You need to purchase new tips. They go bad after awhile. They're made of copper, and are quite soft. Simply remove the nozzle (piece covering the tip)by unscrewing it, then get a good set of pliers on the tip to unscrew it. When screwing the new tip in, be sure to only finger tighten it, if you put too much force on it with pliers and what not, you can damage the softmetal, and end up with the same problem.

    Also, be sure to buy the correct size tips for the gauge of wire you'll be using! that may be your problem as it is!

My welder won't feed wire it sounds like it's trying to energize but can't. A couple of times it fed through but wouldn't feed to weld so I had stick weld. What happens if the liner has a restriction?


first unscrew the tiny tip at very end of torch (can be hot)!! then try to feed wire thru handle,gently shake cable as you do helps to feed wire thru cable , if successful you have allowed the amps to get too high for the feed rate (slow) and melted the tip closed , these tips are replaceable from miller and are not expensive

MIG welder 250 feeding wire at erratic speeds


Gun trigger contacts or switch circuit is closing somewhere (shorting). Unplug connector and jump the two terminals if it works and will weld disconnect jumper if problem persists it is not in the gun or cable hose. Keep chasing it far as possible without taking bolts or screws out of machine unless you know what that stuff inside will do to you, pretty sure the problem is not in there anyway.

Mig gas conversion for JobSmart 125 Flux Wire Welder


The other difference between gas/gasless is the ability to reverse the gun polarity which you can't do with a gasless only welder. You can get it to work but not safely and reliability could be an issue also.

Lincon mig stops feeding wire


Been welding for a while, open side, check for proper tension on the feed wheel inside side panel, hit the trigger, if feed motor continues to spin tensioner needs tightened or mig wire may be getting hung up inside main cable lead. If motor is off on off on then its probbably the switch on the trigger getting a bad good connection, hope this helps o and check welding tip on gun end, may need replaced if worn or melted, unscrews.

Wire is broken off inside wire feed tube and wont pull through tube either


Hi:

You need to replace the gun's liner. To avoid this problem you must decrease the voltage or increase your wire speed.
A new liner will cost you around 20 buck at your nearest Praxair welding store.

If this was useful to you please vote. Thanks

Seised wire inside feeding tube


You can replace the liner by removing the shroud tip, and pulling the spring (liner) from the machine end of the trifgger cable.
Liners are replaceable.

Mig replace tip


Pull off the extreme outer nozzle of the MIG gun. Clean the inside of this nozzle with MIG pliers or round wire brush. Unscrew the welding tip. (If it is stuck, try using a pair of pliers lightly). Clean the entire area with a regular wire brush. Screw on the new tip finger tight, but snug. Replace the outer nozzle.
