For some reason i have had some really SH#@Y luck this year with welding machines, but any way on with the problem. every time that i go to pull the trigger the machine will feed about a 1/16" of wire and then the machine will shut off and then turn back on within 30 seconds. any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated!
Wow... That's a crazy one.
First I would go to the Miller website.. Write down the Serial and model numbers of your power supply and then go to their bank of owners manuals... You may quickly find your problem in the trouble shooting guide.
They also have a Q&A section on thier webiste.. Believe me ... If it has happened to you... It has prolly happened to hundreds of others.
Hello bigrod, now a silly question from me. Does your machine have a spot/stitch or burnback control knob on it anywhere? If it is so equipped, I believe it is under the cover in the vicinity of the feed roll/drive motor area. If you do have these features on your machine take a look at the settings of them. This is likely not the answer, but worth taking a look at. Best regards, Allan
The spot/stitch, burnback, run-in and a couple of other features are in the hidden menu. This menu is accessed by depressing the trigger and then turning the machine on. The procedure is listed on the info cards on the front of the machine also.
I use a 252 daily and like the machine. I have never encountered his problem.
Sounds to me like you need to check the incoming power supply. Is the circuit feeding the machine up to providing the peak amps the machine needs?
miller told me that it was the pc boards and that i would have to send it in
thats kinda what i thought too!
