090 – Waiting for Horizontal Plunger 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 extended the Horizontal Plunger cylinder, the Horizontal Plunger reed switch should be lined up with the Horizontal Plunger magnets, which turns the switch on. This is what the machine is waiting for.

If the Horizontal Plunger cylinder is fully extended,

– 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 extended,

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

– Check that the directional valve is not stuck.
