    It sounds to me like a gas issue. Whether you have coolant flowing or not shouldn't affect the arc to test it. Yes after a short time it will over heat but just to test it out it won't matter. Unplug the dinse & try blowing through it to make sure it is free/open. It could be a blockage but you said gas comes out so maybe a leak that is drawing in air to the gas?

    Just to clarify when you change to the aircooled torch it works fine on the same material?

          Glad you got it fixed......just shows how the small stuff can trip you up.
          Are you going to cover the power connection on the side of the machine.....hate to see someone get zapped.
