It may be an air pressure problem. Plasma cutters require a constant flow of air at a certain pressure to work properly. If the compressor can't keep up and the pressure drops it can create problems. Have someone watch the pressure gauge while you're cutting to see if the pressure remains steady. You may need to adjust the compressor pressure switch or you may need a larger compressor.
Hope this helps.

I have a Miller Spectrum 625. The problem I am having is that after cutting for three seconds the torch quits cutting. Have had it looked at a Miller repair center. They said they cut with it for over...

I found similar problem with few customers and one issue (should I said the standard issue) is the source of air. You need a steady pressure and flow of air into the machine. Check your air compressor you will need at least 6 cubic feet per minute (360 cubic feet per hour) and a 90 psi of pressure. Since there is no way to check the flow (unless you have an online flow meter at you air pipe) check the pressure at your air tank (reservoir), if the pressure drops below the 70 PSI then that's the problem; your compressor can't stand the flow. Other than that check your ground clamp and make sure it's making a good contact.
Good Luck.

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.

Miller plasma cutter not cutting


Miller plasma are pretty realiable. Without more details; what you need to do is check the contact tip and the electrode if these ones are won, replace them. If still doesn't work; check your air pressure; main source must give you at leats 90 psi and 9 SCFM of flow,

Good 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
