Q:

Manual 93420111 Craftsman 85 amp mig welder

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I didn't see a model specific manual available for this MIG welder, but I was able to locate one within the same model series that should be very helpful for operation. I have linked it below for convenience. Just don't use the parts section for part identification as the parts could be somewhat different, but the operations and maintenance will be handy.

There is nothing else to say since I have no more information about the cause of the problem. I was hoping that someone could suggest a reason for the symptoms and maybe a way to fix it. My suspicion is that the "circuit breaker" is what is preventing striking an arc with the welder, since everything works except the arc. If that's what it is, then please confirm that there is no way to "reset" the circuit breaker and that it is an integral part of the "reactor" (which is NO LONGER AVAILABLE). In that case, the welder is now permanently broken and not fixable - or is it?

A:

Right - with advice from experts like these, why bother. Yes, the circuit breaker is buried inside the transformer (reactor) - you 'could' dig it out and re-wire it (but it would be a chore and spending a bit of time at a welder parts supply house to find a breaker). Another 'parts list' came with my unit with a reference to a 'regulator' part # 332-226-000 which is in stock at Sears Parts for about $280. BUT no picture and no reference on my diagram of what it is - perhaps that is the new name for a combo breaker/transformer or perhaps something else?? It would be nice if Sears offered the help they used to, and if Craftsman (like this unit) meant what it used to. Other option is go to Harbor Freight and get a new 170 amp unit for the same price. I blew 1 rectifier and have to buy the entire package, wonder if it is worth it...

"...with advice from experts like these, why bother [?]". My thoughts exactly, Jim. I used my Craftsman welder for many years and never had any problem with it. It seems a shame that anything is designed with a circuit breaker that will immediately turn the unit into a boat anchor if it opens. It would have been better without a circuit breaker so the wiring would burn up. Then, I would feel better about junking it. I saw Sears locally in a death spiral for a long time and I'm not surprised that they are about to disappear altogether. Customer service was the first thing to go and it has dragged the rest of the company with it. I'll buy a new welder at Northern Toll or Harbor Freight, but definitely not from Sears. And I'll give some thought and research to a unit that can be repaired if it quits.

Q:

is my lead bad? 93420111 Craftsman 85 amp mig welder

A:

If the tip is in good shape then the lead is most likely the problem. If my memory serves me correct, a worn out tip will also cause this, so do make sure to check it.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
