    Default Welcome to the MillerWelds.com Discussion Forums

    This is a place to discuss welding and related topics. It provides a place for welders to connect with one another and harness the collective intelligence of the welding community to finish a project, share best practices, troubleshoot your application and get practical, hands-on welding advice.

    If your question is about a specific process or piece of equipment, it’s helpful to provide as much detail as possible in your post – material and thickness, model name and number, serial number, or even upload a photo of your machine or your work. Have you first read the manual for your particular model? (Download Manuals)

    If you require a direct response from Miller, please use the Contact Us page [http://www.millerwelds.com/service/contactus.html].

    All people and points of view are welcome! But please remember to be respectful to others when you post.

    Full terms of use are here [http://www.millerwelds.com/about/terms.html], and if you have any questions or comments, please send them to forum@millerwelds.com.

    If you have a technical question it is best to post the problems you are having with the unit and please post a serial#, so that we (Miller CST welder techs) can go to the private tech sites, be it Miller, Lincoln, or where ever and pull up the correct diagrams.

    This is a free service to you, so give us as much information as you can. May save you alot of coin.

    This is sad... I really enjoyed one of the most epic threads about a Millermatic because of the variety of technical inputs...

    Lots of changes around here lately.... not all of them positive..... The original forum was named "AskAndy"........ now I guess you want to call it ask cruizer???
    while I have a lot of respect for his expertise... he is by no means infallable.... a large portion of the value of this forum has been the technical exchange and give and take......coupled with the vast pool of experience to be drawn upon from the members..


    truly sad.......

    would very much like some "official" word on this.......

    Default official rule

    The official rule is:

    Anyone with technical knowledge about the OP subject matter has a right to share his/her advice.

    As most of you know, there are many avenues to attack a technical problem.

    No not official, It just when I had pretty much figured out what was wrong with the Millermatic in question and many other machines, everybody jumped in to resolve it and usually pushes the OP farther away from the original problem. So if H80 or Duane jumps in, I'll leave it alone and watch as all the stories unfold. so instead of what could of been 8 posts, it turned into 130 posts.

    Hello cruizer, I believe it was you who replied to my original post a few months back but I wasn't able to find it on this forum anymore. I did not include the serial# of my machine; LE119717. Per your instructions I checked the resistance of the drive motor which was 17.1 ohms, but I don't remember what you said it's supposed to be. In addition, I checked the voltage at the drive motor connector and while activating the gun trigger I got .202 VAC with the motor disconnected and .0001 VAC with it plugged in. Does this indicate a bad motor? The motor runs connected to 12VDC, and I already replaced the main PC board. ( the price of listening to a friend who thought they knew what they were talking about).

    click on your own username, you'll find every post you ever made.
    Obviously, I'm just a hack-artist, you shouldn't be listening to anything I say .....

    miller big 40 serial ke 6550844. Problem is it runs great I put new brushes in but this generator will produce welding current just been doing 3/32 6011 and 1/8 7018. I turnoff the machine And restart to weld and no weld current. Even when I leave the machine running and take a break and try to continue the welding, no arc. I have been thru new leads and lugs ong with ground clamp and stinger. Please help I really love having a diesel and want this machine to last. Thank you
