Yesterday when I was Baling Straw, the last 10, 15 bales I had baled, the Alarm would Beep Beep, and I had to shut down the Baler.
I would have to turn the Monitor off, press the Deere Sign, and turn the Monitor on, go to Channel 14, and manually extend the ram, of the Actuator, shut the Monitor off, and on again, restart the Baler, dump the Bale, and carry on. It sometimes would go ok, then the Alarm would sound again,, and repeat the above process, and Manually extend the ram on the Actuator, to cut the Net Wrap.
Just wondering, if it could be a Connection, or is it the Monitor acting up. Any Help, or Advice, will be Greatly Appreciated. Thanks in Advance. Bruce.

Error Code?


I don’t think it showed an error code. I’ll see what it does, the next time is does it.

Have you checked amount of volts going to monitor?

For some reason, it wasn’t extending the Actuator. Going to unplug the connector for the Actuator, and see if it’s clean, or some corrosion. I had put close to 300 bales through it, so far this year, and didn’t have any issues, until the last 10 - 15 bales I put through, on Sunday.

I do have another Monitor here, for the Baler. If it acts up again, I’ll swap out Monitors, and see if that helps.

I agree with you that exchanging monitors would be a good diagnostic step.

Another thing I was thinking about, as I did have it happen before, a couple off years ago, the connection between the Monitor, and Baler, had worked itself loose some how, I’ll check there as well.

Update. I unplugged the Actuator, and discovered that the plug had a lot of Junk, and Debris in it, cleaned it all up good, and never had another issue with it.
