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

SECTION 1 − SAFETY PRECAUTIONS − READ BEFORE USING
rom _nd_10/04
Warning: Protect yourself and others from injury — read and follow these precautions.
1-1. Symbol Usage
Means Warning! Watch Out! There are possible hazards
with this procedure! The possible hazards are shown in
the adjoining symbols.
Marks a special safety message.
Means “Note”; not safety related.
This group of symbols means Warning! Watch Out! possible
ELECTRIC SHOCK, MOVING PARTS, and HOT PARTS hazards.
Consult symbols and related instructions below for necessary actions
to avoid the hazards.
1-2. Arc Welding Hazards
Use only well-maintained equipment. Repair or replace damaged parts at
once. Maintain unit according to manual.
Wear a safety harness if working above floor level.
Keep all panels and covers securely in place.
Only qualified persons should install, operate, maintain, and repair this unit.
Clamp work cable with good metal-to-metal contact to workpiece or worktable as near the weld as practical.
During operation, keep everybody, especially children, away.
Insulate work clamp when not connected to workpiece to prevent contact
with any metal object.
Do not connect more than one electrode or work cable to any single weld
output terminal.
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 1-7. Read and follow all Safety Standards.
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.
Do not touch live electrical parts.
Wear dry, hole-free insulating gloves and body protection.
Insulate yourself from work and ground using dry insulating mats or covers
big enough to prevent any physical contact with the work or ground.
Do not use AC output in damp areas, if movement is confined, or if there is a
danger of falling.
Use AC output ONLY if required for the welding process.
If AC output is required, use remote output control if present on unit.
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!
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).
Properly install and ground this equipment according to its Owner’s Manual
and national, state, and local codes.
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.
When making input connections, attach proper grounding conductor first −
double-check connections.
Frequently inspect input power cord for damage or bare wiring — replace
cord immediately if damaged — bare wiring can kill.
Turn off all equipment when not in use.
Do not use worn, damaged, undersized, or poorly spliced cables.
Do not drape cables over your body.
If earth grounding of the workpiece is required, ground it directly with a separate cable.
Do not touch electrode if you are in contact with the work, ground, or another electrode from a different machine.
SIGNIFICANT DC VOLTAGE exists in inverters after stopping engine.
Stop engine on inverter and discharge input capacitors according to
instructions in Maintenance Section before touching any parts.
FUMES AND GASES can be hazardous.
Welding produces fumes and gases. Breathing these fumes
and gases can be hazardous to your health.
Keep your head out of the fumes. Do not breathe the fumes.
If inside, ventilate the area and/or use exhaust at the arc to remove welding
fumes and gases.
If ventilation is poor, use an approved air-supplied respirator.
Read the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) and the manufacturer’s
instructions for metals, consumables, coatings, cleaners, and degreasers.
Work in a confined space only if it is well ventilated, or while wearing an airsupplied 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.
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.
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 if necessary, while wearing an air-supplied respirator. The
coatings and any metals containing these elements can give off toxic fumes
if welded.
BUILDUP OF GAS can injure or kill.
Shut off shielding gas supply when not in use.
Always ventilate confined spaces or use approved
air-supplied respirator.
ARC RAYS can burn eyes and skin.
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 a welding helmet fitted with a proper shade of filter 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 and glare;
warn others not to watch the arc.
Wear protective clothing made from durable, flame-resistant material (wool
and leather) and foot protection.
OM-4415 Page 1
WELDING can cause fire or explosion.
HOT PARTS can cause severe burns.
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.
Protect yourself and others from flying sparks and hot metal.
Do not weld where flying sparks can strike flammable material.
Remove all flammables within 35 ft (10.7 m) of the welding arc. If this is not
possible, tightly cover them with approved covers.
Be alert that welding sparks and hot materials from welding can easily go
through small cracks and openings to adjacent areas.
Watch for fire, and keep a fire extinguisher nearby.
Be aware that welding on a ceiling, floor, bulkhead, or partition can cause
fire on the hidden side.
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).
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 and fire hazards.
Do not use welder to thaw frozen pipes.
Remove stick electrode from holder or cut off welding wire at contact tip
when not in use.
Wear oil-free protective garments such as leather gloves, heavy shirt, cuffless trousers, high shoes, and a cap.
Remove any combustibles, such as a butane lighter or matches, from your
person before doing any welding.
Follow requirements in OSHA 1910.252 (a) (2) (iv) and NFPA 51B for hot
work and have a fire watcher and extinguisher nearby.
FLYING METAL can injure eyes.
Welding, chipping, wire brushing, and grinding cause
sparks and flying metal. As welds cool, they can
throw off slag.
Wear approved safety glasses with side shields even
under your welding helmet.
Allow cooling period before maintaining.
Wear protective gloves and clothing when working on
a hot engine.
Do not touch hot engine parts or just-welded parts
bare-handed.
NOISE can damage hearing.
Noise from some processes or equipment can damage
hearing.
Wear approved ear protection if noise level is high.
MAGNETIC FIELDS can affect pacemakers.
Pacemaker wearers keep away.
Wearers should consult their doctor before going
near arc welding, gouging, or spot welding operations.
CYLINDERS can explode if damaged.
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, 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.
Use only correct shielding gas cylinders, regulators, hoses, and fittings designed for the specific application; maintain them and associated parts in
good condition.
Turn face away from valve outlet when opening cylinder valve.
Keep protective cap in place over valve except when cylinder is in use or
connected for use.
Read and follow instructions on compressed gas cylinders, associated
equipment, and CGA publication P-1 listed in Safety Standards.

1-8. EMF Information
Considerations About Welding And The Effects Of Low Frequency
Electric And Magnetic Fields
Welding current, as it flows through welding cables, will cause electromagnetic fields. There has been and still is some concern about such
fields. However, after examining more than 500 studies spanning 17
years of research, a special blue ribbon committee of the National
Research Council concluded that: “The body of evidence, in the
committee’s judgment, has not demonstrated that exposure to powerfrequency electric and magnetic fields is a human-health hazard.”
However, studies are still going forth and evidence continues to be
examined. Until the final conclusions of the research are reached, you
may wish to minimize your exposure to electromagnetic fields when
welding or cutting.
OM-4415 Page 4
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 your body.
4. Keep welding power source and cables as far away from
operator as practical.
5. Connect work clamp to workpiece as close to the weld as
possible.
About Pacemakers:
Pacemaker wearers consult your doctor first. If cleared by your doctor,
then following the above procedures is recommended.

PIÈCES CHAUDES. Reportez-vous aux symboles et aux directives ci-dessous afin de connaître les mesures à prendre pour éviter tout danger.
2-2. Dangers relatifs au soudage à l’arc
Les symboles présentés ci-après sont utilisés tout au long du
présent manuel pour attirer votre attention et identifier les risques de danger. Lorsque vous voyez un symbole, soyez
vigilant et suivez les directives mentionnées afin d’éviter tout
danger. Les consignes de sécurité présentées ci-après ne font
que résumer l’information contenue dans les normes de sécurité énumérées à la section 2-6 . Veuillez lire et respecter toutes
ces normes de sécurité.
L’installation, l’utilisation, l’entretien et les réparations ne
doivent être confiés qu’à des personnes qualifiées.
Au cours de l’utilisation, tenir toute personne à l’écart et plus
particulièrement les enfants.
En effectuant les raccordements d’entrée fixer d’abord le conducteur de
mise à la terre approprié et contre-vérifier les connexions.
Vérifier fréquemment le cordon d’alimentation pour voir s’il n’est pas endommagé ou dénudé − remplacer le cordon immédiatement s’il est
endommagé − un câble dénudé peut provoquer une électrocution.
Mettre l’appareil hors tension quand on ne l’utilise pas.
Ne pas utiliser des câbles usés, endommagés, de grosseur insuffisante ou
mal épissés.
Ne pas enrouler les câbles autour du corps.
Si la pièce soudée doit être mise à la terre, le faire directement avec un
câble distinct − ne pas utiliser le connecteur de pièce ou le câble de retour.
Ne pas toucher l’électrode quand on est en contact avec la pièce, la terre ou
une électrode provenant d’une autre machine.
N’utiliser qu’un matériel en bon état. Réparer ou remplacer sur-le-champ
les pièces endommagées. Entretenir l’appareil conformément à ce
manuel.
Porter un harnais de sécurité quand on travaille en hauteur.
Maintenir solidement en place tous les panneaux et capots.
Fixer le câble de retour de façon à obtenir un bon contact métal-métal avec
la pièce à souder ou la table de travail, le plus près possible de la soudure.
Isoler la pince de masse quand pas mis à la pièce pour éviter le contact
avec tout objet métallique.
UN CHOC ÉLECTRIQUE peut tuer.
Un simple contact avec des pièces électriques peut
provoquer une électrocution ou des blessures graves.
L’électrode et le circuit de soudage sont sous tension dès
que l’appareil est sur ON. Le circuit d’entrée et les circuits
internes de l’appareil sont également sous tension à ce
moment-là. En soudage semi-automatique ou automatique, le fil, le dévidoir, le
logement des galets d’entraînement et les pièces métalliques en contact avec
le fil de soudage sont sous tension. Des matériels mal installés ou mal mis à la
terre présentent un danger.
Une tension DC importante subsiste à l’intérieur
des onduleurs après avoir coupé l’alimentation.
Couper l’alimentation du poste et décharger les condensateurs d’entrée
comme indiqué dans la Section Maintenance avant de toucher des composants.
Ne jamais toucher les pièces électriques sous tension.
Porter des gants et des vêtements de protection secs ne comportant pas
de trous.
S’isoler de la pièce et de la terre au moyen de tapis ou d’autres moyens isolants suffisamment grands pour empêcher le contact physique éventuel
avec la pièce ou la terre.
LES FUMÉES ET LES GAZ peuvent
être dangereux.
Ne pas se servir de source électrique à courant électrique dans les zones
humides, dans les endroits confinés ou là où on risque de tomber.
Le soudage génère des fumées et des gaz. Leur inhalation
peut être dangereux pour votre santé.
Se servir d’une source électrique à courant électrique UNIQUEMENT si le
procédé de soudage le demande.
Eloigner votre tête des fumées. Ne pas respirer les fumées.
Si l’utilisation d’une source électrique à courant électrique s’avère nécessaire, se servir de la fonction de télécommande si l’appareil en est équipé.
À l’intérieur, ventiler la zone et/ou utiliser un échappement au niveau de
l’arc pour l’évacuation des fumées et des gaz de soudage.
Des précautions de sécurité supplémentaires sont requises dans des environnements à risque comme: les endroits humides ou lorsque l’on porte
des vêtements mouillés; sur des structures métalliques au sol, grillages et
échafaudages; dans des positions assises, à genoux et allongées; ou
quand il y a un risque important de contact accidentel avec la pièce ou le
sol. Dans ces cas utiliser les appareils suivants dans l’ordre de préférence:
1) un poste à souder DC semi−automatique de type CV (MIG/MAG), 2) un
poste à souder manuel (électrode enrobée) DC, 3) un poste à souder manuel AC avec tension à vide réduite. Dans la plupart des cas, un poste
courant continu de type CV est recommandé. Et, ne pas travailler seul!
Si la ventilation est insuffisante, utiliser un respirateur à alimentation d’air
homologué.
Lire les spécifications de sécurité des matériaux (MSDSs) et les instructions du fabricant concernant les métaux, les consommables, les
revêtements, les nettoyants et les dégraisseurs.
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.
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.
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 si nécessaire, 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.
Couper l’alimentation ou arrêter le moteur avant de procéder à l’installation,
à la réparation ou à l’entretien de l’appareil. Déverrouiller l’alimentation
selon la norme OSHA 29 CFR 1910.147 (voir normes de sécurité).
Installer et mettre à la terre correctement cet appareil conformément à son
manuel d’utilisation et aux codes nationaux, provinciaux et municipaux.
Toujours vérifier la terre du cordon d’alimentation − Vérifier et s’assurer que
le fil de terre du cordon d’alimentation est bien raccordé à la borne de terre
du sectionneur ou que la fiche du cordon est raccordée à une prise
correctement mise à la terre.
OM-4415 Page 5
LES ACCUMULATIONS DE GAZ risquent de provoquer des blessures ou
même la mort.
Fermer l’alimentation du gaz protecteur en cas de
non utilisation.
Veiller toujours à bien aérer les espaces confinés ou se servir d’un respirateur d’adduction d’air homologué.
Suivre les recommandations dans OSHA 1910.252(a)(2)(iv) et NFPA 51B
pour les travaux à chaud et avoir de la surveillance et un extincteur à proximité.
DES PARTICULES VOLANTES
peuvent blesser les yeux.
LES RAYONS DE L’ARC peuvent provoquer des brûlures dans les yeux et
sur la peau.
Le soudage, l’écaillement, le passage de la pièce
à la brosse en fil de fer, et le meulage génèrent
des étincelles et des particules métalliques volantes. Pendant la période de refroidissement des soudures, elles risquent de projeter du laitier.
DES PIÈCES CHAUDES peuvent
provoquer des brûlures graves.
Le rayonnement de l’arc du procédé de soudage génère
des rayons visibles et invisibles intenses (ultraviolets et
infrarouges) susceptibles de provoquer des brûlures dans les yeux et sur la
peau. Des étincelles sont projetées pendant le soudage.
Porter un casque de soudage muni d’un écran de filtre approprié 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).
Porter des protections approuvés pour les oreilles si le niveau sonore est
trop élevé.
Utiliser des écrans ou des barrières pour protéger des tiers de l’éclair et de
l’éblouissement; demander aux autres personnes de ne pas regarder l’arc.
Porter des vêtements de protection constitué dans une matière durable, résistant au feu (laine ou cuir) et une protection des pieds.
Porter des lunettes de sécurité avec écrans latéraux ou un écran facial.
Prévoir une période de refroidissement avant d’effectuer des travaux d’entretien.
Porter des gants et des vêtements de protection pour
travailler sur un moteur chaud.
Ne pas toucher à mains nues les parties chaudes du moteur ni les pièces
récemment soudées.
LE BRUIT peut affecter l’ouïe.
Le bruit des processus et des équipements peut affecter
l’ouïe.
LE SOUDAGE peut provoquer un incendie ou une explosion.
Porter des protections approuvés pour les oreilles si
le niveau sonore est trop élevé.
Le soudage effectué sur des conteneurs fermés tels que
des réservoirs, tambours ou des conduites peut provoquer
leur éclatement. Des étincelles peuvent être projetées de
l’arc de soudure. La projection d’étincelles, des pièces chaudes et des
équipements chauds peut provoquer des incendies et des brûlures. Le contact
accidentel de l’électrode avec des objets métalliques peut provoquer des
étincelles, une explosion, un surchauffement ou un incendie. Avant de
commencer le soudage, vérifier et s’assurer que l’endroit ne présente pas de
danger.
LES CHAMPS MAGNÉTIQUES peuvent
affecter les stimulateurs cardiaques.
Se protéger et d’autres personnes de la projection d’étincelles et de métal
chaud.
Ne pas souder dans un endroit là où des étincelles peuvent tomber sur des
substances inflammables.
Si des BOUTEILLES sont endommagées, elles pourront exploser.
Déplacer toutes les substances inflammables à une distance de 10,7 m de
l’arc de soudage. En cas d’impossibilité les recouvrir soigneusement avec
des protections homologués.
Des étincelles et des matériaux chauds du soudage peuvent facilement
passer dans d’autres zones en traversant de petites fissures et des
ouvertures.
Des bouteilles de gaz protecteur contiennent du gaz sous
haute pression. Si une bouteille est endommagée, elle peut
exploser. Du fait que les bouteilles de gaz font normalement partie du procédé de soudage, les manipuler avec
précaution.
Surveiller tout déclenchement d’incendie et tenir un extincteur à proximité.
Le soudage effectué sur un plafond, plancher, paroi ou séparation peut déclencher un incendie de l’autre côté.
Ne pas effectuer le soudage sur des conteneurs fermés tels que des réservoirs, tambours, ou conduites, à moins qu’ils n’aient été préparés
correctement conformément à AWS F4.1 (voir les normes de sécurité).
Brancher le câble sur la pièce le plus près possible de la zone de soudage
pour éviter le transport du courant sur une longue distance par des chemins inconnus éventuels en provoquant des risques d’électrocution et
d’incendie.
Ne pas utiliser le poste de soudage pour dégeler des conduites gelées.
En cas de non utilisation, enlever la baguette d’électrode du porte-électrode ou couper le fil à la pointe de contact.
Porter des vêtements de protection dépourvus d’huile tels que des gants
en cuir, une chemise en matériau lourd, des pantalons sans revers, des
chaussures hautes et un couvre chef.
Avant de souder, retirer toute substance combustible de vos poches telles
qu’un allumeur au butane ou des allumettes.
Porteurs de stimulateur cardiaque, restez à distance.
Les porteurs d’un stimulateur cardiaque doivent
d’abord consulter leur médecin avant de s’approcher
des opérations de soudage à l’arc, de gougeage ou
de soudage par points.
Protéger les bouteilles de gaz comprimé d’une chaleur excessive, des
chocs mécaniques, du laitier, des flammes ouvertes, des étincelles et des
arcs.

dans un porte-bouteilles pour les empêcher de tomber ou de se renverser.
Tenir les bouteilles éloignées des circuits de soudage ou autres circuits
électriques.
Ne jamais placer une torche de soudage sur une bouteille à gaz.
Une électrode de soudage ne doit jamais entrer en contact avec une bouteille.
Ne jamais souder une bouteille pressurisée − risque d’explosion.
Utiliser seulement des bouteilles de gaz protecteur, régulateurs, tuyaux et
raccords convenables pour cette application spécifique; les maintenir ainsi
que les éléments associés en bon état.
Ne pas tenir la tête en face de la sortie en ouvrant la soupape de la bouteille.
Maintenir le chapeau de protection sur la soupape, sauf en cas d’utilisation
ou de branchement de la bouteille.
Lire et suivre les instructions concernant les bouteilles de gaz comprimé,
les équipements associés et les publication P-1 CGA énumérées dans les
normes de sécurité.

Données sur le soudage électrique et les effets des champs magnétiques
basse fréquence sur l’organisme
En parcourant les câbles de soudage, le courant crée des champs électromagnétiques. Les effets potentiels de tels champs restent préoccupants.
Cependant, après avoir examiné plus de 500 études qui ont été faites pendant une période de recherche de 17 ans, un comité de spécialistes du
National Research Council a conclu : « L’accumulation de preuves n’a pas
démontré que l’exposition aux champs magnétiques et aux champs électriques à haute fréquence constitue un risque pour la santé humaine ».
Toutefois, les études et l’examen des preuves se poursuivent. En attendant
les conclusions finales de la recherche, il serait souhaitable de réduire l’exposition aux champs électromagnétiques pendant le soudage ou le
coupage.
OM-4415 Page 8
Afin de réduire les champs électromagnétiques en milieu de travail, respecter les consignes suivantes :
1. Garder les câbles ensemble en les torsadant ou en les fixant avec du
ruban adhésif.
2. Mettre tous les câbles du côté opposé à l’opérateur.
3. Ne pas s’enrouler les câbles autour du corps.
4. Garder le poste de soudage et les câbles le plus loin possible de soi.
5. Placer la pince de masse le plus près possible de la zone de soudage.
Consignes relatives aux stimulateurs cardiaques :
Les personnes qui portent un stimulateur cardiaque doivent avant tout
consulter leur médecin. Si ce dernier les déclare aptes, il leur est recommandé de respecter les consignes ci-dessus.

Rating Data
Rating shows volts and amperes, or
watts required to run equipment.
AMPERES x VOLTS = WATTS
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.
(200 W + 200 W + 200 W) + 520 W = 1120 W
The total load applied by the three flood lamps and drill is 1120 watts.

equipment according to its Owner’s
Manual and national, state, and local
codes.
Install correct switch (customer-supplied).
Switch rating must be same as or greater
than the branch overcurrent protection.
Customer-supplied
equipment is required if generator will supply standby
power during emergencies or power outages.
1 Utility Electrical Service
2 Transfer Switch (Double-Throw)
3 Fused Disconnect Switch
Install correct switch (customer-supplied) 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 11-4).

12-14. Troubleshooting − Porosity
Porosity − small cavities or holes resulting from gas
pockets in weld metal.
Possible Causes
Corrective Actions
Arc length too long.
Reduce arc length.
Damp electrode.
Use dry electrode.
Workpiece dirty.
Remove all grease, oil, moisture, rust, paint, coatings, slag, and dirt from work surface before
welding.
12-15. Troubleshooting − Excessive Spatter
Excessive Spatter − scattering of molten metal particles
that cool to solid form near weld bead.
Possible Causes
Corrective Actions
Amperage too high for electrode.
Decrease amperage or select larger electrode.
Arc length too long or voltage too high.
Reduce arc length or voltage.
OM-4415 Page 42
12-16. Troubleshooting − Incomplete Fusion
Incomplete Fusion − failure of weld metal to fuse completely with
base metal or a preceeding weld bead.
Possible Causes
Corrective Actions
Insufficient heat input.
Increase amperage. Select larger electrode and increase amperage.
Improper welding technique.
Place stringer bead in proper location(s) at joint during welding.
Adjust work angle or widen groove to access bottom during welding.
Momentarily hold arc on groove side walls when using weaving technique.
Keep arc on leading edge of weld puddle.
Workpiece dirty.
Remove all grease, oil, moisture, rust, paint, coatings, slag, and dirt from work surface before
welding.
12-17. Troubleshooting − Lack Of Penetration
Lack Of Penetration − shallow fusion between weld metal and
base metal.
Lack of Penetration
Good Penetration
Possible Causes
Corrective Actions
Improper joint preparation.
Material too thick. Joint preparation and design must provide access to bottom of groove.
Improper weld technique.
Keep arc on leading edge of weld puddle.
Insufficient heat input.
Increase amperage. Select larger electrode and increase amperage.
Reduce travel speed.
12-18. Troubleshooting − Excessive Penetration
Excessive Penetration − weld metal melting through base metal and
hanging underneath weld.
Excessive Penetration
Possible Causes
Excessive heat input.
Good Penetration
Corrective Actions
Select lower amperage. Use smaller electrode.
Increase and/or maintain steady travel speed.
OM-4415 Page 43
12-19. Troubleshooting − Burn-Through
Burn-Through − weld metal melting completely through base metal resulting
in holes where no metal remains.
Possible Causes
Excessive heat input.
Corrective Actions
Select lower amperage. Use smaller electrode.
Increase and/or maintain steady travel speed.
12-20. Troubleshooting − Waviness Of Bead
Waviness Of Bead − weld metal that is not parallel and does not cover
joint formed by base metal.
Possible Causes
Unsteady hand.
Corrective Actions
Use two hands. Practice technique.
12-21. Troubleshooting − Distortion
Distortion − contraction of weld metal during welding that forces base
metal to move.
Base metal moves
in the direction of
the weld bead.
Possible Causes
Excessive heat input.
Corrective Actions
Use restraint (clamp) to hold base metal in position.
Make tack welds along joint before starting welding operation.
Select lower amperage for electrode.
Increase travel speed.
Weld in small segments and allow cooling between welds.
