  • Older Hobart Handler. Hungry family needs help

    I have an older hobart handler 90 amp. It turns on. But when I pull the trigger. All I hear I hear is a loud Clack sound and nothing happens. The spool does Not turn or feed. I don't have a gas bottle hooked up. I removed the weld wire and still nothing. I tried to contact the tip with some scrap metal. Can some one help me. Thank you!! JMP

    It would help if we knew what model Handler you have. Hobart has produced a number of Handler products over the years. If you post more specifics about the welder, stock/serial number, etc., it would be helpful for someone to chime in to help. If you would like to talk to a live person, Bill, Keith, and Dave in our Tech. Support Dept. can help as well, 1-800-332-3281. If at all possible, have your stock and serial number available.

      Check to make sure that your voltage selection switch isn't set in between ranges or set to Purge. It must be set securely to position 1,2,3, or 4.
