    Gave it to you??

    You made out like a bandit...

    if that suitcase feeder came with it..

    you have a complete BULLETPROOF... single phase MIG setup..

    http://www.millerwelds.com/om/o201f_mil.pdf

    270 Amps @ 35% Duty Cycle...

    should be able to strap the input for 230vac single phase..

    (wants a 50Amp breaker for full output)

        what type of parts??........

        very little to go wrong in the power supply and other than the big inductors... most parts should be generic off the shelf capacitors, diodes etc..

        on the suitcase... what model is it..??

            Flooded...??.. oooo that makes it more interesting...

            First...pull the covers and see what the insides look like ...

            I would refer to the manual and make sure it is strapped for the proper voltage in your shop.. check connections, fuses etc..make sure it is actually getting the right power... also troubleshooting tips in the back of the book..

            also there is an internal contactor that is controlled by the contactor control receptacle on the front panel... would check that circuit too..

            it did look very clean from your pics....

              Water shouldn't hurt it much, but yes take it apart and pull the greables out of it. I pressure wash units, hasn't been a problem as long as its dryed out. So you've change the power input to yours right. Now the unit will not supply any output till a feeder is hooked up

                  Look at section 3-5 Contactor control on page 8

                  http://www.millerwelds.com/om/o201f_mil.pdf

                  Gotta have contactor closure to have welder output..

                      Did you read the other replies? You need to have the feeder hooked up to close the contactor to get output.

                      Did you download the manual?

                      Did you check that the unit is set up for your input voltage?

                        Let's take a different approach.... Now bear with me...................

                        What model and serial number is the suitcase feeder..?? pictures..

                        The power supply will NOT function without having the feeder (or reasonable electrical equiv/jumper) connected..... they are interconnected and interdependent .... special connectors that provide power to the feeder and connect/actuate the feeder

                        so...... lets check out the feeder

                        and if all looks good we might plug int the two smaller cables (115v & Contactor) into the front panel of the power supply and see what happens..

                          Ok I plugged the feeder in and it dose noting it keeps blowing the 10amp fuse on the welder, the feeder is a millermatic 80A serial number is JA435820,

                            Guess you did not read ALL of my last post...

                            the part about checking out the feeder BEFORE plugging it into the power supply..

                            I usually check things out first... I'm not brave enough to go straight to the SMOKE TEST..

                            here is the manual for the feeder

                            http://www.millerwelds.com/om/o1038c_mil.pdf

                            I would open the covers and do a visual check of the feeder...

                            check the condition of the cables... a damaged/shorted 115v cable or connector will instantly blow F1 on the power supply..(not unusual on old well used equipment)

                            and READ the feeder manual...
