Hi there,
The short answer is that you can't do this with a Bobcat, you need a Trailblazer welder with a remote socket.
The reason that this isn't a good idea is that the wires you talk about are in the rotors exciter circuit, at full output there is going to be something like 7 amps flowing thru those wires, 'dya really think those wires on your expensive remote control will handle 7 amps?
The rheostat is a 100 watt one, think about holding a lit up 100 watt bulb in your hand...

If you really need remote current control you might try talking to your local Miller dealer, he will be able to check on trading your machine for a reconditioned Trailblazer for a reasonable price.

Regards,
Carl

How do I replace a polarity switch on a lincoln k1297?


The leads are soldered to the switch internally. I performed services like that for 18+ years and if you're not familiar with using a brazing tip and silver solder, I suggest you take it to a professional. It won't be easy and you run the risk of damaging your machine.

Miller bobcat 250


remove the side doors, and top cover, make sure your brushes are making correct contact against the slip rings, there is a flat mounting panel behind the range control switch, you will see 2 white fuses in their holders, check these fuses, one controls AC output the other controls weld current output.

Bobcat 225 runs good but wont weld.Welded great one week prior


Hi:

Probably your machine overloaded. Check the fuses F1 and F2 and if they are open replace them.
Both fuses are located at left hand side of machine, open it and you will find them on the bracket. Check your owner's manual for an ilustration of it.

Bobcat 225, machine is idling way to high and will not idle back or shut down when switched to off position. Could this be the soleniod on top of motor connected to throttlelinkage?


It could be and the governor sticking to wide open throttle, try the linkage at the full fuel position with the engine off and see if it sticks when in full fuel mode, there could also be an intake leak but would not cause it to run with the switch off that is a different problem. let me know if you need more help.

Miller bobcat 225g plus welding problem


If the idle is not working, then it is either you idle solenoid attached to the carberator or your idle board is bad. If you apply 12Vdc to the idle solenoid is should move, if not then the solenoid is shot, no good. If it works then you idle board is bad. Also, check to see if you are 60Hertz by measuring at the outlet with a frequency meter. I recommend a Fluke meter. You should have 120Vac and 60HZ at the outlet. If the frequency is low then your engine speed needs to be increased. The idle solenoid could be causing all these problems.
