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.

You need to check the trigger switch wires where they connect inside the welder. Over time the tiny little wires in the cable can get stressed and break. Way less often the switch inside the gun handle gets broken or misaligned.

I have a lincoln 175+. when i got it i plugged it in an all seemed to work fine. looked like it had been dropped from quite a ways up. the biggest problem was the whole wire feed gear box all of it was...


check the return wire from the hand trigger has been connected to the speed motor wire. Check for a fuse in the system. I have just wrecked a 190 amp welder and I noticed the feed motor assy. was fully insulated from the welder body. Check that out as well as it may be shorting out and not driving the motor.

Lincon mig stops feeding wire


Been welding for a while, open side, check for proper tension on the feed wheel inside side panel, hit the trigger, if feed motor continues to spin tensioner needs tightened or mig wire may be getting hung up inside main cable lead. If motor is off on off on then its probbably the switch on the trigger getting a bad good connection, hope this helps o and check welding tip on gun end, may need replaced if worn or melted, unscrews.

Hi there,
I found a manual that has a lot of information in it.These welders only have a duty cycle of 30% so that means you can only run them 3 minutes out of 10.They have thermo switches that shut them down before they get to hot.The house breaker needs to be around 50 amps at least I have a 125 buzz box and a wire feed and that's what I use.I would check the circuit breaker in the house to see if its tripped.I turn my mig on the side so that the shavings from the wire pushing wheels don't get pushed into the liner and clog the wire and make it jam.Well hope this helps.Thank You for choosing FixYa.com and good luck!

Welder running but wont feed wire etc


Try to short the trigger wire back closer to the unit or better still inside the panel somewhere. There is often a relay that is operated that allows gas to flow and power to the wire feed motor. Check where the trigger wire goes it may give you some idea. If you can identify the part you can source one and see if it worthwile repairing. Cheers

Welder hums when you turn it on but it still welds. Sounds like a 3-phase motor with a dead leg. Ever setting is the same.


ive got a crapsman mig welder that does the same thing, i took it apart and the transformer looks to be fine, probably bad news in the long run

Relay clicks, gas blows, rollers dont turn


If you use it regularly, the liner should be replaced about every 6 months. Make sure you get a wiper for the wire. It goes inside the machine, on the wire, just before the feed rollers. It keeps the dust from clogging the liner.
