Miller S-54D 115V digital wire feeder that does not weld right.

We have a Miller S-54 D 115V digital wire feeder ran off a Deltaweld 451 / Constant Voltage dc Welding Power Source that when you start to weld the wire speed controller drops to 0 but the wire feeds at almost full speed. The weld is just a big glob and does not penatrate the metal. I have checked all the grounding connections all the cable connections to the power source and all the wires inside the wire feeder. What might be causing this problem? thank you

Hi Kevin,
Causes of poor penetration: Travel speed too fast, welding current too low,
poor joint design / and or preparation, electrode diameter too large,
wrong type of electrode, excessively long arc length.
Solutions: Decrease travel speed, increase welding current, increase root
opening or decrease rootface, use smaller electrode, use electrode with deeper
penetration characteristics, reduce arc length.

How i can use wire feer x-tyrem with a cp-302 welder


Hi:

An easy one: Connect your Suitcase X-treme 8 or 12 VS (volts sensing) as follows:

Weld Cable (+) To Feeder lead cable.


Work Cable ( - ) To Workpiece Weld cable and work cable connections to power source (DCEN/DCEP) are dependant on wire type.

Since feeder is not polarity sensitive, there is no need for an electrode polarity switch.


Voltage Sensing Clamp Connect voltage sensing clamp to

workpiece.


Gas Hose to regulator.


Gas Cylinder to regulator.

Use of shielding gas is dependant on wire type.


You are all set up to weld.

How do you hook a miller s-22p8 wire feeder to a lincoln ranger 10,000 plus engine driven welder?


you can't, the S-22P8 it's not a volt sensing wire feeder, it requires 24V or 115 with an adapter. FOr CV machines only.

. Hello! I have a millermatic 251 and a 252,


Flux core wires will run on reverse polarity (gorund +), for solid core wires you need straight polarity (ground clamp at negative ). That will take care of the problem.

Wire slows down during welding and then suddenly jerks back to correct speed.i installed a new board and it did not fix problem. i also checked the brushes on the motor and they looked fine. its a series...


try replacing the potentiometer, this is the variable dial which alters the speed. It should show the value in ohms on the back of the case, these are relatively cheap and can be bought from RS. Its sound like the wiper in the dial is loose.

Im tryint to conect my wire feeder


ask weld tech at a welding supply store and ask if your components are compatible (since most wire feeders are 24 volts).
