I just bought a Miller DialArc 250 AC/DC.
It's a pretty sweet machine, but I'm troubled by something and want to fix it if possible.
If I turn the machine on with the amperage set to wherever I left off welding, it trips a 50 amp breaker on start up. If I turn the dial down to zero, it will start up fine.
The guy I bought it from said he was having this problem. He also said he installed a toggle switch to turn the fan on and off and he replaced the on/off switch with a 200 amp breaker.
Here is a link to the Owner's Manual:
My questions are:1.) Is this a reasonable thing to happen? It doesn't happen with the big beast of a Lincoln I have, nor with my Millermatic 252.
2.) Has anyone had a similar problem and the correct solution to it?
Thanks for any help,
