Question about Hobart Handler 140 Mig Welder
Have not used my Hobart Handler 140 since last fall and the first time I used it there seems to be a shot as sparks fly off the tension nut and the wire burns off between the spool and the wire feed drive. There has been no mice or anything in it and it was covered so there is no dust etc. It did this twice so I shut it down. Do you have any idea what can cause this???
When you pull the trigger the entire spool of wire and anything metal that touches it becomes electrically hot. If the tail end of the spool is hanging loose and touches something on or connected to the chassis it will do that, and could have welded the connection so it's solid.
