Hi, I have a millermatic 185 welder and it did not come with a spoolgun switch, I installed a 207642 spoolmate switch kit, but the wire feed runs backwards, would you know what the problem might be? Would appreciate any help ! thanks fred

Hey Fred, It sounds like a wiring issue. When you installed the switch, did you run the wires correctly? I would either refer to the manual you received or give Miller a call directly to make sure the switch was installed correctly. I hope this helps!

Hi Ben, I have a Millermatic 135 and the wire speed is un-controllable. It is wide open, i couldn't slow it down by turning the switch from 4 to 1. Please advise! Thanks!

I have a Millermatic 180. Bought it used from a friend who used it with a spoolgun only, never used the mig. It works fine with a faster wirefeed (60 or 0ver), but if you are welding thicker steel like 1/4", it's putting out too much wire and not enough heat to penetrate. If I slow the speed, it pops and stops feeding wire, and the machine sounds like it's still feeding wire, and none is coming out, and it's not birdnesting.

Hi:
I have a millermatic 180 mig that suddenly fails to arc. The wire feeds and the power into the machine will run a miller stick welder. My local repair shop is a month out for looking at the machine. Are there some tests i can conduct to determine the problem?
