    Bored, need a problem I actually can't figure out

    I agree that it senses the 230 but I figured the 24v supplied to the circuitry is still the same and the voltage to the motor wouldn't know the difference. That's why I thought changing PC1 would fix it. There isn't much else in there. Any other suggestions? I figured this would a tough one to figure out.

            Didn't open it up, it's Autoline and came with a pig tail, thought all I had to do to hook it up for 230 single phase was to hook black and white to hot and green to nutral/ground and cut/tape back red. I used it for 1-1/2 years that way.

              Yes, but how is it wired INSIDE the machine. Seen lots of machines miswired by..... somebody.

              They do seem to work that way, but eventually something goes poof.

                Missed that, it's on a cart. Like I said, I checked all the grounds from the outlet to the welder frame. The other strange part is that it works every time after turned on and the first time the trigger is pulled. I thought of taking it to a service center but just didn't want to give it up for someone to strip apart. It's still a great welder. I appreciate you taking the time.

                  If it is wired wrong inside it was not by me, time will tell. It's in the shop for repairs now. I'll open it up when I get it back.
                  What would you say is a reasonable amount of time for a repair shop to look at a welder?
                  I have a new dynasty 350 should I open it up and check the internal wiring on that?

                    Well, All I can figure out since you've changed out the board, is that something is charging and staying charged after you hit the trigger for the first time, so a arc strike relay is comming on and staying on. I'm wondering if you were to temporarily (just for fun) remove the ground wire from the machine and retry it.

                      No this was just a problem with the 200 series. i've seen lots of them from the rental outfits wired up all funny (new ones miswired by somebody, no names here...)

                      As for warranty, up to 2 weeks max

                        Thanks, I'll be on the phone Monday. What ever the internals are wired up for idk, it came out of a new sealed Miller box.
                        Thanks Kevin

                            Well, as the serial goes its a 1970, and yes the distributor will just pull out with a couple twists. Really want to make sure that the rotor turns to the SAME place on the new one. It's just old and the o rings on the dist shaft are likely kinda hardened, thats why its a b,,itch to pull out.

                            And just incase someone turns the engine over or it moves, its ALWAYS best to turn the engine so that its on #1 TDC. Before you pull the distributor. that way you have a reference point to go back to.

                                It's a flat head anyways, so yard the head.
