Hi everyone, have put new actuator on rotor cover mechanism and still no go, is there a process to go through so cebis can recognize the parameters or something? Have tried fully closed at startup and fully open at startup but still defective motor alarm when using switch.

Yes I'm opening and closing with direct connection with battery just can't get switch control to work them

I am only familiar with a 740 with electric covers.

First off, can you unhook actuator linkage at actuator and slide the rod back and forth freely? Do this via the cover behind the engine.

Secondly, if like an early 740, the rotor actuator and speed I think are controlled by the rotor module. This should be one of the two located above the back left tire, above and behind battery box. I am 99% sure(100% with our machine) that these two modules/wiring can be switched to verify if the module is good. This other module is for the sieves.

Try that and see what the dealio is.

Also, I suppose you have checked fuses, made sure you are not in third gear or have transport mode on?

Did you unhook the motor and moved the mechanism by hand? That's where i would start.... You probably did that already!?

Have you unhooked wires to motor and checked for a good ground, good power, etc...

Verify that there isn't continuity between ground and power wire.

Remove switch and examine switch and wires.

Wiggle harness between switch and actuator.



On second thought, in my opinion, even if you got this issue fixed, the rotor cover linkage above the rotor grates is going to give so much trouble with built up chaff, you might as well not worry about fixing it the factory way. The only way I could make it reliable (and usable on the go) is putting a small individual actuator on the front rotor grate pair and another for the second pair.
