    Default Millermatic 211 drive motor issue.

    I've got a Millermatic 211 with less than 2 hours of run time on it, bought it brand new about 3.5 years ago and am just getting back into some fab work. I was tacking up a set of brackets yesterday when all of the sudden the drive motor crapped out. The ground and stinger are in great shape, the liner is clean, brand new 8 lb. spool of wire, full bottle of 75/25. I pulled all the wire back out of the stinger and made sure the spool wasn't grounding out anywhere. Pulled the stinger lead out of the connector and made sure it was clean, reinstalled it and tightened it down. When the welder is on I can here the trigger clicking and gas flows, but the drive motor does not spin. I pulled the main cover off and there are no loose connections. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
