I have a 2008 Pipepro 304. I was having trouble adjusting the VA adjust to get to the right volts and amps when it was set on stick welding. I replaced the control board because the knobs were rusted and would not adjust because the machine has set on the back of my rig since I have had it. Now that I have replaced the control board, I am not able to adjust the VA adjust to the right volts and amps when it it set on spool or stick. What else could be causing my problem?
It was the display board I replaced and the knobs. Whenever I fire up my welder to weld, it's either burning too hot or too cold. For example, if I set it on 85 amps its welding more like 120 amps. It's doing this on all processes mig, tig etc.
Its actually a toughy to diagnose, though the lem/Hall device tells the diplay board what the amperage is. It may very well be that your not used to the new proramming on the display board. Really you should take it into a repair shop, let them load it and see indeed if the amperage is out to lunch
