SOURCE: welder feeding or arking

Release the wire feed rollers,turn the wire feed dial up to maximum ensure you are well away from the earth clamp, pull the triger, you should hear the relay click in, if it dosn't check the 5 mil anti serge fuse positioned on either the front of the set or on the control panel near the wire feed rollers inside the cabinet. usualy covered by a plastic screwed knob, make sure the unit is unpluged before any testing.

SOURCE: hobart handler 140 will not feed wire

A schematic would certainly help, give Hobart a call and ask for a wiring diagram. or manual. Hobart are very helpful and may even give you guidance, you may have to pay the postage, they usually fax these documents so it will not cost you anything.

This could be caused by not enough pressure on the drive wheel. Try adjusting pressure as spelled out in you manual.

I have a craftsman 20511 mig welder it will start welding without pushing trigger


Elmer, If you remove the gun assembly from the machine, if the machine is now not feeding wire, the problem is most likely the gun trigger is faulty. The switch contacts heat up and start sticking over time. If able too disassemble and clean trigger contacts. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Wire doesn't feed


Either the trigger mechanism in the gun is bad, the servo that turns the feed wheel is bad, or you have too much tension on the adjustable tensioner knob. Take the wire out of the feed wheel, plug unit in and see if you can get the wheel to turn. If not, it is the trigger or the servo. If it turns, the tensioner was too tight.
