Krone 1250 baler sensors

I brought myself a krone baler 1250 roundpack as a little project. Have fully gone through it and have it all working apart from when I press the button to feed the net, it keeps feeding the netting and won’t stop. Looking at the two sensors on the netting system, they look fairly worn out and battered. Could this be causing the netting to not finish cycling or am I missing something. If it’s the sensors then does anyone know where to get them or what are they called. I can’t see anything on them

My own does that occasionally, have you tried turning on and off the clock when it happens? Is it doing it every bale or just every so often?

Tbh I only forked 2 bales of straw into it to test it. I had to turn off the clock to stop the net feeding both times. Planning on hitting the field with it in a few days time. I downloaded the manual and checked everything over but no joy.
I’ve the medium controls and there is a dial that goes 1 to 5 from twine to net. What number do people usually set that to?

Have you the comfort control box,
On the 1250 I use to have there was a counting sensor beside the belt pully that engage s the netting to start it off,
Did the baler start to net before you wanted it to net

Thanks for all the help lads. Got it sorted last night. The sensor was faulty and not close enough to the spider wheel
If you download the manual online and get the serial number of your baler it gives great details of how to have everything set right for the net, if everything is set up correctly the 1250 is as good a baler to work as you will get, easy on power, easy maintenance, great chop and a good tight bale from the locked door

Just a thought is the Net Knife Sharp:unsure: ???

All parts Present and Real sharp ??? .. any problems with mine like that was mainly down to the knife

Also have some Talc powder in the net box ...... small bit on the Rubber roller solves lots of issues when it gets Damp :cool::cool: .
And check the bearings in the feed unit are running Free

They are a Basic Net unit.....
