    I have a sealey 195 mig welder and it will feed out wire for 3-4 seconds at a time I’m guessing it has some sort of timer to spot / stitch weld. How do I change or turn it off. I’d like it so I don’t have to keep re-pressing the switch to continue welding?

    There are a couple of versions of the 195,

    Both have 2 round knobs, the upper one has a figure of 8 above it, that's the wire speed.
    The other is the spot weld timer.

    On one version turning the timer all the way anti clockwise turns it off.

    On the other, there is a flick switch between the 2 dials, that turns it on/off.

    If that's not right for your welder then post a photo of it

    On my newly acquired Murex, the spot timer function was controlled by a potentiometer with a built in off switch however the "off" bit broke so it was constantly on. As a temporary fix, I just cut the feed to the off switch. I may try and source a replacement or I might bypass it and just put a toggle switch on it.

    It may be something similar if you can't turn it off.

    It's the bottom knob of those 2 top ones.
    Turn it all the way to the left and see if that helps.

    I think there should be a slight click when it goes all the way to the left and that click switches the timer off.
