    Go through all relevant steps in the manual trouble-shooting section, recording the results, and call Hobart. If it is under Warranty, then don't open it up until instructed to do so.

    It sounds like it could be a common thyristor problem, that Hobart is familiar with.

      Does the gas and weld output(will the wire arc) also quit?
