    I had this problem a while back, and due to the cost, it wasn't worth repairing. So if the machine is still under warranty take it in. otherwise, I believe you've lost your pc1 board and boost board. Big bucks

    Tested leads on another machine and they work fine.
    When I try to stick weld the amp meter reads about 6 to 7 amps at about 30 volts. when I stick the rod the volts drop to 1 or 2 volts and the amps go to about 35...

    Thanks for the feed back. So far I have no results.
    Next I will take off all leads and try to stick weld.

    Because to have no reported error code, I'd go for Ground clamp, and/ or failed torch. (broken cable conduit.

    Thats the way it will behave if you forget to put your ground clamp on.

    Check your ground.

    I have had some weird things happen when the foot pedal plug wasn't connecting good.

    I think I would try setting it to remote and use scratch start or lift start and bypass the foot pedal. You can also reset back to factory default.

    Sorry I can't provide any real help, just fishing here.
