Always the same problem with seelye's. Check your ground cable and if doubts of being well tight the terminals and the ground clamp, change them.

This will take care of the problem.

Fan on millermatic250 mig welder doesnt stay on all the time should it?

The fan does not run continuously. It only runs when it needs to. It depends on the work load of the welder. Short runs do not cause it to heat up enough to close the contacts for the fan. The longer welds will create the heat in the coil to rise enough to close the contacts and make the fan run.

Just purchased and tried to use my flux welder. It jams before flux even comes out the handle.

have you tried adjusting the tension on the flux wire? before you start feeding the wire into it make sure there isnt any kinks in the wire. seems like it doesnt take much for it to bind up once you get start welding with it im sure you will run into this problem quite allot. usually its from welding the wire to the tip. i have to be honest it can ve a pain in the ***

Ive got a handler 135 110v - the weld penetration is very poor - using 030 solid wire with 75/25 gas, I have to run the machine at setting 4 to get a half way decent penetration on exhaust tubing, sheet...

This machine is supposed to be hooked up to a 20 amp breaker all alone, with nothing else running off that 20 amp breaker. Also are you using an extension cord? It is usually not recommended to do so, although I have the same machine and it seems to do just fine. Just make sure you are getting proper power to the machine.

Ranger welder does not generate enough dc current to weld with and only enough current to turn a ac drill very slowly. checked wires seem to be ok.

clean the brush rings with a very fine emery cloth is still then there is a controller board issue at that point it will have to go to a service center do to there are no supplier's for them other that Lincoln go to their sit HERE and find a service center in your area these boards range from $250.00 to $600.00 there is 4 of them in the machine they will have to remove the top and swap the boards till they find the right one have the same welder i have been through this with Lincoln already hope this helps

Ave a power mate 225 amp 240 volt welder that wont arc

Sounds to me like the Power Controller has gone bad. These are a real tricky, dangerous, things to fix yourself, I recommend that you call the service rep, for Power Mate,and cut your losses.
