  • New Miller Digital Elite Question

    hello i just bought a new miller digital elite welding helmet about 2 weeks ago. yesterday i brought it home from work and needed to change the front lense and proceeded to do so but it doesnt look like the front lense seals very well because the hood has a curve to it but the lense doesnt and i can see a little gap looking at the hood from the outside top and bottom. anybody have any tricks to make it seal better? i took the replacment lense back out and tried bending it a little to give it a curve but didnt seem to help any. I just think it should seal better for the money paid. I dont want any slag ect getting to the electronic lense behind the clear lense or i will be giving miller a call Thanks

    Digital Elite Lens

    Hey Joe: Did you put the rubber seal back in right? It seals the opening, then the cover lens, then the very expensive digital assemply, and the inner cover fits into that. I put new lens covers in mine a few weeks ago, and just went out and looked at it, and it's okay.

    Hope this helps

      digital elite lenses

      yeah its all put together right. The replacment lenses have no curve to them but the helmet does and i can see the rubber gasket that fits around the replacment lense when looking at the face of the helmet at the top and bottom. hopefully it will be alright im just **** about this kind of stuff when paying 300 dollars for a hood Thanks for your reply

        If the replacement lens does not have a curve, then you have the wrong lens.

          The replacement lenses aren't curved. The rubber has a front and a back.(back is wider) Make sure that you have it in the right way. Once you have the lens in the rubber you'll push the rubber gasket all the way in as far as it goes and it should stay all the way forward. Then you can put the electronics back in.

            The CORRECT replacement lenses ARE CURVED. Purchase the correct ones and be done with the problem.

                Part # 216 326

                Griff01: I'm holding in my hand, this very lens. The cover lens is FLAT. The top and bottom of the cover lens have a RADIUS to fit into the rubber seal. The lens itself, IS NOT CURVED or BOWED. It is FLAT.

                Thank you

                  Gotcha. My bad. I thought you were talking about the curve (radius) at the top.

                    No Big Deal

                    Griff: I thought about that, after I posted it. I think if you look at his first post, he was trying to bend the lens cover. No biggie, I just had to double check myslef, as I have post erroneous replies, try my best not to steer anyone in the wrong direction. I enjoy this forum, gives all of us a chance to bounce things around, if you know what I mean. Happy welding!
