    OK I have one. Not really something you couldn't figure out, but still a problem for me.
    I use the RCC-14 control on all my tigs. From time to time the cables go bad, right at the controller. I've bought the little repair kits and had mostly bad luck.
    Mainly because I ain't that good with that small of wire. Besides I need to be welding with my time.
    My Miller rep doesn't show just the cord available. I have a pile of this stuff laying around and it is bound to get bigger.
    I would love to find a place to just buy the control cable and not the entire assembly. Any ideas?

    What you have there is basically 5 wire 26 gage cord, any electronics store will carry it, maybe go to a 22 gage so that it doesn't break as often

    Got info on what went bad on my Dynasty 200 DX, PC-1, PC-2 and PC -10. Could reversed wires inside machine calls this?
    Thanks Kevin

    Possible as the pc2 interconnect board got taken out first popping the preregulator module, and surging the other 2 inverter pc1 and boost pc10 boards.

    If the boost board got hit, the inverter board would be ok, but would have taken out a diode on the pc2 interconnect board. If the inverter board got hit, damage would be confined to it, so something happened to the preregulator mod which they are likely changing out with PC2 interconnect but didn't mention it.

    I bet I have one you cant figure out.

    All my welds keep breaking and I know its not me so whats wrong with the welder.

    And by the way, I've only been wrong once and that was when I thought I was wrong but then discovered that I was'nt.

    You know, your not so far off there, there is lots of Chinese, and east indians that could not weld if thier life depended on it. and its always the machine causing the problem. The ones that can barely speak english I imediately send elsewhere. The ones that attempt to talk me down in price are gone too. They all seem to like to barter, The Hudderites are ok, as they fill me up with fresh bread, meat and picked eggs.

    Nothing wrong with barter, as long as its beneficial to all party's.

    Default 211 Soft Start

    Did we ever fix the 211 soft start issue. It sounds like there may be a releay sticking or chattering or posibly a logic problem some where since it only does it on the first pull, and after reseting. I am not a miller tech, just an electronics guy so take this with a grain of salt. With out a scat to read and trace, i really can give you any more advice.

    The parts book shows all the pieces to build your own cord. If you have the right crimpers. But not a cord that is already assembled ready to just plug in.
    They do have ready to plug in cord assemblies for the foot controls.
