Hobart Welding Tools - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Lots of torches are fairly universal and you are likely to find it cheaper to replace only the parts needed if you can find them - manufacturers tend to prefer to sell the torch (or gun) complete with the hose, cables and sheath and they are expensive though considerable savings can be made dealing with factors or independent supplier/repairers.

Most professional mig welders over here use the euro torch and when a welder doesn't have one and the torch is ready for replacing it is a worthwhile modification, especially if the necessary parts can be sourced secondhand or salvaged.
The euro torch just plugs into the machine and once the machine has been modified there are plenty of usable secondhand ones about that can be had for a song.

If you aren't conversant with the euro torch, try a search...

It sounds like a relay is stuck closed. It could be on the control board. Call Miller welding and give them the model number and they will be able to help . Good luck

It’s close enough not to be able to answer that. The inrush current of a welder is huge anyway, so it could exceed the instantaneous capacity of the generator. However, it’s also possible with capacitance in the welder to smooth that out, that it will work fine. The only way to be sure is to test it. If you can’t do that before purchasing, it’s a risk you take. On balance it should work, but may not.

When the generator is not used orstorage for a long time, the residual magnets contained in the iron core are lost before leaving the factory, and the excitation coil cannot establish the proper magnetic field. At this time, the engine is running normally but no electricity is generated. This phenomenon is stored in the new machine and stored in the humid. There are more units in the environment or long-term use.
