Rick, Do you have the valve open on the torch? on mine if it is not it will do the same thing.

Thanks for the response, but I was replying to an old thread, having just debugged a couple of malfunctioning Oxycon units. 'Was asking to see if Stone had solved his problem.

Boy, this sure caught my eye ... my Oxycon is not working properly and I'm wondering if someone out there has experience with these units. I've never used it (but it is used), and I can't get the flame on my minor burner to do anything other than shoot out a really long, yellow flame that will go out if I turn the oxygen on at the torch more than a little bit. No blue cones in focus, nothing I can work with (unless I want to burn down the house!).
