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

Would like to know how leads hook up


for normal wire on gas the + wire is the hand electrode
the - terminal ( clamp )goes to earth on the job
when using gas-less wire in a mig the wires are connected in reverse
when using a stick hand piece in the mig the stick hand piece is on the + terminal , the same as gas less wire
all of this would be in your user hand book or can be down loaded for your machine

Why wont the wire come through my cosmo gas gasless welder


Most mig welders have reversible feed spools. There is a good chance you have the spool in the .030 wire side. Remove the spool retaining clip and flip the spool to .023 wire for example. I don't know what size wire you are using. Also there is an adjustment for the drive spool. Tighten the tensioner spring thumb screw to increase the feed tension.

Rossi 220BZ Gas/Gasless Inverter Welder MIG MAG ARC Portable Welding Machine


The Rossi 220bz mig welder comes set up to use gas welding, that is with the Mig electrode connected to the positive terminal, inside the machine.
To use gasless mig wleding, the mig wire must be disconnected from the positive terminal inside the machine and reconnected to the Negative terminal - inside the machine. Open both the side coveres of the welder using a phillips screwdriver. Use a 13mm spanner to undo the hex nut holding the thick copper Mig lead to the terminal named positive, then lead it through the machine to the terminal on the oppisite side of the machine, labelled negative and screw it in place there with a 13mm hex screw. Be carefull not to bump any of the many electric parts inside the machine.
If you run the Mig welder in gasless mode with positive earth and positive elecrode it will blow the household electric fuse.
If you run the Mig welder in gasless mode with negative earth and positive electrode it will work, but the end of the Mig gun tip will get very very hot and start smoking abnormally from excessive heat.
But if you take the side covers off and rewire it (takes about 10 minutes) to negative Mig Electrode, the Mig gun tip remains cool and does not overheat. You will have to cut just one white cable tie, to get an extra inch or so of free Mig cable, so the thick copper Mig lead will reach accross to the terminal on the other side of the machine named negative. Stick the earth lead at the front in the positive terminal.
I did this on my Rossi 220bz mig welder.

Same problem here...using proper gas, more heat (setting 4) should penetrate better, no? have lots of flow from blueshield 8 bottle. What gives?


Your machine is rated for less than 1/8" thick metal welding. The only way you can have a depper penetration is by using innershield wire instead of metal core one. Innershield wire does not require gas and it will melt at lower heat.

I didnt see a betaMig 170 model, but the manuals should be similar for the other betamig manuals. Here is the link:
