  • Question for one of you Pros

    I purchased a used 675 X tream Plasma machine. Connected to 220V and 80 to 90 psi air. Say I try to cut a 1/4 in plate with it, I get maybe one or two inches into the cut, everything seems fine, then a loud "pop" and the arc goes out. Air is still flowing, but no cutting. And it usually won't restart right away.

    very frustrating

    is it me or the machine? I'm a newb, with absolutely no experience, but I want to learn.

    Are you sure that was 675...??? Not 625...................???

        What is the condition of your consumables on the tip? Do you have spares?

          Thanks to the forum, I found the manual, which I didn't have, and fount a list of consumables, again none of which I had.. it's the ICE 40T handle. I'll go down to the local Miller dealer tomorrow and pickup a replacement package, along with a replacement internal air filter element.

          All this equipment, including the welders belong to my Dad, who passed away three years ago. Everything has been sitting in his garage/workshop since his death, and I know nothing has been touched in that time, and maybe longer.

          ill post again, once I've changed everything out.

                      I'll have to check that out, been a while since I looked at it, thanks HOZ...

                      WELL... it wasn't the consumables ... stopped after work yesterday, and bought all new everything... still doing the exact same thing. Cut about two inches into 1/4 plate... POP. No more cutting ... looking at the schematic I see there are one or two time delay fuses. I'm going to order replacements and try it again.
                      thanks everyone for the suggestions,

                        Thanks. HOZ... I checked both the FCC webpage and QRZ ... both have me down as good till 3/14/2026... not sure what you were looking at, but thanks for checking anyway... out of sight, out of mind!

                            H80N... I like your Morgan... I have a pair of " B's" and 59 A (not running, project car... as if I need another project!... ) would love a Three wheeler but can't afford it. There are a couple here in the S. Nevada area, I see them once in a while.
