  • Problem with Lincoln Pro- Core 100

    Just bought a Pro- Core 100 Mig Welder. It is used and i cannot get it to feed wire. Everything seems to work but it just doesn't feed it. You can hear the click but it doesn't feed. Anyone knows anything lemme know thanks

    Should of went to lincoln but they do'nt have a message board so i had to come to the next best place

    thanks

      Trade it in for something blue!

      Check to see if the feeder motor is getting voltage when you hit the trigger. If it is then it may be the motor.

      Are the rollers turning?

      If they are then it may be a liner issue.

        Mike is right, open up the case, look to see if the rollers are turning.
        If it is, check the tension adjustment, may be too tight, go the wire pinched or something. Your wire on the tip might be fused, take off the tip...
        Nah, just sell it and buy blue!!! After you try that, like Mike said, maybe someone stepped on the cord and bent the liner...

            I have had the same problem with my pro core. Just turn the wire speed knob back and forth a few times and it should start feeding wire. Worked for me when I had it lol
