We recently got a 2388, and the feeder makes a huge noise when it is switched on after the rotor is going. We have found that this can be avoided by flipping the switch for the feeder and then the rotor, so that they both come on at the same time.

My question is, will this cause any sort of damage or harm to the combine? I have been used to always having the rotor going before the feeder is switched on.

thats how we've always done it. I leave the header switch engaged all the time and just use the seperator switch.

Cna't imagine what it would hurt

Sounds like the engage is jumping in quickly. Check tensioner adjustment is correct and that the spring rod is not sticking. May require a clean.

Added an orifice to my 2188, makes a world of difference in engagement.
Orifice PN. 134713A1
Fitting PN. 201319

around $60 for both.
