    Also make sure your flowmeter adjustment is open.

    Please write in words rather than numbers. Some of us are old enough that we dont read "text".

    Do you have your leads reversed? Gas is only fed out the Negative contact. If you had the machine set up for DC+ Stick and did not reverse the leads - no gas.

    No gas will come out until you contact the work piece. Set the gas pressure, set the process selector switch, make sure the torch is connected to the negative terminal, connect the ground cable. Then touch to the workpiece and hold down. Should hear the solenoid operate and gas flow. Now lift the torch to establish the arc.

    Just a comment - on this forum it is appreciated if you use proper grammar, punctuation and spell check before posting. Short forms like 2 for to and u for you make for more difficult reading and cause confusion.
