Question about Welding Tools

My 211 Millermatic welder is experiencing burnback no matter how low I set the power. Why is it and what can I do to stop it?

    Check to make sure the wire is actually in the drive groove inside the machine. Also try running the wire to see if it is pausing and that is causing what may seem like burnback.

Your problem rely on the initial settings, your voltage is too high or your wire feed speed it's too slow. Compensate both, or just decrease you voltage.

I have power to the gas solenoid on my millermatic 211. however no gas to the tip. tank 3/4 full. have gas to flare fitting that attaches to unit. do you think bad solenoid?

Guessing you measured the power at the solenoid and therefore you have a voltmeter.
Disconnected the solenoid wiring and measure the Ohms across the coil of the solenoid.
You should read some relatively low resistance 200, 500, 5000.
Not meg-ohms.

I can turn the welder on and it can run all day but when I start welding with in a minute the overheat light will come on and it will stop feading wire. I'm trying to weld on mid temperature.

Have you checked so see if your power cable is the right size?? Is it a 220 or 110? If it is 110 then it will cut off after it gets hot, if it is 220 and the power cord is too small then the machine will be trying to pull more amps than the cord can handle causing it to overheat and shut off.. My husband has been a welder for 20 years.. I'm just passing along what he suggested might be the problem.. Hope this helps!

New welder, only fed wire a couple times now it wont work

the noise you hear is the relay for the wire feed,it means that your tension on the wire needs to be set,tighten it if it is too loose and loosen it if the roller on the feed is moving but the wire is not,also,make sure the wire moves easily in the handle,always keep your cords straight so they dont bind.

Copper end of wand and parts inside of wand have melted. Is there a replacement?

Melt?? well looks like you had a burnback problem. There are contact tips, nozzles and gun liner available. Go to your nearest welding shop and ask for them. Around 35 bucks for all three (if you need the gas mixer known also as tip holder add 10 buck more).
To avoid burnbacks, reduce your voltage or increase your wire speed.

What mig welder would you I buy to restore a old car.

I always tell my customers that the best machine for a body shop is a millermatic 212 if you have 220V available if not, go to a Millermatic 211 this is one is a dual voltage unit 110V/220V. if you can afford it buy a spool gun SG100 for all aluminum parts, the machine will cost you 999.00 and the spool gun 215.00. Best investment ever for your shop.

Millermatic 200 will not weld

1 - Check the ground connection to the work, including the actual cable to clamp connection.

2 - Make sure that the wire feed rollers are nice and clean. The wire needs to be clean too.

3 - Check that the polarity changing wire connections are nice and tight, clean, etc.

4 - change and or service the contact tip at the end of the gun.

as always, gently clean out the loose junk inside the case. A clean welder is a happy welder. :-)
