    Default millermatic 135 drive motor info

    I need to know the following about the drive motor in the mm135:
    -amps
    -volts
    -torque
    -stall speed
    -shaft size

    If any one can help me out it would be greatly appreciated.

    hmm, motor assemblys are cheap. for that info, take yours apart.

    This is true, but Miller missed the boat on this one. The motor is underpowered and sub par quality. Why buy another assembly when im going to get another sub par drive motor in return? My thought process is to replace the drive motor with one of higher quality and more torque.

    Buttt..... upgrading the drive won't help you at all unless your planning on up grading the drive board and weld transformer.

    Shot myself in the foot on this one. Heres my problem:
    The unit "stutters" at higher voltage settings. When this happens, you can physically see the motor start / stop feeding wire. The unit itself is new, with less than a few hours of total weld time. I purchased it as old but new in the box stock.
    Ive replaced the drive roll, wire, contact tip, liner....all with the same results. Ive backed off the wire spool tension and tightened down the drive roll tension - and all settings in between. This machine refuses to run longer than a 1/4 bead with smooth results.

    If you haven't already, check all the control board receptacles for poor connections that may be breaking down under load.

    In particular:
    Transformer T1 feeds at RC6 and RC7.
    Drive motor power supply circuits at RC3 and weld output connection points(wires #33 and #34).
    Drive motor power feed circuits at RC3 (wires #35 and 36).
    Drive motor power feed harness plug/receptacle PLG28/RC28.
    All connections at the weld output rectifier downstream of the main transformer.

    In general - all harness and control board plugs.

    You should be able to isolate the problem to the motor or controls by measuring motor supply voltage at PLG28/RC28 while the unit is acting up. A steady voltage indicates a motor problem and a fluctuating voltage indicates controls. A fluctuating voltage will most likely show up as a voltage drop as a typical VOM can't respond quickly enought to show a total loss of voltage that would have to happen for the motor to actually stop/start repeatedly.

    Just some thoughts.

    All connections checked and inspected. All clean and tight. Motor voltage fluctuates from plug when it acts up. Some one on another sister forum was saying it may be the thermistor resetable fuse on the pcb?

    I'm at the end of my ability to assist on the MM135 and suggest a call to Miller Customer Service and fill them in on what the symtoms are and what you've checked to date. Sounding as if it's the board, they should be able to walk you thru any possible field checks.

    Any one at miller have info on the resetable fuse mentioned or the drive motor?
    Want to replace both. Specifically on the drive motor, just need to know the info asked so i can find a ball bearing version thats made with highet quality.

    There is not resetable fuse, some machines came with a current limiter, some didn't.

    serial# if you please
