My mig machine is not feeding wire.

I have a Lincoln 135 welder. I was welding the quarter today and machine stop feeding the wire. This happen before but later on it was fine. Today stopped again and tought it is overlooded and I stop welding. Later I tried again and no luck.
What would have happened. Wire feed motor gone or what?
This pissed me pe off because I was going nice on the quarter and hooping to finish it today.

have you opened the door and inspected the wire feed? is there a birdnest present? is the wire melted to the electrode at the tip of the torch? When is the last time you put a new liner in your gun?
