My miller blue star 185 wont idle up when you start welding


Check your idle control module,
take the roof off of your welder, located at the top right of the inner control panel, it is the little red box with multiple white leads connected to it and labeled with alphabet letters.
pull the connectors, insure they are clean, reconnect them, start your welder and see if that corrects the problem, if not, you will need to purchase a new idle control module

I have a miller bobcat 225 is lower power while welding, any idea?


First off, check all of your welding cables to make sure they're in good shape, then check for tight cable connections. Is your machine staying at low idle speed while trying to weld? If so, Switch the idle select into the 'weld' position and make sure the high RPM's initiate. Try welding again. Better? Could be a number of things, if not.

My bobcat 225g runs full bore all the time, I thought it would idle then when you strike an arc it would pick up speed,


A welder does not speed up when an arc is struck. It is normal for a gas welder to stay at a high rpm. If it did not, it would be very hard on the machine as a high amperage is needed to start an arc for welding, and to be consistant. Unlike a generator which will "idle down" when not in use.

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.
