    Hi there i have bought a mig welder for parts or repair with the intention of fixing it.

    it starts and feeds wire ok but it wont strike an arc. so i took a closer look at the rectifier and it seems the botom 8 diodes are burnt out / wires burnt off them.

    so my questions are.......
    1 what caused these diodes to fry will it do it again if i replace them
    2 the code on the diodes is t25 4 E9 and some are F9. can any one reccomend some replacements. I think they are the same as car alternator ones but not sure.

    thanks in advance robert
