    What you are saying is that when the foot pedal is plugged in it overrides the controller on the torch.

    Assuming that the controller component in the torch, maybe a variable resistor, is the same as that in the foot pedal then it would appear as though when the metal piece cut through the cable it shorted out the wires and fried something common to both the foot control and torch control.

    That is most like a controller circuit board but is troubleshooting that within your capabilities.

    Keep in mind I am taking a guess at this because I do not know that specific machine, but I am an electronics technician.

      I told the guy what happened and sent in the foot cable. ends up that it fried the circuit board in the welder! wow. I was surprised that they dont install some sort of safety device for this.

      anyways they are going to replace the circuit board under warranty so i guess thats all that really matters.

      good to know that miller stands behind there products in a scenario like this
