    I'll get the serial # when I get back to the shop but anyways I think I got a unit about to fail. I used this thing a bunch since I got it on a wire feeder. I've taken it to other locations where their welding equipment is sub par for what we were doin, usually stick welding process and I've never had a problem until last night. I got the dreaded Help 8 with no output. I powered it down and restarted it. All was good the rest of the evening. Is this a sign of eventual failure or is it nature of the beast? If its on its way out then I guess I should get it somewhere before it blows completely.

    Hep 8 is no biggy, just means its likely time to change out your boost relay. Under the top board. Its an actual relay....

        Help 8 just means that the relay (pictured) got stuck. So replace it. And while your inside the unit tighten averything up.
