Flux wire welder will spark but will not weld continuously

The wire will feed through and will initially spark but immediately stops and then it will spark again. The ground is fine. What is causing this?

Clean the plate/sheet firtst then attach the earth ensure you have fitted the same size tip as the wire, check all the switches on the set that the are pointing for the conditions, If it is arc as well as TIG. there will be a little switch that you move for either TIG or stick welding .( could also give "LIFT TIG")

My lincoln mig 140 feeds the flux wire through, but it just sparks, will not weld


Make sure the ground clamp has a good connection to both the work piece and to the welder Sometimes the welder connection is overlooked.

When i weld with my wire feed it pulses what am i doing wrong


you need to ether turn up the wire speed or turn down the heat, also with a flux core you have to be very close to your work. don,t forget your mask!!

Just purchased and tried to use my flux welder. It jams before flux even comes out the handle.


have you tried adjusting the tension on the flux wire? before you start feeding the wire into it make sure there isnt any kinks in the wire. seems like it doesnt take much for it to bind up once you get start welding with it im sure you will run into this problem quite allot. usually its from welding the wire to the tip. i have to be honest it can ve a pain in the ***

My welder does'nt feed a constant feed motor seems to slow down and wire pushes my hand away when hitting metal.


If wire pushes your hand away when welding you need to do one of the following:
Reduce your wire speed, or increase the voltage.

I have a century powermate 70 mig welder and using .30 fluxcore wire. the machine says that it is gasless also. the machine will not weld right. is this the right wire or what could be wrong?


Check that your ground clamp connection to the weldment is secure (tight).
you can weld with the shielding gas, or without.
by not welding right, what exactly do you mean?

I dont know what kind of metals this wire type can do, it says fire power 1440 u235 flux wire, but not sure what kinds of aluminums or steels it can weld. Im a certifed MIG aluminum welder, but this is a...


Usually a flux core only welds steel. It is a higher penetration weld than a MIG. Usually it acts similar to 6011 rods in SMA (Shielded Metal Arc) welding -- a.k.a. stick welding -- if you're familiar with that. I don't believe there is such a thing as flux wire for aluminum. There may be stainless wire for it, but I've never seen it. It probably could also be used for building up cast iron and cast steel, but nothing structural. I have a Chicago Electric one and I love it -- simple and it penetrates hard. My 90 amp will weld to 3/8" without breaking a sweat and if I baby it will go to 1/2" or better. It is difficult to go much lower than 12 or 14 gauge though due to the high penetration.

Century mig welder. The wire speed is spinning at max speed as soon as the machine is turned ON. Will only stop when machine is OFF.


My Century 225 mig has lost its power ...with adjustments to max it leaves a high weld deposit and low penertration.

What is the fix ?

Handler 140 wire jerky when welding


make sure rollers are clean and slots not wore out check alignment
do not over tighten wire feed so it smashes the wire
flux wire is hard to get a good setting
make sure if you can set it for gas welding it is not on this setting
