Question about Miller Welding Tools
I have a Miller matic S-32S an older unit for sure, which I run through a Miller Thunderbolt power source. The problem is I get imediate arc as soon as I touch the wire to a piece of metal, without pulling the trigger. It will not let me start a weld this way, and as soon a it makes contact, the wire heats up to the tip. I have checked all the conections, and there are no frayed wire. The unit Thunderbolt unit arc weld nicely,so no problems with the power source. Any help would be appreciated. Ron
Does this unit have a high side and a low side if it does plug it into the low side and try it.

Code help-3 Indicates that the gun trigger was pulled and held during power up. Release gun trigger and clear fault condition. Also, this display can Indicate no open circuit voltage detected when gun trigger is pulled and no arc detected within 3 seconds, this means that the trigger was held without any metal contact. The machine will shut down in order to avoit the wire to continue to run freely.
Turn on the machine without pressing the trigger on the gun. Then increase to the max the wire speed. Then turn off the machine. Press the trigger after the machine was turn off, then without releasing the trigger, turn on the machine and release the trigger after 2 seconds. That will take care of it.
