Hello- welder question

My son plugged my 110vac Lincoln welder in to my 250A Lincoln pipeline welder and it puts out 110 vdc. A 250A Lincoln pipeline welder just puts out DC power. Yes he turned it on. What would burn it out ?

What is a pipeline? How did he connect it to the pipeline and was it turned on?

Connect a 120 volt AC device to 120 volts DC could certainly do some damage. It may have survived but chances are it did not.

Welcome to the forums.

I clarified your post. If it's incorrect.... just let me know.

What's the model of the 120v AC welder. Some have fuses in them.

The Lincoln SA-250 is the most popular mobile welder but it has AC receptacles as far as I know.
Maybe it has AC and DC receptacles ?

Plug it into a proper voltage power supply and try it.

In the manual it shows a circuit breaker somewhere on the case. Try pressing that in to reset it.
