Check your ground cable for proper continuity, adjust your temperature setting, if still no luck, check fuse

    Suggested setting for rossi mt 200 welder

    read you hand book on the settings but it all depends on material thickness being welded
    higher volts = higher amps will require faster feed speeds = thicker materials
    sheet metal thickness (.040"-1mm) will require very low volts -up to 20 v with a slower feed speed
    remember the unit will have a very short duty cycle and that means that you cannot start a weld and keep it going for many minutes especially at high amps
    it works like this ,if it is a 20% duty cycle ( on the plate of the machine then for every 20 seconds of power ( high amps) the machine has to rest for 80 seconds
    if you are welding panel metal the ( very low amps) then you can weld for longer periods but the rest period has to be 4 times the weld period

    Miller spoolmatic pro 30A, It still feeds, but won't arc. Less than a year old, what can I try?

    Run the first layer of wire of the spool you will see a color change. The wire gets a fine layer of oxidation and this causes a bad contact.

    Spoolmate 100 wont feed

    Check for binding int he inner sleeve first, then increase tension as long as feed motor spins. If feed motor does not spin check wiring to make sure it is connected correctly.

    Pourosity in my welds as if there is no sheilding gas.Ihave tried adjusting gas flow from 0 to max . I can hear and feel gas flow but still come up with a weld that looks like it was done outside with a...


    The main causes for porosity are: lack of inert gas or too much flow of gas.

    1. If you can hear and feel the flow of gas on; avoid the high flow by decreasing the flow to max of 20 scfh for when welding inside with no draughts if welding outside you can increase it to 30 scfh.
    2. Before welding clean your welding piece with a wire brush.
    3. Check you voltage; a high voltage can also cause porosity due to the high heat of the arc and coldness of the gas.
    These three actions should improve your welding.

    I have a 50A spoolgun and wc-24 controll box, but i cain't adjust the heat, and it is way to hot, any ideas as to what the problem may be. it worked fine one day and the next day it was too hot and...

    The control box for the spool gun it's just an adapter to feed the right voltage to the wire feed motor, the heat (voltage) must be adjusted from the three knobs:
    1) Process Contactor knob must be dial on wire feeder CV using remote.
    2) Polarity Must be set on DC
    3) Voltage, depends on thickness of your work piece and wire gage, but 20 volts must be enough for up to 1/4" thickness and 035 4043 aluminum.

    I never heard of a 50A spool gun, probably you meant 30A.

    If your voltage it's erratic check the following:

    Clean and tighten connections both inside and outside unit.

    Check and secure lead connections to remote control.

    Be sure connection to work piece is clean and tight.
    Remove excessive coils from weld cables.

    If continues to be too high (hot) and can't control it, then you should send your machine to be checked that's probably a problem with the PC1 or PC2.

    If this was useful to you please vote. Thank you and good luck.

    Welding gun doesnt respond when trigger is pressed

    First determine if the wire drive motor responds to the trigger.

    If not, then there is a fuse for the motor I believe.

    If the motor tries to drive the wire, the wire MAY have jammed into the side of the transfer tube or the end fitting preventing it from moving.

    Mig Question

    MIG stands for Metal Inert Gas welding, many times called Wire-feed.. Also referred as GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding). The "Metal" refers to the wire which is what is used to start the arc. It is shielded by inert gas and the feeding wire also acts as the filler rod. A semi-automatic process, it is fairly easy to learn and use.
