068 – Waiting for Left Band Out reed switch to be off.

Posted by & filed under .

Note: After the machine lowers the Right/Left Bander cylinders it checks to see if they are down by making sure that the Left Band Out reed switch is off. When the Bander cylinders go down it moves the Bander magnets down with it. This removes the magnet away from the Left Band Out reed switch, turning the reed switch off. This is what the machine is waiting for.

If the Left Bander cylinder is fully retracted,

– Loosen nuts on Left Band Out 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 “068”. 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 Left Bander cylinder is partially retracted,

– Check that a foreign object is not preventing the Left Bander cylinder from retracting.

– Electric power or hydraulic power or hydraulic return has been disconnected or shut off from machine.

If the Left Bander cylinder is still extended,

– Check that hydraulic power is still on to the machine and that return line is still connected.

– Check that a foreign object is not preventing the Left Bander cylinder from retracting.

– Check that the directional valve is not stuck.
