From Miller to You
Thank you and congratulations on choosing Miller. Now
you can get the job done and get it done right. We know
you don’t have time to do it any other way.
That’s why when Niels Miller first started building arc
welders in 1929, he made sure his products offered
long-lasting value and superior quality. Like you, his
customers couldn’t afford anything less. Miller products
had to be more than the best they could be. They had to
be the best you could buy.
Today, the people that build and sell Miller products continue the
tradition. They’re just as committed to providing equipment and service
that meets the high standards of quality and value established in 1929.
This Owner’s Manual is designed to help you get the most out of your
Miller products. Please take time to read the Safety precautions. They will
help you protect yourself against potential hazards on the worksite. We’ve
made installation and operation quick and easy.
With Miller you can count on years of reliable
service with proper maintenance. And if for
some reason the unit needs repair, there’s a
Troubleshooting section that will help you
Miller is the first welding figure out what the problem is. The parts list
equipment manufacturer in will then help you to decide which exact part
the U.S.A. to be registered to
the ISO 9001 Quality System you may need to fix the problem. Warranty and
Standard.
service information for your particular model
are also provided.
Miller Electric manufactures a full line
of welders and welding related equipment.
For information on other quality Miller
products, contact your local Miller distributor
to receive the latest full line catalog or
individual catalog sheets. To locate your nearest
distributor or service agency call 1-800-4-A-Miller,

Working as hard as you do
– every power source from
Miller is backed by the most
hassle-free warranty in the
business.
Miller offers a Technical
Manual which provides
more detailed service and
parts information for your
unit. To obtain a Technical

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS FOR GMAW GUNS
WARNING
GMAW WELDING can be hazardous.
PROTECT YOURSELF AND OTHERS FROM POSSIBLE SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH. KEEP CHILDREN
AWAY. PACEMAKER WEARERS KEEP AWAY UNTIL CONSULTING YOUR DOCTOR.
In welding, as in most jobs, exposure to certain hazards occurs. Welding is safe when precautions are taken. The
safety information given below is only a summary of the more complete safety information found in the wire feeder
and welding power source Owner’s Manuals. Read and follow all safety precautions.
HAVE ALL INSTALLATION, OPERATION, MAINTENANCE, AND REPAIR WORK PERFORMED ONLY BY
QUALIFIED PEOPLE.
ELECTRIC SHOCK can kill.
1.
2.
3.
4.
Always wear dry insulating gloves.
Insulate yourself from work and ground.
Do not touch live electrode or electrical parts.
Repair or replace worn, damaged, or cracked
gun or cable insulation.
5. Turn off welding power source before changing
contact tip or gun parts.
6. Keep all covers and handle securely in place.
FUMES AND GASES can be hazardous
to your health.
1. Keep your head out of the fumes.
2. Ventilate area, or use breathing device.
3. Read Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) and
manufacturer’s instructions for material used.
WELDING can cause fire or explosion.
1. Do not weld near flammable material.
2. Do not weld on closed containers.
3. Watch for fire; keep extinguisher nearby.
ARC RAYS can burn eyes and skin.
1. Wear welding helmet with correct shade of filter.
2. Wear correct eye and body protection.
3. Cover exposed skin with spatter-resistant
clothing.
HOT SURFACES can burn skin.
1. Allow gun to cool before touching.
2. Do not touch hot metal.
3. Protect hot metal from contact by others.
NOISE can damage hearing; SOME
APPLICATIONS, SUCH AS PULSING,
are noisy.
1. Check for noise level limits exceeding those
specified by OSHA.
2. Use approved ear plugs or ear muffs if noise level
is high.
3. Warn others nearby about noise hazard.
WELDING WIRE can cause puncture
wounds.
1. Keep hands and body away from gun tip when
trigger is pressed.
EMF INFORMATION
NOTE
Considerations About Welding And The Effects Of Low Frequency Electric And
Magnetic Fields
The following is a quotation from the General Conclusions Section of
the U.S. Congress, Office of Technology Assessment, Biological
Effects of Power Frequency Electric & Magnetic Fields –
Background Paper, OTA-BP-E-53 (Washington, DC: U.S.
Government Printing Office, May 1989): “. . . there is now a very large
volume of scientific findings based on experiments at the cellular
level and from studies with animals and people which clearly
establish that low frequency magnetic fields can interact with, and
produce changes in, biological systems. While most of this work is
of very high quality, the results are complex. Current scientific
understanding does not yet allow us to interpret the evidence in a
single coherent framework. Even more frustrating, it does not yet
allow us to draw definite conclusions about questions of possible risk
or to offer clear science-based advice on strategies to minimize or
avoid potential risks.”
To reduce magnetic fields in the workplace, use the following
procedures:
1. Keep cables close together by twisting or taping them.
2. Arrange cables to one side and away from the operator.
3. Do not coil or drape cables around the body.
4. Keep welding power source and cables as far away as practical.
5. Connect work clamp to workpiece as close to the weld as
possible.
About Pacemakers:
The above procedures are among those also normally
recommended for pacemaker wearers. Consult your doctor for
complete information.

MILLER PRODUCTS ARE INTENDED FOR PURCHASE

PERSONS TRAINED AND EXPERIENCED IN THE USE

In the event of a warranty claim covered by this warranty, the

replacement; or, where authorized in writing by Miller in
appropriate cases, (3) the reasonable cost of repair or

Miller. Therefore no compensation or reimbursement for
transportation costs of any kind will be allowed.
TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, THE REMEDIES
PROVIDED HEREIN ARE THE SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE
REMEDIES. IN NO EVENT SHALL MILLER BE LIABLE FOR
DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOSS OF
PROFIT), WHETHER BASED ON CONTRACT, TORT OR
ANY OTHER LEGAL THEORY.
ANY EXPRESS WARRANTY NOT PROVIDED HEREIN

EQUIPMENT FURNISHED BY MILLER IS EXCLUDED AND
DISCLAIMED BY MILLER.
Some states in the U.S.A. do not allow limitations of how long
an implied warranty lasts, or the exclusion of incidental,
indirect, special or consequential damages, so the above
limitation or exclusion may not apply to you. This warranty
provides specific legal rights, and other rights may be
available, but may vary from state to state.
In Canada, legislation in some provinces provides for certain
additional warranties or remedies other than as stated herein,
and to the extent that they may not be waived, the limitations
and exclusions set out above may not apply. This Limited
Warranty provides specific legal rights, and other rights may
be available, but may vary from province to province.
