I have a 250 bobcat that stick welds just fine but when you go to wire feed and plug in suitcase box wire feed unit wire feeds but it doesn't get hot enough to melt the wire. LF299725

What model of suitcase? Could be the contactor in the suitcase, could be the mig gun. Are you using the CV setting on the Bobcat, instead of CC? Is the Bobcat on the high CV setting and the dial most of the way?

what do you mean by "dash lights"? how do you KNOW the pump isnt working? how do you KNOW its good? at the ignition switch the ORANGE and PINK should have power in the RUN position the BROWN and TAN/WHITE should also be HOT in the run position. There should be a red wire near the fuel pump relay, make sure its HOT when cranking. IF its HOT and the fuel pump doenst run, the pump is bad. You can also put 12V on that red wire and power the pump.

Hello, do you have the welding tip in the nozzle? This tip provides the proper grounding of the electrode wire.

Sir, we are using machine mounted MIG welding torches.Before these torches are working properly, now we got problem i.e, nozzle became red hot, cos of this we had stopped our production. pls suggest me.The...

Ensure that you are using the correct contact tip in the welding gun, if the tip is too short; the cup will fill with splatter and submit excess heat to the cup.

Also, make sure if you are using a name brand gun 'miller, lincoln etc' to use THEIR contact tips, the miller guns use a special tip 'the threads on the tip are mashed into the gun ensuring maximum contact for high amperage welding' if the wrong tip is used, it will overheat and jam the wire.

Another thing to remember is to check the amperage rating on the actual gun itself; you may have a 150 amp maximum gun on a 300 amp welding unit.

Good luck

Having problem with heat range.

Try keeping your heat setting hot, but increase your wire speed and regulate your welding speed accordingly. How does the weld look with your settings where you started?

Plug wiring

When wiring a new plug for which voltage input?
The cutter has a white wire, a black wire, and a green one - white is the neutral line, black is the hot line, green is ground.
You can see this in section 4-9 of the owners manual, if you don't have a manual you can go to and get a PDF file of the manual.
