          hey gentlemen found it . it is the switch that changes the voltage on the front my nephew came down and after a lot checking and tightening we got to fooling with the voltage switch and got it arc so I figured I would replace and that will cure my problem I wish to thank everyone for their response the advice was a great help

            Outstanding! If you need to buy a new switch look at Miller4less.com

            just enter the part number from your parts list.

              So no flux capacitor or electrical skookum drives? That's good. Glad you got it figured out. I had a switch break on a run of the mill lincoln stick machine break years back. It was obvious what it was, so I just had the LWS order it. Dadgum thing was $35 and when it came in, it was nothing more than the same dern thing I could've picked up at a hardware store for $5. If that much! Dang vultures.

                  hey again I want to thank everyone for their input I found the switch and going to order it next week its 102.00 plus shipping but that's a heck of a lot cheaper than a new welder

                    Before you buy a new one, is it possible to clean up the contacts in the old one & maybe bend them for a little more tension?---Meltedmetal
