    Are you connecting direct to the receptacle or using an extension cord?

    Apparently some models of the 625 run on 120, and some models don't. All depends on the serial#. Personally If the machine is autoline, then I'd trust it to work properly. So if you have a newer machine, lower the nozzle sizes. Maybe having a fault there.

    from product page

    Spectrum® 625 X-TREME™ with XT40 Torch

    Big cutting power in a small package - the industry's most portable and powerful 40-amp plasma cutter offers 5/8 in. mild steel cutting. The unit offers easy connection to 120V or 240V input with Auto-Line technology and MVP Adapters.

    confusing no?

    Out of curiosity, I looked at the Spectrum 625 Xtreme spec sheet on this Miller website, and here is what shows for INPUT POWER


    :4-1. Specifications
    Power Supply

    Input
    Rated AC phase (PH) and line frequency (Hz) 1 PH 60 Hz — —
    Rated Input Voltage (U1) and rated Input
    Current (I1) and I1 eff at rated output. I1 eff used
    to determine power cord rating
    Volts AC RMS − (U1) Amps RMS − (I1) I1 eff

    208 1 PH
    230 1 PH


    No 120v as Cruizer has already stated.

    Griff

    P.S.
    There was also a warning about incorrect input voltage damaging the machine. Soooo.

    I'd guess it would trip as there is NOT ANY 120 capability on a 625

    Make sure it's a dedicated 20amp circuit.

    Unplug anything else on that circuit.

    If it is try turning it down below max level on 120V

    Just a longshot; have you cut on this particular circuit previously?

    It could be wired as an arc fault interrupter circuit which will not run a plasma cutter

    as soon as i start cutting it trips the breaker? I've checked my settings and I'm running on a 20AMP receptacle and breaker? I may have skipped something in the manual...... any suggestions welcome thanks' dallas desantis
