SOURCE: MIG wire is always hot without pulling trigger

Check your manual, there are a lot of mig units on the market that are alway "Live" alternatively, the relay has either shorted or you have wirering problem on the switch.

A schematic would certainly help, give Hobart a call and ask for a wiring diagram. or manual. Hobart are very helpful and may even give you guidance, you may have to pay the postage, they usually fax these documents so it will not cost you anything.

SOURCE: northern tool mig welder,120 volt with gas.The

This welder is made in China. I have one and it works fine. Parts and service are available from northern tool. 1-800 # is on the book. FYI this 135 gas no gas looks exactly like the Lincoln SP135 and Lincoln workmate 135. GOTO the lincoln site and bring up the manual. It is a free download and is a much better manual than the one it came with. I agree with the previous post. Put a continuity test on the 2 wires that come from the trigger. there is a wire diagram in the book that came with it. Hope this helps.

You may have the scew settint your wire tension set to tight. Try loosening the tension and if that doesnt work check the eletrical wire that supplies the power to the roller and make sure it hasnt become disconected.

I have a hobart beta-mig 170 welder that I just put a new wire feed motor on but still won't work. The old motor I could tap on every now and then until it just quit. Any ideas?

Check the Switch on the handle. Many times the two wires from the trigger down to the Mig Unit break or get a bad connection

Hobart beta 200 arks without pulling trigger have to pull trigger to feed wire

I was a service tech/manager for 10 years and had my repair business for another 8 years after I left the company I worked for. Can't really remember that exact machine's theory of operation, but check your weld output contactor. Sounds like it might possibly be stuck In the closed position.

I have a IRON MAN 250 Mig Welder. that the wire don't feed, with regularty. I have a miller with the same tourch that dose the same thing. If you pull about 4 or 5 inches of wire out, with trigger...


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.

Hello, I have a Hobart 180 and the wire feeder motor won't run. I replaced the wire feed motor and it still won't run. any ideas?

Sound like you have a bad trigger on the gun. Does gas spray when you pull the trigger? Check the wire plug that goes from the pistol to the unit. It should be under the liner hose where it connects to the machine. Then use a voltage meter on the wires going to the drive feed motor, and see if you get current when you pull the trigger. If gas doesn't spray neither, sounds like you got a bad trigger switch

My welder suddenly stopped feeding wire and gas when i push the trigger. i'm assuming that either there is a problem with the trigger signal or the duty cycle was exceeded. If the duty cycle was...

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 and good luck!

Have a Hobart Beta-Mig 170 Wire will not feed

First make sure the nozzle tip is free of any debris and the wire will slide easily. Lift the case and go to the wire feed unit. Loosen the pressure nob then lift up to release the pressure wheel. Make sure the bottom wheel ( should have two grooves, one for .35 wire and the other for 025 wire.) Make sure the Wire Feed Tip is also free and it allows the wire to pass through. Pass the wire through the feeder across the drive wheel and into the hose. Allow the pressure wheel to drop, then lift the pressure know to the upright position. Turn clockwise to put tension on the wheel. Make sure the gas is OFF, turn power on, depress trigger switch. This should allow the wheel to turn and feed the wire.

I have a handler 135 but when i plug in there is a buzzing noise with the power off and if the bottle is open, it will pump the whole bottle dry. Is there a solenoid that i can change to correct this...

Sound like a solinoid jamed open, the buzzing is the solinoid plunger viberating, this is possibly due to for too much gas, turn the cylinder off. Close the regulater so the Needle/s are at 0, release the wire feed rollers, pull the trigger , set the flow meter to approximatly 12-15Ltr try welding again.
