    Default Syncrowave Coolant Pump

    My coolant pump on my Syncrowave 250dx (Tig runner) has failed. It doesn't turn on most of the time, and when it does, it is painfully loud.

    On the pump, it is labeled 'Procon CMP-7400'. All the online resources say that this pump isn't manufactured anymore. None are available on Ebay.

    In the manual, it is labeled as Miller PN 211045. A few online site have the pump in stock, but it is $450+!

    I see Miller changed up their integrated cooler. Is there an alternative motor/pump that won't cost 10% of what the whole welder cost?

    Still available from Miller, quite a pricey list though, $450 is pretty good in other words.

    What you can do is take it apart, and see if its simply gooey in there. Its the brass bushings that let go

    I've been told that Procon offers re-build kits for their pumps, but I never tried to get one. Before I spent $450 for a new pump I would certainly explore doing a re-build of the one that you have.

    Edco distributing can probably rebuild your pump for you. Halsted and Hogan used to do it but uses Edco now.

    It comes back looking nearly brand new. http://www.edcodistributing.com/pcpumps.php

    Thanks for the info. I contacted them to see if they'll do it.

    They can't do it. I'll try procon for a kit.

    Might be barking up the wrong tree... but have you checked to see if you have a clogged intake strainer or a sheared shaft coupler and not a bad pump..??

    The shaft coupler is good.
    There is no intake strainer.

    I took the pump housing off and it spun up just fine. However, the vanes seem to be stuck in place. I suppose they need to move back and forth. I wonder if this is jamming the pump?

    Cleaned up everything with a solvent. There was a sticky coating over everything. Lubed the vanes and Orings with vaseline and put it back together. Don't get the flowrate error, so it appears to be working fine!
