    Got an email from Radwell International, Inc.(PLC Center) confirming the board can be repaired.

      The boards are on their way back. Should have them Monday. Will update after their installation.

        WooHoo!!! Received my repaired boards from Radwell (PLC Center) today. They sent a laundry list of parts replaced or checked. I carefully installed them. Plugged the welder in....turned on the gas....switched the welder on....and.......................no gas or arc in tig mode. Nothing has changed except the power on light does not come on now😕😕😕 I guess a cheaper place could have done the same thing for less😃😃😃

        Oh well....a used welder is looking very good now.

        Anyone interested in buying a for parts Syncrowave 180SD??

          Really bad news! And now I suppose if you tried to get some help from them, they will say they know the board is good (because they fixed it!) and you have something else wrong. No-win situation.

                Well at least you got a three year warranty. Can you maybe sell that board to someone? Sounds like it has value. Presuming it works.

                    Have you contacted PLC to see if they'd take another look at it - as part of their warranty coverage?

                        Hey....did you get your welder repaired?? I'm out $482 on a board repair. Their repair didn't fix my welder either but I'm sending my repaired boards back under their 3yr warranty. Hopefully they will find something else not working correctly. They did manage to make the power on light not come on now so something did change😄😄😄😄 Let me know if you fixed your welder. Thanks!!!

                        • Well....PLC Center received my boards for warranty repair over a week ago and no word as of yet. When I initially sent them in for repair.....I heard back from them in 2 days. I guess potential warranty work takes longer after they have your money and boards. Nice customer service. Is Cruizer still around??

                              Well if you get the boards back and they still don't work, before ditching the machine I can check with a local guy (former NASA satellite tech) that has repaired "unfixable" boards for me in the past to see if he's willing to take a look at yours.

                                That would be great and much appreciated!!! PLC Center have had the boards for almost 4 weeks and no word yet. I did send an email 2 days ago checking on the status of my repair and no word yet. I hope I get them back so your friend can fix them!! I know PLC Center was highly recommended on this forum but they haven't impressed me at all. A high dollar crap shoot so far.

                                Is there anything else non circuit board related that could be the problem?? The machine seems fine except for no tig HF arc or gas flow. I'm assuming the arc and gas flow is controlled by the boards. Thanks for the continued support!!!!
