SOURCE: 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!

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.

SOURCE: Weld arc not stable. Wire feeds, good ground,

Try moving the tip closer to your work and try turning your wire speed down
Most people want to crank up the wire speed when it spits and sputters
Turn it down
See if this helps

SOURCE: Weld arc not stable. Wire feeds, good ground,

Arc blow could be the cause! Put your ground on the work piece and weld away from it. If you weld toward a ground clamp the magnetic forces will blow your arc around sometime. When taking a cert this simple mistake can make or break ya on your cap or reinforcement beads.

I have no gasflow it sounds as if the gas is leaking at the feed rolls


there is no seal at the feed rollers around the wire as it requires the correct gauge wire and feed hole to slow down the loss of gas at that point ( easier for the gas to escape up the wire housing and out the welding end )
the gas is allowed to flow when the welding trigger is operated as that opens a gas solenoid that allows gas to the welding wire tube to exit past the shroud around the welding point

read you user manual well to be acquainted with the machines operation, and if there is a persisting problem talk with your supplier and consider a warranty service check

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.

The welding wire is broke off inside the feeding hose and I can"t get it out....I have a Lincoln 100


If the welding wire is inside the liner and got stuck, you must change the liner, it is an easy fix. Take the gun off the machine and take off nozzle, and tip holder, you will need an allen key for this. Pull out the liner form the bottom of the gun and replace it with a new one. You can buy new liner at any welding shop/store. I will recommend praxair, the carry the prostar line which is very inexpensive, a new liner will cost you around 15 bucks.

I have a weldmark 140. When you turn the voltage knob it controls the wire speed. The wire speed knob does nothing


Flip up the cover on the side to expose the welding wire rool.
push the feed button on your welding gun, and watch the feed rollers.
If they are turning, then you need to increase the force on your rollers untill the wire starts feeding.

If the rollers do not turn, then you most likely have a bad switch, or connection in your welding gun or your speed control

Good Luck

Lincoln 3200hd. welder,when power switch turns on, the fan comes on, but when i pull the trigger on gun to start to weld nothing happens the wire does not feed. i am not sure what is happening


open the area were the role of wire is and check when trigger pulled if any action to feed motor. [wire might be stuck at end, or there usually is a small fuse in that area for feed motor]
