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.
