Can you hear the motor? If you can, tighten the tension on the wheel. If the motor is not runnung, check the trigger switch to see if it's working. A wire in the handle may have broken.

SOURCE: lincoln 140 hd turns on

Hi:

Try by-passing the trigger switch by disconecting the trigger cable cord (not the gun) and using a wire bridge the connector at the machine, if the motor turns, then your problem is the gun switch, that's an easy replacement, if not then you have a problem with the motor itself or the pc board and you will need to sent it in to a pro for repair.

SOURCE: runs but gun dosenot opreate, it is a clarke 130en

The only things I can think of are:

  • The tension on the coil of welding wire is too tight and needs slackening off.
  • The feed rollers need cleaning and the tension adjusting.
If none of these solutions solve your problem then I can not help you any further.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: NO WIRE FEED BUT WELDER CLICKING AS IF FEEDING

This could be caused by not enough pressure on the drive wheel. Try adjusting pressure as spelled out in you manual.

I have a craftsman 20511 mig welder it will start welding without pushing trigger


Elmer, If you remove the gun assembly from the machine, if the machine is now not feeding wire, the problem is most likely the gun trigger is faulty. The switch contacts heat up and start sticking over time. If able too disassemble and clean trigger contacts. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

My trigger to my millermatic 250 won't stop feeding the wire even when switch is not pressed


Does it feed with the trigger plug removed from the machine? If so, then it is a circuit board. If no, then wires shorted somewhere in the gun.

Hello, I have a Hobart 180 and the wire feeder motor won't run. I replaced the wire feed motor and it still won't run. any ideas?


Sound like you have a bad trigger on the gun. Does gas spray when you pull the trigger? Check the wire plug that goes from the pistol to the unit. It should be under the liner hose where it connects to the machine. Then use a voltage meter on the wires going to the drive feed motor, and see if you get current when you pull the trigger. If gas doesn't spray neither, sounds like you got a bad trigger switch

Renegase 180


This fault is typical in most MIG/MAG Units. the feed roller/s need slackening off, pull the trigger so the rollers spin wire the wire not moving, turn the tensioning 1 turn check to see if the wire feeds, if not give a half turn on the tentioner repeat this half turn untill the wire feeds, bend the wire to the torch and pull the trigger, If the wire feeds then thats the correct setting. be awear of all safety rules. use gloves
