Pausing While Running



The machine pauses repeatedly and constantly while running a file


The issue is that the machine was told to pause the file.


There are a few reasons the machine might constantly pause while running a file.

  • The start stop box might be in the wrong mode
  • The pause switch may be dusty or damaged
  • Keys may be pressed or damaged on the keyboard. Check the keyboard by cleaning it or replacing it with a similar model.
  • Do not attempt to do other things on the computer while it is running a file. In order to run a file, the Techno CNC interface must be in complete control of the computer. The user is unable to do part design, CAM work, web browsing, etc, while a file is running. Performing any of these tasks will pause the run.
