Question about Hobart Welding Tools
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.
