Sometimes dirt builds up at the beginning of the liner, at the drive. Eventually the dirt jams in there so much that it gets very hard to push the wire through it. Carefully cut the wire between the spool and the drive and secure it to the spool through a hole, so it doesn't unspool into a bird nest, then disengage the drive roller, the wire should pull out of the tip freely. If you feel resistance when you pull it out, either there is dirt at the beginning of the liner, or the contact tip is causing resistance. Without the wire in the drive, turn on the machine and try it watching the drive. Does the drive work freely now? Does it change speed with the rheostat? If its a problem with dirt, this is what I do, after you get the wire threaded back through the drive, liner and contact tip, and everything is working, take a small clean cotton rag and simply tie it around the migwire between the spool and the drive, in a way that the drive can't **** it in. This will constantly clean any dust/dirt off the wire before it goes through your expensive drive and liner. Whenever you change the spool, change the rag. Hope this helps, and please post your results.

It is stamped on the top of the engine, in the head. It is usually pretty easy to find, and you wont have to remove any pieces to see it.

Testimonial: "ty "
I have welded countless hours with Linde & Lincoln & even a few Hobarts & the only time that I ever had the same problem was when the ground connection either to the object I was welding, or the welding cable ground wasn't good & clean & tight. Same on stick welders also. I did develop the habit of grinding not only where I was preparing to weld, but where I was placing my ground clamp & that always provided a better "frying bacon" sound as I went along the business of pushing a bead. In a welder, the only other thing than that is involved is the step-up transformer and your wire. Hope this helps.
