You will have to adjust the tension at the feed wheels, also make sure the spool is not too tight, I had the same trouble with the 180 model, just a bit of fine adjustment

Changed polarity on mig isito 220bz


most likely you have welded the wire to the electrode tip

unscrew the electrode tip, (copper piece the wire comes out of) pull wire out, (may need to try to feed wire with trigger at this time or pull hard with pliers)

replace tip or gently file and/or grind leading end of tip until wire is free and hole is clear

DO NOT ENLARGE HOLE INTENTIONALLY

Thank You,
Isaac

My Hobart 140 will not get hot enough to make a weld. It will feed out the wire, make a spark, and the flux core wire will melt on top of the thin rouaght iron square tube fence but it will not melt into...


Hi:
Sounds like you have the wrong polarity in your machine. If you are using flux core wire, make sure to connect your ground clamp to the positive side and your gun to the negative side. Dial the right voltage and wire speed according to wire size and metal thickness.Let me know if this help.
Regards,D.S.

Newer welders as hobart and miller are set up from factory to use innershield wire therefore polarity is set up as inverse. Check inside your machine and check that ground cable is on negative side. Your gas must be mix argon/CO2 or pure CO2 (not recommended).
Other potential problem is wire not being a mild steel one. Check you have gas flow out of your nozzle.
That's all I can think of.

Weld arc not stable. Wire feeds, good ground,


Arc blow could be the cause! Put your ground on the work piece and weld away from it. If you weld toward a ground clamp the magnetic forces will blow your arc around sometime. When taking a cert this simple mistake can make or break ya on your cap or reinforcement beads.

Weld arc not stable. Wire feeds, good ground, everything looks good, liner pulled and cleaned, new tip.


Try moving the tip closer to your work and try turning your wire speed down
Most people want to crank up the wire speed when it spits and sputters
Turn it down
See if this helps

My Hobart 175 Handler wire feed stops shortly after the arc is struck. Recovers in about 20 seconds. Motor protection ckt is probably doing it. No restriction in feed cable or gun, wire moves smoothly....


Yes sounds like it is "Detecting" a "Fault" condition and shutting down the Arc for safety, then it recovers, and it repeats, I think, you should Check, your Earth leads, Connections, and Overcurrent Protection Threshold if there is a control. Check power is going to the feed motor at time of arc, and if it is still getting enough or if it, the voltage to it,"Sags" under load...In this case it is a power supply problem.

Northern tool brand wire fed gasless welder feeds wire fan work no welding?


You need to have the ground attached to what you'll be welding on. Make sure there isn't anything on the end of your wire. Also, if your voltage is all the way down it won't do anything either. Oh, one more thing, make sure you have a contact tip on the end inside the cone. That will be the copper thing the wire goes through with a really small hole. I know some of this sounds pretty obvious but if I hadn't done these things at least once.....I wouldn't know what to look at either. I also don't know your experience level and want to cover all avenues. Hope you find it!

Wire feeds too quickly


Some welders control wire speed with the amps control, some control amps with the wire speed control. You might try turning things up until it runs smoothly without pushing back. If you're new at welding, it does take some practice until it feels right.
