Good.
while it is in WARRANTY keep giving it a good work out... also stay within its Duty cycle.

Was there any obvious damage to the original board? Like funky caps or burned components?

No, nothing. The interesting thing is that it happened when I switched to tig for the first time after a year using stick. Maybe something happened when I set it for tig use.

Screw that. Crank it up and see if it times itself out after it’s worked. If it doesn’t and it burns up go after them. If it does then you know it should ‘protect itself’.

My PT185 has shut down due to heavy loads lots of times, until it cools off and is good to go again.
