Perhaps you have a poor connection between your material and work lead ("ground") clamp.

Cllean the beveled edge on the start cartridge plunger with a scotchbrite pad and that may fix it.

Do you see any error codes on the plasma cutter?

Are you sure you have the correct consumables and have installed them correctly? Does it have the same problem when you attempt to cut by hand - assuming you are using a hand torch?
