          Hey b-footn, I read somewhere else that the subject was brought up about these machines left out in the weather would cause your problem! I never used one of these Pipepro 304 or even seen one, but I call BS. About a hundred years ago I owned a Miller Trailblazer 55 D. I live outside of Seattle, my machine spent 90 % of it’s life on a barge or on a dock in Puget Sound, (salt water / air) I had this machine 15-years, only thing that ever went wrong with it was, I had the auxiliary fuel pump go out, something like $47.00. I agree with your comment “Their an industrial machine”. Good luck, and I hope you find some answers, I know what it’s like to depend on a piece of machinery!

                    I'm getting excellent service. I stay busy, and haven't had time to call the service rep, and I was rained out yesterday, so I came to the welding forums to seek others with the similar problem. I was getting excellent service before I came here.

                      Why are the circuit boards suseptible to moisture and needs a plastic bag to cover them? I read in Millers literature that their boards are ( VAULTED ) and can withstand a nuculear explosion :-) I wouldnt think that Miller would make a pipeline welder that couldnt operate in the rain........

                          Over the years we get more and more electronics. We're told that they are good and will make everything better for us. But the more electronics we get the more failures we see. And often the repair people who we used to know as good shrug their shoulders and say that we must be doing something wrong to cause our failures - and often they don't look us in the eye when they say that.

                            Hey b-footn, I was reading some comments on another board, and I got to thinking, now I’m thinking out loud, LOL. Here in the Seattle area we fight moisture all the time. When I read DDA52’s comment about moisture and electronics don’t mix. WOW, how true that is! What do you think about buying one of these and seeing if you can install it up under the hood somewhere. You could just look at it as a full time glow plug! Like I said just thinking out loud.

                              Glad this is over... I almost started to doubt our service.

                                Here is a tidbit of information that was posted on another forum Andy. I don't know if this is correct or not, but posting it here for information purposes.
                                __________________________________________________ _______________

                                There was a change up, and the "tank capacitors were replaced for the reasons you mentioned, They also replaced the board as well. now if you just replaced the board and not the "Tank Caps", the new board won't read the old caps, and won't charge them to the correct setting, thus Hel-1 comes on. Most of this **** is covered for not 3, but 5-7 years. Miller doesn't like to tell you that though....
