Some welders control wire speed with the amps control, some control amps with the wire speed control. You might try turning things up until it runs smoothly without pushing back. If you're new at welding, it does take some practice until it feels right.

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.

If the knob spins all the way around (and especially of it didn't always do that), it's broken. This could mean that the nut that holds the rheostat in place has come loose, or it could be that the wiper inside the rheostat has broken off the shaft. To find the voltage measurements, correct schematics, etc, I'd need to know the serial number of your welder.

Get a volt meter, go to ohms setting , check transformer to ground for low to zero ohms reading. also look closely at transformer windings for foreign objects in between them, never know what you my find. If transformer is shorted to ground probably time to say some nice words over it before burial. Also just for kicks try a new gun on it, (there is a reason i'm asking you to do(this) see if you can find someone that has spare. A good honest repair shop would probably be reasonable if all else fails. to a least let you know if the transformers a problem. good luck
