Question about Hobart Handler 140 Mig Welder
The numbers on the motor is S3009E/00504
Make sure the trigger switch is applying power to the motor. If there is no reading when you checked for OHMS then the motor is open. You'll have to get a new one.

to a heat sink or some of the older units had a relay
in-line with a fuse , I have a older Hobart and it is
a great little welder. If you snap a pic of the P.C.
board and email it ill email@example.com

This happens to me all the time. Wear and tear has taken its toll and everything has to be maintained for it to work. Most likely the welding tip is worn and should be replaced. Lincoln electric tips work well and I will replace mine several times during the day. Also check your tension and make sure the wire will uncoil freely from the spool. You can remove the tip and make sure the wire will feed without it. If not, your liner may be worn out. Also a welding Jell will help keep the tip from cloging. It will still happen, but hopefully not on your first weld of the day.
