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 figure out what the problem is. The

1-2. Arc Welding Hazards
The symbols shown below are used throughout this manual
to call attention to and identify possible hazards. When you
see the symbol, watch out, and follow the related instructions
to avoid the hazard. The safety information given below is
only a summary of the more complete safety information
found in the Safety Standards listed in Section 1-8. Read and
follow all Safety Standards.
Only qualified persons should install, operate, maintain, and
repair this unit.
During operation, keep everybody, especially children, away.
ELECTRIC SHOCK can kill.
Touching live electrical parts can cause fatal shocks or
severe burns. The electrode and work circuit is
electrically live whenever the output is on. The input
power circuit and machine internal circuits are also live
when power is on. In semiautomatic or automatic wire
welding, the wire, wire reel, drive roll housing, and all
metal parts touching the welding wire are electrically
live. Incorrectly installed or improperly grounded
equipment is a hazard.
D Do not touch live electrical parts.
D Wear dry, hole-free insulating gloves and body protection.
D Insulate yourself from work and ground using dry insulating mats
or covers big enough to prevent any physical contact with the work
or ground.
D Do not use AC output in damp areas, if movement is confined, or if
there is a danger of falling.
D Use AC output ONLY if required for the welding process.
D If AC output is required, use remote output control if present on
unit.
D Additional safety precautions are required when any of the following electrically hazardous conditions are present: in damp
locations or while wearing wet clothing; on metal structures such
as floors, gratings, or scaffolds; when in cramped positions such
as sitting, kneeling, or lying; or when there is a high risk of unavoidable or accidental contact with the workpiece or ground. For these
conditions, use the following equipment in order presented: 1) a
semiautomatic DC constant voltage (wire) welder, 2) a DC manual
(stick) welder, or 3) an AC welder with reduced open-circuit voltage. In most situations, use of a DC, constant voltage wire welder
is recommended. And, do not work alone!
D Disconnect input power or stop engine before installing or
servicing this equipment. Lockout/tagout input power according to
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.147 (see Safety Standards).
D Properly install and ground this equipment according to its
Owner’s Manual and national, state, and local codes.
D Always verify the supply ground — check and be sure that input
power cord ground wire is properly connected to ground terminal in
disconnect box or that cord plug is connected to a properly
grounded receptacle outlet.
D When making input connections, attach proper grounding conductor first − double-check connections.
D Keep cords dry, free of oil and grease, and protected from hot metal
and sparks.
D Frequently inspect input power cord for damage or bare wiring —
replace cord immediately if damaged — bare wiring can kill.
D Turn off all equipment when not in use.
D Do not use worn, damaged, undersized, or poorly spliced cables.
D Do not drape cables over your body.
D If earth grounding of the workpiece is required, ground it directly
with a separate cable.
D Do not touch electrode if you are in contact with the work, ground,
or another electrode from a different machine.
D Use only well-maintained equipment. Repair or replace damaged
parts at once. Maintain unit according to manual.
D Do not touch electrode holders connected to two welding machines at the same time since double open-circuit voltage will be
present.
D Wear a safety harness if working above floor level.
D Keep all panels and covers securely in place.
D Clamp work cable with good metal-to-metal contact to workpiece
or worktable as near the weld as practical.
D Insulate work clamp when not connected to workpiece to prevent
contact with any metal object.
D Do not connect more than one electrode or work cable to any
single weld output terminal.
SIGNIFICANT DC VOLTAGE exists in inverter power
sources AFTER stopping engine.
D Stop engine on inverter and discharge input capacitors according
to instructions in Maintenance Section before touching any parts.
HOT PARTS can burn.
D Do not touch hot parts bare handed.
D Allow cooling period before working on equipment.
D To handle hot parts, use proper tools and/or wear heavy, insulated welding gloves and clothing to prevent burns.
FLYING METAL or DIRT can injure eyes.
D Welding, chipping, wire brushing, and grinding
cause sparks and flying metal. As welds cool,
they can throw off slag.
D Wear approved safety glasses with side shields even under your
welding helmet.
OM-217 454 Page 1
FUMES AND GASES can be hazardous.
Welding produces fumes and gases. Breathing these
fumes and gases can be hazardous to your health.
D Keep your head out of the fumes. Do not breathe the fumes.
D If inside, ventilate the area and/or use local forced ventilation at the
arc to remove welding fumes and gases.
D If ventilation is poor, wear an approved air-supplied respirator.
D Read and understand the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs)
and the manufacturer’s instructions for metals, consumables,
coatings, cleaners, and degreasers.
D Work in a confined space only if it is well ventilated, or while
wearing an air-supplied respirator. Always have a trained watchperson nearby. Welding fumes and gases can displace air and
lower the oxygen level causing injury or death. Be sure the breathing air is safe.
D Do not weld in locations near degreasing, cleaning, or spraying operations. The heat and rays of the arc can react with vapors to form
highly toxic and irritating gases.
D Do not weld on coated metals, such as galvanized, lead, or
cadmium plated steel, unless the coating is removed from the weld
area, the area is well ventilated, and while wearing an air-supplied
respirator. The coatings and any metals containing these elements
can give off toxic fumes if welded.
D Do not weld on closed containers such as tanks, drums, or pipes,
unless they are properly prepared according to AWS F4.1 (see
Safety Standards).
D Do not weld where the atmosphere may contain flammable dust,
gas, or liquid vapors (such as gasoline).
D Connect work cable to the work as close to the welding area as
practical to prevent welding current from traveling long, possibly
unknown paths and causing electric shock, sparks, and fire hazards.
D Do not use welder to thaw frozen pipes.
D Remove stick electrode from holder or cut off welding wire at
contact tip when not in use.
D Wear oil-free protective garments such as leather gloves, heavy
shirt, cuffless trousers, high shoes, and a cap.
D Remove any combustibles, such as a butane lighter or matches,
from your person before doing any welding.
D After completion of work, inspect area to ensure it is free of sparks,
glowing embers, and flames.
D Use only correct fuses or circuit breakers. Do not oversize or bypass them.
D Follow requirements in OSHA 1910.252 (a) (2) (iv) and NFPA 51B
for hot work and have a fire watcher and extinguisher nearby.
NOISE can damage hearing.
BUILDUP OF GAS can injure or kill.
Noise from some processes or equipment can damage hearing.
D Shut off shielding gas supply when not in use.
D Always ventilate confined spaces or use approved air-supplied respirator.
D Wear approved ear protection if noise level is
high.
ELECTRIC AND MAGNETIC FIELDS (EMF)
can affect Implanted Medical Devices.
ARC RAYS can burn eyes and skin.
D
D
D
D
Arc rays from the welding process produce intense
visible and invisible (ultraviolet and infrared) rays that
can burn eyes and skin. Sparks fly off from the weld.
Wear an approved welding helmet fitted with a proper shade of filter
lenses to protect your face and eyes from arc rays and sparks
when welding or watching (see ANSI Z49.1 and Z87.1 listed in
Safety Standards).
Wear approved safety glasses with side shields under your
helmet.
Use protective screens or barriers to protect others from flash,
glare, and sparks; warn others not to watch the arc.
Wear protective clothing made from durable, flame-resistant material (leather, heavy cotton, or wool) and foot protection.
WELDING can cause fire or explosion.
Welding on closed containers, such as tanks, drums,
or pipes, can cause them to blow up. Sparks can fly off
from the welding arc. The flying sparks, hot workpiece,
and hot equipment can cause fires and burns. Accidental contact of
electrode to metal objects can cause sparks, explosion, overheating,
or fire. Check and be sure the area is safe before doing any welding.
D Remove all flammables within 35 ft (10.7 m) of the welding arc. If
this is not possible, tightly cover them with approved covers.
D Do not weld where flying sparks can strike flammable material.
D Protect yourself and others from flying sparks and hot metal.
D Be alert that welding sparks and hot materials from welding can
easily go through small cracks and openings to adjacent areas.
D Watch for fire, and keep a fire extinguisher nearby.
D Be aware that welding on a ceiling, floor, bulkhead, or partition can
cause fire on the hidden side.

D Wearers of Pacemakers and other Implanted
Medical Devices should keep away.
D Implanted Medical Device wearers should consult their doctor
and the device manufacturer before going near arc welding, spot
welding, gouging, plasma arc cutting, or induction heating
operations.
CYLINDERS can explode if damaged.

D
Shielding gas cylinders contain gas under high pressure. If damaged, a cylinder can explode. Since gas
cylinders are normally part of the welding process, be
sure to treat them carefully.
Protect compressed gas cylinders from excessive heat, mechanical shocks, physical damage, slag, open flames, sparks, and arcs.
Install cylinders in an upright position by securing to a stationary
support or cylinder rack to prevent falling or tipping.
Keep cylinders away from any welding or other electrical circuits.
Never drape a welding torch over a gas cylinder.
Never allow a welding electrode to touch any cylinder.
Never weld on a pressurized cylinder — explosion will result.
D Use only correct shielding gas cylinders, regulators, hoses, and fittings designed for the specific application; maintain them and
associated parts in good condition.

1-9. EMF Information
Electric current flowing through any conductor causes localized electric
and magnetic fields (EMF). Welding current creates an EMF field
around the welding circuit and welding equipment. EMF fields may interfere with some medical implants, e.g. pacemakers. Protective
measures for persons wearing medical implants have to be taken. For
example, access restrictions for passers−by or individual risk assessment for welders. All welders should use the following procedures in
order to minimize exposure to EMF fields from the welding circuit:
1. Keep cables close together by twisting or taping them, or using a
cable cover.
2. Do not place your body between welding cables. Arrange cables
to one side and away from the operator.
3. Do not coil or drape cables around your body.
4. Keep head and trunk as far away from the equipment in the
welding circuit as possible.
5. Connect work clamp to workpiece as close to the weld as
possible.
6. Do not work next to, sit or lean on the welding power source.
7. Do not weld whilst carrying the welding power source or wire
feeder.
About Implanted Medical Devices:
Implanted Medical Device wearers should consult their doctor and the
device manufacturer before performing or going near arc welding, spot
welding, gouging, plasma arc cutting, or induction heating operations.
If cleared by your doctor, then following the above procedures is recommended.

D Travailler dans un espace fermé seulement s’il est bien ventilé ou
en portant un respirateur à alimentation d’air. Demander toujours à
un surveillant dûment formé de se tenir à proximité. Des fumées et
des gaz de soudage peuvent déplacer l’air et abaisser le niveau
d’oxygène provoquant des blessures ou des accidents mortels.
S’assurer que l’air de respiration ne présente aucun danger.
D Ne pas souder dans des endroits situés à proximité d’opérations
de dégraissage, de nettoyage ou de pulvérisation. La chaleur et
les rayons de l’arc peuvent réagir en présence de vapeurs et former des gaz hautement toxiques et irritants.
D Ne pas souder des métaux munis d’un revêtement, tels que l’acier
galvanisé, plaqué en plomb ou au cadmium à moins que le revêtement n’ait été enlevé dans la zone de soudure, que l’endroit soit
bien ventilé, et en portant un respirateur à alimentation d’air. Les
revêtements et tous les métaux renfermant ces éléments peuvent
dégager des fumées toxiques en cas de soudage.
D Porter un casque de soudage approuvé muni de verres filtrants
approprié pour protéger visage et yeux pour protéger votre visage
et vos yeux pendant le soudage ou pour regarder (voir ANSI Z49.1
et Z87.1 énuméré dans les normes de sécurité).

2-9. Informations relatives aux CEM
Le courant électrique qui traverse tout conducteur génère des champs
électromagnétiques (CEM) à certains endroits. Le courant de soudage
crée un CEM autour du circuit et du matériel de soudage. Les CEM
peuvent créer des interférences avec certains implants médicaux
comme des stimulateurs cardiaques. Des mesures de protection pour
les porteurs d’implants médicaux doivent être prises: par exemple, des
restrictions d’accès pour les passants ou une évaluation individuelle
des risques pour les soudeurs. Tous les soudeurs doivent appliquer les
procédures suivantes pour minimiser l’exposition aux CEM provenant
du circuit de soudage:
4. Maintenir la tête et le torse aussi loin que possible du matériel du
circuit de soudage.
1. Rassembler les câbles en les torsadant ou en les attachant avec
du ruban adhésif ou avec une housse.
2. Ne pas se tenir au milieu des câbles de soudage. Disposer les
câbles d’un côté et à distance de l’opérateur.
3. Ne pas courber et ne pas entourer les câbles autour de votre
corps.
En ce qui concerne les implants médicaux :
5. Connecter la pince sur la pièce aussi près que possible de la
soudure.
6. Ne pas travailler à proximité d’une source de soudage, ni
s’asseoir ou se pencher dessus.
7. Ne pas souder tout en portant la source de soudage ou le
dévidoir.
Les porteurs d’implants doivent d’abord consulter leur médecin avant
de s’approcher des opérations de soudage à l’arc, de soudage par
points, de gougeage, du coupage plasma ou de chauffage par induction. Si le médecin approuve, il est recommandé de suivre les
procédures précédentes.

Engine Control Switch
Use switch to start engine, select speed, and
stop engine. In Run/Idle position, engine runs
at idle speed at no load, and weld/power speed
under load. In Speed Lock position, engine
speed is determined by position of Speed Lock
switch (see item 2 and engine speed table
above).
. Place Engine
Control switch in Speed
Lock position and Speed Lock switch in
Run position for TIG (GTAW) welding using a high frequency device.
. In MIG mode, the unit will not return to idle
speed when the remote contactor is on
(closure between pins A and B or I and J
on remote receptacle).
OM-217 454 Page 26
2 Speed Lock Switch
Use switch to lock engine in idle or weld/power
speed when Engine Control switch is in the
Speed Lock position. The Speed Lock switch
is not needed at start-up. The engine always
starts at idle speed.
With switch in the Idle position and Engine
Control switch in Speed Lock, the engine runs
at idle speed. With switch in Run position and
Engine Control switch in Speed Lock, engine
runs at weld/power speed.
Speed Lock switch does not affect engine
speed when Engine Control switch is in Run/
Idle position. (Engine speed changes with
load.)
3 Glow Plug Switch
If necessary, push switch down before startup to activate glow plug. See glow plug table
above for operating information.
To Start: Use glow plug switch if necessary
(see item 3 and glow plug table). Turn engine
control switch to Start. Release engine control
switch when engine starts.
. If the engine does not start, let the engine
come to a complete stop before attempting restart.
To Stop: Turn Engine Control switch to Off
position.
. Close fuel valve to stop engine if Engine
Control switch does not work (see Section
5-6).

1 Process/Contactor Switch
See Section 6-3 for Process/Contactor switch
information.
2 And 3 Displays
Displays can show weld process information
(voltage and amperage) or engine and maintenance information.
Meter Weld Functions: In Wire modes, Voltmeter displays preset weld voltage when not
welding. Meters display actual voltage and
amperage when welding and for five seconds
after welding has stopped.
In Stick and TIG modes, Voltmeter reads ON
and Ammeter displays preset amperage when
the contactor is on and not welding. The Voltmeter reads 0 (zero) when in remote with the
contactor off. Meters display actual voltage
and amperage when welding and for five seconds after welding has stopped.
Meter Engine And Maintenance Functions:
See inset from maintenance label.
If displays read: HLP_001, and engine does
not return to idle, check throttle solenoid. Turn
Engine Control switch to OFF to reset shutdown.
4
Voltage/Amperage Control
Use control to select weld voltage or
amperage. Control may be adjusted while
welding.
With Process/Contactor switch in any Stick or
TIG setting, use control to adjust amperage.
With Process/Contactor switch in any Wire
position, use control to adjust voltage. When a
remote voltage/amperage control is connected to Remote receptacle RC4, control
sets the maximum amperage in Stick and TIG
modes, but has no effect in MIG modes.
5
Remote Receptacle
Use receptacle to connect remote control or
wire feeder.
When a remote voltage/amperage control is
connected to the Remote receptacle, the Auto
Sense Remote feature automatically switches
voltage/amperage control to the remote control (see Sections 5-10 and 6-6).
With remote voltage/amperage control connected, weld output in CC mode is determined
by a combination of front panel and remote
control voltage/amperage settings. In CV
mode, weld output is controlled through remote control only.
If no remote voltage/amperage control is connected to the Remote receptacle, the front
panel Voltage/Amperage control adjusts voltage and amperage.

descriptions following (reading L to R):
!
Weld output terminals are energized
when Process/Contactor switch is
in an Electrode Hot position and the
engine is running.
Soft Arc (E 7018) - This setting provides a
low dig/arc force setting for smooth weld
performance. A stable weld puddle with
little arc “snap” gives excellent weld bead
appearance with minimal spatter.
. The unit will not return to idle speed
when Process/Contactor switch is in a
Wire position and the remote contactor
is on (closure between pins A and B on
remote receptacle).
Use switch to select weld process and weld
output on/off control (see table below and
Section 5-10).
Place switch in Remote positions to turn
weld output on and off with a device connected to the remote receptacle.
Place switch in Electrode Hot positions for
weld output to be on whenever the engine
is running.
Wire Positions:
Use Wire positions for MIG welding using a
voltage sensing wire feeder (Electrode Hot)
or wire feeder using remote control.
Stick Positions:
Use Stick positions for stick (SMAW) and
air carbon arc (CAC-A) cutting and
gouging.
Stick Electrode Hot:
When switch is in a Stick Electrode Hot
mode, select one of four dig settings to provide additional amperage during short arc
length conditions and help prevent electrodes from “sticking”. See Stick position
OM-217 454 Page 28
Medium Soft Arc - This setting provides a
low to medium dig/arc force that gives a
slightly more fluid weld puddle, more arc
“snap”, and reduces the potential for
electrode sticking at shorter arc lengths.
Medium Stiff Arc - This setting provides
medium dig/arc force for open root vertical
up joints or joints that do not require
additional current for fit up inconsistencies.
Stiff Arc (E6010) - This setting provides a
high dig/arc force for open root vertical
down joints where additional current is
needed to compensate for tight joint fit up
without the need to increase overall welding
current. This setting is recommended for
those who prefer a very stiff arc with 6010
electrodes.
Stick Remote On/Off:
When switch is in a Stick Remote On/Off
mode, select one of three settings to provide additional amperage during short arc
length conditions and help prevent electrodes from “sticking”. See Stick position
descriptions following (readingR to L):
Soft Arc (E7018) - This setting provides a
low to medium dig/arc force that gives a
slightly more fluid weld puddle, more arc
“snap”, and reduces the potential for
electrode sticking at shorter arc lengths.
Medium Arc - This setting provides medium dig/arc force for open root vertical up
joints or joints that do not require additional
current for fit up inconsistencies.
Stiff Arc (E6010) - This setting provides a
high dig/arc force for open root vertical
down joints where additional current is
needed to compensate for tight joint fit up
without the need to increase overall welding
current. This setting is recommended for
those who prefer a very stiff arc with 6010
electrodes.
The dig circuit is disabled when switch is in
Wire or TIG positions.
TIG Positions:
TIG − Remote On/Off − Use this position for
AC or DC TIG welding using remote on/off
control.
Electrode Hot − Lift-Arc™ w/Auto Crater™
TIG (DC only) - With switch in this position,
a low voltage (10 V DC) is present between
the electrode and workpiece preventing
overheating, sticking, or contamination of
the electrode (see Section 6-5) as the arc is
struck.
End the arc using the Auto-Crater feature
(see Section 6-5).
Electrode Hot − Lift-Arc™ w/Auto Stop™
TIG (DC only) - With switch in this position,
a low voltage (10 V DC) is present between
the electrode and workpiece preventing
overheating, sticking, or contamination of
the electrode (see Section 6-5) as the arc is
struck.
End the arc using the Auto-Stop feature
(see Section 6-5).

Rating Data
Rating shows volts and amperes, or
watts required to run equipment.
Amperes x Volts = Watts
3
Example 1: If a drill uses 4.5 amperes at 115 volts, calculate its running power requirement in watts.
4.5 A x 115 V = 520 W
The load applied by the drill is 520
watts.
Example 2: If three 200 watt flood
lamps are used with the drill from Example 1, add the individual loads to
calculate total load.
(3 x 200W) + 520 W = 1120 W
The total load applied by the three
flood lamps and drill is 1120 watts.

Motor Voltage
To find starting amperage:
Step 1: Find code and use table to
find kVA/HP. If code is not listed,
multiply running amperage by six to
find starting amperage.
Step 2: Find Motor HP and Volts.
Step 3: Determine starting amperage (see example).
Welding generator amperage output must be at least twice the
motor’s running amperage.
(kVA/HP x HP x 1000) / Volts =
Starting Amperage
Example: Calculate starting amperage required for a 230 V, 1/4 HP motor with a motor start code of M.
Volts = 230, HP = 1/4, kVA/HP =
11.2
(11.2 x 1/4 x 1000) / 230 = 12.2A
Starting the motor requires 12.2
amperes.

5 Second Rule
If motor does not start within 5
seconds, turn off power to prevent
motor damage. Motor requires
more power than generator can
supply.

2 Transfer Switch (Double-Throw)
Switch transfers the electrical load
from electric utility service to the
generator. Transfer load back to
electric utility when service is restored.
Install correct switch (customersupplied). Switch rating must be
same as or greater than the branch
overcurrent protection.
3 Fused Disconnect Switch
Install correct switch (customersupplied) if required by electrical
code.
4 Welding Generator Output
Generator output voltage and wiring must be consistent with regular
(utility) system voltage and wiring.
Connect generator with temporary
or permanent wiring suitable for the
installation.
Turn off or unplug all equipment
connected to generator before
starting or stopping engine. When
starting or stopping, the engine has
low speed which causes low voltage and frequency.
5 Essential Loads
Generator output may not meet the
electrical requirements of the premises. If generator does not produce
enough output to meet all requirements, connect only essential
loads (pumps, freezers, heaters,
etc. − See Section 13-4).
