  • Noob to millermatic 35, need help

    Hello all,

    Let me first start by saying I'm glad to join the ranks of you guys with my first miller welder. Ive been welding with a no name (china) brand 220 mig for about 5 years now and got a good deal on my 1986 black faced millermatic 35.

    Now I bought in non operational state. When I got it, It had some nasty wire in it and the gun and liner were shot. I barrowed a gun with a new liner in it and bought some new .35 wire and thing was welding great for about 5 welds.

    Now the drive rollers are just spinning on the wire. I can take the spool off and the rod that holds the spool doesn't spin when I hit the trigger (i'm told its supposed to).

    Does this sound like the problem? I'm really excited about my new machine just getting disappointed as I can seem to figure it out. Hopefully you guys can help me (im not sure tech savy, so go easy on me). Thanks a lot guys!
