I've got a new Miller Econotig, and I'm sort of confused about how its
duty-cycle works. Everything I've read about duty-cycle on the
internet says something to the extent of respecting the rating or
damaging the componentry, but what I'm not sure of is whether or not
to let the "High-Temp Shutdown" light come on. I guess the welder has
a built-in feature to shut itself off when it gets too hot, but I
don't know if it's ok to let that light come on all the time. I've
been playing it safe and letting the machine rest before it decides to
do it itself, out of fear that the "High-Temp Shutdown" light
indicates an overheat, which done repeatedly would damage its guts.
However, if it's just a built-in monitor for the duty-cycle, I'd love
to not have to pay so much attention to the amount of time I use it
before it's got to rest. Thanks!
