hypertherm powermax 45 HELP!!!!

Postby Amyfreestone » Fri Dec 16, 2016 3:21 am

my powermax 45 will not arc at all. This morning it did the pssst sound and the tip light came on. I changed the components and cleaned everything. I switched from 45 to 30 amp components and adjusted the cut speed and height. It continues to make that psst noise and then the tip light comes on. I have been fighting it all day. cant think of what could have happened. Anyone experienced this before? Any help would be sooo appreciated.

I think this should get moved to the Plasma Cutter forum/ Hypertherm.
Platform CNC Plasma table
CandCNC Ethercut IV DTHC
Hypertherm 85/CPC/RS485
