I can't seem to get the welder dialed in and any tips would be appreciated. I used a ss wire brush to clean the area. I am using the recommended settings on the welder for amperage and wirespeed. The flow is set to 30. I am using a push technique with the tip around 3/4" away and a small angle opposite of travel. Using a Hobart with spool gun. I used to get smooth flowing welds that looked good. The wire is a few years old. Could the wire be oxzidized? Not getting the spray transfer hiss, kind of popping sound. I can't dial in to the problem, technique, gas coverage, settings? Thanks for any input.

We had some wrongly stamped Bernard contact tips that said .045 but were .035 in actuality.
