When not welding, the wire feeds fine at all speeds. As soon as you start welding the wire feed motor stops turning. It will go again until you start welding with it. Any ideas on this problem?

Thanks in advance.

Too much back pressure for turbo to spool up?

LOL

Anyways been messing with it and I have noticed with the help of a friend that the wheels are still trying to feed the wire while welding but it seems that the wire is just slipping between the wheels. The pressure screw is screwed in all the way. I am guessing the wheels are bad. Anyone know where I can get some new feed wheels?

...or that the wire drive wheel is for a different wire thickness...(like .035 wheel, and you are trying to push.024).:)
