By any chance has this generator been sitting for a while, or been dropped? That's a common symptom. The generator has lost its' residual magnatism. The exiter field needs to be flashed. Either follow the instructions in you user manual or see this link:

Avoid this problem in the future by running the generator with a load on it for 10 minutes or so every once in a while.

Blue star 6000 welds at full power, can't regulate it with dial.

The potentiometer for current control may be shorted, there may be an issue on the control board where the SCR's may be shorted. It is possible the accesory board was wired wrong.

It is also possible there is a broken wire in the current sense portion of the circuit, but I would first look the current control pot and at the SCR's to be at fault.

Wiring diagram for miller bluestar welder ser. JE817646

If you see a model that is close in description in the Blue Star models, such as a "145" the wiring diagram should be close if not the same. Otherwise select from the list the Blue Star with the same engine type as yours.

The If the tag is not damaged, and truly a JE series, you can download all the Blue Star manuals to find the one that has your serial number in the range. Miller is good with manuals, but sometimes the cross reference to just serial number does not work.
