Is it 220 vts ? If so, Check the outlet with a voltmeter to see if you have 110 vts. On both of the top terminals .

It sounds like a relay is stuck closed. It could be on the control board. Call Miller welding and give them the model number and they will be able to help . Good luck

It’s close enough not to be able to answer that. The inrush current of a welder is huge anyway, so it could exceed the instantaneous capacity of the generator. However, it’s also possible with capacitance in the welder to smooth that out, that it will work fine. The only way to be sure is to test it. If you can’t do that before purchasing, it’s a risk you take. On balance it should work, but may not.

Lots of torches are fairly universal and you are likely to find it cheaper to replace only the parts needed if you can find them - manufacturers tend to prefer to sell the torch (or gun) complete with the hose, cables and sheath and they are expensive though considerable savings can be made dealing with factors or independent supplier/repairers.

Most professional mig welders over here use the euro torch and when a welder doesn't have one and the torch is ready for replacing it is a worthwhile modification, especially if the necessary parts can be sourced secondhand or salvaged.
The euro torch just plugs into the machine and once the machine has been modified there are plenty of usable secondhand ones about that can be had for a song.

If you aren't conversant with the euro torch, try a search...

Hey Joe, Sounds like a fuel starvation issue... the needle/seat/float that controls the flow of gas into the carburetor is probably sticking and letting a TINY amount of fuel in the carb,, running the engine burns it dry too quick and quits... takes a few minutes for it to refill, then you start it, and run it dry again,, (repeat-repeat-repeat).. sound about right?? Take it to any GOOD small engine mechanic... they can clean and set the carburetor...
this is no biggie.. just very aggravating..
Good luck! .please mark as helpful...

You are probably going to have to replace the complete assembly, and it is probably going to cost about $150. I would contact Hobart by phone with your serial #, and they should have the correct part# , since there is no parts list in your manual, and none seem to be available on line. BRwelders has part# 210010 listed but may not be correct, since it is for the 120.

Not really.
You can purchase aluminum stick electrodes, but they generally don't work that well.
You will find it best just for steel.

Any welding supply store should be able to get you one. It comes from Miller.
