Default 2nd Hypertherm goes boom

1650 this time. WTF is this normal for the older units? Unit was about 6 years old with relatively low use, maybe two or three times a month tops. It had sat for a couple of years unused but seemed to work fine for several small jobs. Guy running it said it had started crackling and popping inside the machine so he stopped (probably tripped his breaker). Turned it on in our shop and it went boom with a little cloud of smoke.


Any good, trustworthy repair places to get it looked at? Nearer to Livonia the better.

I've always heard that hypertherm has excellent customer service.
There should be a list of svc. centers on their website or maybe just call them.
You could check out weldingweb.com they have a hypertherm section.

Since this is a couple of weeks old you've probably already found a solution though.
