I bought a ez 125 on 12/27/07 and only did a couple beads to check it out after I bought it to try it out. I am a carperter and really don't have a reason to own a welder other to make up some brackets or fix a garden tractor and what not.
Well this weekend I actually had a little project to do.....long story short...I put about 35-40 minutes on it and I heard a clunck and then it didn't sound right so I stopped and got out the manual.
I thought I over heated so I let it sit, and sit ,and sit, tried the overload. Nothing.
Come to find out when I took the the outer shell off it, the fan itself had actual come off the shaft that it is supposed to be on. When I put it back on I noticed it was split so it came right back off when I started it again.....
Has anyone else had this happen?
Should I drill it and pin it so the new one don't do the same thing or will this f- up the ballance?
Where can I get the part?....I figure it's only a $5.00 part, nylon...but I don't like putting my credit card info on the web.
Another question???? Does a welder have any kind of compasitor in it that holds a charge in it after you unplug it like a TV ?
Thank for any input guys.
Funny sidenote......I forgot all about getting "sunburn" from a welder....I work outside year round so I'm nicely tanned now with a bright red chest!
