Well, this is embarrassing. I'm new to CNC. I was running a couple test files. I changed materials (and thickness) without doing a tough off. The cutter came down and jammed...stopped. I hit stop on the controller, but not soon enough. Now the router won't turn on. I have the 3 axis Axiom pro 6. Is there some kind of a reset?

My experience with this was to just turn the controller off and then back on after a few minutes. You can also check whether your red E-stop switch is engaged and release it. Also check the circuit breaker from your house wiring. There is mention of an internal breaker in the manual I have but it doesn't have a schematic showing where it's at. Maybe someone else has a suggestion or two. Good luck.
The VFD display will show an error (something like "OL"). Shutting it off should reset it. One time I had it (the spindle) stop due to human error, and didn't reset the machine, and started the file (not noticing that the VFD was showing and error) and since the spindle wasn't running (due to the spindle being so quiet (and I was wearing hearing protection) I didn't notice that the spindle wasn't running), I promptly broke a bit and damaged the piece of wood. Expensive lesson to learn.
Also keep in mind that if the error for the stoppage came through a VFD Fault, the VFD remains powered up from it's large internal capacitors for a while after you physically turn the machine off. Give it 30 seconds to a minute before powering it back on if you want to reset the VFD.
