The element on my welder is not working
Q. Why does the element on the welder keep burning out?
A. There are several ways an element can burn out.
1. If there is moisture in the line due to the filter not working properly or having no filter at all, the element will burn out. The minute the cold moisture touches, the element could burn out.
2. If you drop or bang the barrel, even once, you may crack the ceramic element.
3. If you turn the electricity on before turning the air on, the element could overheat and burn out.
