    Baling there now and the controller for the baler froze . None of the buttons or the screen would work. But the baler still netted the bale just gave me no warning it was doing it till I heard the knife go in . Plugged out the 2 plugs on the side of the baler for the circuit board which seems to have solved it . Anyone had this problem before

    The hours rpm and the crop doesn't move infront of the baler on my monitor.
    Is it that sensor next to the rotor bearing?

    The sensor for the speed takes it reading from the main drive cog on the crop rotor .There should be a little plate bolted to the cog that passes the sensor to give a reading . Had an issue with the one here not taking a reading and in turn the door sensor`s not working . Solution move the sensor slightly closer to the cog (cant see how it moved away in the first place as it was tight ) Your`s is a 220 though and from memory any of the 220`s i drove didn`t have the rpm showing .

    There's no rpm showing mine, it shows the lumpy row going in and the hrs worked though. The boxes do lock-up so i'm told, I guess nothing works then.

    Does your one count hrs worked from when the clock is plugged in . The 235 and 245 now only show hrs worked with the pto on .

    Mines a 235 profi.
    Picked up a sensor last week as they said 7 of them are the same so might be handy keep one will give a look see if it's moved away

    Yes as soon as box is plugged in, there's no sensor to tell it the pto is on!

    Apoligies thought it was a 220 . There`s away to check if the sensor is working on the control box only checked it last week on the one here . If you go into the menu and go in to dianagnostics and then press the top right hand button you should come to a display (you have to press the button a few times cant remember how many )that will show an image similar to the one below . Where you see rpm written and a plug symbol beside it and then a line that line should flash when the baler is running or constant if you hold something metal in front of the sensor . If you have no line no matter what you do the sensor is fecked . Here`s a link to a pdf file on the manual for the controller .http://www.lelynet.com/_layouts/15/document/TechDocHandler.aspx?name=1745-99-03-02_-.pdf&mode=view

    Good man I knew about checking the sensors that way alright although I had forgotten to a real handy way of checking it.
    I wonder are the 3 connected to the rpm?

    Lads ran into bother today everytime the baler went to activate the motor to cut the net the controller powers off.
    It started the sequence so it did cut it.
    If you press any button it doesn't effect it but if you press plus an minus together it turns off the controller.
    I wonder Is there a wire damaged in the lead

    For anyone looking at this.
    Bit of chaff had went into the motor that triggers the net knife and was shorting it out.
    Blew it out and away it went!!

    Hi, reading this as having the same problems with screen freezing. Did you solve the issues? Is it possible to upgrade from Elink to the pro version? Thanks.

    Never had that issue again. Plugging ont the plugs on the side of the Baler seemed to have solved it . On the pro link controller to the best of my knowledge that was only available for the tornado and of no benefit to a standard Baler .
