003 – Waiting for Kicker reed switch to be off.

Posted by & filed under .

Note: Before the machine extends the Kicker cylinder, the Kicker reed switch is in front
of the first magnet mounted in the round plastic. When the machine extends the Kicker
cylinder it rotates the round plastic, moving the first magnet away from the switch,
which turns the Kicker reed switch off. This is what the machine is waiting for.
If the Kicker cylinder is fully extended,
– Loosen nuts on Kicker reed switch and hold the switch away from any magnets or
metal for approximately 10 seconds. Check tractor box display to see if it is still
displays “003”. If it does, lightly tap the switch on something to free up the stuck
switch. The switch may need to be replaced if this problem continues.
If the Kicker cylinder is partially extended,
– Check that a bale or foreign object is not preventing the Kicker from extending.
– Hydraulic power or hydraulic return has been disconnected or shut off from machine.
This circuit has a 2-position valve and cannot be partially extended unless hydraulic
power or return has been disconnected or shut off.
If the Kicker cylinder is still retracted,
– Check that hydraulic power is still on to the machine and that return line is still
connected.
– Check that a bale or foreign object is not preventing the Kicker from extending.
– Check that the directional valve is not stuck.
