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

SOURCE: Wire does not feed on MIG welder

my lincoln mig welder did the same exact thing!! I thought what you did, drive motor bad. But it wasn't, on mine there is a reset/breaker button, it's like a 25 amp fuse that can be reset, it was bad! so I took the 2 wires that went in and out of it and jumped them together (not advised) to see if it would work then. BINGO!! now I have to find replacement. Look inside for a fuse or some thing like that.
hope this helps, oh yeah, when I ask the mechanic at the welding store he said that drive motors rarely go bad!!

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.

How to change your dryer from 3 wire to a 4 wire power cord. (short and simple)


Dryers come with a wire or metal strap connecting the center "neutral" terminal to the frame of the dryer. When using a four wire power cord, take that wire or strap off the frame. (it can be discarded or better yet, in case this dryer needs to ever be converted back to a three wire cord) connect the frame end of the wire / strap to the center terminal of the power block. Now, Green (ground) wire goes to the dryer frame, White (neutral) goes to the center terminal, and the Red and Black (both "hot") wires go to either outside terminal. (one to each)

Replacing electrical cord


if you buy a color coded cord and plug then red and black go on thee 2 outer terminals of the power terminal and the white wire goes between these as this is the neutral connection and if it has a green ground wire connect this anywhere to the metal case of the unit, if its a gray cord with no colors then the 2 outer wire on the cord go to the outer terminals on the units power terminal block and the center wire on this cord goes to the center terminal on the unit

Where do the wires go for the power cord in the rear of the dryer? there is no color code.


If you are using a 4 prong cord,the white goes to the center terminal and the green to the external ground screw.
Black and red go to the right and left terminals. Does not matter if right or left..
A 3 wire cord...the center wire goes to the center terminal. The other 2 go right and left terminals.

Check earth wire has not become dislodged,
Pop the cover and check for burnt terminals, often overheating of the transformer can cook a terminal, easily cleaned up and replaced.

I have a 30 amp conversion cord with 4 wires and 3 terminals. What wire goes where?


Dryers come with a wire or metal strap connecting the center "neutral" terminal to the frame of the dryer. When using a four wire power cord, take that wire or strap off the frame. (it can be discarded or better yet, in case this dryer needs to ever be converted back to a three wire cord) connect the frame end of the wire / strap to the center terminal of the power block. Now, Green (ground) wire goes to the dryer frame, White (neutral) goes to the center terminal, and the Red and Black (both "hot") wires go to either outside terminal. (one to each)

GE Dryer not producing heat


First, replace the door switch. Second, check the wiring of the new cord. It should be as follows:
Dryers come with a wire or metal strap connecting the center "neutral" terminal to the frame of the dryer. When using a four wire power cord, take that wire or strap off the frame. (it can be discarded or better yet, in case this dryer needs to ever be converted back to a three wire cord) connect the frame end of the wire / strap to the center terminal of the power block. Now, Green (ground) wire goes to the dryer frame, White (neutral) goes to the center terminal, and the Red and Black (both "hot") wires go to either outside terminal. (one to each)
Third, if you still have no heat, make sure there is strong air flow out the vent outside the house when the dryer is running. If all that is good, check for 240 volts to dryer. (dryers can run the motor on 120, but need 240 to heat). Comment back (including model number) if you have further questions.
