Why did my welder stop feeding wire?

The wire can also fail to feed if the trigger switch is broken, or control leads in the gun cable are damaged. If this is the case, they will need to be replaced. If the drive rolls are turning but the wire is not feeding, it is usually caused by inadequate drive roll pressure or a blockage in the contact tip or liner.

What can happen if the feed roller tension is too tight?

Too tight deforms the wire, which creates more dust and metal shavings in the wire feeder, gun and liner, leading to blockages. Deformed wire affects feedability and wears out the liner and contact tip much sooner with saw-like edges as it passes through the liner and tip.

What can happen if the feed roller tension is too light?

Too Little Roller Tension If the tension is too light the rollers can slip and wire will not be fed through at the correct speed, or will feed erratically, potentially causing the wire to burn back on to the copper Tip at the end of the Mig Welders Torch.
