Have you checked the tension on the wire roll feeder? Inside the unit where the spool is, the wire feeds off of the spool, through the feed roller, this roller has a tensioner spring on it that keeps the wire flowing steady, and also check the spring tension the keeps the spool from turning freely, keep this loose as can be, and just enoughthat it doesn't unwind on it's own.
There are so many things that it can be, but this is a start.
Good Luck.

I have a lincoln sp-175plus, when trying to weld it the arc just melts the wire and it balls up at the end. I also put a new contact tip in. As well sometimes the wire feed just stops. I then press...


Your drive tension is too light. There are rollers that the wire feeds through and they need to be tightened. They should push the wire through the gun but slip if you put the tip against a solid object and pull the trigger. If they do not slip, they will jam your gun. Give the tensioner another turn.

I have a lincon 3200 hd. it stoped feeding the wire when i was welding. but it feeds when i pull the triger, till i try to weld again


These welders have thermal breakers in them so if they get to hott the will automatically stop feeding the wire but the fan will remain on, try changing the breaker i think its in the door where the spool is held. good luck]

Wire won't feed or arc fan runns


Look for a reset button on the case. Make sure that you have power to the machine and at the power socket. If everything looks ok outside, you may have to investigate your warranty. Good luck!

The wire feed on my welder will not work.


Maybe you can get lucky like I did . Some times the acr volt selector switch gets corrosion in it and wont let the circuit board know to send power to the wire feed motor. You can cycle this arc volt. switch in my case it is the a,b,c,d,e, switch back and fourth a few times and this will brake the corrosion and your wire might feed again as mine did . This corrosion build up happens from not using and or sollecting the switch much usually on a welder at hm that gets very little use. it is common good luck .
