    Go into your menu and turn up your start-amps and increase your start-time as well. That is if your machine is pre- Blue Lightning.

    If by "Misfires" you mean hard arc starts.... it is possible that you have Dynastys that are pre "BLUE LIGHTNING".... that is an enhancement that allows easier ac starts

    Check your serial number
