Not sure if this is the problem your having,,,BUT,,, on my welder one time the roll of wire got a light coating of rust on it from moisture and from not being used in a while so the wire wouldn't slide through the cable to the handle (it would stick) so sometimes it would weld and other times it just hissed. Also, if the cable that the wire slides through gets kinked the wire won't slide either. I ended up taking the handle apart and cleaning the cable and I found a kink that I straightened and it works like new again
