Troubleshooting Your CNC Shark: What to Do When It Won't Turn On


A CNC Shark router is an incredible piece of machinery that can make your woodworking projects more precise and efficient. But like any piece of equipment, it can run into issues or fail to turn on. In this blog post, we'll explore possible reasons why your CNC Shark won't turn on and provide you with helpful solutions to get it up and running again. We aim to cover various issues that could be causing the problem, from power supply problems to software issues and everything in between.

Power Supply Problems

1. Check the Power Source

Before you panic about your CNC Shark not turning on, the first step is to ensure that it's connected to a functioning power source. Check if the power outlet is working by plugging in another device to see if it receives power.

2. Inspect the Power Cord and Fuse

A damaged power cord or blown fuse can prevent your CNC Shark from receiving power. Carefully examine the power cord for any visible damage or fraying. Also, check the fuse on the machine to see if it needs to be replaced. If either the power cord or the fuse is damaged, you may need to order a replacement.

Software Issues

3. Update or Reinstall the Software

Software issues can sometimes prevent your CNC Shark from turning on. Check for any available software updates and install them on your computer. If you've recently installed new software on your computer, you may need to reinstall the CNC Shark software to ensure compatibility.

4. Reset the Machine

In some cases, a machine reset can resolve software issues that prevent your CNC Shark from turning on. To reset your CNC Shark, follow these steps:

1. Turn off the machine and unplug it from the power source.

2. Wait for at least 10 minutes.

3. Plug the machine back into the power source and turn it on.

Hardware Problems

5. Loose Connections

Loose connections can cause your CNC Shark not to turn on. Before diving into more complex troubleshooting, check for any loose connections in the machine. Inspect the wiring and ensure that all cables are securely connected.

6. Check the Emergency Stop Button

The emergency stop button on your CNC Shark may have been accidentally triggered, preventing the machine from turning on. Verify that the button is released and not stuck in the pressed position.

7. Examine the Controller Board

If you've tried all the previous steps and your CNC Shark still won't turn on, the problem may lie in the controller board. Inspect the board for any signs of damage or malfunction. If necessary, consult an expert or consider replacing the board.

Preventive Measures

To avoid issues in the future, keep your CNC Shark well-maintained and follow these preventive measures:

1. Keep your CNC Shark software updated.

2. Regularly clean the machine and keep it free from dust and debris.

3. Inspect the wiring and cables regularly to ensure they're in good condition.

4. Keep your workspace organized to minimize the risk of accidents or damage to the machine.

Seeking Professional Help

Sometimes, even after trying all the solutions mentioned above, your CNC Shark may still not turn on. In such cases, it's recommended to consult an expert or contact the manufacturer's customer support for assistance. They can help you diagnose the problem and offer specific solutions or replacement parts if necessary.

While every CNC Shark owner hopes never to encounter problems with their equipment, knowing how to troubleshoot common issues is essential. By understanding the possible reasons your CNC Shark won't turn on and following the steps outlined in this article, you can save valuable time and money by resolving issues quickly and efficiently. Remember to perform regular maintenance to minimize the risk of encountering these problems and keep your CNC Shark running smoothly for years to come.

What is CNC Turning

CNC turning is a process that involves using computer numerical control (CNC) machines to shape and finish various materials, such as metals and plastics, into desired shapes and sizes.
This process is typically used in the manufacturing industry to produce precision parts and components for a wide range of applications, including automotive, automation, aerospace, medical, machinery, and industrial.
