Help with Thermal Dynamics Cutmaster needed

Postby charlie chop » Sun Nov 17, 2013 3:22 am

Hi all.
Wondering if anybody could give some insight on my problem. I bought the machine Cutmaster 12mm w/ sl60 torch second hand with the thought of using it to make the money needed to get a hypertherm 65, (hindsight I should of just kept saving)
machine worked good and was just starting to dial it in and getting good results, then it started not firing intermittently and coming up with error light flashes( these would go away when you wiggle the consumables).
Then I didn't do the cup up tight enough and it arced sideways blowing out the nozzle, tip and start cartridge. I ordered all new consumables and now it wont arc, it has arced a few times but very randomly, ive checked, replaced and cleaned them all and maybe 1 in 100 times its fired when testing.
So Far ive checked all wiring connections, air, consumables and still not getting anything, put a testlight on back of torch wires and there is no power there when torch fired.
I don't really want to send it away to be fixed cause it will eat into my hypertherm fund,

Any ideas on things to check for would be greatly appreciated.

You should post this in the TD section. You would probably get much faster results.
