Thread: 210 ext and 6011

  1. Default 210 ext and 6011

    Aloha from Maui. I have a 210 ext and think it's great. However I am doing a lot of stick work at my new job. It runs 7018 great but I can't get 6011 to run for crap. On our little miller maxstar I can do perfect welds with 6011. I think I must not have the hotstart and arc force set right so any suggestions would be great.

    The main difference between 7018 & 6011 is the arc length,,,7018 is a drag type rod,,short arc distance 1/8 or less,,6011 is a long arc length rod 1/8 to 1/4 inch,,,using arc force on a 6011 rod will possibly have more varied results because of the arc length range and maybe harder to dial in as a result,,,I think you have answered your own question and I would try zeroing out the arc force when using that rod,,see if that improves your result and let us know...I have never used that machine so I'm only guessing...
    Some of those lies people tell about me, are true

    I will try this today it was weird it was pretty much surging maybe because of arc length and dig. Even my boss couldn't get it I will try again today after work and report back.

    well I got 6011 going for a second then no real amps. Just a little spark tried different rods and the tig. I get juice but no real power I guess I blew the board? Custer service wanted me to mail the whole welder in. I live in Hawaii so thats 200$ pretty bummed since I have three big jobs going and need this unit. I was told I could send in the board weired there are no error codes or anything. Anybody have advice on taking out the board or what to do?
