Tip size depends on the size of wire you are using,worn tip doesnt help wire break unless its kinking up after feed rollers.check the tennsion of feed rollers,check wire on roll for nicks(have seen bad rolls of wire from factory).

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.

Thread breakage on Juki TL-2000Qi


There are a few reasons the top thread may break.
- Check the needle plate for damage around the needle hole. Polish any burrs with fine sand paper or a needle file.
Check the hook for damage. If the hook is damaged it can cause the thread to break as it comes off the tip. Be very careful if you must remove burrs from the hook. Changing the shape of the hook tip will cause skipping problems.
Check that the top tension is not too high. The top tension should be set at a medium number
Burrs on the needle plate
Burrs on the hook assembly
Bobbin tension is too tight

The arc sputters when welding. Tried changing the electrode tip and checked the ground.


I've had slot of experience with these migs. Usually when the arc sputters, it could mean 2 things, either the roller feed tension is too light, or the liner in the pistol lead is worn. It's the flex tube the wire travels through. If it's worn the wire will hang up or snag, causing the arc to sputter. If you tighten the roller tension, and the wire back-lashes, that's a sign to change the lead. First try adjusting the speed of the wire accordingly to the heat.

Hobart handler 135 wire feeds for about a two feet then stops feed motor runs well under no load


This happens to me all the time. Wear and tear has taken its toll and everything has to be maintained for it to work. Most likely the welding tip is worn and should be replaced. Lincoln electric tips work well and I will replace mine several times during the day. Also check your tension and make sure the wire will uncoil freely from the spool. You can remove the tip and make sure the wire will feed without it. If not, your liner may be worn out. Also a welding Jell will help keep the tip from cloging. It will still happen, but hopefully not on your first weld of the day.

Century 155gs wont weld correctly


Hi, Have you tried replacing your liner? The liner can get worn in the gooseneck. As the wire wears into the liner it creates a groove. The wire has +/- tolerances, and when it gets to the high side, it can cause the wire to catch in the smaller size groove, this will cause a studder effect. You can check your drive roll tension as well. The gun will run better with the cable extended, not looped in circles as is often seen.
As you mentioned it has been doing this from the start, check the liner size against the wire size you are using. You may need a larger liner.
I have found that a very high percentage of feedability issues come from incorrectly cut/sized/maintained liners.
good luck.

MY BROTHER MACHINE NO. LS-2125i THREAD BREAKING WHEN SEWING?


Thread brekage can be caused by several things but start simple by taking off the needle plate then thoroughly clean the sewing mechanism and add a few drops of oil, then check the threading is correct. replace the needle. Always use quality threads and make sure that the thread is not to heavy for the size of the needle (it should pass easily through the needles eye). check that the needle hole in the plate is not bent or damaged and peppered with needle marks, a damaged plate will cause many problems. Finally, make sure that the tensions are not too tight this can be a major cause of thread breakage especially if poor quality thread is used. ( check thread by breaking it by hand, it should offer good resistance to breakage, if it breaks easily then discard it. hope this is useful, best of luck.

I have an old white sewing machine that works wonderful. I didn't get it new,so I don't have a instruction book with it. I think I need to adjust the tension because my thread keeps breaking..?


Thread breakage is not caused by tensions. If it is an oscillating shuttle machine ONLY, (do not do this on a rotary shuttle), check your shuttle tip for damage, if there is even the smallest damage on the tip, the thread will break. Find some 600 to 1000 grit emery paper and extremely gently remove any burrs.

Welder skips when welding


Hello there
here are some easy steps to see if these will help you ok
best regards michael
  1. See if the wire is feeding properly. A worn drive roller can affect the feed and cause it to slip. When you're checking, look for debris and dirt on the liner. This can also cause bird nesting. Sometimes troubleshooting welding machines is as simple as cleaning it and allowing the wire to move freely.
  2. Step 2 Look at the tip near the wire exit, inside of the gun. A worn out tip doesn't allow the electricity to efficiently hit and creates a lot more work on the job. Burn back can cause a bad wire.
  3. Step 3 Clean the welding cup of the splatter. This task seems mundane, but troubleshooting welding machines usually involves clean components. Proper gas coverage cannot occur if the cup is plugged.
  4. Step 4 Inspect the ground clamp. When this part is coated with oxides, electrons can't readily transfer. A bad ground **** can cause a lot of resistance and change the way that the current comes back to the machine.
  5. Step 5 Examine the welding cable for worn spots. A badly worn cable can cause problems.
  6. Step 6 Adjust the brake on the wire spool. Setting it too high or too low can cause problems with your machine operation.
