I cleaned my machine. The air assist fan was filthy, I follow all instructions. It IS turning and working properly but now when cutting my acrylic (same acrylic I have used for 1 year) there is a flame?
I have NEVER encountered a flame before can someone help
thank you for the comment. The flames are increasing in size and kind of scaring me. I cleaned the fan and this has never happened before. The fan was filthy, after cleaning the flames started. The fan is working though. perhaps I put it on backwards? I will check.
I believe the piece on the back was facing the incorrect way. Thank you everyone for the help! no more flame!!! I watched 20-30 videos and realized, I did everything correctly, but putting it back together, the fan housing was upside down. thanks again
The fan is clearly not working, If doing acrylic that is very dangerous s acrylic will go up in flame very easily. I would test it on a scrap piece of wood and watch what happens to the smoke. If the smoke rushes straight to the front it is working correctly at that location. If you have the fan in a magnetic field the results will be similar.
