Question about Century Welding Tools
That sounds like a direct short short to me. My mig has 1 nylon guide tube,one in front of the feed wheel and one just before it inters the liner.They are both insulating the drive wheel from the wire.If the teeth marks are deep enough they will act like a saw and cut right through the nylon tubes and short out on something.You may need a new liner ,the liner is carrying the current instead of the wire.That may be problem. Thank You for choosing FixYa.com
In addition to guiding the wire, the back end of the liner, shown here, contains o-rings and seals to ensure the shielding gas doesn't escape the gun cable.

Code help-3 Indicates that the gun trigger was pulled and held during power up. Release gun trigger and clear fault condition. Also, this display can Indicate no open circuit voltage detected when gun trigger is pulled and no arc detected within 3 seconds, this means that the trigger was held without any metal contact. The machine will shut down in order to avoit the wire to continue to run freely.
Turn on the machine without pressing the trigger on the gun. Then increase to the max the wire speed. Then turn off the machine. Press the trigger after the machine was turn off, then without releasing the trigger, turn on the machine and release the trigger after 2 seconds. That will take care of it.
