    Default Miller Syncrowave 250 Repair Help!

    Hello,

    I have a Miller Syncrowave 250 (serial number KF925533) that I bought new back in 1995. It's worked well throughout the years, but I am now having a problem with the amperage control. When using tig negative or stick DC current, it starts out around 100 amps regardless of how low I set the amperage control knob -- at least, I'm guessing it's around there because my welder does not have an amp meter on the panel.

    That being said, everything else works alright. I can go to higher amperage just fine, but I can't go to low amperage.

    I tried calling the Miller tech support line, and the tech said to check the hall device. Does anyone know how to check it? I would like to know what other people think the issue might be.

    Thanks!

    It means that your machine is running correctly, and your amp probe may be out to lunch. 35 amps running AC stick, I dont know what miniature AC rod would even start at 35 amps
