009 – Waiting for Horizontal Plunger reed switch to be on.

Posted by & filed under .

Note: After the machine has retracted the Horizontal Plunger cylinder, the Horizontal Plunger reed switch should be lined up with a set of magnets, which turns the switch on. This is what the machine is waiting for.

If the Horizontal Plunger cylinder is fully retracted,

– Check the air gap distance between the Horizontal Plunger reed switch and the magnet. The distance should be a maximum of 3/8 inch (9 mm). If it is within the suggested range then the reed switch needs to be replaced.

If the Horizontal Plunger cylinder is partially retracted,

– Check that a bale or foreign object is not preventing the Vertical Plunger cylinder from retracting.

– 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 power or return has been disconnected or shut off.

If the Horizontal Plunger cylinder is still extended,

– 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 Horizontal Plunger cylinder from retracting.

– Check that the directional valve is not stuck.
