    Big thank you to everyone on this site for the help with my past problems!

    I have a 4400 and it ran multiple parts just fine all day then it started nosediving into the material. I checked this site and found another user with that problem and the suggestion was to reset the torch height. I did this but every time I datum or reset the Z axis the torch goes to the bottom of its travel and will not stop.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hitting Reset Z and the torch drops indicates a broken wire in the switch assembly for the Z axis. Look on the right side of the breakaway, where the two white square molex connectors plug into each other (red and black wires), look for a broken wire. If not there then remove the black nylon mounting block on the breakaway, behind it is a cover with two Phillips screws, check for a break in the wires there as well.
