To find out if you need a new reostat disconnect the wires from it and put an ohm meter on it and check the ohms resistance it should read up and down ohms as you turn the dial.

I have a Hobart 140 Handler, My Problem is the feed wire is feeding too fast. It can not be regulated with the speed control. I believe the problem is with the pc board but not a 100 percent sure.


Hi:

In order to check the wire speed control you will need to open the machine and test the wire speed control mechanism (rehostat, potentiometer) with the use a volt meter. If you see a a variation on it while moving the knob then your problem is the PC board.

Good luck and have a great day.

Hi:

If you see rust on the wire then you should stop and change the gun's liner, change the contact tip and clean the feed rolls. Rust can accumulate inside the gun and make the wire feeding a problem.

Will not arc


Check ground connection at welder along with your ground clamp. Bad connection could be the issue. Also check settings on your welder.

Weld arc not stable. Wire feeds, good ground, everything looks good, liner pulled and cleaned, new tip.


Try moving the tip closer to your work and try turning your wire speed down
Most people want to crank up the wire speed when it spits and sputters
Turn it down
See if this helps

Have a 110 volt mig wire feed. motor slows to a


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

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.
