I have a Hobart handler 175 mig i bought about 4 years ago or so. I am a total novice, not even using gas yet...lol. I used it very little. One day i went to use it , turned it on, it powered up, but did not feed any wire. I checked everything(tip too) and it wouldn't work. I opened the door and fiddled with it. Not for sure what is going on. I admit, i didn't take the greatest care of it in hind sight. Meaning.....it sat on the floor in the corner, and got a little dusty. I have read something since about how you have to keep them clean inside and out...my bad. Can that cause a problem? I really only used it around 20 times...but of course, the warranty is long gone i believe. There is 2 welder service centers fairly close...but i'm affraid when i take it, they are going to say it's hundreds of dollers to fix..ouch! any help or ideas and i would gladly be in debt...you know what i mean...lol!
