Help I just got a k40 bought a chiller 3000 to go with it. Chiller hooked up but not putting water to laser. Also I push test fire on laser it doesn’t fire. Any ideas what I doing wrong? Edit: Chiller Works

It IS or IS NOT firing?
Do you have the laser enable SW engaged?
Do you have power switch or emergency switch engaged?
Post picture of machine panel.

Sorry I didn’t check before I posted, it isn’t firing. I have found it will fire with the test button on power supply but not on panel. Chiller is working I was wrong on that. The alignment looks like Stevie Wonder did it, it’s way off.

Of course no help from seller yet ugh…

When you tried the test switch on the panel did you have the laser on/off switch engaged?

If the machine has a water flow switch; water needs to be flowing and the switch working for the laser to fire from the panel.

Its a common problem for the water flow switch to be bad…

Laser switch is on emergency stop disengaged. Is there a fix for the flow sensor?

@Steve_Britt you can short it out to find out if it is what is wrong. If its bad you will need to replace it or repair it. Depends on the type it is.

Do you have a water flow switch. Picture?

Is this it?

(Don Kleinschnitz Jr.) #11

yes, pretty common for these to fail. You can short out the connections to test if its the culprit.
