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
Miller is the first welding parts list will then help you to decide the
equipment manufacturer in exact part you may need to fix the problem.

SECTION 1 − SAFETY PRECAUTIONS − READ BEFORE USING
rom_2013−09
Protect yourself and others from injury — read, follow, and save these important safety precautions and operating instructions.
1-1. Symbol Usage
DANGER! − Indicates a hazardous situation which, if
not avoided, will result in death or serious injury. The
possible hazards are shown in the adjoining symbols
or explained in the text.
Indicates a hazardous situation which, if not avoided,
could result in death or serious injury. The possible
hazards are shown in the adjoining symbols or explained in the text.
NOTICE − Indicates statements not related to personal injury.
Indicates special instructions.
This group of symbols means Warning! Watch Out! 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
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.
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.
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).
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.
Keep cords dry, free of oil and grease, and protected from hot metal
and sparks.
Frequently inspect input power cord and ground conductor for
damage or bare wiring – replace immediately if damaged – bare
wiring can kill.
Turn off all equipment when not in use.
Do not use worn, damaged, undersized, or repaired 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.
Use only well-maintained equipment. Repair or replace damaged
parts at once. Maintain unit according to manual.
Do not touch electrode holders connected to two welding machines at the same time since double open-circuit voltage will be
present.
Wear a safety harness if working above floor level.
Keep all panels and covers securely in place.
Clamp work cable with good metal-to-metal contact to workpiece
or worktable as near the weld as practical.
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. Disconnect cable for process not in
use.
Use GFCI protection when operating auxiliary equipment. Do not
test or reset GFCI receptacles at idle speed/low voltage or the
GFCI will be damaged and not provide protection from electric
shock caused by a ground fault.
SIGNIFICANT DC VOLTAGE exists in inverter power
sources AFTER stopping engine.
Stop engine on inverter and discharge input capacitors according
to instructions in Maintenance Section before touching any parts.
HOT PARTS can burn.
Do not touch hot parts bare handed.
Allow cooling period before working on equipment.
To handle hot parts, use proper tools and/or
wear heavy, insulated welding gloves and
clothing to prevent burns.
Properly install, ground, and operate this equipment according to
its Owner’s Manual and national, state, and local codes.

be
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 local forced ventilation at the
arc to remove welding fumes and gases. The recommended way
to determine adequate ventilation is to sample for the composition
and quantity of fumes and gases to which personnel are exposed.
If ventilation is poor, wear an approved air-supplied respirator.
Read and understand the Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) and the
manufacturer’s instructions for adhesives, coatings, cleaners,
consumables, coolants, degreasers, fluxes, and metals.
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.
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 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 compressed 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 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 body protection made from durable, flame-resistant material
(leather, heavy cotton, wool). Body protection includes oil-free
clothing such as leather gloves, heavy shirt, cuffless trousers, high
shoes, and a cap.
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.
Remove all flammables within 35 ft (10.7 m) of the welding arc. If
this is not possible, tightly cover them with approved covers.
Do not weld where flying sparks can strike flammable material.
Protect yourself and others from flying sparks and hot metal.
OM-264 359 Page 2
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 containers that have held combustibles, or on
closed containers such as tanks, drums, or pipes unless they are
properly prepared according to AWS F4.1 and AWS A6.0 (see
Safety Standards).
Do not weld where the atmosphere may contain flammable dust,
gas, or liquid vapors (such as gasoline).
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.
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 body protection made from durable, flame-resistant material
(leather, heavy cotton, wool). Body protection includes oil-free
clothing 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.
After completion of work, inspect area to ensure it is free of sparks,
glowing embers, and flames.
Use only correct fuses or circuit breakers. Do not oversize or bypass them.
Follow requirements in OSHA 1910.252 (a) (2) (iv) and NFPA 51B
for hot work and have a fire watcher and extinguisher nearby.
Read and understand the Safety Data Sheets (SDSs) and the
manufacturer’s instructions for adhesives, coatings, cleaners,
consumables, coolants, degreasers, fluxes, and metals.
NOISE can damage hearing.
Noise from some processes or equipment can
damage hearing.
Wear approved ear protection if noise level is
high.
ELECTRIC AND MAGNETIC FIELDS (EMF)
can affect Implanted Medical Devices.
Wearers of Pacemakers and other Implanted
Medical Devices should keep away.
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.
Compressed 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.
Use only correct compressed 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. Do
not stand in front of or behind the regulator when opening the valve.
Keep protective cap in place over valve except when cylinder is in
use or connected for use.
Use the right equipment, correct procedures, and sufficient number of persons to lift and move cylinders.
Read and follow instructions on compressed gas cylinders,
associated equipment, and Compressed Gas Association (CGA)
publication P-1 listed in Safety Standards.

1-8. EMF Information
Electric current flowing through any conductor causes localized electric
and magnetic fields (EMF). The current from arc welding (and allied processes including spot welding, gouging, plasma arc cutting, and
induction heating operations) creates an EMF field around the welding
circuit. EMF fields may interfere with some medical implants, e.g. pacemakers. Protective measures for persons wearing medical implants
have to be taken. For example, restrict access for passers−by or conduct 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.
OM-264 359 Page 6
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.

outils recommandés et porter des gants de soudage et des vêtements épais pour éviter les brûlures.
DES PIECES DE METAL ou DES
SALETES peuvent provoquer
des blessures dans les yeux.
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.
Porter des lunettes de sécurité avec écrans latéraux ou un écran
facial.
LES FUMÉES ET LES GAZ peuvent être dangereux.
Le soudage génère des fumées et des gaz. Leur
inhalation peut être dangereux pour votre santé.
Eloigner votre tête des fumées. Ne pas respirer les fumées.
À l’intérieur, ventiler la zone et/ou utiliser une ventilation forcée au
niveau de l’arc pour l’évacuation des fumées et des gaz de soudage.
Pour déterminer la bonne ventilation, il est recommandé de
procéder à un prélèvement pour la composition et la quantité de
fumées et de gaz auxquels est exposé le personnel.
Si la ventilation est médiocre, porter un respirateur anti-vapeurs
approuvé.
Lire et comprendre les fiches de données de sécurité et les instructions du fabricant concernant les adhésifs, les revêtements, les
nettoyants, les consommables, les produits de refroidissement, les
dégraisseurs, les flux et les métaux.
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 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.

LES ACCUMULATIONS DE GAZ
risquent de provoquer des blessures
ou même la mort.
Fermer l’alimentation du gaz comprimé en cas
de non utilisation.
Veiller toujours à bien aérer les espaces confinés ou se servir
d’un respirateur d’adduction d’air homologué.
LES RAYONS DE L’ARC peuvent
provoquer des brûlures dans les
yeux et sur la peau.
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 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).
Porter des lunettes de sécurité avec écrans latéraux même sous
votre casque.
Avoir recours à des écrans protecteurs ou à des rideaux pour
protéger les autres contre les rayonnements les éblouissements
et les étincelles ; prévenir toute personne sur les lieux de ne pas
regarder l’arc.
Porter un équipement de protection pour le corps fait d’un matériau
résistant et ignifuge (cuir, coton robuste, laine). La protection du
corps comporte des vêtements sans huile comme par ex. des
gants de cuir, une chemise solide, des pantalons sans revers, des
chaussures hautes et une casquette.
LE SOUDAGE peut provoquer un
incendie ou une explosion.
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.
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.
Ne pas souder dans un endroit là où des étincelles peuvent tomber
sur des substances inflammables.
Se protéger et d’autres personnes de la projection d’étincelles et
de métal chaud.
Des étincelles et des matériaux chauds du soudage peuvent
facilement passer dans d’autres zones en traversant de petites
fissures et des ouvertures.
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 et AWS
A6.0 (voir les Normes de Sécurité).
Ne soudez pas si l’air ambiant est chargé de particules, gaz, ou vapeurs inflammables (vapeur d’essence, par exemple).
Brancher le câble de masse 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, d’étincelles 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 porteélectrode ou couper le fil à la pointe de contact.
Porter un équipement de protection pour le corps fait d’un matériau
résistant et ignifuge (cuir, coton robuste, laine). La protection du
corps comporte des vêtements sans huile comme par ex. des
gants de cuir, une chemise solide, des pantalons sans revers, des
chaussures hautes et une casquette.
Avant de souder, retirer toute substance combustible de vos poches telles qu’un allumeur au butane ou des allumettes.
Une fois le travail achevé, assurez−vous qu’il ne reste aucune trace d’étincelles incandescentes ni de flammes.
Utiliser exclusivement des fusibles ou coupe−circuits appropriés.
Ne pas augmenter leur puissance; ne pas les ponter.
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.
LE BRUIT peut affecter l’ouïe.
Le bruit des processus et des équipements peut
affecter l’ouïe.
Porter des protections approuvés pour les
oreilles si le niveau sonore est trop élevé.
Les CHAMPS ÉLECTROMAGNÉTIQUES
(CEM) peuvent affecter les implants médicaux.
Les porteurs de stimulateurs cardiaques et
autres implants médicaux doivent rester à
distance.
Les porteurs d’implants médicaux doivent consulter leur
médecin et le fabricant du dispositif avant de s’approcher de la
zone où se déroule du soudage à l’arc, du soudage par points, du
gougeage, de la découpe plasma ou une opération de chauffage
par induction.
Si des BOUTEILLES sont endommagées, elles pourront exploser.
Des bouteilles de gaz comprimé 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.
Protéger les bouteilles de gaz comprimé d’une chaleur excessive,
des chocs mécaniques, des dommages physiques, du laitier, des
flammes ouvertes, des étincelles et des arcs.
Placer les bouteilles debout en les fixant dans un support stationnaire ou 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 comprimé, régulateurs,
tuyaux et raccords convenables pour cette application spécifique;
les maintenir ainsi que les éléments associés en bon état.

2-8. Informations relatives aux CEM
Le courant électrique qui traverse tout conducteur génère des champs
électromagnétiques (CEM) à certains endroits. Le courant issu d’un
soudage à l’arc (et de procédés connexes, y compris le soudage par
points, le gougeage, le découpage plasma et les opérations de
chauffage par induction) crée un champ électromagnétique (CEM)
autour du circuit de soudage. 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:
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.
4. Maintenir la tête et le torse aussi loin que possible du matériel du
circuit de soudage.
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.
En ce qui concerne les implants médicaux :
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.

8-12. Maintaining Stainless Steel (Models With Optional Package)
Stainless steel is very resistant to rust and corrosion; however, it must be kept clean to ensure rust and corrosion resistance. Units used
in corrosive environments (chlorine or salt water environment for example) should be cleaned with mild soap and water frequently. If dirt
build−up occurs, use a stainless steel cleaner to remove build−up. With proper maintenance, stainless steel maintains its luster and appearance.
8-13. Battery Maintenance
Lead acid batteries discharge when stored in any temperature. Units that are stored should have the battery recharged every three months and before
being put into service. To preserve optimum battery performance and life, recharge battery in storage when the open−circuit voltage drops to 12.4 volts
DC when measured across the battery terminals.

NOTICE − Diesel engines in MILLER equipment are meant to operate optimally at moderate to rated load. Using light or no load for extended periods
of time may cause wetstacking or other engine damage. Do not idle engine longer than necessary.
11-1. Wetstacking
2
NOTICE − Do not perform run-in
procedure at less than 20 volts weld
output and do not exceed duty cycle
or equipment damage may occur.
1
Welding Generator
Run diesel engines near rated voltage and current during run-in period
to properly seat piston rings and
prevent wetstacking. See nameplate, rating label, or specifications
section in this manual to find rated
voltage and current.
1
NOTICE − Do not idle engine longer
than necessary. Piston rings only
seat correctly if engine runs at weld/
power rpm, and the welding generator is kept loaded during run-in.
2
Engine Exhaust Pipe
Wetstacking is unburned fuel and oil
in the exhaust pipe and occurs
during run-in if the engine is run too
long at light load or idle rpm.
If exhaust pipe is coated with a wet,
black, tar-like substance, dry the
engine using one of the following
run-in procedures.
See the engine manual for additional
engine run-in information.

rated voltage and current of generator
(see nameplate, rating label, or the
specifications section in this manual).
For Resistance Grid
Set grid switches and then adjust generator A/V control so load equals rated
voltage and current of the generator
(see nameplate, rating label, or the
specifications section in this manual).
Check generator and meters after first five
minutes then every fifteen minutes to be
sure generator is loaded properly.
NOTICE − Check oil level frequently during
run-in; add oil if needed.
It is recommended to run the welding
generator for two hours minimum and up to
four hours under load. Place A/V control in
minimum position, then shut down load

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.
3
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.

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.

Limit Load To 90% Of
Generator Output
Always start non-resistive (motor)
loads in order from largest to smallest, and add resistive loads last.

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.

Have only qualified persons
perform these connections
according to all applicable
codes and safety practices.

Properly install, ground, and
operate this equipment according to its Owner’s Manual and national, state, and local codes.
Customer-supplied equipment
is required if generator will supply standby power during
emergencies or power outages.

1 Utility Electrical Service
Essential
Loads
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 12-4).
