    PM 45 replacement parts needed - man down!

    The power supply switch on my powermax45 **** the bed today. Won't flip to the on position. In addition to the air sensor light always being orange.
    I can't find part numbers for these the manual doesn't show these parts either.
    Anyone got a better site?

    The service manual (free download at www.hypertherm.com) has almost all parts listed. Technical service is always there to help with troubleshooting....which you may want to do regarding the pressure switch light staying on. (Likely it is not caused by the switch).

    What typically causes it? The water trap is bone dry, I blew out all the lines. Everything is pretty clean and seated well

    I personally have never heard of the air sensor light always staying on, however if you contact technical service they may have. They spend their workweeks talking with worldwide customers with issues....and every conversation gets documented so they have a great database and steer people in the right direction. I can help you with cut quality issues!

    Best regards, Jim Colt

    Finally the parts showed up.
    Got the new power switch in and I swear I don't know why i have to fight with the case on this thing to fit right.
    Also threw in the new pressure sensor and ta da! All works well.
    She was cutting great tonight

    One day i'll upgrade to the 45xp or 65 to where the software can control the air pressure and amperage for me

    In the mean time get one of these little crappers and mount it directly to the cart the machine sits on.It's about $50 and you can make a little angle bracket with a hole for that ring to hold it.Then, if you're like me, 50-75 feet from the compressor you know exactly what you have at the machine and the last bit of water that was in the hose all night gets snatched out one last time.
