It could be just the simple problem of the trigger not working. Disconnect the trigger wires from the machine at the plug at the front of the machine. See if you can manually trigger the machine by placing a piece of bent over mig wire onto the contacts. If the machine does trigger from this then your fault is in the torch somewhere. It could be the trigger (which commonly does fault from a dusty environment) which is easily replaced by going into any welding store with the torch model number (magnum 250L), or it could possibly be that a trigger wire has broken from the torch being damaged

I have a Lincoln power mig 216 and as soon as you strike an arc on metal my feed wire either kinks or breaks at the feed rollers and starts rolling out the side I have replaced the tip, liner and diffuser

Are there any kinks in the feed line from the spool to the tip that is causing the wire to not feed? Cut a length of wire and pull it though the feed line to see if there is a lot of friction in it, that would prevent wire feed. Finally, check the wire size - I know, but it is worth checking just in case.

Wont start just click.

Even after charging the battery or jumping? Do you know where the starter is located and what it looks like? Round, 3 wires coming out of the top, located under the engine at the rear. Check these wires and make sure they are secure. Located on top of the starter is the selonoid which causes the starter to engage. With the vehicle in park, emergency brake applied, have someone try starting it while you lay underneath. Listen for a clikcking to come from the seloniod. Can put your hand on it and feel the click too. If you get a strong click, but the starter does not engage, you may have a bad starter. Not too hard to change out but take battery cables off 1st! Also change the seloniod if you take the starter off. You do not want to do this twice so easier to make sure both parts are new. GT

I have a power MIG 216 and when you set the wire speed and start welding it changes speed and is not consistent...I've watched the drive system while a friend welds and it stays consistent, just not at...

Potentially, I would tighten tension on the feed wheels slightly first and see if this improves it. Also blow out the cabinet on a periodic basis as debris can also build up in the knurlings of the feed wheels. If it does not, pull out the liner and check it for kinks or other damage.

I have a Lincoln 215 mig which seems to have lost much of its power. What was adequate heat at setting "D" now has to be setting "G". Does anyone know the likely cause and how much it...


Before you rush to send your machine to be fix, let's do a little troubleshooting:
Weak voltage can happen due to different problems:

1) Check your ground cable first, if your terminals are "blueish" or with signs of taking too much heat, replace them including your ground clamp.

2) Check you contact tip on the gun and tip holder these must be tight and free from spatter.

3) Check your plug at gun connection also must be tight.

If everything looks good to your eye, then check your invoice all lincoln units have 3 year warranty. Check you local welding supplier if they don't have a direct relationship with Lincoln then take your machine to your local Praxair location and they will contact Lincoln for you. Probably all you pay is the shipping.

Hello, my son 2001 f150 supercrew 4x4 will not start, I think it is the starter selonoid. Does this make and model have starter seloniod separate from the starter. I remember a ford that had the selonoid...

If it is not the ignition fuse, that is what I would think it was. There might also be a bad connection to the starter as well. Make sure the wires are correct and everything is grounded. If all that checks out, try the starter selonoid. If you have a question, write back. Thanks for using FixYa.

Makes clicking noise when we turn key we replaced seloniod and now we cant get nothing out of it it wont click and it wont turn over what did we do wrong weve did it before and it worked fine

check all electrical connections between battery and starter both positive and ground, also check battery condition and charge, If the seloniod has three posts on it jump the positive side of the battery where it connects to selonoid across to the small center terminal of the selonoid and this will cause the electromagnetic unit to to send power to the starter, if this proves unsuccessfull, use a jumper cable to jump the battery 12v power directly to the large electrical terminal on the starter itself, this will spin the starter motor but might not engage the gear drive
