Try replacing the feed tip as this is an insulator that keeps the wire from touching the tip as it feeds out. These tips need replacing often as they also provide a friction free surface for the feed wire.

Repair mig welder


Control circuit failure or blown fuse on low voltage power supply. Look for 24VAC transformer. If that is OK follow to the trigger contactor and see if it is disconnected, burnt, etc.

MY CLARKE WELD 235 TEN TURBO ARC WELDER HAS SUDENLY STARTED BLOWING FUSES WHEN IT ARCS UP ANY IDEA


More then likely you have a shorted component (positive or hot wire to ground). Verify that the gun/trigger assembly is in good shape and has no broken wires that are touching the ground or case (may have to disassemble). Thats the easiest thing to check, everything else is inside the unit and will take more sophisticated knowledge and equipment to diagnose.

Will not arc


Check ground connection at welder along with your ground clamp. Bad connection could be the issue. Also check settings on your welder.

I have a craftman mig 110v mig welder arc problem


Check to make sure the contact is not touching the nozzle of the mig welder. This would definitely short it out!

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.
