The gas solenoid is sticking. It may require that you open it up for a little cleaning. Next time it sticks open, give it a good tap with a screw driver and see if it closes.

The gas pressure regulator, or the adjusting handle must be replaced.

If you are located in US you can get replacement parts here.

I have a linde v160 Migmaster v160, which keeps blowing the fuse???


you need a multi meter to test it, does it blow the fuse the second its switched on or when you pull the trigger, it could be the small transformer that powers the pcb, gas solenoid ,fan contactor or at worst welding transformer

Porosity in welds


There is a time lag between the trigger being pressed and gas making it's way down the hose to the weld zone. That might be what you are experiencing. It can be mittigated a little bit by increasing the flow rate through the flow meter slightly and also making sure to allow some sag in the hose. The shield gasses are heavier than air.

There are sometimes issues with varying line voltage that can be intermittent in nature that can have an effect on the weld quality, these can sometimes be tied to a certain time of day as factories go online or shut down,

Loose connections inside the welder itself can be another source of inconsistency as can an overly sensitive trigger.

I have a Linde 160 MIG and it will not feed wire, seems to be motor not gun. . . Thanks


Just to make sure it is not the trigger switch, unplug the gun from the connector. With a clip try to bridge up the connector, if the motor does not turn then your gun trigger it's fine.

A new motor can be order it at any of your local welding stores. Try Praxair.

If this was useful to you please vote. thanks..

Gas won't shut off until power is shut off


With a tig welder it is designed to do this. The gas is used to shield your weld of all airborne contaminates. Your welder should have a flow on start of weld and what they call a post flow. This post flow protects your finished weld from contamination. You can preset it from 0 to 30 seconds on a majority of welders. I would recommend you set a postflow for at least 10 seconds and hold the torch above your finished weld until gas shuts off. It is doing this for a reason! Too Protect your weld from oxidation and other contaminates while the molten weld pool sets up! Hope this helps out!
