Question about Miller Welding Tools

Open Question

I picked up a used Miller Sidekick mig welder and have been playing with it and have found that there is a delay from when I let up on the trigger and when the wire feed and power to the wire stops. Also, it doesn't seem like I can turn the wire speed down far enough, the speed does change with the speed control, but I can weld best with it turned down all the way.

You may have the scew settint your wire tension set to tight. Try loosening the tension and if that doesnt work check the eletrical wire that supplies the power to the roller and make sure it hasnt become disconected.

SOURCE: have a lincon 255Xt mig welder. You push the

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.

MIG wire is always hot without pulling trigger


Check your manual, there are a lot of mig units on the market that are alway "Live" alternatively, the relay has either shorted or you have wirering problem on the switch.

This fault is typical in most MIG/MAG Units. the feed roller/s need slackening off, pull the trigger so the rollers spin wire the wire not moving, turn the tensioning 1 turn check to see if the wire feeds, if not give a half turn on the tentioner repeat this half turn untill the wire feeds, bend the wire to the torch and pull the trigger, If the wire feeds then thats the correct setting. be awear of all safety rules. use gloves
