  • Econotig Troubles

    Hello all, looking for help, I have a Miller Econotig, Serial No. KD438100. Something went out on it, when powered up, fan and lights and contacts work, but minimal unadjustable weld power, actually it won't weld, just arc lightly. The 4 settings of AC high and low and DC pos and neg, seem to work, I could tell the subtle difference, even with the lack of oomph. Does not matter if it is set on tig or stick, same issue, so I'm doubting that it's the potentiometers, one in foot switch, one on panel, but I don't know. I'm not good with electronics, but I am capable of fixing it if I knew the part to get. HELP! And thank you in advance to anyone that may be able to help.

    Since I'm green here, I'm not even sure if I'm posting in the right place
