  • Wont work help

    Hello I am new to the forum but hoping someone can help. I have a miller 130 xp that has stopped working when i turn on the welder and hit the button for it to feed wire on the wand it dims lights in my garage and if held to long will trip the breaker and it is on its own circuit so know it isnt over loading circuit plus worked fine up to this point.I noticed the wire feeder is barely moving when button is pressed no matter where the wire feed speed is set. I have replaced the blue capacitor and large diode that was bolted to capacitor as the positive side was melted out of capacitor but this did not fix it can someone please help i really need to get this back going to finisha project i have and cant find a welding repair shop in my area

      Have to remember that most of us techs DON'T work on the weekends, so not going to post.......

      You should have realized that, the large blue cap/ drain resistor isn't going to up and blow for no reason. Your rectifier has blown as well.

        What cruizer said and don't just replace the failed unit. Replace all the output rectifier diodes.

          Rectifier in this case appears to be button diodes in an assembly so one part #
