  • Welcome to the MillerWelds.com Discussion Forums

    This is a place to discuss welding and related topics. It provides a place for welders to connect with one another and harness the collective intelligence of the welding community to finish a project, share best practices, troubleshoot your application and get practical, hands-on welding advice.

    If your question is about a specific process or piece of equipment, it’s helpful to provide as much detail as possible in your post – material and thickness, model name and number, serial number, or even upload a photo of your machine or your work. Have you first read the manual for your particular model? (Download Manuals)

    If you require a direct response from Miller, please use the Contact Us page [http://www.millerwelds.com/service/contactus.html].

    All people and points of view are welcome! But please remember to be respectful to others when you post.

    Full terms of use are here [http://www.millerwelds.com/about/terms.html], and if you have any questions or comments, please send them to forum@millerwelds.com.

      If you have a technical question it is best to post the problems you are having with the unit and please post a serial#, so that we (Miller CST welder techs) can go to the private tech sites, be it Miller, Lincoln, or where ever and pull up the correct diagrams.

      This is a free service to you, so give us as much information as you can. May save you alot of coin.

        This is sad... I really enjoyed one of the most epic threads about a Millermatic because of the variety of technical inputs...

          "AND NEW RULES, ONCE A TECH HAS LATCHED ON TO A THREAD ABOUT A SPECIFIC TECHNICAL PROBLEM, NO OTHER TECHS SHOULD/WILL INTERFERE WITH THE LOGIC OF THE ORIGINAL TECH"

          Lots of changes around here lately.... not all of them positive..... The original forum was named "AskAndy"........ now I guess you want to call it ask cruizer???
          while I have a lot of respect for his expertise... he is by no means infallable.... a large portion of the value of this forum has been the technical exchange and give and take......coupled with the vast pool of experience to be drawn upon from the members..


          truly sad.......

          would very much like some "official" word on this.......

            official rule

            The official rule is:

            Anyone with technical knowledge about the OP subject matter has a right to share his/her advice.

            As most of you know, there are many avenues to attack a technical problem.

            A-

              No not official, It just when I had pretty much figured out what was wrong with the Millermatic in question and many other machines, everybody jumped in to resolve it and usually pushes the OP farther away from the original problem. So if H80 or Duane jumps in, I'll leave it alone and watch as all the stories unfold. so instead of what could of been 8 posts, it turned into 130 posts.

                          Hi I just bought a 1995 miller syncrowave 250 with the water cooled torch. The problem that I have is that it has no arc with when I use the tig or the stick. The hf is defenitly not working I checked the spark gap and cleaned them up but I think I have a bigger problem. Does anybody have a idea on what it is or how to trouble shoot it?

                              Hey from Southern Ky

                              I just joined the forum---- I am a woodworker from southern Ky who does a little machine/welding on the side. Most of my welding is on our own stuff.
                              I joined the site to find out more info about the X-mode setting on my new Miller Elite helmet. The instructions are real weak on the subject. I have a Miller 180 auto-set mig welder. I saw a post on another site from a guy who says he does all his welding with his helmet set on X-mode.

                              Thanks
