A milermatic 350, depending on how old it is.....check the capacitor bank inside. We had the same problem with one of ours ( wouldn't spray arc and was getting weaker) and the caps were bad. When you open it up, look at the caps and if they look like they have been hot....discolored and the plastic covering melted, then just replace them. I know we had trouble getting the correct size, but found some larger ones on ebay.
