Here are a couple of common issues:
- Check the tension on the despooler. Is it set too tight or is the wire feed tension not set correctly?
- Are you using .035” wire? We recommend .030″.
- Is your stickout too long? Your stickout should be no more than ½”.
- Make sure you are pulling the trigger on the MIG gun to begin welding.
- Make sure the ground is not attached to painted or coated metal.
