Wiring in new Miller 250DX welding machine
I just bought a new "Miller 250DX Welding Machine" and was wondering if anybody out there could help with the wiring. I have a 220v, 100A service to the Garage. On the back of the machine it has a label with 3 different type's of electrical hookups for this machine (U=200v-1=110A),(U=230v-1=96A), (U=460V-1=48A). I'm thinking that since I only have 220v and a 100A service that I might not have enough power to run lights and outlets. If I do have enough power what size breaker should be used. any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

The way I read that is using 220 v, single ohase it requires 96 amps. Must be some welder!!! What kind of plug and/or wire comes out of the back, does anything come out of it? After looking at the miller web site, it ranges fromm 77 amps to 96 amps. Your subpanel breaker may not hold . I don't have time to look through the code book right now, but will follow up later.

Hey jbfan:
Thank's for the quick reply. As to your question of a plug or wires coming out of the back of the machine, there isn't any, you have to supply your own.
