In case anybody else ever has this fault, its the gas solenoid, ... where the gas pipe goes into the welder there is a solenoid just inside the welder case, I gave it a gentle tap with screwdriver handle whilst gas was stuck on ..... and bingo .... all working fine again .... so I'm going to order a new solenoid .... thanks
