Electrode comes loose

I have a fairly new razorweld cut 45 with the J45xc-6 torch. I had the first set of consumables fail after a tip up, and ever since I cannot get the electrode to stay put in the torch. It is just a Taper fit holding it in. It will work for a few inches, come loose in the torch, and of course cause mayhem. Is this a common problem?

Welcome aboard,

Yes that is common with those torch’s. I would change the torch out for a machine torch like the PTM 60.
