Miller 130 wire advances, fan runs, but will not arc as wire comes out

Most of these machines (would have to have serial number to be sure) will not feed if their is no output voltage, since part of the motor voltage comes from the arc voltage.
So, I would suspect broken wires, either in the work lead or the gun. If it arcs just a little, probably the gun. One place the work lead breaks is right at the back of the clamp. Pull on the insulation and see if it "stretches". If so, the wire there is broken.

Miller S-64 wire feeder won't feed wire

Just a thought, have you tried feeding the wire manually to see if there aren't any obstruction through to the handle or nozzle? Hope this helps

I have a bostitch n80c that has a nail feed problem.

If the driver part of the gun works well, check the feed parts. First check the feed pawl where the nails lay. The teeth should be proud enough to catch and hold the nails firmly and it should work freely in its channel. Next you have to check the parts that drive the feed pawl in the cylinder on the side of the gun. There are seals and a spring and piston that should be checked. Replace any worn or broken parts.

Nv45ab won't advance nails

The allen screw/s that you mention are there to plug holes where automatic equipment would normally connect (such as automatic nailing machines) . This is only a plug and should not be driven in too far. I have also seen allen screws installed in the head to repair small crack/s.

Our Lincoln Pro Mig 175 won't feed the wire. The trigger clicks and the motor works but will not feed the wire. There's a burnt resister or capacitor on the pc board and the only numbers that we...

If your wire feed motor turns, then your problem is one of the two:
The gun's liner is kinked and no longer is allowing the wire to pass freely, or Your outlet wire guide/drive rolls are all worn out.
Easy fix will be to star with changing the liner and new contact tip. But if all that is working is your fan motor, then check your gun's trigger, if gun's trigger is OK, then change the pc board. Good luck!

I have a century mod 11705093 wire welder. I have replaced the trigger switch. Even before this though, when you pull the trigger without wire in it the feed motor spins freely, when you put wire into it...

Hi there,

That sounds like a direct short short to me. My mig has 1 nylon guide tube,one in front of the feed wheel and one just before it inters the liner.They are both insulating the drive wheel from the wire.If the teeth marks are deep enough they will act like a saw and cut right through the nylon tubes and short out on something.You may need a new liner ,the liner is carrying the current instead of the wire.That may be problem. Thank You for choosing

liner.jpg In addition to guiding the wire, the back end of the liner, shown here, contains o-rings and seals to ensure the shielding gas doesn't escape the gun cable.

Trouble feeding new wire through tip

1. Make sure that the new wire is properly locked down in the advance roller. There are grooves in this and the wire must fit in the groove.
2. Make sure the wire is properly lined up to enter the gun cable (after the roller)
3. Remove outer shield on gun and the center tip and then advance the wire until there is a few inches sticking out, then slide tip back over the wire and install the tip and shield.
