        Standard trigger

        Typically used with
        a remote amperage con-
        trol device. Standard trigger provides non-contact start in DC Im-
        pulse TIG mode. It also enables Lift-Arc start, with a remote control
        in Lift- Arc mode

                2% same as I always use. Just trying to get it to ark. Took a piece of steel, ground it clean. grounded good.

                      So now you have someplace to start. If you can get a TIG arc in Lift then maybe it's a switch issue. Sounds like a call Miller time.

                        You'll be able to lift arc without a remote plugged in, but without a remote, you won't be able to "impulse". So quite possible a failed remote., or the remote connector not wiggled all the way in as I see so many times on service calls.
