Today while I was welding I ran out of wire. I had been using flux core wire, so I didn't need gas. I decided to switch to solid wire and gas, so I hooked up the gas, switched the polarity for the gun, and did everything according to the book that came with the welder.
When I went to weld, I didn't hear any gas flowing from the mig gun and my weld had pinholes in I. So obviously no gas is flowing. when I hit the trigger the flow meter on the regulator goes down so gas is able to make it to the welder but not out the tip of the gun. I did not see any obvious signs of blockage anywhere so I have no idea what to do at this point. Any ideas?
