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.

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.

SOURCE: 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.

Green yellow would be earth ground. Confirm it with a test meter.

Solid green and solid brown would attach to the 240 hots- no return white.

I have a simadre cut50D an I don't have the ground cable can I still use it?


No. Check here for the specifics of how plasma cutters work: http://home.howstuffworks.com/plasma-cutter4.htm Without a ground cable, you cannot complete a circuit, and the physical basis of how a plasma cutter works doesn't function.

Not getting a spark when I pull the trigger


Try checking the front Panel and Internal fuses, as well as the thermal overload.

This could happen when you exceed the duty cycle.

eg: 20% Duty Cycle In a period of 10 Minutes, 2 minutes cutting, 8 minutes not.


Best of luck

Plasma Cutters support


In this process, an inert gas (in some units, compressed air) is blown at high speed out of a nozzle; at the same time an electrical arc is formed through that gas from the nozzle to the surface being cut, turning some of that gas to plasma. The plasma is sufficiently hot to melt the metal being cut and moves sufficiently fast to blow molten metal away from the
