Lincoln MIG welder: Gas not shutting off.

Hi, I am looking at a used Lincoln MIG welder, I believe its a 175 or 180. The owner says it works fine in every way, however he says the gas keeps flowing and will not shut off. I am hesitant to buy the machine until I have an idea what's likely wrong. Could it just be a solenoid or stuck gas valve?

Can the lincoln 305 d 1727-3 mig weld


If it has a setting for constant volatge, that is for wire feeders, flux cored or mig. Constant current is for stick welding. Some wire feeders have a switch to use them with a constant current machine, but that doesnt work very well, and , in my opinion, is hard on the computer in the feeder.

It looks like the ones we use in the field with a ln-25 wire feeder and flux cored wire. for mig you will also need a bottle of sheilding gas.

Im looking into getting a mig and have come across the century (by lincoln) welders for 299. is this a quality welder and of same quality as a Lincoln brand.


No, it's not going to be equal to the Lincoln in all ways- but if Lincoln built it it'll be a decent machine.

In all honesty, if you can only have one welder it should be a stick welder. Mig welders are full of problems and, while ideally suited to 8 hour a day 7 days a week use, can be finicky as heck when used infrequently.

The stick welder allows you to work in all positions and all conditions, it's generally cheaper than Mig welding and it's usually faster.

Lincoln 135 PRO MIG Welder feed stops after a few minutes


1/4" plate with a 135 amp machine is probably beyond it's duty cycle abilites. If you are using a mixed gas, and pushing the max on the settings, it will be cutting out because it is designed to.
You might want to get a higher amperage welder for consistent welding of 1/4"
The 140 Pro maxes out at 5/16" using inner shield wire. and 1/8", or 10 guage with gas.

The welder working its feeding the wire and gas but its not arcing


Check all wiring connections first, sounds like a broken / loose wire / terminal. If all checks out may be the transformer has failed. Also look for fuses.
If you have exceeded the "duty cycle" unit will shut down till it cools.
