In the past, for me anyways, it has meant poor product condition, ( oil,dirt, rust ect) or a poor connection to the product through ground clamp.
Also, on some occasions I have seen it happen when steel has pickeling on it. thats the greyish colored coating most steel such as angle iron or box tubing has on it when new. Sanding it off has cured that as well.
I suppose low heat setting could cause it as well, but my assumption is you have propably already tried to change the heat and speed settings.
