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 are going to need to remove the wires going to the wire feed motor, then take a volt meter and check the wires when you pull the trigger. this will tell you if the motor is bad or another problem

    it does look alot like a hobart, prob. the same manufacture. sometimes when a cheaper store like northern tool has a product like that they use cheaper parts inside, good luck

I have a kende mig 105 gasless welder,but the wire isn't getting fed through on the feed wheel,tried different welding wire and also turned the wheel,tried tightening the wheel,slackening it as well,i


Here's a few things you can check:
When gun trigger is pulled, do the drive wheels turn? If they aren't, pull the trigger again; do you hear anything within the machine (contactors closing, gas solinouds opening, any clicking, etc.) that would indicate the trigger circuit is functional?
If the drive wheels are turning, but wire isn't being pushed thru the mig gun, check for proper drive roll vs. wire size. If that is correct, check gun liner for obstructions. Flux cored wire tends to stop up a wire liner fairly quickly.

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.

It willnot weld


if it is just not feeding wire, check the tension on feed wheel. Make sure it turns when trigger is pressed. Also make sure you have gas with solid wire. If you have cored wire gas is not needed.

I have a century mod 11705093 wire welder. I have replaced the trigger switch. Even before this though, when you pull the trigger without wire in it the feed motor spins freely, when you put wire into it...


Hi there,

That sounds like a direct short short to me. My mig has 1 nylon guide tube,one in front of the feed wheel and one just before it inters the liner.They are both insulating the drive wheel from the wire.If the teeth marks are deep enough they will act like a saw and cut right through the nylon tubes and short out on something.You may need a new liner ,the liner is carrying the current instead of the wire.That may be problem. Thank You for choosing FixYa.com



liner.jpg In addition to guiding the wire, the back end of the liner, shown here, contains o-rings and seals to ensure the shielding gas doesn't escape the gun cable.

My hobart handler 120 will not feed wire. took the feed motor off and tested. Its good. checked the trigger connections and they are both in good shape. The gas valve does click when the trigger is pulled....


First take our the spool of wire, then without any wire restriction, disconnect the gun from the machine and bridge the trigger connection, if the solenoid valve opens then the motor shoulod run. If it does, then check the trigger on your gun, take it off and bridge the cables, if it runs then your trigger switch is faulty.

Wire doesn't feed


Either the trigger mechanism in the gun is bad, the servo that turns the feed wheel is bad, or you have too much tension on the adjustable tensioner knob. Take the wire out of the feed wheel, plug unit in and see if you can get the wheel to turn. If not, it is the trigger or the servo. If it turns, the tensioner was too tight.

Northern tool brand wire fed gasless welder feeds wire fan work no welding?


You need to have the ground attached to what you'll be welding on. Make sure there isn't anything on the end of your wire. Also, if your voltage is all the way down it won't do anything either. Oh, one more thing, make sure you have a contact tip on the end inside the cone. That will be the copper thing the wire goes through with a really small hole. I know some of this sounds pretty obvious but if I hadn't done these things at least once.....I wouldn't know what to look at either. I also don't know your experience level and want to cover all avenues. Hope you find it!
