Everlast 60s doesn't always turn off or on

I’m still in the ‘play’ mode with my table and plasma (read, still wet behind the ears rookie - so let me be first to say I’m completely uninformed and hesitated even wasting your time here - but I’m at a loss). I get the machine to cut and move as expected what I am having trouble with is the torch lighting or not turning off… I’ll double check the pin outs tonight (to be sure I’m on pin 1 and 2) but in cutting stuff out the torch ‘usually’ turns on and ‘usually’ turns off but not always… what else should I check? It most likely doesn’t turn off when it should - long cuts or short cuts don’t matter, but it is a random error… if I’m paying close enough attention I can hit the F5 key to end its mistake and the light on Mach3 indicating torch on/off is working fine…

Do you have the plasma cutter set on 2t and not 4t? Where is your ground clamp?

It’s on 2T, normal for pilot arc, and clamped to the water table.

On my I also run another jumper wire from the clamp to the piece. Double check your consumables and the swirl ring in particular. It should always get a pilot arc at least even without a work connection.
