SOURCE: northern tool brand wire fed gasless welder feeds wire fan work no welding?

You need to have the ground attached to what you'll be welding on. Make sure there isn't anything on the end of your wire. Also, if your voltage is all the way down it won't do anything either. Oh, one more thing, make sure you have a contact tip on the end inside the cone. That will be the copper thing the wire goes through with a really small hole. I know some of this sounds pretty obvious but if I hadn't done these things at least once.....I wouldn't know what to look at either. I also don't know your experience level and want to cover all avenues. Hope you find it!

SOURCE: millermatic 200 won't weld

first check on the plate that tells imfo of unit ,there is what is called duty cycle.If the duty cycle says per say 30%,that means you can weld full power for 3 minuets before unit will shut down to cool.if it says 100% duty cycle there is no limit on weld time.this is the first thing to understand,if that is not the case check the main contactor where the power imput wires go,pull the gun trigger see if the contactor is pulling in , it should if not no welding amperage.

SOURCE: wire won't feed or arc fan runns

Look for a reset button on the case. Make sure that you have power to the machine and at the power socket. If everything looks ok outside, you may have to investigate your warranty. Good luck!

SOURCE: I have a hobart handler 120/90amp wire feed welder

I have welded countless hours with Linde & Lincoln & even a few Hobarts & the only time that I ever had the same problem was when the ground connection either to the object I was welding, or the welding cable ground wasn't good & clean & tight. Same on stick welders also. I did develop the habit of grinding not only where I was preparing to weld, but where I was placing my ground clamp & that always provided a better "frying bacon" sound as I went along the business of pushing a bead. In a welder, the only other thing than that is involved is the step-up transformer and your wire. Hope this helps.

I have a millermatic 175 it is new the over temp light is on . what could be wrong. and no wire feed.


You bought this brand ne from a merchant?
Take it back.
The over heat light is when you have welded too long and it shuts down to cool off; were you welding?No wire feed is too vauge; you looked at feed motor and the wheels aren't moving?

I can turn the welder on and it can run all day but when I start welding with in a minute the overheat light will come on and it will stop feading wire. I'm trying to weld on mid temperature.


Have you checked so see if your power cable is the right size?? Is it a 220 or 110? If it is 110 then it will cut off after it gets hot, if it is 220 and the power cord is too small then the machine will be trying to pull more amps than the cord can handle causing it to overheat and shut off.. My husband has been a welder for 20 years.. I'm just passing along what he suggested might be the problem.. Hope this helps!

New welder, only fed wire a couple times now it wont work


the noise you hear is the relay for the wire feed,it means that your tension on the wire needs to be set,tighten it if it is too loose and loosen it if the roller on the feed is moving but the wire is not,also,make sure the wire moves easily in the handle,always keep your cords straight so they dont bind.

My Millermatic 230v wire feed welder shut off during use and will not turn back on ?


if you use the welder for too long at high amps it will go into over heat mode and shut down
you may have to reset the overload control ( how to do is in the user manual)
mig welders need a cooling of period during use and it is stated in the duty cycle specifics for the machine
contact the service shop for exact details

Our MillerMatic 175 wire feed cannot be adjusted down enough. The rheostat seems to function, but even the lowest setting is now way too fast.


Your Millermatic 175 has syncronize wire speed-voltage feature in order to reduce the wire speed first reduce your heat (voltage). Try again.

Welder Motor runs , Gen works , welder won't excite and weld


A MIG welder is a complicated machine, unlike the stick welder. You can lose a lot of time if you must wait for someone else to fix the MIG. If you know basic troubleshooting for your welding machines, you can save a lot of time and a lot of money.
See if the wire is feeding properly. A worn drive roller can affect the feed and cause it to slip. When you're checking, look for debris and dirt on the liner. This can also cause bird nesting. Sometimes troubleshooting welding machines is as simple as cleaning it and allowing the wire to move freely.
  • Step 2 Look at the tip near the wire exit, inside of the gun. A worn out tip doesn't allow the electricity to efficiently hit and creates a lot more work on the job. Burn back can cause a bad wire.
  • Step 3 Clean the welding cup of the splatter. This task seems mundane, but troubleshooting welding machines usually involves clean components. Proper gas coverage cannot occur if the cup is plugged.
  • Step 4 Inspect the ground clamp. When this part is coated with oxides, electrons can't readily transfer. A bad ground **** can cause a lot of resistance and change the way that the current comes back to the machine.
  • Step 5 Examine the welding cable for worn spots. A badly worn can cause problems.
  • Step 6 Adjust the brake on the wire spool. Setting it too high or too low can cause problems with your machine operation.
  • Sometimes you can overlook the simplest things when you're troubleshooting welding machines, so always go from the simple to the more complex.
  • Always have a qualified electrician look at the parts on the inside of the machine.
  • Don't continually subject your MIG welder to thermal overload, which could cause permanent damage.

    Millermatic 200 will not weld


    1 - Check the ground connection to the work, including the actual cable to clamp connection.

    2 - Make sure that the wire feed rollers are nice and clean. The wire needs to be clean too.

    3 - Check that the polarity changing wire connections are nice and tight, clean, etc.

    4 - change and or service the contact tip at the end of the gun.

    as always, gently clean out the loose junk inside the case. A clean welder is a happy welder. :-)
