SOURCE: ESAB 550 plasma cutter will not shut off, I suspect a bad switch

unlikely, the switch poles are not making contact or a wire has come adrift from one of the swiutch poles.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

Esab plasma cutter fault light comes on as soon as it is turned on


The cable or cutting head may be damaged. The power connections may be loose, an internal circuit breaker may have failed. If the cooling fan does not come on, check the wiring in the cabinet for damaged wires. Disconnect fan wires- noting where each connected and check to see if the fan burned out- if it did, replace the fan and it chould begin to work correctly. If the fan checks out okay- it will have 2 discrete sets of windings-one for the fan, the other to provide control voltage.Check that board with the rectifiers as a rectifier may have failed or there may be a fuse on the board.

If it were mine, I would check everything under the cabinet after it has been thoroughly blown clean.

Fault light is on all the time. Is there a fuse ?


Hi:
No there is no fuse for the fault light. Fault light it's on only when:
1) Voltage is wrong or not enough.
2) Overheated machine and needs to cool down.
3) Your airflow is too weak.
Check your owners manual section 5 for more info.

The gas light come on and flashes and wont cut. I have changed all the nozzels on the torch and still nothing?


Hi:

Gas light goes on when you have an air flow or pressure problem. Do you have enough pressure? you will need at least 120 psi at the compressor and 75psi at the plasma machine. Do you have enough flow? You will need 20 SCFH and a 30 gallon compressor reserve tank.

Let me know if this help. Please vote.

Powers on airs on air starts wen triggers pressed no arc.


inside the unit their is a part witch looks like a spark gap and that is what it is if this part gets dirty of has like a magnetic fuzz in it it will need to be cleaned as well the gap should be reset you will need to contact the manufacture for the specks do to different units have different settings wile you have the side off look for lose connections as well as arking marks for passable shorts their is a variety of things that can go wrong with thease units but what i said is most common do not use high pressure ari to blow clean a metal chip can damage transformer windings and then short out be careful of capacitors they can hold a nasty charge and aslo can be lethal if your not sure i highly suggest you take to a service center for the unit you have hope this helps.

My plasma cutter just flashes fault everytime you try and use it. could it be the ground or would it be the electrod


check the main lead to the torch,if there is a cut or any hole in the rubber coating it will show fault,the unit uses high frequencey so if the lead has a cut it wont fire up.
