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 Bluestar 2E. It welds fine with the high idle on. It won't pick up with the high idle off. What could be the problem?

sounds like govenor is not functioning properly.
amp draw should engage unit out of idle with engine at normal operation temp.
