Question about Lincoln Welding Tools

1 Answer

Bought a new 140HD online. Worked great first Lb of wire,now when I try to strike a arc it barley sparks.Trigger works fine,wire feeds at whatever speed it is set at,tried different outlets.changed the wire,using a flux core for mild steel.Even tried to strike directly to ground,no difference.checked all the terminal connections for loose,all seems tight.Any ideas on what might be wrong?

Most likely Your inner Shield has worn threw and shorted out ry changing the inner wire feeder liner by removing the nozzle and remove the tip and pull the inner liner out and replace it. If it still does not work Check fuse on side panel be sure it is unplugged.

I have a century 125 110 welder, the welding wire backs up to gun when stricking arc


Hi there, Sounds like your wire speed is to slow or not feeding at all.Your wire may be crossed or the spool may be to tight.I lay mine on the side so the wheel shavings fall away from the wheels. and I open the lid to see whats going on.One time I got the wire twisted and It wouldn't work right and it finely snapped in to.Take the label off and that can help to.Feed some wire out with out striking an arc and watch the spool and rollers.Make sure wire is in the proper grove.One last thing you want to feel the wire push your hand back when you weld.Depending on the use you may need a new liner.Thank you for choosing FixYa.............Darryel

My little 110 mig welder is arcing without trigger pulled


i believe that the trigger only send out the wire and does not control the arc the tip should be live as long as the welder is on

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 .

No arc/ no burn


You need to inspect the ground.Where it connects to the machine, and at the end. I bet one of the connections or the wire itself is damaged.
