  • Brand New Dynasty 280DX, weak/bad argon solenoid?


    Name is Dave. Picked up a new Dynasty 280DX about a month ago, and after some use, I have noticed issues with the argon still flowing after post flow has timed out.

    Setup is 330CF bottle, single flowmeter, standard green argon hose (12 ft) to the rear of the machine. Running a 17FV torch currently, and noticed my float ball was still moving after the post flow was done, albeit less flow. I could hear it at the gas lens as well.

    Probably more of a question to moderators/admins here at Miller - is this a known issue or an identified problem? Not the kind of thing one likes to see on ~$5k machine.

    If you need more details, please ask. Or if there is a better place to ask this please direct me appropriately.
