There is the possibility that that the tensioner for the wire rollers is too tight. If this is the case here is a good rule of thumb for any make wire welder. Run the wire out of the tip about an inch or so, grab the wire with your fingers, now pull the trigger. If the wire is pushing your fingers back with a good amount of force loosen the tensioner, and repeat this procedure until the wire just starts to push and then the wire starts to slip in the rollers of the wire feed. Your tensioner will be set just right. Another possibility is that the tip and nozzel are dirty causing it to ground when you pull the trigger and the wire touches your work. If this is the case clean both tip and nozzle. A good tip is to us a an anti spatter product. Just rememer to dip the nozzle in it every once in a while, while the nozzle is hot. A third possibility is that the liner in your lead is dirty or the wrong diameter wire for the lead, tip or the rollers is being used. Check to make sure that these items match the diameter wire you are using.
I know the response is a little long, but I hope it helps.

My karcher pressure washer has lost its water power


I have the same problem. With mine I have to remove the tip that I am using then pull the trigger and then replace the tip and pull and pressure should return. I believe that one of my valves is sticking causing me to reprime the pump frequently. I am trying to clean or replace my valves to fix the problem.

I hope this helps.

Welder feeding or arking


Release the wire feed rollers,turn the wire feed dial up to maximum ensure you are well away from the earth clamp, pull the triger, you should hear the relay click in, if it dosn't check the 5 mil anti serge fuse positioned on either the front of the set or on the control panel near the wire feed rollers inside the cabinet. usualy covered by a plastic screwed knob, make sure the unit is unpluged before any testing.
