  • XMT 304 is Dead

    Unfortunately we were air arcing today running about 325 amps, we finished, came back to turn it on after lunch and it was dead, no code no nothing.

    Stock # 903471
    Serial # LA195408

    What might be the problem and how much money might we be talking.

    If there is no display then likely a wall breaker issue, did you check them?

      Yes, I checked the breaker in the panel which was fine and then I tried a different plug.

        I just went and plugged it into a third plug and made sure the 2 circuit breakers on the back arent popped and they were not, Im going to take the cover off and verify power in and out of the switch.

          Okay, I'm pretty sure I found the problem, I have power going into the switch, when I was fumbling with the tester on the output side of the switch the machine popped on and as long as I kept side pressure on the wire the machine powered up and allowed me to change settings, it does not feel like a loose wire but more like a bad connection inside the switch.

            Is this switch something I might find from McMaster Carr, Grainger, electrical supply house or will I be forced to order it from Miller.
