033 – Waiting for Vertical Plunger Up sensor bar switch to be on.

Posted by & filed under .

Note: This code occurs when the Reset Bundle button has been pressed. The machine begins its reset mode. In order to properly reset the machine it retracts the Vertical Plunger cylinder (unless it is already retracted) and waits for the Vertical Plunger magnet to be in front of the Vertical Plunger Up sensor bar switch. The switch is located at the top of the sensor bar at the white mark.

If the Vertical Plunger Swing cylinder is fully retracted,

– Check the air gap distance between the Vertical Plunger Up sensor bar 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 sensor bar needs to be replaced.

If the Vertical Plunger Swing cylinder is partially retracted,

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

– Check that the directional valve is not stuck.
