SOURCE: Wire feeds too quickly

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.

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: Wire feed not working Miller 250 mig welder

Hi there,
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.

Regards,
Carl

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

My wire feed wont work propley


Check the small wheels that drive the wire are correct for the wire you are using and clean/ properly tensioned.. Cheap "hobby" welders have poor drive arrangements and the hose to gun plastic lining wears through. All causing poor feed. If its a good brand google a user manual.

Why wont the wire come through my cosmo gas gasless welder


Most mig welders have reversible feed spools. There is a good chance you have the spool in the .030 wire side. Remove the spool retaining clip and flip the spool to .023 wire for example. I don't know what size wire you are using. Also there is an adjustment for the drive spool. Tighten the tensioner spring thumb screw to increase the feed tension.

My wire feed welder wont slow down. I was welding some thick galvanized pipe and went to turn the wire feed down and it didn't work


the speed feed rheostat(control) is shorted or you've got a short on the board if it has one. Hopefully just your switch. Check for a short from the switch to the drive motor. Remember, electricity can and will kill you. Be safe

Porblem with lincoln mig welder 135


Use a voltage tester to make certain you have current at the steel roller assembly that the wire feeds through. Check the diameter of the wire also, to assure contact at the feed rollers.

Welder running but wont feed wire etc


Try to short the trigger wire back closer to the unit or better still inside the panel somewhere. There is often a relay that is operated that allows gas to flow and power to the wire feed motor. Check where the trigger wire goes it may give you some idea. If you can identify the part you can source one and see if it worthwile repairing. Cheers
