  • Maxstar 140

    Help, I have a Maxstar 140, the one made in Austria I believe, I probably only have 30 or so hours on it when it fried, a resistor on the board.....I was told that it would be over $600 to repair, for the parts alone, it sure seems that these machines were destined to fail....is there any help from Miller, I am now worrying about the Dynasty 200 DX I have, Thanks, Paul

      Considering it's likely 7 or 8 years old and its basicaly one big circuit board. $600 isn't all that bad to fix it hmmm, 30 hours on that old of a machine is a little odd as well.

      The 200DX is totally different, somewhat like comparing apples to mud.

        How old is the machine? Miller has 3-year warranty on most of their machines.
