(in my humble opinion a piece of metal falling off the inside when it is sitting on the ground untouched is faulty)

Did you make sure you didn't hit your duty cycle? I used to have one of these and they would weld for a ten minutes of heavy welding and then shut down. I thought I blew it up. But I came back about two hous later and it worked fine....... I would bet you hit that.
