    miller 251

    I have a miller 251 welder that when I weld the gas keeps shutting off about every 5 seconds and it will come back on when I hit the trigger anybody know what is wrong with it. Thanks

    Do you have to replace the main board and is this something you can do yourself. Thanks

    I put meter on the wires going to gas solenid and the power is going off every 5 seconds.

    Seen lots of machines where the gas inlet screen is plugged with bits of teflon tape. Might be your problem. So the gun would get the inrush then go down to nothing. Retrigger and get the inrush again.

    Teflon tape is NOT supposed to be used on brass fittings as the saying goes "Brass seals brass".

    Miller has a feature where if u aren't welding it shuts the gas off so u don't waste gas when the trigger is pulled. Either u aren't welding, there is an issue with that sensor or the solenoid is bad.

    That is not the problem I have a old gun and I put it on and it does the same thing.
