View Full Version : Handler 135 not working
05-04-2008, 05:19 PM
A friend let me borrow the Hobart Handler 135 he just bought from another guy. I went to use it the other day and it didn't work. It came on and the wire feed worked but when I went to weld I got no arc. Everything looks to be connected and clean...yes I had it grounded. Another friend suggested the points are dirty. Does this sound right and if so where do I find the points and how do I clean them? I'm brand new to this so any help would be appreciated.

Make sure volt switch is on detent for volt setting and not in between.

I don't see a volt switch. It's only 115 v. There is a reset button in the back and I tried pushing that but it already seems like it's in.

Roger means the voltage knob on the front of the machine above the wire feed adjustment. Make sure it is pointing at one of the numbers, not half way in between two numbers.

Oh, I got it now. It was set, I even changed it to different settings. Thanks for the replies guys. Any other ideas?
