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

I have a 440v 50 amp and a 220v 30amp main breaker box outside my house. the 440 goez to the inside of the house and i have to unplug the 440 and plug in myown 440 plug i connected to another breaker box...


Some of these numbers don't make sense?
I have Never heard of 440v and 220v in a residential application, they are two different systems, 480 volt is typically 3 phase power, and 240v is typically single phase, more in likely you have a 200- 400 amp main service, and a 100- 200 amp secondary service for the welder, that can't be 110 @ 200 amps?
I would need more info, and pictures of actual nameplates of the equipment,
and then I could advise a safe NEC electrical code answer...

you could have a weak breaker or the breaker is not rated for the draw of the compressor have a pro check it out

What would be the appropiate extension cord size for a Century 70 wire welder. Need at least a 50', possibly 100'.


10/3 will give better performance and reliability.

12/3 is okay for up to about 20 feet. Marginal at best at 50 feet. Bad news at 100 feet due to voltage drop.

Lincoln mig welder 180, 230 volt 20 Amp Input. BUT! Manual says use ''Super Lag 40 amp Double Breaker, Plug on Welder Is Nema 6-50 ( 50 Amp ) Wleder cord is 12awg. What wire should be used to wire it up in...


Inspector is correct! In wall or conduit wiring awg will always be greater than "open air" wiring. IE: the size of wire coming from your pole ... it's smaller than from your service riser into your meter. Code allows the cord to heat up... open air will cool it down.
