It was cutting and acted like it burnt out I replaced the electrode and nozzle but will continue to not strike if anybody has ideas I would appreciate it thanks
Could be an airflow issue. Was this after you replaced a nozzle? I had bought some consumables one time and used the nozzle that came with them. After speaking someone on this forum he mentioned the nozzle needed 6 holes and most of the chinese replacement parts came with a nozzle that had only four holes. I looked and sure enough there were four holes. Put the old nozzle on and it was cutting like a champ. Hopefully it is just an airflow issue.
I had a torch head burn out and it did the same thing too. I took the torch apart to find out.
