Wire feed welder not feeding

I have a Century wire feed welder model #117-052-003 (110V). The wire feed does not feed when trying to weld. It feeds normally when not welding but as soon as I get the arc it quits. Any suggestion as to what the problem may be?

I would go to the Century site, and then contact CUSTOMER SERVICE. Now if you have the manual, maybe it will give you a hint. Customer service is probably your best GOOD advise.

Does the drive wheel stop turning or does it loose traction and spin on the wire.

There are a few things that can cause spinning on the wire, wrong drive wheel, lack of pressure on the wheel, worn contact tip, dirty liner, etc.
