96 Jeep-wont start when wet out

Have a 96 Grand Cherokee LTD 8 cyl, 170,000 mi., Until recently it had stalled on occaision but always restarted. Last week it began not idling. It would idle at 800-1000 then begin to lope dropping to 600, then 400 then200 and a stall. Turning the key I can hear the fuel pump pressurize. Replaced filter but it is original pump though I dont feel thats the problem. Today it was rainy and it wouldn't start. Seem as though it is flooded. Is there an external temp sensor ti control fuel mix at ignition or could a bad o2 sensor cause this? Any suggestions

Which way do you face a dehumidifier

Normally that will not matter too much unless you want to reduce the heat you accumulate in the work space with those. They do produce a lot of heat in the process of drying the air going into the compressor..

Spectrum 2050 plasma cutter will not arc

Possible failure of the trigger switch and or the cable back to the unit. Use an ophmmeter to check that the trigger and cable are good,

Then with the ohmmeter check the continuityu of the cable to the electrodes,

Connectors are always suspect.

These are starting ponts to check.

A red fault light is illuminated all the time it wont work

The 3 reasons which will cause the infamous red light of death to come on and the machine not function, is because of over/under voltage protection,( make sure you have adequate voltage to the machine) thermal protection (because the duty cycle was exceeded), or mosfet failure. Assuming you have the correct voltage, and the machine is cold, try opening the case. Attached to the aluminum heat sink housing the mosfet transistors is a small button sized metal pill with 2 wired attached to it. This is a bi-metallic thermal fuse, when it gets hot, the contact points inside will open up, and cause the machine to shut down. Check for continuity, because sometimes these contact points inside dont re-align correctly, and your machine thinks its always too hot. If you plug in the machine, and it seems to work, but when you key your plasma torch, everything shuts down and the red light comes on......then theres a good chance the mosfets are gone. When they go, there paired off in series of 3, Chances are youll need to change all 3. Hope this helps........

Plasma cutter started cutting at an angle even when held perfectly perpendicular. New consumables were put on, same amperage, same air pressure. I'm stumped!

did you put all new consumables in ,sounds like there is still old one there.make sure nozzel is put back together right.I have worked on welders and plasmas for years,the torch head is very tempermental.

Plasma cutter wont cut steady

Is your air compressor able to keep up with the continuous regulated air flow?
If positive air flow is not constant same pressure all the time
cutting will stop..>>

Also if your movements are to fast and or material to thick machine will behave that way..
