Hi:

If you are using flux core wire you need to switch the polarity of the machine. With flux core wire, your ground clamp becomes positive (lead) and your gun the ground. All you need to do is switch the cables above the feed rolls.

That will take care of the problem

If this was useful to you, please vote. Thanks.

Very little power at wire


try to use bare .032 wire and co2 shielded gas, If the equipment does not have a gas solenoid you may have to wire a solenoid to the trigger mechanism to get the gas to flow while the wire is feeding. The bare wire usually copper coated burns much hotter than the flux core when there is a gas shield. Also a .032 bare wire with a gas shield burns a a lower amp range and will get better penetration.

You may have to experiment with the feed rate and gas flow to get the correct setting, but the bare wire has a lot less resistance to current flow than the flux core and will burn a lot hotter when you use a gas shield.

At 115 vac there is not a lot of amperage left to create an arc and run the feeder and the rest of the unit , and the flux core wire takes a lot of amperage to burn both the wire and the flux . .

When i weld with my wire feed it pulses what am i doing wrong


you need to ether turn up the wire speed or turn down the heat, also with a flux core you have to be very close to your work. don,t forget your mask!!

Just purchased and tried to use my flux welder. It jams before flux even comes out the handle.


have you tried adjusting the tension on the flux wire? before you start feeding the wire into it make sure there isnt any kinks in the wire. seems like it doesnt take much for it to bind up once you get start welding with it im sure you will run into this problem quite allot. usually its from welding the wire to the tip. i have to be honest it can ve a pain in the ***

Wire won't feed, motor runs and it grips the wire. I can pull it through by hand but it is hard to do .Is something in the line restricting the wire?


I wll check the gun liner and see if it is kinked. Check also your contact tip, must be same diameter as the wire, if you are running flux core wire, oversize your tip, example if wire is 030, then use a 035 tip. Check also drive rolls, for flux core must require knurled drive rolls instead of grooved ones.

Hobart 140 voltage drop when welding in all setting using 30 wire and uni mix gas will start out welding good then will not ?????


Check your input line voltage. 115 volt Mig welders / plasma cutters need stable voltage / current. Test to see if the voltage drops to below 100 volts when welding. If so, find a more stable power supply.
