  • spoolgun not triggering gas flow

    I have a millermatic 200 with the spoolmatic 1. Everything works fine except the gas wont flow when you pull the trigger. Any ideas?

      well i can trigger the gas with the regular mig gun and feel it coming out of the spoolgun, but the spoolgun itself won't trigger the gas to come on.

          Yes, gas valve seems to be fine. The gas just doesn't send from the main unit, so it doesn't even make it that far.

              Yes, the wire feeds with the trigger.

                has this setup been working and is now malfunctioning...?? or are you just setting it up..??

                Are you running through BOTH gas valves..??? that does not seem right

                all the spoolgun setups I can think of... hook directly to the gas regulator on the bottle and use only the spoolgun trigger valve... ignoring the gas solenoid in the welder..

                could you post some pics of your hookup pls...??
