    (1) Is it under warranty? (2) Did you do any troubleshooting, like is the gas solenoid clicking but the motor is not running (maybe the gun trigger is bad) or are you just "Easter egging" a fix? (3) Did you contact Hobart service? This website, and the responsiveness of the Hobart people were a big influence in my choosing Hobart products over the competition.

      As Blacksmith stated, there may something other than the motor itself. Even if your unit is not under warranty and you still have issues you can call our Tech. Service number, 1-800-332-3281, and Keith, Bill, or Dave can help you figure out whats going on before you purchase a part that you may or may not need. They are available 7:00 - 5:00 EST.

        the gas solenoid is clicking and i jumped the trigger over to make sure that was not the problem, the wire feed motor is not even trying to turn

          You can try to power drive motor directly with 12V battery. If it runs it is good.

          Speed control electronics can fail and be replaced by new ones. Hobart Experts will tell you how to do this.

            Make sure that the voltage control knob is not between ranges as this will cause the motor to not get any power.

              Oh, yeah. How many times has that happened? Good advice.

                  Glad to hear you solved your problem without spending any money. Look at the bright side; now you know what's inside. I haven't made this mistake yet, but I darn sure know what MIG looks like with no gas after forgetting to turn on the gas TWICE.
