    powermax 1000 problem

    I recently bought a used powermax 1000, after about 1 minute of cutting the machine stops cutting and the display shuts off. I can hear the machine running (it makes a slight clicking sound but no fan running) but there are no lights on the front. I can turn it off and then back on and sometimes the display comes back on and I can cut for another minute before the it stops working again. Any help would be great!

    Most likely is a loose or corroded wire connection inside the power supply. I would disassemble the unit (disconnected from power) and unplug and replug every connector (there are a lot!) multiple times, blow out any dust and clean connections with electrical contact cleaner. In many cases this will solve the problem, Even better.....contact Hypertherm technical support at technical.service@hypertherm.com or 1 800 643 9878 with the symptoms.....they talk to customers all day every day and have likely heard the same symptoms….they often can steer you in the right direction.
