welder help

I needed to change the spool on my lincoln welder -mig pack 100 . When you put the new spool in and thread it through how are you supposed to get the rest of the wire from the previous spool out of the wand? I cant get the new wire loaded through with the remaining old still there and I cant find the owners manual and the lincoln site wont load in my computer. Thanks in advance.

Release the tension on the drive roll and take a pair of pliers grab the wire sticking out of the gun and pull. Should come right out then just start your new wire in the liner, tighten the drive roll and pull the trigger.

Welder help?

Hi What i can see from your post is that you need help to load new wire. 1- you will need to cut the wire just befor the welders wire spool and before the locking drive wheel.
2- open lock an pull the wire out of gun.
3- now set new wire spool into welder an thread wire between the drive wheels an tension lock
4- now turn on wilders electric an pul the trigger til the wire comes out the end
If i gave you any help fixen your mess good luck now keep sparking

I would remove the tip (inside the end of the gun) and pull the wire out. Those tips are designed to be replacable, so that should be the easiest.
If that doesn't work, try removing the tip and pushing the old wire (where it goes into the drive wheels ) until you can grab it at the tip end.
I have tried removing the liner (what the wire runs through in the cable that goes to the gun ), but never had a lot of success getting it out without damaging the liner.
Good Luck.

If you pull the wire from the roller end DON"T FORGET to snip the burned end of the wire at the tip first. There is usually a ball that has formed from the last weld and if this is pulled into the liner it will cause damage or cause the wire to become stuck so tight you may have to replace the liner (if you manage to get it past the tip). If you pull it from the tip end(recomended) remove the tip first then snip the wire at the roller end before pulling because sometimes there will be a kink in the last inch or so of wire as it came from the spool. This kink is not as bad as the ball that forms on the other end and can usually be pulled through without too much difficulty but it can damage the liner so it should be cut off before removing the wire, bottom line is ALWAYS to snip the end of the wire opposite the end you are pulling from.Always remove the tip before feeding the new wire into the liner because the sharp end of the wire will often snag on the bottom edge of the tip when it reaches it causing the wire to stall which could lead to "birdnesting" if the rollers are tight.
