SOURCE: Mig welder

Sometimes dirt builds up at the beginning of the liner, at the drive. Eventually the dirt jams in there so much that it gets very hard to push the wire through it. Carefully cut the wire between the spool and the drive and secure it to the spool through a hole, so it doesn't unspool into a bird nest, then disengage the drive roller, the wire should pull out of the tip freely. If you feel resistance when you pull it out, either there is dirt at the beginning of the liner, or the contact tip is causing resistance. Without the wire in the drive, turn on the machine and try it watching the drive. Does the drive work freely now? Does it change speed with the rheostat? If its a problem with dirt, this is what I do, after you get the wire threaded back through the drive, liner and contact tip, and everything is working, take a small clean cotton rag and simply tie it around the migwire between the spool and the drive, in a way that the drive can't **** it in. This will constantly clean any dust/dirt off the wire before it goes through your expensive drive and liner. Whenever you change the spool, change the rag. Hope this helps, and please post your results.

SOURCE: hobart handler 140 will not feed wire

A schematic would certainly help, give Hobart a call and ask for a wiring diagram. or manual. Hobart are very helpful and may even give you guidance, you may have to pay the postage, they usually fax these documents so it will not cost you anything.

SOURCE: Hobart Handler 175 Wire doesn't feed when trigger operated.

First, UNPLUG the Welder! There is a small control board (2"x2") that the feed motor plugs into, it has a fuse on it. Here is what you do: Follow the circuit board trace that goes from one side of the fuse though a resistor then to the connector full of wires on the edge of the board, check that resistor for continuity it should read some value besides open. If it is open, this is your problem (as the drive motor ages it draws slightly more current than new, which should blow fuse, but instead blows the resistor). The resistor should be replaced with same resistance value, if problem persists replace again but instead of 1/4amp bump up to a 3/4amp for $1 or replace that drive motor for $150, you choose. Good Luck!

NOTE: As with any circuit board, take precautions to prevent ESD damage to board.

why would you need to go to the lowest setting?. anyway look at the feed rollers, make sure they are the correct size for the wire, secondly check the clutch mechanism on the wire mounting centre post this might be too tight, thirdly check the linner this could be crimped.
If the set works ok on number 2 it should be ok on 1, perform the set up again, ensure the rollers are not tightend down on the wire.
lets now if the problem clears,

Hobart handler 125 wire feed gears broken teeth. Have three teeth broken on plastic gear. Can I get replacement gears?


You are probably going to have to replace the complete assembly, and it is probably going to cost about $150. I would contact Hobart by phone with your serial #, and they should have the correct part# , since there is no parts list in your manual, and none seem to be available on line. BRwelders has part# 210010 listed but may not be correct, since it is for the 120.

I have a hobart handler 150, i have it run through a 50 amp plugg in and breaker dont know if thats right because it wont weld the wire burns up to fast what should i do?


Try increasing the feed rate. Decrease voltage also. If still no luck, try checking the wire diameter. If you are using flux core wire, make sure the wire isn't too old and it hasn't been exposed to moisture. If you are using gas, make sure that the gas regulator is working properly. If so, then try getting closer to your work with the nozzle. Distance from your workpiece and wind can interrupt the gas shield, causing the wire to burn unshielded.

Hobart handler 140 mig welder gas wont shut off


Looking at the Hobart manuals, that is how they set them up at the factory.

One way to make a change to that is to wire in a solid state relay or solid state Triac and pick up an energizing voltage off of location RC2-1 or RC2-2 on the control board when the trigger is pressed, or as an alternate location from the feed motor through a resistor and rectifier. Once you know if the voltage goes low, or voltage goes high at your point of signal, you pick the contact you want on the relay so when the wire is feeding out, the gas is flowing. and when it is not feeding wire out, the gas is shut off.

Hobart handler 135, the wire starts to feed for about 15 seconds then slows and stops.


Hi:
Don't know how old is your unit but my guess is that your gun's liner is the problem. Have you change it lately? If not, change it. Does your machine just stops feeding the wire or does it shuts down? If it just stop then; is the liner, if it shuts down; then you have a pc board problem.

I have an hobart welder-handler 150, when the welder is set to the lowest setting 1 the wire will not feed through, the motor is running but not feeding. When the setting is on 2 or higher it works fine


why would you need to go to the lowest setting?. anyway look at the feed rollers, make sure they are the correct size for the wire, secondly check the clutch mechanism on the wire mounting centre post this might be too tight, thirdly check the linner this could be crimped.
If the set works ok on number 2 it should be ok on 1, perform the set up again, ensure the rollers are not tightend down on the wire.

Wire feeds too quickly


Some welders control wire speed with the amps control, some control amps with the wire speed control. You might try turning things up until it runs smoothly without pushing back. If you're new at welding, it does take some practice until it feels right.

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.
