    Riland Super 160P manual needed.

    Hello,

    Long time lurker, barely post. Having trouble with my Riland Plasma cutter /arc /Tig machine. Using it in PLasma mode I cannot make a cut. Haven't got my welding leads to check if it works with those. Bought it years ago and it has served me faithfully for 8 years or more. Recently I moved my shop and it sat unused for about 6 months. I plug it into my 220v outlet and switch it on, everything looks normal... until I step on the pedal. I get What I assume is an error code of 038, and little or no arc at the tip of the stinger. Though, I wonder if the display is reading output amperage. You have to look very closely to see it at all. I'm hoping someone else has had this issue, or even better, has a user manual for this machine lying around. I have been unable to locate mine... I'm open to suggestions. I have cleaned the cord connections at the machine, changed my consumables, even reset the air pressure. I'm kind of in a bind as I'm supposed to start working on a "Monument" for my parents now that my mother has passed. Purchasing a new machine is not an option right now... Looking forward to hearing from the group!

    Cheers!

    Combo units like yours tends to self destruct. You could contact George on this forum. I think his screen name is Mechanic316?

    He repairs Chinese plasma machines.

    Re: Riland Super 160P manual needed.

    So today a friend who's far more savvy with electrical equipment came over to help diagnose the machine. We took the cover off and bleww a lot of dust out of it, checked the HF points, cleaned and tightened a few terminals, checked voltage at the outlet, checked the stinger switch and pedal., and so on and so forth until I was just about to give up. That's when I noticed the "Ground" clamp was attached to the negative terminal on the machine. Same as the stinger. Switched the clamp to the positive post, and viola! All fixed. Boy, do I feel dumb. I suppose that's what happens when you haven't touched the machine in 6 months and reassemble it from memory! It's all back together and working again. I did find the manual as well.... If someone would be kind enough to tell me where it should go, I will happily post it here.
