    Default syncrowave 250 help 11

    I need to stick weld with the sync 250 and I get help 11 when I start in dc+. I can start in dc- or ac with no problem. I set my process switches for stick welding in dc-, turn off the machine, switch to dc + and restart. All process lights are unlit and I get the help 11. {output selector switch is not in correct position**
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    The machine will stick weld in dc- and ac, just can't get dc+ to work.

    If anyone is interested, I found out that the problem is more than likely a switch on the circuit board. Not a home fix, needs to go in for repairs. I was able to finish the job however. I just hooked the leads up backwards. The repair tech assured me that it would in no way damage anything but I may not have the functions I would normally have in DC +. IT worked good enough for me. Now I just have to load the monster up and take it to the repair shop.

    Thx for the followup report. Hope it's not too expensive a fix.

    The Miller tech told me to have the mechanic call them and they can walk him through a repair to the board rather than replacement. Still don't know the cost but he said it would save considerable amount of money.

    The board is like $150 to overhaul, unsure if that is expensive?
