032 – Waiting for Vertical Plunger Up sensor bar switch to be off.

Posted by & filed under .

Note: After the machine has extended the Vertical Plunger Swing cylinder, the Vertical Plunger magnet should be moved away from the Vertical Plunger Up sensor bar switch, which turns the switch off. This is what the machine is waiting for. The switch is located at the top of the sensor bar at the white mark.

If the Vertical Plunger Swing cylinder is fully extended,

– If the Vertical Plunger Swing cylinder is fully extended then no magnets or metallic materials should be near the switch. Lightly tap the switch to free up the stuck switch. The switch may need to be replaced if this problem continues.

If the Vertical Plunger Swing cylinder is partially extended,

– Check that a bale or foreign object is not preventing the Vertical Plunger Swing cylinder 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 power or return has been disconnected or shut off.

If the Vertical Plunger Swing 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 Vertical Plunger Swing cylinder from extending.

– Check that the directional valve is not stuck.
