    Default maxstar 150 stl trouble.

    I was wondering I'd I could get someone to e-mail me a good picture of the inside wiring of a miller maxstar 150 stl I traded for this welder and outside cover, and both ends had been taken off to blow out and clean. I put both ends back on, but need a photo of how to plug all the wires back in. I don't want to hook them up wrong and fry it.

    Can't you look at the diagram either in the manual or on the inside of the cover? You can download a manual at millerwelds.com under resources. If you can't get what you need from that... Let me know tomorrow and I will take the cover off mine and take some pics for you. Its about time it gets a good cleaning and waxing. I just tried meguires plastic and vinyl restorer on the plastic of a couple of my machines and then used rubbing compound and wax on the painted metal and they turned out great. Maguires is some really good stuff. They look new....q

    Sounds more like the unit is roasted already. Who the heck is going to strip it right down to blow it out. Likely its a parts machine. Even if really there are no useable parts inside of it.

    Me. I do it to all my tools/equipment. That's why my equipment outlasts other's equipment that gets neglected... and they still look new or like they did when I first got em. And just judging from your comment... are you saying its not even worth trying to put it back together?... he should just assume that its not usable because the cover is off?

    If that is a late model maxstar, there is no reason to remove the cover to blow out.

    I also believe that something more than just a reassembly is in order. I would send it out to a repair facility for diagnosis, and or proper reassembly.

    Every time i pull the cover off of my maxstar it is very dusty inside. Since it is only two screws...why not. When you blow it out through the vent slots it really doesnt do much cause that part is boxed in separatly, so to actually clean it out u need to pull the cover.

    Yeah, you got me thinking about that. I may pull the cover off and see what is in there.

    Anyhow this maxstar was pretty disassembled. More than a clean I imagine.
