Hi,
To get parts for your welder you'll need to have the serial number off the tag on the case. This problem could have other causes, have you:
Checked the tension on the wire spool? You ought to be able to pull the wire by hand easily.
Checked the tension setting on the pinch rollers? Too much tension can drag down the motor speed.

You could also have a bad control card depending on which model wire feeder this is.

Regards,
Carl

Hi Stan, the best thing to do is phone Hobart or the hobart agent for a price on a new motor, however this sounds like it is a power transistor over heating in the circuit, these power transistors are mounted on a large "fined" aluminum plate, take a look for signs of heat around the transistor mounting or have a decent electrician to test them, referring back to Hobart, these guy's provide good service, they have a help line also but I don't have the number.
lets know how thing work out

I have a hobart Handler 135 and it won't feed the wire correctly. At first it will feed about 6 " of wire then it goes down to about an inch at a time then it will just click. If you wait awhile it will...


If you completely remove wire from unit does it still slowdown and stop when you pull trigger?
If yes, then 2 most common problems are
A. Thermistor @ position PTC1 on circuit board
B. Drive Roller Motor

To diagnose, locate thermistor @ position PTC1 in upper middle part of circuit board.
It's yellowish round and about 1/2" in diameter.
Jumper Accross the 2 leads, use a small insulated screwdriver or meter probe.


1. Pull trigger on gun, when motor slows or stops then jumper the leads, if it speeds back up then it's the Thermistor
Replace with a Raychem RXE 1.85A @ 72 v
Or comparable, try EBay

2. If no change, isolate motor by removing the 2 leads and connect a 9-12 volt DC battery source, does motor spin? If not then motor is problem. If motor spins and is constant then additional troubleshooting needed, next possible issues are bad resistor or scr

Drive motor for hobart 125


Your Hobart has a Drive Motor Protection.The Drive motor protection circuit protects drive motor from overload. If drive motor becomes inoperative, release gun trigger and wait until protection circuit resets allowing drive motor to feed wire again. Or you can reset it manually by pressing the reset button located on the back welder. If these actions does not work then here's the part number for your motor:HOB 239696.Check our website for pricing you need to call since this is an old welder and pricing needs to be search at Hobart Co.

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 a Clarke Mig 130EN Fan Cooled Welder that is not feeding wire and I can't find anyone local to work on it, nor do I know where to go about finding parts. The only Clarke phone number I found...


Hi:

If you are in the USA, check WWW.Praxair.com for your nearest welding store they will help you, Praxair has more than 1000 retail stores in the USA.
If you can make the motor to work just by by-passing the switch then your problem relies on the gun switch, that's an easy fix.

Just an advice; stop buying clarks, it is pretty defficult to obtain speare parts. Lincoln, Miller, Hobart or any other american machine are easier to find parts and are pretty good welders.

Wire keeps jambing in hose


Make sure you are using a high quality brand of wire. Don't use the junk Harbor Freight sells. Use Hobart or Lincoln Electric. Also make sure your wire feed setting isn't too fast.

Installed new spool wire tangled in wire feed compartment and stopped. Now wire feeder doesn't feed.


If the feed wheel mechanism does not move, check for voltage at the motor. If there is none present, you need to look for a failure on the control board, which may be a fuse, or even one of the SCR's. Often an 8 amp 200 volt type.

I have a hobart handler 135 motor stops feeding


Take the drive motor off and blow out dust, chips, wire pieces, etc. and then rinse out with contact cleaner, blow dry, re-install. Had to do this every so often with mine. Hope that helps.
