I have a hobart handler 150, i have it run through a 50 amp plugg in and breaker dont know if thats right because it wont weld the wire burns up to fast what should i do?


Try increasing the feed rate. Decrease voltage also. If still no luck, try checking the wire diameter. If you are using flux core wire, make sure the wire isn't too old and it hasn't been exposed to moisture. If you are using gas, make sure that the gas regulator is working properly. If so, then try getting closer to your work with the nozzle. Distance from your workpiece and wind can interrupt the gas shield, causing the wire to burn unshielded.

Hobart handler 135 wire feeds for about a two feet then stops feed motor runs well under no load


This happens to me all the time. Wear and tear has taken its toll and everything has to be maintained for it to work. Most likely the welding tip is worn and should be replaced. Lincoln electric tips work well and I will replace mine several times during the day. Also check your tension and make sure the wire will uncoil freely from the spool. You can remove the tip and make sure the wire will feed without it. If not, your liner may be worn out. Also a welding Jell will help keep the tip from cloging. It will still happen, but hopefully not on your first weld of the day.

I'm looking for a 8"


The part number you are looking for are:

203 476 . . . HUB, spool
203 544 . . . NUT, hub spool

Aks the sales rep at your nearest welding supply shop to order them for you. If you have a Praxair store go to them.

Price is around 20-30 bucks for both.

New Hobart Handler 140, feeds wire properly, but no weld output


Check the two main diodes. These units have a light duty cycle. About 20% if I remember correctly. I have one that I was welding with for a considerable amount of time, and burned up the diodes. You can test them by disconnecting the wires (with unit disconnected) and use a ohm meter. You should get a reading in one direction, but not the other. If no reading, then the diode is blown. You can order new ones from your local welding shop. Also check all conections on the secondary for any signs of overheating and loose connections.

Welding aluminum and wire keepscoming out of rollers


your hobart machine it's not suit up for standard aluminum welding, the lenght of the gun it's too long therefore the wire will nest at the drive rolls. You need to buy a spool gun. Or change gun liner for a teflon one (instead of metal one), then change the drive roll for knurled ones and finally oversize your tip if you can. No need to do ALL this if you buy a spool gun.

Hobart 140 voltage drop when welding in all setting using 30 wire and uni mix gas will start out welding good then will not ?????


Check your input line voltage. 115 volt Mig welders / plasma cutters need stable voltage / current. Test to see if the voltage drops to below 100 volts when welding. If so, find a more stable power supply.

Wire burning betwen rool and feed drive


When you pull the trigger the entire spool of wire and anything metal that touches it becomes electrically hot. If the tail end of the spool is hanging loose and touches something on or connected to the chassis it will do that, and could have welded the connection so it's solid.
