  • Sticky gas valve

    Started using my new 210 a little, and I find it has a sticky gas valve that wont close completely all the time. Any reccomendations?

    I think I would look for something like this or dirt in the solonoid. If help is available take it to the service shop{ if it is in warranty still- 3 years}.
    Peace,

      That link didn't seem to have any relevance. You sure that's the right one?

      I plan to call the dealer tommorow, just wondering if it just needs to be worked in or something.

          It turns out that some units got defective outsourced valves. Call Miller or get your dealer/warranty shop to phone Miller with your serial #. They will send new ones to you in 2 days like they did me (and I live in Canada). Make sure you get both replaced. Good luck.

            PJ and cunning are both on the ball. I had a similar problem and miller fixed me up in two days aswell. If you feel up to it I would replace it myself. It takes ten minutes and saves a whole lotta down time and gasoline!
            Hope this helps.

              Cool! Thanks for the help people! I found the numbers on the machine, now where do I find a phone number to call?

              I'm sure I can handle the installation.

                I tried the 18004miller line and didn't get through. My warrant shop phoned them and took care of it for me.

                You can phone them directly. Here are some numbers from the Hobart forum :

                920-831-4898
                920-954-3610

                This is to their tech line and seems they know about the problem.

                Hope this helps.

                  Thanks all for the tips! I made the call, got the parts and all is well now. Hats off to Miller for outstanding customer service. I wish more companies would stand behind their products like that.
