    Good deal man, glad you're on the way to mending your machine.

    I've been on the phone with miller for old machine parts in the past and discovered they have an updated part number for something. So maybe that's why you had trouble finding what you needed. The miller folks have generally been very helpful to me.

    Tested it and it was shorted called Miller got the part and got it ordered at the the local sho . Once Miller gave me the part number I could find it online, what's with them not listing searchable part numbers

    Well pulled it out tonight. Forgot my volt meter when I was at the garage so I didnt check the transformer but last i tried it it only welded on the high AC setting so from all the reading should be this rectifier setup... I'll test it tomorrow at work

I'm of the understanding it needs removal to be tested just the same to see if it's functioning? That said, it's what I've read and comes with no experience of truth or fact to be sure.
    Yea hoping to remove and test tonoght hopefully.... like I said need more hours in the day lol

    Hopefully you will find it to be the seemingly easy fix of replacing diodes?

    I havent has time to test diodes yet. I'm also a beekeeper and it's a tad busy this time of the year. I need more hours in a day or just learn to live on way less sleep

    If it is indeed burned diodes, they usually just need replacing and it should work fine again.
