    Default welder does not come on!

    I have a Miller 210, put 1 spool of wire through it and it always worked great. I moved from California to Colorado 3 years ago and just now was able to use welder. I plugged it in and turned on the switch and........ nothing! I checked the power source and then opened up the welder. There is power to the switch and out the other side. There is power to the fan and the leads going to the transformers but nothing comes on..... Any ideas???? Help!

    Thank you, i'll go try it...... Well, that didn't work, all I got was silence again. does anything go wrong from just sitting for almost 4 years or traveling 1100 miles on a truck? This thing is in brand new condition and was always kept inside. Got any ideas for my next step?

    Pretty simple machine, Is your power correct?

    Odd that your contactor is dropping out, thats why I'm thinking that you don't have a complete 230 Vac to run the unit.
