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..

Spectrum thunder plasma cutter will not cut steady, keeps stopping and have to pull trigger to cut


Check the contactor contacts for pitting. if severly pitted, replace contactor. If a death grip on the switch makes it work better then a light touch- replace the trigger switch.

When you start cutting it will cut about 2 inches and kick out you let off the trigger and pull it back on it will do the same as long as you do that it will not cut continusle please advise does not...


You may need a better air supply. Also check the tip. This sometimes happens with mine when the tip gets pitted, not sure why but changing the tip sorts it out. They are fussy machines in some ways. Dont like dirty material, need a good earth.

Hi:

Your plasma has a start arc pilot inside the machine, this one must be faulty, check your owner's manual and request the part to your nearest welding store. It is easy to replace.

Check compressed air pressure is in limits otherwise unit will cut out. Try adjusting the pressure up. also make sure the supply pressure is correct as it may not be your plasma cutter at fault.

Internal componet failure, return the machine for repair. Who did you purchase it from?

Only cuts for 3 seconds, device still on


Possibly an internal short in the torch tip... the expendable components failing in the tip will cause the sensors in the machine to register a "no cut" or "free air arc" state and kill the power to the tip to prevent damage to the unit. Replace the tip components and double check the grounds connections.
