    What does that mean, even assuming you meant "put down the wire?"

    Did it work previously? Did it work with a different wire? What is different between now and the last time it did what it was supposed to do?

      yes i ment put down the wire lol. I haven't used the wire settings until the last month or so. i does seem less than it was doing when i first switched to fcaw-g box says run it on positive. weld seems to get hotter an inch up on a 3/8 or so weld smoking hot 3 inches up on a 6 inch vertical. cc mode same way. almost have to stop so hot but starts cold

          never ran solid wire through it. just different grades of dual shield wire 71a75 and 71a85 on 75-25 and 85 -15 gas. when it runs. dual shield is supposed to have that hiss but sounds like frying eggs

                    So then the problem is? If the welds look good or it is just because it sounds funny?...Bob
