  • Blinking over temp then weak arc on Miller 212. Bad board?

    Hey all,
    I have an older (non autoset) Miller 212 and was getting a blinking over temp welding while some 1/4 inch plate. As I understand it, a *blinking* overtemp light actually means overcurrent in the drive motor. I may have been getting this a few times before I noticed what was going on. I adjusted the roller pressure and spool tension and now I'm not getting an overtemp light, but I'm getting an extremely weak arc at any voltage setting. Did this sound like I burned the board out or something else? Any ideas what might be going on here and the fix? Thanks!

    Well since amperage has to do with wirespeed feed, and you had several motor over heats, going to suggest that your drive motor is trashed.
