Bought a new to us 4790. Its one of the late ones (06-07 I think). The previous owner used the bale ejector to extract a bale but never retracted it back. Now I cannot get the thing to retract. According to the book I've done everything right. PTO not running, hydraulics on, flip the switch.......nothing. We have a 3 bale accumulator hooked to the thing. It works fine. The book says to put the ejector/accumulator switch in the ejector position. I cannot find that switch on this baler and I'm guessing that would be a feature on the older balers with a manual valve. Mine has the electrical connections to solenoids. I've got power at the switch and constant power at all the solenoids (which doesn't make sense to me). All the others I've ever seen only have power when you want to activate the coil. Perhaps a problem? But the accumulator works fine with this setup. It's confusing as heck. Anyone with an idea please let me know. This baler has the Fieldstar monitor and I have made sure that the ejector option is activated in the settings. Thanks for any info.
