The problem is either a bad breaker ...sometimes the breakers can kick before the rated amperage is reached..
or.. the breaker and/or the power cord are too light to handle the load...
The best way to figure it out would be to use an amp meter to verify the amp. draw that will kick the breaker and then compare that to the rating of the breaker...
Also use a voltage meter to verifiy wether or not the voltage is dropping significantly at the welder...when it is running..this would take two people.. one to run the welder and the other to check the voltage at the panel and at the welder...

    Don't expect to run much other than a light bulb on your generator when your welding.

My TB 302 cranks and runs at high idle does not idle down. I have power at all recepticals but no power at welding leads. I have checked all breakers and fuses, they are ok. what do I need to do next

there are a few things you can check on your machine,
make sure your machine is not in the remote control position, make your process switch is in the electrode hot position, the trailblazer has three slip rings, make sure the carbon brushes are not "stuck" in the holders, there are 2 circuit boards in your machine, make sure the plugs are properly inserted into the receptacles and making good contact, also make sure your ignition switch plug is clean and making good contact

The CP-300 and CP-200 were never designed to run on single phase. You can buy a 3-phase generator (see military surplus) or a phase converter. You will need a pretty big one - like one rated for 20hp to use the full potential of the welder. That is also pretty expensive - say $1000. However, if you have a shop, you can buy used 3-phase equipment sometimes significantly cheaper than 2-phase stuff. So you buy that expensive converter and save money on all the other equipment you will buy. Or sell it. Or scrap it - some older welders had big copper wound transformers - a few hundred bucks worth of copper.... some had aluminum though... Good luck.

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


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


Gas Hose to regulator.

Gas Cylinder to regulator.

Use of shielding gas is dependant on wire type.

You are all set up to weld.

Miller welder serial number KF957066. Please tell me about this machine is it a generator type or three phase? It is in an auction and was wondering about it. Never saw one in my life although I have been...

Miller welders are great. I've been around them a long time as an electrician in the mines years ago. They make a 3 phase model and a motor gen type too. They are both good welders in my opinion.
