    I would like to convert my Cricket to Argon shield gas. Anyone got any idea where I could get the kit. Miller local office is of no help,

    Hi, I have an older Cricket(my first machine) and tried to convert it years ago. A few of the cricket models were able to be done but most would not support a gas solenoid or switching for it. I'm going back a ways but I'm sure that this info came from my local dealer at the time. Good Luck, JEFF

      There was a "Hard Wire" kit available. It was a part # 042214, no longer available. But that tells me that the circuitry is in the machine to support a gas solenoid.

      Now, I am not a welder technician, as a matter of fact I'm pretty clueless when it comes to reading a schematic, but someone with a little savvy could surely figure out the voltage that is available to run this solenoid, and cross reference one from todays stock that could be made to work.

        Yes, I've found the owners manual on the Miller web site and now I know the voltage, size and orifice size so I have all the info. Now it's really a simple matter to get a Buna N seated solenoid with these parameters. Miller web site is really good for the manuals.
