Miller 250
« on: February 09, 2016, 06:28:40 PM »

Well I wonder if you can polish a terd that someone else didn't want. A buddy of mine that owns a machine shop gave this to me. He said it was no use for him to rebuild and would rather buy a new unit. So here we go.

Millermatic 250
Colts 200/230/460
Amps 50/44/22
Single phase

He said something was wrong with it but I don't compredne. Lol. I will clean it tonight and when I get the leads IL plug it in and see where we're at with it. If anyone know more please suggest as we go.

No feed or no power?  Welding Web usually has good info.  Or this other backyard hillbilly farmer forum I found once

He said that it had issues with the wire feeding after the arc had stopped. I didn't get a complete download from him as I didn't ask questions and got it out of there quickly.

My Lincoln quit feeding properly and it was the selector switch.  I can't imagine it's anything too awful difficult to figure out.

44 amps at 240v ain't no joke. You have a breaker other than your stove that can handle that?

When we built the house I had 4 outlets wired for 220. Since I wasn't using those I put in 110v  plugs and removed one leg of the 220 to 110 for normal use and installed a 20a breaker.

Plus these newer homes have provisions for electric cars already in the garage. All I need for those since they plumbed piping is a fish tap and wire if I needed another outlet. I don't think I will.
