    I got the machine, was full of dielectric power. normal I guess.
    I put the 6-50p on it.
    Switched the switch on the back to 230.
    Plugged it in, and nothing happens.
    I talked to the seller, I trust him.
    That's beside the point.

    I can't read the nameplate. Will it configure to 240 Volt single phase? Might it be possible to download a manual? I wonder if the way it is linked for 480 it won't recognize 240 as useable power supply. Most machines have connection diagrams on or in the supply enclosure.

    I wasn't able to open the link. The red lead has me wondering.

    You may have a point there......

    Easy enough to check which color wires are connected on the WELDER side..

    that machine is single phase only so it may not follow the same convention used on the Miller Dynasty wiring...

    if it is not connected... it will not power up....

    Try this link to the Manual

    Page a-3 tells you how to switch to 230 v in the manual posted.

    I'm pretty sure its a 1ph machine.
    There was only three wires.
    I'm guessing it was 480v when I got it.
    I put a 230v plug on it.

    H80N,
    Thats the part in the manual I read.
    Makes sense that if I have the plug wired on that the fuse shut off all the power.

    I'll check and get back to you.

    Thanks.

    This is absolutely a SINGLE PHASE machine...

    You might check what color wires connect to where INSIDE the welder...

    Willie might be on to something regarding the red wire..

    Sorry to confuse.
    This is single phase machine, designed to run on 230v or 480v.

    This machine came with a 480 plug.

    I took it off and put a 6-50p on it, same wiring as the other plug.
    Which, since no one has corrected me, I assume is wired correctly. (?????)

    So, tomorrow I will check the continuity of the 0.5amp fuse.

    According to the manual, can be the remote cause of no action on the machine.

    Thanks,
    ~John
