Loosen your drive tension roll to disable the wire from feeding, remove the gun from the conductive adaptor (which will expose the gas outlet holes. Pull trigger and see if you're getting pressure to your gun. If so, check gun o-rings and liner. If the liner hasn't been changed in a while and you use wire lubricants, the gas tube the liner inserts through May be restricted.

No gas from welder to tip

Check with soapy water, change fitting or line

Weller Pyropen WPA2 extinguishes itself after a few minutes.

Gas (condensation really) may be freezing and constricting flow. Try warming the tip a bit with a hair dryer see if it goes longer.

Just bought a new Jenn-Air grill and cant get the temp past 250. Any ideas what i am doing wrong?

First, check that all the gas lines and flame bars are clear of any 'things' or bugs. I had a similar problem with a Webber grill and found out my problem was with the gas bottle. The new Overflow Protection Valve required on LP bottles can closed off or severly slow the flow of gas when the bottle is full and the valve is opened quickly. It will let enough gas flow to light the grill but won't let the fire get high enough to heat the grill up. Turn all the valves off on the grill and gas bottle. Open the gas bottle valve slowly then turn on the grill burner and try lighting it. If the flame is still very low try again or you have to let it burn at the low level until the OPV float drops down and the valve doesn't impede the gas flow. The best way to avoid this in the future is to not fill the gas bottle to the top when you have it refilled. Just ask the LP attendent to not fill it all the way.

There is not enough butane flow to light the soldering tip.

Hello!. W/D here.

Couple of things will get you going....forgive my being basic with my answers, I don't know how much you know.....

1. Too much gas: If you have plenty of gas in the cylinder, turn the valve down low to light the tip. Too high a gas flow will keep it from lighting.
2. Too little gas: The orifice may be partially plugged. You can purchase a tip cleaning kit at a welding supply house. Cheap. Sometimes they don't even charge for them. Use the tip cleaners to clean out the tip.
3. Bad cylinder: Sometimes, grit can get down into the cylinder screw-on fitting, and it just won't dispense gas worth a flip. I only include this item here as it will baffle the fool out of you when this is the case. But it's rare. Try a different cylinder if you suspect this.....
Best regards, --W/D--

Tried to start and would then checked oil seems gas is going into oil what could be wrong

This is caused by a problem in the carburator, usually the needle valve is stuck open letting gas continue to flow into the motor even when the float bowl is full. Things to check for are that the float is still in tack and floats on the gas so it can close the valve. More likely there is something stuck in the needle valve holding it open. If the needle valve tip or seat is damaged it can also cause this problem.

Hopefully it is something simple like turning on the full tank too fast. Turn it off, disconnect it, reconnect it and turn tank valve back on very slowly. If this doesn't resolve the issue, click on my username and scroll down my profile to my tips and tricks for gas grill lighting issues. One of them should help.
