    Default Bad Bwe Hood

    Last year i bought a new Miller BWE, it was great untill a couple of months ago
    when it stopped going light when not welding. I turn it on, off, no clear when on. I haven't bitcked yet but I'm back to the 5 yr old HF $49 autodark which has never failed!!

    Has anyone else had this problem???

    Not familiar with that model, but it sounds like a battery issue, = power req'd to operate.

    Are you speaking English? What do you mean by "no clear when on." Do you mean *****ed, when you said bitcked? Come on, welders have a reputation for being metal heads, but don't help the cause.
