HF spark gap adjustment needs to be done, it's inside the machine, front of bottom circuit board.

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.

Start cutting and the safety light comes on


Usually it could be one of two things. The first thing to check for is to look at the contact and make sure it is not melted down and ensure its in good shape. The second thing that could do this, would be not enough air pressure. This air pressure is used to blow away the molten metal you are cutting.

the spark that you see when you touch work peice is high frequency,recheck connections like good ground (tight and clean)on the unit and work peice.no ground no fire.

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

Hobart 250 a keeps cutting off the flame


If you have a bad air supply then the moisture in the air will cause the torch to cut off and the cut quality depends also on air supply,speed,metal thickness and condition of your consumables,meaning your electrode and other related parts in the torch tip.Hope this helps

in order to cut the thicker steel just boost the air pressure this will allow you to thourghly blow through the steel. just remember not to turn it up too much. this should do the trick. please rate

Plasma cutters Question


There are a few things about plasma cutting safety that are different from general welding safety tips This short list of plasma cutter safety tips is geared toward light duty plasma cutting using compressed air not large industrial units that use gas mixtures and water cutting tables. Electric Shock Can Kill - Operating a plasma cutter completes an electric circuit between the torch and the workpiece. The workpiece and anything touching the workpiece are part of the electrical circuit. - Never touch the torch body, workpiece or the water in a water table when the plasma system is operating. Voltages & Currents - Plasma cutter output voltages are much greater than welding voltages, usually 100-200 volts. Precautionary Measures - Do not pick up the workpiece, including the waste cutoff, while you cut. Leave the workpiece in place on the workbench with the work cable attached during the cutting process. - During plasma cutting operations do not move the work clamp. Wear insulated gloves and boots, and keep your body and clothing dry. - Do not stand, sit or lie on or otherwise touch any wet surface when using the plasma cutter system. - Insulate yourself from work and ground using dry insulating mats or covers big enough to prevent any physical contact with the work or ground. If you must work in or near a damp area, use extreme caution. Work Cable - Ensure metal-to-metal contact between work cable and workpiece or work table. - Work cable clamp should make contact with clean metal free of rust, dirt, painted surfaces, etc. - Do not attach work cable to the piece that will fall away when the cut is complete Plasma cutter Arc Rays Plasma cutter arc rays produce intense visible and invisible (ultraviolet and infrared) rays that can burn eyes and skin. Protective Clothing - Guantlet gloves, safety shoes and hat. - Flame-retardant clothing to cover all exposed areas. - Cuffless trousers to prevent entry of sparks and slag. - Remove combustibles, such as a butane lighter or matches, from your pockets before cutting. Noise Levels of Plasma Arc Cutting - Plasma arc cutting systems can generate noise levels in excess of 120 dB during high-amperage cutting operations. - Ear protection should be used when operating or working near plasma arc cutting operations. Toxic Fumes & Gases Plasma arc cutting can produce toxic fumes and gases that deplete oxygen and cause serious injury. - Keep the cutting area well ventilated or use an approved air-supplied respirator. - Do not cut in locations near degreasing, cleaning or spraying operations. The vapors from certain chlorinated solvents decompose to form phosgene gas when exposed to ultraviolet radiation. Pacemakers & Hearing Aids - Pacemaker and hearing aid operation can be affected by magnetic fields from high currents. Pacemaker and hearing aid wearers should consult a doctor before going near any plasma arc cutting and gouging operations Overall Plasma Safety - The plasma arc cutting process can be very safe. - By paying attention to safety standards and correctly setting up and operating the system, plasma arc cutting poses no more a threat than most welding processes.
