    Kevin,
    Here are some pictures of the welder I need information on. I will have to replace the cord end, so I will need to open it up and while I am doing that I can verify it was the correct wired connections if I had a wiring diagram/manual.

    Default Airco EasyArc AC/DC 250 & supply wire to outlet

    I purchased an Airco EasyArc AC/DC 250, Serial # MH402092, Stock Number 1341 0280 but I cannot find any documentation for it anywhere. I am hoping it is also a Miller product but I fear it may not be because the serial number seems to be in a slightly different format than what the lucky others have posted!

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I have searched the Internet pretty thoroughly hoping to find a manual or at least some information about the maker and age of my welder.

    Thanks,
    Kevin
    If anybody can help me until I locate a manual I will be very grateful. I need to know what kind / size wire I need to use to wire from my 200 amp service to my 220 volt outlet. The outlet will be approx 35 feet from the service.

    My best guess is #6 AWG but that may be over buying. I really do not wish to guess about something this important! Again, any help is appreciated.

    Kevin

    If your not turning the welder up that would be fine probably... I'll let you know when I try it on my Easy Arc. I also have to change the input wire on mine and I will use 6AWG, but I'm only going to go maybe 6-10ft.

    It states on the sticker 100Amps for 230V with the rating at 250A 50% duty cycle, so it will be possible to trip the 50A breaker if the welder is turned up.

    At least that is my guess. I will find out for sure when I try it on my shops 50A breaker after I change the cable and connector on mine.

    Thanks Clint738. I look forward to hearing how your tests work out. I have not done any of the wiring (obviously) so I can go with a larger breaker or wire if the situation demands it.

    Kevin,

    With the serial number you provided I figured that is was not a Milller unit but I went through my cross reference chart and had another tech double check his as well to confirm. The unit you have there was not made by Miller Electric.

    Sorry I could not be of more assistance with this.

    It may be that the Easy Arc was made by Mid-States Manufacturing. They had a MST-160 which people have said is just like the AIRCO Tri-Arc 160. Same polarity/process switch handle as the Easy Arc. I believe they were bought by AIRCO. Maybe ESAB has a manual.
