    Default Do Miller engineers have a sense of humor?

    I was going to do a little metal work today. I got the pieces fitted, turned my welder (7 month old MM251) on, set the voltage and wire feed speed. Life is good. Then I pulled the trigger and nothing. Looked at the welder's display and there it was HLP 001. The laughter started almost immediately, it was asling for HeLP!

    Don't know for sure what the problem is yet. It is under warranty and I took it in Wednesday. The HLP001 code is supposed to mean communication between the main board and the display has been lost.

    Angry

    Well I took the machine to the local dealer one week ago today. Aparently they don't have anyone there doing repairs, so they sent it to their main store (50 miles away) the next day. Called my local dealer two times this week and was told the guy i was dealing with would call me right back. The calls were not returned. When I got home today, my wife had called them (I think she wanted to make sure I didn't drive over to see them) and was told that it was inline with 14 welders in front of it and that hopefully they would get to it the first of next week.
