    Help needed powcon 400smt

    Ok so this is the story guy had this listed for 200$ on offerup had 3 phase plug on it. Told him that without seeing it power up i was willing to do 175$ A steal (i thought) so i picked it up cut the plug off and followed the directions on the underside of the case rotated circuit board 180 so that 230v was on the top removed brass buss bar that connected 3and4 and moved it to 1 and 2 and added buss bar to 3 and 4 droped the red wire on breaker/on off switch and isolated it. Now i plug in and when i flip the breaker to on it comes on very briefly with a strange noise then kicks off not sure if this is a capacitor issue possibly a on off breaker if anyone is familar with these machines or has had this issue i could use some knowledge i hate going down the rabbit hole

    Cheers justin
