    Hi,

    I haven't used my mig for years and on getting it out to do a small job the wire feed has stopped working. I was having a few issues before I put it away with wire birds nests so was going to treat it to a new liner. But unless I can get the wire feeder working it would seem pointless. Any help or suggestions much appreciated.

    Possibly corrosion in the spade connectors feeding the drive motor.

    I'll give it a try tomorrow and see if it helps. Thanks for the idea. I have looked for loose wires and any signs of electrical items burnt but haven't tried cleaning the connectors.
