Less than a year, warranty. Otherwise, of the machine welds with the other gun, then the spoolgun most likely has a bad weld cable.

Check that the earth lead is correctly fitted to the machine and the work
as it should have a warranty, if that doesn't fix then back to the shop for a repair.

Run the first layer of wire of the spool you will see a color change. The wire gets a fine layer of oxidation and this causes a bad contact.

    When I push the trigger I lose my voltage to run the feed motor, the motor works with other power source


    Had the same problem with mine but mine isn't miller and don't know if your's is built the same but if you access the inside of the machine there's there's a large copper spool inside and that wire feed handle is powered through it. The connection heats up over time and becomes a short. I re spliced mine then soldered it and then cut piece of copper tubing and crimped it around the connection and soldered that as well.
    Corrected the problem and I tried pretty much all listed solutions other then this first. Tried the new liner in the torch, the new tip and clamping the wire feed assembly with a clamp instead of the tensioner. All failed. I stumbled on to the fix accidentally when I was trying to install a more heavy duty fan. Hope this helps. Good luck.

    I have a miller 211 and the fan cuts on but nothing lights up and no wire feed


    If this is the auto set version, is it under warranty? Less than 3 years old? If so take it to a shop and fix should be free. Otherwise, the fan motor is also a transformer, which puts out 24 vac to run the board. So could be fan motor or the board itself.

    Spoolmate 100 wont feed


    Check for binding int he inner sleeve first, then increase tension as long as feed motor spins. If feed motor does not spin check wiring to make sure it is connected correctly.

    Our MillerMatic 175 wire feed cannot be adjusted down enough. The rheostat seems to function, but even the lowest setting is now way too fast.


    Your Millermatic 175 has syncronize wire speed-voltage feature in order to reduce the wire speed first reduce your heat (voltage). Try again.

    Wire won't feed or arc fan runns


    Look for a reset button on the case. Make sure that you have power to the machine and at the power socket. If everything looks ok outside, you may have to investigate your warranty. Good luck!

    I have a miller 180 autoset that does not feed the wire


    If your welder is less than 3 years old your local Miller authorized service center will repair it for FREE. They can also check the serial number of your welder over the phone to see if it is still in warranty. For goodness sake DON'T tell them you've been mucking around inside the welder or they won't be able to help you.
    That said, if the welder spins the feed wheels without any wire between them it probably isn't the board. There is the switch in the gun, the board, and the motor and brake assembly all needed to feed the wire.
