    New EMP235i with the Power Cord misrouted

    I received my new EMP235i on Thursday. I wanted to play today but the cord is all twisted in the top of the case and I can't get it out. I took four screws of the front handle but it doesn't seem to do the trick. For now it seems my only option it the cut the cord at the plug end, unravel the cord mess and put a new 50 amp plug end. Bummer!

    Any suggestions for me?

    Take the case off and remove the cord from the connections inside the machine and fish it out of the handles to save the plug?

    Looks like a fun puzzle to me. Take one of the loops and pull th whole machine through it, see how that changes the situation.

    Call ESAB and ask them what to do. That is crazy. You can unbolt the top roll bar, just two hex bolts on either side. I had mine off when I put on the cable holders on.
    Now it seems all I own are ESAB products, a lonely Hypertherm 85 and couple of Miller XMT's.

    Do you think it shipped from the factory like that or has someone been in the case before you? Can't imagine it being put together like that.

    I can. I've seen some crazy Chit come off of production lines. Very few production lines workers care when somethings wrong and even if they did there's usually nothing that they can do to stop the line and fix the problem so into the box it goes and the lucky buyer gets to deal with it. It's what happens when a company puts more emphasis on production than quality.

    Anyone remember the show about Lucy working on the bon-bon production line?

    Yeah, these being made in China, I doubt the assembly workers care too much about how the power cord was poorly routed...

    No video didn't answer! The cord was looped around the handle! The only option was to cut the cord to pull out. My picture shows that. ESAB sent a new one to replace. Case closed!
