SOURCE: Have a Hobart Beta-Mig 170 Wire will not feed

First make sure the nozzle tip is free of any debris and the wire will slide easily. Lift the case and go to the wire feed unit. Loosen the pressure nob then lift up to release the pressure wheel. Make sure the bottom wheel ( should have two grooves, one for .35 wire and the other for 025 wire.) Make sure the Wire Feed Tip is also free and it allows the wire to pass through. Pass the wire through the feeder across the drive wheel and into the hose. Allow the pressure wheel to drop, then lift the pressure know to the upright position. Turn clockwise to put tension on the wheel. Make sure the gas is OFF, turn power on, depress trigger switch. This should allow the wheel to turn and feed the wire.

SOURCE: Hello, I have a Hobart

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

SOURCE: Installed new spool wire tangled in wire feed

If the feed wheel mechanism does not move, check for voltage at the motor. If there is none present, you need to look for a failure on the control board, which may be a fuse, or even one of the SCR's. Often an 8 amp 200 volt type.

SOURCE: my sp 135 welder is burning the wire

If the wire is melting off in front of the feed rollers . Then the torch power cable is probably open circuit , inspect the cable as it leaves the front of the unit, it usually gets damaged there.

Ism coil roofing nailer will not hold nails in striking chamber after they advance


The feeder area of the nailer incorporates small levers on both sides of the nails. On the body side, the spring loaded feeder retracts and pulls forward the first nail. On the latch side small spring loaded arm/s hold the nails in place once they are pulled forward. Open the latch and push on both the feeder and the retanier for firm spring tension. On some nailers, due to wear, the grippers on the feeder tend to wear off allowing the nail to slip out of place. On other nailers, the feeder arm/shaft tends to wear and alows the feeder to move out of alignment (check if the actual feeder arm can move from side to side). The feeder shaft should move forward and back with no side to side movement. Finally, some coil nails are welded together with too stiff of wire. After the first nail is driven, the second nail will have one or two strands of wire pointing out not allowing the nails to move into position. After first shot, the two wires should be cut off or bent down out of the way. Good luck.

Drive wheel for wire feeder starts slow as if it is stuck at the begining, even if there is no pressure on the drive wheel.


check the feed gear that pulls the wire off the roll there are lots of little teeth on this gear if there striped off the wheel slips also if the welding wire is rusty it will jam in the neck tube

My welder just stopped welding. It's a Telwin 220 Mig. The fan is still running but there is no noise from the welder and the wire is not feeding. I had only used it for around 30 seconds before it...


your feeder may need adjusting or more commonly the tip has tacked itself on the edn cap
keep the line as straight as you can & keep feeder compartment clean!
keep plyers handy for when wire is stuck in the tip
if you need to replace wire spool or a brakage of the wire make sure the wire is free or BURRS b4 you put it in the tube or you will damage the tube!
