        popndave: On the back of the machine near the power source cord is a supplementary protector, try resetting it.

        Hope this helps

          never had mine do that, but did pull the switch plugs in the torch out. cut the wires in the torch also. if the lil red reset dose not get it going give cruiser a quick PM.
          anything unusual happen to it ??

          had mine about 8 years now, only trouble was caused by me drooping some sheet steel on the torch hose.

          hope it works out for ya, its a great lil 110V unit. i couldn't live without mine.
          thanks for the help
          ......or..........
          hope i helped

            OK thanx nothing I can think of out of odinary used it one day now checked power through the reset, and power switch to cercuit board OK just not sure yet where it goes from there. Hoping someone had similar problem before I tear into it further. But yeah I got no complaints with it easy for on the go.

              Pop,

              Could be a bad fan motor, the fan motor has a small transformer on it that powers up the board. With the switch turned on the fan motor should have 115 volts going to the 2 black wires. If it's not there then the board may have an open trace, drop it down and take a look at the back side for any visible damage. If you have 115 volts at the black wires then you have a bad fan motor.

                Thanx Kevin I'll check the fan out. I've checked the back of the circuit
                board and looked over all trasisters W/magifying glass. Just a pian trying
                to figure where the next point is that should have power. i think there's a couple of relays on there also just don't want to short something else out
                testing it. Been there learned from that I'll check on fan and let you know. Thanks Pop
