switched off
the power supply lamp [4] on the front panel is blinking.
ESABMig C420w/C420
The ESABMig C420w/420 is equipped with standard control unit. Welder can
manually select and adjust all welding parameters.
Wire speed (1,9 – 25m/min) is set with knob [12].
The stroke control (2/4 stroke) is selected with switch [13].
Creep start i.e. start with 50% wire speed is toggled ON/OFF with switch [14].
Burn back time is set with knob [15].
The machines C420w/C400 can be fitted with a digital instrument that displays
current and voltage. It incorporates a hold function.
ESABMig C420sw/C420s
ESABMig C420sw/420s control unit enables two ways of welding control:
S
the standard control (welder can manually select and adjust all welding
parameters) – switch “SYNERGY” [19] set to OFF
S
the synergy control (partly preprogrammed welding parameters) – switch
“SYNERGY” [19] set to any material/gas group
The stroke control (2/4 stroke) or motor inching (only wire feed motor is activated)
is selected with switch [22].
Burn back time is adjusted with knob [21].
Spot welding (turning on and time setting 0,5 – 4s) is activated with knob [13].
For machines C420sw/C420s digital instrument is included as standard.

Standard control mode
When standard control mode is selected lamps [17, 18] are off and only a lower row
of digital display [14] shows wire speed reference (selector [16] shall be in position
”m/min”).
Operator selects the required voltage [2, 3] and he may set wire speed wthin full
range (1,6 – 25m/min) with knob [12].
During welding process the upper row of display shows actual welding voltage or
current, depending on selection with switch [15]. When welding process is stopped,
displayed values are ”frozen” (dimmed display).
Synergy control mode
In synergy control mode, the operator first has to preselect material/gas [19] and
wire diameter [20].
While changing the voltage (with the voltage selectors [2,3]) digital instrument [14]
and lamps [17,18] on the front panel show welding parameters.
Synergy status lamp [17] is green (only in synergy mode) when correct welding
parameters are set, or red when incorrect or not allowed welding parameters are set
(then machine operation is disabled!).
Note: Lamp is also red (in all control modes):
S
if during welding (gun trigger pressed) – any voltage selector [2, 3]
is operated, then the operation of the machine is disabled immediately until
the trigger is released,
S when the gun trigger is pressed while turning on the machine with switch [1].
One of the lamps [18] points at recommended current outlet (–) with appropriate
inductance [9,10,11].
Digital display [14] shows values depending on display selectors [15, 16]
and machine status.
Before welding start: the upper display shows expected values of welding current [A]
or voltage [V] (both only in SYNERGY mode); the lower display shows wire speed
reference [m/min] or recommended maximum thickness [mm] of workpiece.
During welding: upper display shows actual welding voltage or current, the lower
display – as above.
After welding stop: the upper display shows last memorised (HOLD) values of
voltage or current (dimmed display).
Wire speed is set by program (stored in the microprocessor) and the knob [12] shall
be set to middle position ”0”. If necessary the operator may correct the preset speed
reference with that knob within +/– 20% of the set value.

MAINTENANCE
Regular maintenance is important for safe, reliable operation.
Maintenance must be executed by a professional.
Only those persons who have appropriate electrical knowledge (authorised
personnel) may remove the safety plates.
Note!
All guarantee undertakings from the supplier cease to apply if the customer himself
attempts any work in the product during the guarantee period in order to rectify any faults.
Inspection and cleaning
Check regularly that the power source is free from dirt.
The power source should be regularly blown clean using dry compressed air at reduced
pressure. More frequently in dirty environments.
Otherwise the air inlet/outlet may become blocked and cause overheating. To avoid
this you can use an airfilter.
The brake hub
The hub is adjusted when delivered, if
readjustment is required, follow the instructions
below. Adjust the brake hub so that wire is slightly
slack when wire feed stops.
Welding gun
S
Cleaning and replacement of the welding gun’s wear parts should take place at
regular intervals in order to achieve trouble–free wire feed. Blow the wire guide
clean regularly and clean the contact tip.
Wire feed unit
Check regularly that the wire feed unit is not clogged with dirt.
S
Cleaning and replacement of the wire feed unit mechanism’s worn parts should
take place at regular intervals in order to achieve trouble–free wire feed. Note
that if pre–tensioning is set too hard, this can result in abnormal wear on the
pressure roller, feed roller and wire guide.
