If it won't push wire through gun you might need to tighten wire rollers, or check the liner for bad spots.

Suggested setting for rossi mt 200 welder


read you hand book on the settings but it all depends on material thickness being welded
higher volts = higher amps will require faster feed speeds = thicker materials
sheet metal thickness (.040"-1mm) will require very low volts -up to 20 v with a slower feed speed
remember the unit will have a very short duty cycle and that means that you cannot start a weld and keep it going for many minutes especially at high amps
it works like this ,if it is a 20% duty cycle ( on the plate of the machine then for every 20 seconds of power ( high amps) the machine has to rest for 80 seconds
if you are welding panel metal the ( very low amps) then you can weld for longer periods but the rest period has to be 4 times the weld period

Was welding and welder quit acking wire feed and gas still work i have a century pro wire welder model 170gs


Check earth wire has not become dislodged,
Pop the cover and check for burnt terminals, often overheating of the transformer can cook a terminal, easily cleaned up and replaced.

When trying to weld,the feed wire gets red hot


There are loose connections and / or a short in the gun.
sounds like the gun is grounded, and the gun is welding the wire to itself.

My welder no longer produces high quality welds


You could have a poor ground clamp connection. Check that. also increasing the gas flow will cause turbulence at the weld, this can have a negative effect on weld quality.
Check your connections, check your liner, actually, replace it if you haven't recently.

Century mig welder. The wire speed is spinning at max speed as soon as the machine is turned ON. Will only stop when machine is OFF.


My Century 225 mig has lost its power ...with adjustments to max it leaves a high weld deposit and low penertration.

What is the fix ?

The transformer has an overtempature switch the shuts the welder down when its duty cycle is exceeded. After it cools, the switch will close and the welder will run again. However, you are not supposed to use the welder until waiting an additional cooling off period as specified in you manual(~10 min.).Also you are not suppose to weld beyond the duty cycle or damage could result. Especially if done on a continuous basis.

I have access to a century mig model 117-3-, 90 amp, 120 volt. the wire feed works and it welds, but it isn't getting 12 volt power to the feed. it might be the circuit board. i know the feed works...


yes its fixable,check the main contactor for proper voltage first,power boards are high dollar,so check the price of new one then decide if you want to put that type of money in the unit.
