    Start by reading the manual and seeing where the manufacturer believes the wear parts are.

    Then stay on top of how it behaves over time. Any time the machine seems odd, stop and check.

    Depending on how you use it, you may have to replace the liner from time to time. Or just the tip after you get to close to the work.

    Not necessarily mike837, maybe she has a MIG welder she plans on welding deer together with. Wouldn't be the first time.
    Jenni, if you were to mention which particular MIG welder you have, then there is most likely some members on here that have that same machine and can give you some firsthand knowledge/advice about the maintenance of your machine and what to look out for. But other than that, what mike said above about it, is a good idea to follow. Read the manual thoroughly, along with the troubleshooting guide in the back. When something does not seem quite right with the way it is operating, then stop and try to determine what the problem is rather than hoping it will fix itself if you keep going.

    treating it like you like to be treated ought to work. you know, set it near the fireplace at night, while you read a magazine/tv, etc. also after you do your hair/makup in the morning, go rub the machine down w/ a terry cloth. After you eat, make sure it still has a fresh roll of wire in it, clean tip, etc., they like attention like anyone else, but also enjoy their own privacy at times. don't ever tease or turn the machine on, unless your going to use it

    Blow the dust out of it every now and again
    Change the tips, nozzles and liner as they wear out. That's about it. Pretty easy

    Change contact tips when necessary, change gas nozzle when it gets worn down, blow out the liner before you put a new roll of wire in. Every year or so, unplug machine, pull the cover off and blow out all the dust.
