    Need help please.

    I have a torchmate 5x10 table Accumove 3. Flexcut 80

    The plasma cutter does not fire at all.

    The AVHC lowers to the surface of the plate, then it rises to set the pierce height and the air comes on like it is going to fire but then just sits there and never fires. I have changed to new consumables, doubled checked air supply (85 psi).
    I do get two lights on the plasma cutter itself. The first light that comes on is the OUTPUT red LED light and few seconds later the yellow PIP (parts in place) LED comes on. I have replaced everything with brand new consumable parts. ??

    If anyone has any suggestions I would surely appreciate it.

    Thank you in advance.
    Brad

    Did you check to see if you are set to Dry Run on the VMD? Have you checked all your grounds? Are you settings correct? There could be a number of things going on. When we have issues we start with the basics.

    Validate you are using the appropriate consumables by checking the part numbers.

    There are a few pins on the torch body, PIP, switch. Validate that it is there.

    If by toggling that switch and still getting the same error, then there is an issue with the torch body itself.

    The issue is this switch is not depressing/toggling when replacing the retaining cap.
