    Got a call today saying that they were replacing the boards. That's all the explanation I received. If I'm lucky I'll have it back by the weekend. Just in time to make some money

    The tech called me this morning and told me they replaced three boards and the module. I will have my Dynasty back tomorrow morning

    So, what caused it? Was it wired wrong?

    I'm really curiuous too, though the tech likely won't tell you, or even notice that it may be still wired wrong.

    It will work wired incorrect, but will let the smoke out eventually in a short time frame. Most techs never look for the route cause of a failure.

    I am curious too...

    that is why I was asking about the RED wire.....

    you might consider opening up the plug and seeing how they wired it...

    Pretty hard to wire single phase 230 volt circuit. Two hot wires no polarity, and the green wire goes to frame ground. I'm sure Miller color coded the ground wire connection Green.

    Of course maybe its 3 phase.

    The RED wire could be the key....

    It's just single phase. Why would it work fine for so many hours of welding if a switch was wired wrong?
