There should be a gas selonoid switch on the inside of the case where the gas hose attaches. sounds like its stuck open. may be defective. try pulling on wire off of the switch and see if it still does itor if the gas still flowes.should be connected with spade connections so its easily pluged and unpluged

If I am using a 150A High frequency TIG welding machine, would you recommend a torch with gas control valve or not


You should control the normal gas flow at the bottle with a flow meter. Your welder may have additional settings such as 'post gas' and 'pre gas' to start the flow before you press the button or keep it going for a short time after you release it.

Your gas hose or torch could be bad or plugged. Your gas solenoid on the welder itself could be bad. Disconnect the torch gas hose at the welder and see if you have gas coming out of the welder itself.

My miller sychrowave tig welder is not blowing sheilding gas when it strikes an arc. The gas is on at the tank. I can hear what sounds like gas or a valve opening when I press the foot control, but my...


Remove the tig torch twist lock from the front of the machine. Step on the pedal as if you were striking an arc and gas should flow out of the twist lock port. If gas comes out of the port, your torch probably has a valve built in (many do) often this is a sleeve on the torch body which you rotate but may not be obvious.
If no gas out of port then its the solenoid or regulator.
You do have the machine in TIG mode and not stick?

The wire feed on my welder will not work.


Maybe you can get lucky like I did . Some times the acr volt selector switch gets corrosion in it and wont let the circuit board know to send power to the wire feed motor. You can cycle this arc volt. switch in my case it is the a,b,c,d,e, switch back and fourth a few times and this will brake the corrosion and your wire might feed again as mine did . This corrosion build up happens from not using and or sollecting the switch much usually on a welder at hm that gets very little use. it is common good luck .

most wire feed problems stem from WF rollers, liners, clutch mechanism on the reel, or contact tip, very rearly on the torch, Torch units are cheap enough and come in a wide range and lenghs, avoid long length cables unless nessasary. you can obtain a drawing of torches from the torch manufacturers

Spool wire starts to melt while on the spool


1] Switch off the mains power,remove the torch from the machine,ther should be a button or switch on the unit to feed the wire, push or switch these and observe that the wire feeds and dose not heat up, if ok then you have a short in the torch, a new torch assembly is required,if the wire heats up with the torch removed, the wire spool is shorting out, remove the spool and check wiring in and around the feed motor, if you can't see anything check for a voltage from a good earth and on the rollers, if you have a voltage then the motor is faulty.(earthing out) a P.A.T test should show exactly where this is.

Tig my pudle melts into gray not shinny


Ensure you have the correct angle when using the torch = 22-24 degrees from vert: this will provide good gas coverage. setting should be 15 - 20 ltrs using a "flow meter".clean the material thoroghly then weld , dont clean then leave for a long time.
Argon gas sometimes can be contaminated and cause heavy soot on the weld bead,
TIG electrode should be Zirconiated with a rounded end not pointed.
Use forehand ,method

Welder not welding


The contact tip is the main source of power, if the tip is bigger than the wire then you will not get a proper conection, the earth clamp is a essential part of the system make sure you have a good earth and all the conections are tight

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.
