Not receiving satellite signal.

If my atenna has gone bad, is there a way I can repair it? I am very good with small electronics.

    Yes it does. I just received an external antenna and it works perfect. Now I would like to be able to fix the internal one so that I don't have to be tied to a cable all the time. Garmin wants $150 to fix it. I'm hoping there's another route I can take.

    Please advise,

    I have the same problem. My unit doesn't acquire any satellites with the internal antenna, but works just fine with an external antenna. I took the unit apart, but I can't figure out how to remove the internal antenna.

    Anybody know how to remove/replace the internal antenna?

I too fixed my IQ 3600 satellite-acquiring problem, with a $20 Gilsson external antenna. This was after I'd paid Garmin $150 just last year to repair the same problem. They ended up sending me a different unit.
I'm not very happy with Garmin. I bought my IQ 3600 in 2004 for what seemed to me like big bucks. Just 2 1/2 years later I paid $150 to get it repaired. If Garmin had its way, just a year later I'd again pay for another repair (now $200!) Hmmm, is it worth it? I don't think so!
I love Ginger when she works, but she don't work so good! Thank goodness the external antenna fixes the problem! Otherwise, I'd be a-fussin' and a-fumin'.

Millermatic 211 when its plugged into 110 it welds fine but when i plug it into 220 the fan kicks on like normal but i get nothing on the gun and no wire feed shop said board miller says its a relay.

This machine is an auto adjust for different voltages.

The front end of the circuity is a PMPS or pulse mode power supply. No matter the input, the output is the same.
Most all small appliances today are built around this technology. I bet a small IC on the circuit board has gone bad. A good electronics repair man could fix this or you can get the board from Miller.

Without seeing the ends I cant help you here but I can steer you towards Allied Electronics. Give them a call and tell them what you have. They should be able to cross reference for them or have converters available.

Thermostat reads 120 degrees but pool is only about 75

Your temp sensor has gone bad. It is a small tube that slides into the water manifold with two wires comming from it. Follow these to the control board and then unplug them. Now just get a new one and replace. This should fix the problem. Good luck.

Technic 1200mk2 has no speed control

This unit is NOT belt driven. It is direct drive, meaning, that a series of Integrated Circuits (IC's), and various other electronic components control it's speed. If it's going very fast, more than likely one of the IC's (or multiple), have gone bad. You need to take this to a service center for repair.

You have a short in the internal power of this unit. It is going into protect and shutting itself off to keep it from damaging anymore of the internal electronics. Very likely a voltage regulator has gone bad or a power capacitor has gone bad. You will not be able to repair this yourself unless you are skilled in electronic repair. I would suggest contacting the manu and seeing if they have a authorized repair shop in your area. If not ask around and see who is a reputable repair shop in your area.
