    Normal on the readout, not sure on the noise but as mentioned it will make some noise

    Read your manual !

    3 Arc Timer Display
    Upon power up as described above, the meter S LED will turn on, and arc time will be displayed for 5 seconds as [000 000] to [999 999]. The first four numbers indicate hours, and the last two numbers indicate minutes. Arc time shown in example is read as 1,234 hours and 56 minutes. Maxi- mum arc time is 9,999 hours and 59 minutes.

    That is why Miller includes a manual with their machines. Also available on-line.

    Help 2 indicates an open in the thermal protection circuitry located on the bottom heat sink. Contact a factory authorized service agent if this display is shown.

    Hlp 2 actually means a variety of things, and so far never found it to be a thermal.
