SOURCE: Mig welder

Sometimes dirt builds up at the beginning of the liner, at the drive. Eventually the dirt jams in there so much that it gets very hard to push the wire through it. Carefully cut the wire between the spool and the drive and secure it to the spool through a hole, so it doesn't unspool into a bird nest, then disengage the drive roller, the wire should pull out of the tip freely. If you feel resistance when you pull it out, either there is dirt at the beginning of the liner, or the contact tip is causing resistance. Without the wire in the drive, turn on the machine and try it watching the drive. Does the drive work freely now? Does it change speed with the rheostat? If its a problem with dirt, this is what I do, after you get the wire threaded back through the drive, liner and contact tip, and everything is working, take a small clean cotton rag and simply tie it around the migwire between the spool and the drive, in a way that the drive can't **** it in. This will constantly clean any dust/dirt off the wire before it goes through your expensive drive and liner. Whenever you change the spool, change the rag. Hope this helps, and please post your results.

SOURCE: I have an hobart welder-handler 150, when the

why would you need to go to the lowest setting?. anyway look at the feed rollers, make sure they are the correct size for the wire, secondly check the clutch mechanism on the wire mounting centre post this might be too tight, thirdly check the linner this could be crimped.
If the set works ok on number 2 it should be ok on 1, perform the set up again, ensure the rollers are not tightend down on the wire.
lets now if the problem clears,

SOURCE: my sp 135 welder is burning the wire

The wire will burn back between wherever it gets the power, to wherever it is grounded. If it burns back to the rollers, it must not be getting power at the contact tip.
Remember, if you are using a shielding gas, the gun wires up to the (+). If you are using flux core, the gun wires to the (-).
Of course the 'ground' connects to the opposite.
Sounds like the drive rollers are shorted to 'ground'.

SOURCE: I have a hobart handler 120/90amp wire feed welder

I have welded countless hours with Linde & Lincoln & even a few Hobarts & the only time that I ever had the same problem was when the ground connection either to the object I was welding, or the welding cable ground wasn't good & clean & tight. Same on stick welders also. I did develop the habit of grinding not only where I was preparing to weld, but where I was placing my ground clamp & that always provided a better "frying bacon" sound as I went along the business of pushing a bead. In a welder, the only other thing than that is involved is the step-up transformer and your wire. Hope this helps.

Phase three on cv or cc have current going to mig wire, wire is live without hitten gun trigger. mega arc is hooked up to a Hobart suitcase


May need to take gun apart and see if trigger is sticking or replace lead.

we use Miller at work. The feeder has a switch that makes the trigger turn off and on with quick pull of trigger so you don't have to hold it entire time.

check wiring to make sure it's wired right so your not bypassing the trigger switch.

hope it helps.

How do you hook a miller s-22p8 wire feeder to a lincoln ranger 10,000 plus engine driven welder?


you can't, the S-22P8 it's not a volt sensing wire feeder, it requires 24V or 115 with an adapter. FOr CV machines only.

Wire feed is sticking when I try to weld. If I increase friction it only jams the wire. I have never cleaned of replaced the liner. Is this my problem? I don't use this welder that much.


Cleanliness is important when it comes to Mig welding. Any rust, dirt, dust, oil is liable to be deposited in the whip liner. If it's just a dirty liner you can try cleaning it with a solvent that doesn't leave an oil deposit (electric motor cleaner, brake cleaner, that sort of thing) compressed air and flexing of the whip.

Make sure your whip hasn't been crimped, if it has then no amount of cleaning will restore it to operation.. a new liner is the only reasonable answer.

It's possible that a bad tip can cause feed issues. Miller type tips are the worst, in my experience, sometimes you just get a tip that will weld to the wire when the current passes between them. I've worked in shops where I might go through three tips in five minutes and then hit one that would last all afternoon. If the wire sticks and you can hold the gun up and rotate your wrist and you feel a 'pop' and the wire jumps out of the tip then just change the tip out. Excessive roller pressure with a tip that's sticking to the wire can really make trouble for you. Nozzle dip is your friend sometimes with tip sticking issues.

Copper clad wire is not particularly friendly to liners, the copper is liable to flake off in the liner. I use bare wire, I bag the wire in a plastic bag on the feeder and I wrap a scratcher pad on the wire just before it goes into the feeder and I find that I have few feed issues. Wire that has even a trace of rust should be discarded as it will both fill your liner with rust and give poor quality welds.

click thois link directly to get the hobart user manual.its not the exact model but near to your model of hobart the connections will be near to same and will give fair idea to connect the parts

Hi,
To get parts for your welder you'll need to have the serial number off the tag on the case. This problem could have other causes, have you:
Checked the tension on the wire spool? You ought to be able to pull the wire by hand easily.
Checked the tension setting on the pinch rollers? Too much tension can drag down the motor speed.

You could also have a bad control card depending on which model wire feeder this is.

Regards,
Carl

Hobart handler 140 will not feed wire


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.
