Hi:

Ok, let troubleshoot this one.

There is only two connectors on your 12VS wire feeder; the lead cable that goes to the + side of the XMT welding machine and the VS cable (Volt Sensing) that goes to you work piece joining the ground cable (don't forget the ground clamp).

a) The mode switch on your XMT must be on V-sense feeder.
b) Your 12VS feeder depending on what kind of wire you are using (innershield) negative side or gas wire + side.
That's it. If there i no spark, there is something wrong with your XMT.

If this was useful to you please vote. Thanks.

I have a HEL p-6 code on a xmt 304 how do I fix it


Sounds like a input power problem . Make sure voltage is correct coming to the unit and wired correctly. I checked a Miller welder recently ,auto link that would come on and weld but not good . Took cover off and it was wired wrong .

I have a 12vs x-treme when I pull the trigger I get a slight hesitation in wire feed with soft start off is this normal? Never had that problem with my older 12vs or12rc


If by hesitation you actually mean a delay, it may simply be the bypass of the soft start feature needs to charge to a certain point for it to maintain a constant feed rate and that is what you are seeing. If it has been consistent from day 1, I would not worry too much about it.

If it is an annoyance, a board swap might resolve it. Miller does not show that model nor the others so I am not able to look at how each one's control board is wired into the welder specifically to advise further.

When im welding the xmt 304 machine will arc out and the volts will say HE.L and the amps will say P.5 its like it loses ground what does the volts and amps mean when it says that.


Help 5 Display Indicates the right side of the unit has overheated.

The unit has shut down to allow the fan to cool it. Operation will continue when the unit has cooled.

If unit overheats, output stops, a Help 5 message is displayed, and cooling fan runs.

Wait fifteen minutes for unit to cool.

To avoid this problem Reduce amperage or voltage, or duty cycle before welding.

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