089 – Waiting for Kicker reed switch to be on.

Posted by & filed under .

Note: This code occurs after the Reset Bundle button has been pressed. After the machine has retracted the Kicker cylinder, the Kicker reed switch should be lined up with the Kicker magnet located in the round plastic, which turns the switch on. This is what the machine is waiting for.

If the Kicker cylinder is fully retracted,

– Check the air gap distance between the Kicker 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 Kicker cylinder is partially retracted,

– Check that a bale or foreign object is not preventing the Kicker 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 Kicker 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 Kicker from retracting.

– Check that the directional valve is not stuck.
