    The other display should have a numeric code that specifies exactly what the welder is shutting down for. Your manual has a nifty chart that explains what to do for each of the HLP codes.

SOURCE: Hi, starts to weld fine after a few seconds hi

It sounds like you need to change out your SCR chip on your motherboard; Miller makes one that i have installed on all our 350xl's, I don't have the number on hand but i can get it for you tomorrow.

SOURCE: I have a miller microwave 200. what settings

I think you mean you have a Miller Synchrowave 200.

Typically, you would want to use AC below about 250 amps. In this case (to keep it simple), use AC, adjust your balance to about 4, use an 1/8" pure tungsten, pure argon at about 20CFh, and set the panel at 170amps to get things started. For general purpose, use 4043 filler.

Now - these are just generic settings, but they will get you going.

SOURCE: why is my arc unstable when I start Tig welding? Sometimes it starts nice and smooth and sometimes it blasts really bright and flashes me.

The tungsten point has to be quite sharp, the gas has to give constant flow relative to the tip size and shroud and the amps adequate to create a spark without immediately making a mess of the parent metal. The two most common issues will be the cleanliness of the parent metal and the Gas flow. Assuming you have all this set up, it actually sounds like you have a problem with your mask as you shouldn't get flashed at all.
I had a similar problem once with a solar powered auto mask because the batteries had died and wouldn't recharge. I retro fitted a couple of button cell 2032 to the mask and it's working fine.

Im welding 16ga sheet metal, with short little beeds. i will lay a 1 inch bead and stop and go to start another one i step on the pedal and there is nothen i have to wait for the machine to cycle....


Is it waiting to finish the post-flow cycle before allowing you to start the arc again? If so I'd return it with all speed because it's going to cost you much in time and gas both.

If you can't return it, are you capable of modifying it? If not, try breaking the arc and just starting the next without letting the pedal up fully.

Does not generate at normal current,wont quite strike an arc.is there a wiring diagram that could be used for diagnostics/repair ?


Check for any loosened terminals and observe the welding machine if it sounds like hamming when connected to the power source. If you hear no sound, it means that no power is coming in. Check your fuse or breaker of the welding machine it might be busted already.

My tig welder wont arc unless I touch the metal with it


my guess would be the type of welding machine you have.usually there is extra switch which says start control also continious cycle , sometimes smaller machines dont have these switches to allow a wider variety of tweeking the welder ,also its ok if you have to touch the base metal cause thats what starts the contact with the work peice ,keep a arc after touching about 1/4 inch away from work peice ,also a good steady hand rest will make a good welder in any situation this should allow the arc to remaim stable with a comntinious weld arc puddle. happy welding

Bad tig weld job


Wow you have a lot of variables here. Let's go over some of them.1.AC current 2.100%argon shield gas 3.Check your Tungsten, it must be the recommended 1or 2% and the right size, clean and the tip rounded by meting 4. High freq. turned to continous-not just "START"
5. CLEAN,CLEAN,CLEAN your Alum. with a S.S. brush that has touched NOTHING else in in it's life!
Start here and GOOD luck
