    You guys got me paranoid. What switch are you talking about? If I get a chance I will post pics of plug and switch if I know which switch I am looking for.

    This is how you want your input plug wired...

    Looks like the diagram except the red wire is snippet even with the sheathing. Can't touch anything else.

    First its wired to a single phase plug, there is no place for the Red wire?? IF it was wired wrong it would have burnt up the minute (or so) after it was plugged in. Miller instructions are pretty clear on the single vs 3 phase connections.

    Now if he was stupid like my neighbor and connected the Green wire to one of hot leads to his stove..... wonder why his wife was getting shocked when she touched the sink and stove at the same time???

    No it would work for a while just using differnt components of the input bridge, eventually though it would bake itself. Wouldn't think it would work at all, seen it many times....

    Spent most of yesterday welding 1/4 to 1/8 aluminum. Probably 5 hours of weld time and no problems First time I've had to turn the Dynasty over 150 amps. Usually 1/8 is the thickest I weld.
    Thanks everyone for the input.
