SOURCE: can i use the spool roll of mig wire in a hobart

If it is a wire feed, yes. You just have to make sure what size and flux core or solid. Run flux core .035 4" spools. Or .030.

SOURCE: I have a hobart handler 120/90amp wire feed welder

I have welded countless hours with Linde & Lincoln & even a few Hobarts & the only time that I ever had the same problem was when the ground connection either to the object I was welding, or the welding cable ground wasn't good & clean & tight. Same on stick welders also. I did develop the habit of grinding not only where I was preparing to weld, but where I was placing my ground clamp & that always provided a better "frying bacon" sound as I went along the business of pushing a bead. In a welder, the only other thing than that is involved is the step-up transformer and your wire. Hope this helps.

Dont think you want to hook directly to 110 with the motor. I believe the motor runs on DC so I hooked up a battery charger to mine to see if motor was good.

Hobart handler 125 wire feed gears broken teeth. Have three teeth broken on plastic gear. Can I get replacement gears?


You are probably going to have to replace the complete assembly, and it is probably going to cost about $150. I would contact Hobart by phone with your serial #, and they should have the correct part# , since there is no parts list in your manual, and none seem to be available on line. BRwelders has part# 210010 listed but may not be correct, since it is for the 120.

My motor on my hobart handler 135 is not working to make the wheels roll to feed wire. I disconnected it at the connectors and tested it and was not getting any readings on my meter as if it was not g


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.

I have a hobart handler 150, i have it run through a 50 amp plugg in and breaker dont know if thats right because it wont weld the wire burns up to fast what should i do?


Try increasing the feed rate. Decrease voltage also. If still no luck, try checking the wire diameter. If you are using flux core wire, make sure the wire isn't too old and it hasn't been exposed to moisture. If you are using gas, make sure that the gas regulator is working properly. If so, then try getting closer to your work with the nozzle. Distance from your workpiece and wind can interrupt the gas shield, causing the wire to burn unshielded.

Weld will not weld at a steady speed, it will weld good for a minute then start sputtering like it not getting wire and will burn the wire into the tip


Hi:

I think you have a problem with either:

Gun liner which could be kinked and need to be replace, or,

Drive rolls, make sure you are using the right size and right type for the wire used.

If using hard wire (gas wire) you should be using U-grooved drive rolls, if using innershiedl wire then V-knurled drive rolls must be in place.

My Hobart handler 120 won't heat enough to weld. What are possible problems?


If you are using solid wire, you need to use a shielding gas like Carbon Dioxide or Argon. Otherwise you will not get *********** and the wire will leave random blobs.

If you are using flux cored wire, you do not need the shield gas as the core is producing the gas shield.

This should remedy it.
