    Hi all, newbie here, I've recently purchased 2 welders one of which is a wolfweld. I went to use it toweld my car and I'm finding the wire speed knob isn't doing anything apart from full feed. What do I need to do to sort this fault out ? TIA

    Anyone ??
    I need to find out if it's worth changing the speed control knob or should I bin the whole thing ??

    I'm not sure that if you change the wire speed knob & potentiometer it will cure the fault, more likely it's a component on the printed circuit board. I can't help you as to what as I'm not savvy with electronics, but hopefully someone who is will be able to help.

    If you would post a photo of the pcb, it would give a better idea of what my be needed.

    Or possibly a wire after coming off the pot/board.open circuit would put the wire speed at full
