Re: Please HELP with Chicago Electric 151 dual MIG welder
I have the exact same welder. Any 220 outlet will power it. Just get the proper male end to attach to your cord. The switches: 1-low = lowest amp setting 2-high = highest amp setting. Spool.....uses 2 lbs spools. Unscrew the metal nut, slide spool on...unclamp wire tensioner and thread wire in. Clamp tensioner back down. Stretch out torch as straight as you can and pull the trigger. Wire sould feet all the way to you. Keep an eye on the spool so you don't crimp and break the wire as your feeding it. Once it's at the torch, set wire feed speed (dial that goes from 1-10) and start welding.
