It could be one of several things but the first thing I would check would be the ground cable. Look at the cable where it is crimped at the clamp and the attachment to the clamp itself. If this is loose and/or corroded it will cause a loss of welding current due to a lack of proper grounding. If this is the problem you may notice the cable becoming hot at this connection almost as soon as you start to weld so after welding for a short time check and see if it is getting hot.
