    millermatic 210.....please help

    I have a millermatic 210 and I have a spool gun for it. The drive rolls on both the spool gun and the regular mig gun have stopped and do not feed the wire on either gun. I have checked the CB1 circuit breaker (drive roll breaker according to the manual)and it is fine. I still have power to the wire because it arcs when I touch the work peice and the gas solinoid still opens and sends gas to the guns. Any ideas of the next place I should start checking. Thanks. I have never been without a welder before, I feel kind of naked and lost.LOL

    HTP has a spoolgun they recommend for the MM210.

    I have no experience with that product but HTP (usaweld.com) is a top-notch company with an excellent reputation and superb customer service. Give them a call and you will be impressed. I've bought several things from them.

    hello,
    I have a Millermatic 210 and I'm looking for a spoolgun for aluminium welding.. Is the spoolmate 3035 gun the only spoolgun that can work with the 210? Is there any substitute gun that is compatible with the Millermatic 210?

    i have same problem Cruizer! No $$$ for new board, can however have my electronics brother replace anything you advise. He can take board to work and repair every single resister you say.

    MODS/ADMIN******* Sorry for bumping old old thread but this is the best thread the entire interweb has to offer on the Millermatic 210 main board problem! All thanks to Cruizer! This thread is life saving

    That would have been way cheaper than a board. I will source out the Q11 part and have the electronics guy at work change it and at least I will have a spare board. How do I find Q11 on the board, will it be labeled.

    Yes, we/I knew it was the control board, that was obvuious, However if you happened to know someone like an electronics guy, that Q11 is about $1.50

    Well I talked to a miller tech today in Appleton WI and he give me a simple test to try which pointed straight to the control board as the problem. He confirmed the miller part #204807. It is ordered and I should be back in business soon. It was that easy.

    You have to look at the physical part Q11, get the number off it, then venture over to NTE.com and get a cross reference for it. Because your not into electronics, I didn't suggest it. Of course your NOT going to find that part listed ANYWHERE on the Miller site.

    Anywhoooo, merely order the board from:www.miller4less.com

    I have a buddy at work that works in the radio shop and works on and fixes motorola radios. I couldn't find the part # for the Q11 but through several hours of searching on the net I believe I found the part # for the PC1 control board. Is miller part # 204807, the PC1 board for the millermatic 210 and is it a plug and play item.

    Electricians generally don't solder. nor do they know circuit board components. Need an Electronics guy.

    Thanks. Is there a miller part # for these items or would a miller parts guy know what Q11 and PC1 is. How hard is it to change these items. Is it something that a technician needs to do with special tools. I have a buddy that is an electrician that works on all kinds of computerized mining equipment that could do it.

    Well PC1 is the circuit board, and Q11 is the power mosfet that runs those drive circuits,

    I have looked in the manual at the wiring diagram and machine schematiics and parts list but can't find anything labeled Q11 or PC1.

    Have you tried a different amp setting? Edit- never mind. I see its a drive roll problem.
