Question about Miller RENEGADE 180 WELDER GENERATOR MIG 907395

1 Answer

Just put on a new M10 gun on my welder. When I fed the wire through, it worked fine. Tonight, when I started to finish up a crucial project, when you trigger the gun, it will feed argon and wire for about 2 seconds, then stop. At first, I thought it was my argon regulator, so I flipped the side cover, triggered again, and the motor pulled the wire for about 2 seconds. Frustrating to say the least. I tried the old gun again, and it now does the same thing. The only reason I changed the gun is because you cant get a liner and argon orifice for my old gun now....what to do?

My welder won't feed wire it sounds like it's trying to energize but can't. A couple of times it fed through but wouldn't feed to weld so I had stick weld. What happens if the liner has a restriction?

first unscrew the tiny tip at very end of torch (can be hot)!! then try to feed wire thru handle,gently shake cable as you do helps to feed wire thru cable , if successful you have allowed the amps to get too high for the feed rate (slow) and melted the tip closed , these tips are replaceable from miller and are not expensive

I have a kende mig 105 gasless welder,but the wire isn't getting fed through on the feed wheel,tried different welding wire and also turned the wheel,tried tightening the wheel,slackening it as well,i

Here's a few things you can check:
When gun trigger is pulled, do the drive wheels turn? If they aren't, pull the trigger again; do you hear anything within the machine (contactors closing, gas solinouds opening, any clicking, etc.) that would indicate the trigger circuit is functional?
If the drive wheels are turning, but wire isn't being pushed thru the mig gun, check for proper drive roll vs. wire size. If that is correct, check gun liner for obstructions. Flux cored wire tends to stop up a wire liner fairly quickly.

K3.86 The motor will not start. It starts for a few secons than stops. Does not products any power Thanks Jim

Dear Sir,
Normally when one closes the gun the machine stops. So you may have a blockage problem that is shutting the machine off. You may try to diusconnect the gun so that you run the machine without load. But..ALWAYS...with water being fed. Never run a power washer without water being fed. Without gun and water fed normally....your machine should continue working. If so you can attach the gun without the lance. If it works, you have a blocked nozzle in the lance. If so try with a very thin needle to clear the nozzel. Do not make the nozzel's hole bigger with cleaning, because then you lose power. Now these machines stop automatically by means of a control valve (Spill Valve). The spill valve when the gun is closed, pressure is created and the spill valve in turn will move to close the electricity by means of a micro switch. Spill valves give a lot of trouble if machine is left with soap in it, or if the machine is stored with pressure in it. NEVER STORE A POWER WASHER WITH PRESSURE IN IT.....always when finished working disconnect electricity, disconnect water and finally press the gun to release pressure. Well as I already said start by putting on machine without load. Then add the gun without lance so that you see that when you close the gun the machine stops....and when you open the gun machine starts again. All this without lance attached. Also in cases like these the Spill Valve sometimes gets jammed in the cutting off electricity position. Spill valves only need to be serviced with good silicon grease....but in doubt change the spill valve. If you open the machine the spill valve is located where you see 2 wires coming out. You should have special tools to remove and service/change the spill valve. Well hope you have a small idea from where to start.

I have a lincoln sp-175plus, when trying to weld it the arc just melts the wire and it balls up at the end. I also put a new contact tip in. As well sometimes the wire feed just stops. I then press...

Your drive tension is too light. There are rollers that the wire feeds through and they need to be tightened. They should push the wire through the gun but slip if you put the tip against a solid object and pull the trigger. If they do not slip, they will jam your gun. Give the tensioner another turn.

Wire won't feed into hose adapter.

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

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!

How to wire the run cap and thitewire that go it

You are talking about the 2 white wires that come out of the gun and conect to the welder right? You are also talking about the wire that runs off the spool though the gun? Well if not this will not help you but if you are then it is the solution. The gun slides through the hole in front of the welder. inside there is a butterfly screw that needs to be loosend to allow the gun end to go in all the way. you tighten the screw back down after (welding whip) gun is installed. after that if you look inside the welder at where you just did the work to slide the gun in. You will look above the whip and see two prongs that are sticking out to allow the 2 wires to slip onto the conection. It should not matter which wire goes on which tab but both have to be connected. After that then turn on the welder and squeeze the triger for a second and the wheels on the inside of the welder should start turning. Now shut off the welder and unplug it. After you install the spool you will notice two rollers. Well on the left hand side of the rollers you will see a kind of handle / nut at the top. you should loosen the nut a few turns and be able to slide it to the left until it pivots down and out of the way. now you should be able to pivot toe top roller up enough to get the wire in there. Take your wire and carefully run the wire through the rollers and into the gun. Only put in about 6 inches or so of the wire. Now you lay the top roller back down and make sure that the wire is in the groove of the roller. After that is dont then pivot that retaining bolt back up to hold down the top roller. If it feels like a hard thing to do then loosen the bolt cap a little bit more to allow for the wire size. Now tighten the retainins screw just a little bit once you put it back into original position. After this make sure that you do not have a welding tip or nozzel on the trigger side of the gun. Now plug back in and then turn welder back on. keep the welder whip as strait as possible.Extended from the machine with zero loops in it. it is alright to bring it back to the side of the machine so as you can see what you are doing. Now squeez the trigger and the rollers should start moving. If the wire roll is not feeding wire into the gun then that nut that holds the roller down needs to be tightened up just a touch. Sqeez the trigger again and see if it despences the wire. if it does not then tighten and repeat until it does. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN! That will flatten or crush the wire wich will wear out your internal gun and you rollers. Use the least amount of presure that you can to get the wire to spool into the gun. Well that should do it. If that is not the solution you are looking for then let me know and I will see what else I can come up with...Good luck....keefers
