    Replace the gas solenoid.  If you need one I'll send you a good used one off of another Maxstar 200 for just the shipping cost.  Send me the serial number of your machine just to be sure they are copacetic.

SOURCE: miller syncrowave 200 makes buzzing noise from spark gaps.

Odd noises other than the normal sound of the spark gap working are often the result of dust and junk inside the case of your welder. That it also bogs down when it gets warmed up (fan comes on), also points to a need for some "annual maintenance" stuff being done.

Completely isolate the machine from the building power supply, pul the plug, open the circuit breaker, do whatever it is that makes the machine have no connection to any power.

Take off the covers with a 10mm or 3/8 inch socket (can't remember which)

Use a shop vac to **** out all of the dust and debris out of the machine. Low pressure (40 psi) air can sometimes be helpful to dislodge caked on dirt. Avoid any metal tools near the capacitor bank inside the welder.

Wipe off the fan blades.

Clean the spark gap electrodes by inserting and removing a matchbook cover, a business card, or a piece of white cardboard several times. Inspect the electrodes and adjust them according to the manual that came with the welder.

Check all of the power wiring connections for tightness by gently tugging on them. Look for signs of overheating on the power connections and on the internal connections to the welding terminals. Check the range switch for heating too.

With the cover still off, reconnect the power and turn the welder on. Look for obviously vibrating laminations on the main input transformer. If you see one buzzing back and forth, or if you notice lots of wear and tear on the varnish coating of the laminations, shut everything down and repair the loose laminations with some anti-fungal high voltage varnish.

Turn the welder off, disconnect the power, and put it all back together. Then turn the power back on and weld something, if htere is still a buzzing noise you'll need a Miller tech to solve the problem, you likely have a bad input transfirmer.

clean your metal with a good peace of the green scotch guard scrub pad prior to the weld.Also try turning up your gas and move a little faster when using filler wire,rember to much heat causes a darker dirter weld.hope this helps

SOURCE: miller Syncrowave 250 / no tig arc start

seems that you have a ground issue. make sure the ground clap is on barte metela and secured tight. make sure your tungsten electrod is about 1/8 of an inch form the edge of the cone. you will find that you will get a faster arc this way.

Wow what a great machine. You have so many options that you should be able to control the ending arc. Yes, you should be able to adjust the intensity of the HF. Also if you use the Sequencer Control, you should be able to finish the weld in a slope manner. I am including the owners manual. Operation starts on page 38. Miller has a team of welding engineer that will be able to help you set up your machine. Wish I had one.

Legend REL RMT means release remote, this happens when your torch's trigger is depressed and you need to release the trigger to continue.
Check the owner's manual on section 7-4 troubleshooting, it's there.

My miller sychrowave tig welder is not blowing sheilding gas when it strikes an arc. The gas is on at the tank. I can hear what sounds like gas or a valve opening when I press the foot control, but my...

Remove the tig torch twist lock from the front of the machine. Step on the pedal as if you were striking an arc and gas should flow out of the twist lock port. If gas comes out of the port, your torch probably has a valve built in (many do) often this is a sleeve on the torch body which you rotate but may not be obvious.
If no gas out of port then its the solenoid or regulator.
You do have the machine in TIG mode and not stick?

Tig my pudle melts into gray not shinny

Ensure you have the correct angle when using the torch = 22-24 degrees from vert: this will provide good gas coverage. setting should be 15 - 20 ltrs using a "flow meter".clean the material thoroghly then weld , dont clean then leave for a long time.
Argon gas sometimes can be contaminated and cause heavy soot on the weld bead,
TIG electrode should be Zirconiated with a rounded end not pointed.
Use forehand ,method
