Question about Welding Tools
I have a mig welder which has been great for ten years but has stopped feeding the wire/gas etc. there is a 6amp fuse for this which has been replaced just incase but sure that is not the problem. the welder is running fine but doesnt seem to be getting the message from the trigger to start welding ive checked the switch on the trigger and the wiring back to the welder and they all appear to be fine.
Try to short the trigger wire back closer to the unit or better still inside the panel somewhere. There is often a relay that is operated that allows gas to flow and power to the wire feed motor. Check where the trigger wire goes it may give you some idea. If you can identify the part you can source one and see if it worthwile repairing. Cheers
