Your weldpack 100 has a duty cycle of only 20 t0 30%, meaning that your machine will weld for 2 to 3 minutes and then you need to let it cool down for the 8-7 minutes, then start again.
If the problem continues let me know.

I have a millermatic 175 it is new the over temp light is on . what could be wrong. and no wire feed.


You bought this brand ne from a merchant?
Take it back.
The over heat light is when you have welded too long and it shuts down to cool off; were you welding?No wire feed is too vauge; you looked at feed motor and the wheels aren't moving?

Why does my cmapells haussfield welder not feed the wire correctly (it stops feeding in mid weld then picks back up) and just stop feeding completely after 10 min of welding?


Check the "duty cycle" for your unit. If you try to run it too hot for too long, it will shut itself off to prevent overheating.

Lincon mig stops feeding wire


Been welding for a while, open side, check for proper tension on the feed wheel inside side panel, hit the trigger, if feed motor continues to spin tensioner needs tightened or mig wire may be getting hung up inside main cable lead. If motor is off on off on then its probbably the switch on the trigger getting a bad good connection, hope this helps o and check welding tip on gun end, may need replaced if worn or melted, unscrews.

I have a ProMig 175. Suddenly the wire feed motor does not work. The solenoid clicks. I have manually turned the wheel trying to reposition the contacts in the motor. No help.


Verify the polarity is correct for Flux or Mig configuration (should be on label under lid) - and ensure there are no loose connections on that polarity wire.

Loosen the tensioner + make sure the wire feed motor turns freely by hand.
My WeldPak 100 and SP-135T were tough to turn, but it did turn freely.

If it does spin freely, then inspect the contacts for the voltage selector. Make sure to unplug the power cord and keep clear of the big capacitor. My SP-135T contacts corroded while in storage.

Hobart handler 135 wire feeds for about a two feet then stops feed motor runs well under no load


This happens to me all the time. Wear and tear has taken its toll and everything has to be maintained for it to work. Most likely the welding tip is worn and should be replaced. Lincoln electric tips work well and I will replace mine several times during the day. Also check your tension and make sure the wire will uncoil freely from the spool. You can remove the tip and make sure the wire will feed without it. If not, your liner may be worn out. Also a welding Jell will help keep the tip from cloging. It will still happen, but hopefully not on your first weld of the day.

I have a Lincoln Weld Pak 100 that was working fine. I shut down the machine though and when I came back to it about 5 hours later the wire feed motor wouldn't turn anymore. Has anybody else had the same...


Check the voltage at the wire feed motor when the trigger is pulled.

I had a Weld Pak 100 that with 0 volts at the wire feed motor, and the problem wound up being that 2 of the big power (stud) diodes were shorted.

Millermatic 200 won't weld


first check on the plate that tells imfo of unit ,there is what is called duty cycle.If the duty cycle says per say 30%,that means you can weld full power for 3 minuets before unit will shut down to cool.if it says 100% duty cycle there is no limit on weld time.this is the first thing to understand,if that is not the case check the main contactor where the power imput wires go,pull the gun trigger see if the contactor is pulling in , it should if not no welding amperage.

Snap On Ya219B No Spark


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.
