The only things I can think of are:

  • The tension on the coil of welding wire is too tight and needs slackening off.
  • The feed rollers need cleaning and the tension adjusting.
If none of these solutions solve your problem then I can not help you any further.

    You could also try cleaning and re adjusting the electrical connection to the trigger of the welding gun.

It willnot weld

if it is just not feeding wire, check the tension on feed wheel. Make sure it turns when trigger is pressed. Also make sure you have gas with solid wire. If you have cored wire gas is not needed.

More then likely you have a shorted component (positive or hot wire to ground). Verify that the gun/trigger assembly is in good shape and has no broken wires that are touching the ground or case (may have to disassemble). Thats the easiest thing to check, everything else is inside the unit and will take more sophisticated knowledge and equipment to diagnose.

I have a Clarke Mig 130EN Fan Cooled Welder that is not feeding wire and I can't find anyone local to work on it, nor do I know where to go about finding parts. The only Clarke phone number I found...


If you are in the USA, check for your nearest welding store they will help you, Praxair has more than 1000 retail stores in the USA.
If you can make the motor to work just by by-passing the switch then your problem relies on the gun switch, that's an easy fix.

Just an advice; stop buying clarks, it is pretty defficult to obtain speare parts. Lincoln, Miller, Hobart or any other american machine are easier to find parts and are pretty good welders.

Have a clarke 125en wire feed drive wheels are not turn although it makes the same noise as it did when it worked, it just up and quit

release the tension from the WFR, pull the trigger and check the shaft that the rollers are attached is spinning if yes then the woodruff key is either missing or broken if no then the drive motor needs looking at, the shaft may have broken further along. get an electrician to check it out.

Need to know how to get my clark welder to weld aluminum model we6527

Using a Spool gun and an adaptor to your welder is better, but you need to open your wallet and spend at least 600 bucks. The modest way to go is:

1) change the gun liner to a teflon kind one instead of steel.
2) Change your drive rolls for knurled one instead of grooved.
3) oversize your contact tip for more wire feed freedom.
4) use straight argon gas.
5) use aluminum 4043 type 035 size.
And always try to maintain your gun lead as straight as you can.
Good Luck!

Clark 130en does not feed well. Feeds great on 10

try checking the tension on the feed roller,you may have too much tension which in return will not allow the wire to feed right,check to make sure your feed roller is for the size of wire you are using,next check the tip size for the wire your using.

Wire stuck in liner and can not get out

if the wire is stuck in the liner, screw the top pieces off the gun, like the contact tip and the diffuser so you can grab the wire with pliers, pull the wire out of the liner with the pliers, make sure the back of the wire is not still connected to the spool!
