If you wire runs, then your problem is the power line, check first that you have in hook up to the psotive (+) side of the power source/machine. The spool guns is just a wire feeder, your heat comes from the power source.

    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.

    Miller spoolmatic pro 30A, It still feeds, but won't arc. Less than a year old, what can I try?

    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.

    Miller 130 wire advances, fan runs, but will not arc as wire comes out

    Most of these machines (would have to have serial number to be sure) will not feed if their is no output voltage, since part of the motor voltage comes from the arc voltage.
    So, I would suspect broken wires, either in the work lead or the gun. If it arcs just a little, probably the gun. One place the work lead breaks is right at the back of the clamp. Pull on the insulation and see if it "stretches". If so, the wire there is broken.

    Spool won't turn

    are the rollers tightened enough, also maybe the wire is jammed in gun.

    Miller 350p welder gives a "help 3" code.

    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.

    To fix:

    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.
