  • No more Miller dual voltage machines

    I have a Passport Plus that has seen little use and certainly no abuse. Recently, and of course after the warranty had expired, the machine stopped working on the 110 volt side. The board that tells the machine which voltage to use, according to my lws repair tech, has to be replaced. Replacement cost $750!!! Never again.

          Mike,

          If you can get me your serial number I'll see if there is anything I can do.

            The reason why I ask, is that often and Miller Kevin can attest to this is that they (Miller) often will supply the board for free and all you pay is the labour
            Sometimes they have test boards. Something major like this, your tech always has the option to call Miller

              Very good to know. I will get that as soon as I get the machine back from the shop.
