Program paused VFD spindle ramp up

I entered G4 P2000 after the S18000 M3 in the program and when it read that line it would proceed after that. It just froze up.

Any help would be appreciated.

Your command told the machine to pause for 2000 seconds. You might want to use something like G4 P5 or a M0 (MSG, Press Continue when spindle at speed) type command.
