Thread: cool down/duty cycle

  1. Default cool down/duty cycle

    I couldn't find it in manual but when I want my power pro 205 to cool do I just stop welding? And leave fan running. Or should I turn amps all the way down or I'd hate to just shut off cause the fan shuts off. Thanks for any and all help!

    Hey, Ogre, welcome!

    Stop welding and let the machine continue running for 10 minutes or so. That way the fan continues running, as you pointed out. During the shutdown cool off I clean up and put gear away.

    What kind of projects are you working on?

    DaveO has a good point it will help the machine cool down. The manual has the information on what you need.

    If I let my machine run to cool down I try not to make dust around the machine, if I can not I will shut it off then sweep up.

    TIG fingers are great. Only problem I have is misplacing it. I keep mine in the MIG consumable box now. Maybe I should slip it on the torch nozzle when I finish. Easy to find then. But they really come in handy with aluminum welding, no joke.
