Strange Liquid in Welder


I have a cheapish wire-feed welder that I honestly don't use very much. But I used it about a month ago to fix a broken office chair (and so far so good!). When I was using it, I started to notice some dark liquid sort of leaking out. I opened it up and the stuff was all over the place. Any ideas what this is? I'm 95% sure nothing spilled on to it.

I had a service tech tell me once that that was " Cheap Chinese Grease", let it burn off and if it still works afterwards, GOOD, if no work after, junk it and buy American made.


Well I learned that you get what you pay for.
