Check the switch. It sounds like it has seen better days. Also check the wires on the back of the switch to see if they are shorting out. The problem is at the switch area. Good luck.

SOURCE: plazma cutter/no arc

The Cutmaster 50 used two different CD "Capacitor Discharge" Boards. The only ones I have seen a lot of issues with were the smaller ones that are 3.5" X 4"

I have worked on several of the them over the last few months. Even though you might see a spark at the spark gap on the board it might not be sufficient to create a pilot arc.

If your air pressure and so forth are correct your issue is most likely the two white capacitors on the CD board.

SOURCE: problem with battery connection

look inside where the battery and you should see two terminals under them you should see two battery pads, if there worn or damaged they may cause the problem you are having. They may need to be replaced. Good luck!

Try cleaning the contacts on the battery and on the gun where the battery rests. Use a pencil eraser to clean the contacts. Sometimes the contacts get a little build up on them and it doesn't get enough contact to give you all your voltage.

Thermal Dynamics cutmaster 81. when turned on it cycles blowing air but no arc. two green lights are flashing. pulling the trigger doesn't do anything, air keeps cycling


Hi; Check the following troubleshoot and see if you can ID the problem:
Problem: Gas flows continuously when power is turned on, AC indicator flashes 1. Torch switch is activated (closed) before user turns power on. a. Release torch switch. 2. Faulty torch switch a. Check torch switch for continuity. Replace if necessary.
Problem: Gas flows continuously; Torch will not pilot when torch switch is activated; AC indicator ON 1. System is in SET mode a. Change to RUN / Rapid Auto Restart / SET switch to RUN (up).
Mostly of the problems found is that customer has the switch line on to SET instead of RUN.
Hope this help. Have a good afternoon.

Cutmaster 81 plasma cutter when turned on, starts normal but air solenoid keeps going on and off. What could be the problem?


Hi:

Sound like you have a faulty start cartridge, probably you used the torch handle to bang a metal part to make it fall. This is a common problem when using the gun as a hammer. Just replace the start cartridge. Before changing it; check the cartridge's lower end, this must move freely up and down.. If you did replace the cartridge already then probably your output power pc board it's damaged.

Plasma cutter problem - is cutting on beveled angle.


worked on units for several years,my first thought was torch consumables,then torch itself,so here we go.make sure all the consumables are exact for the torch,make sure all parts are brand new,(all parts,that way we can elimenate that part of trouble shooting).check that the ground is tight on the unit and work peice.When you bought the new torch head did you also buy the lead to the head?If not possible that could be the problem.

Check contacts in tip and be sure it is all lubed correctly. If you have good air pressure and flow it should arc after pulling the trigger for about 2-3 seconds.
