Had trouble with lower sieve remote actuator last year. Replaced it today and am now getting a fault code A-0124 lower sieve not in commanded position. no other details. Can't find anything in the manual on this. Anyone know how to fix this code? Thanks in advance.

You get this error when the lower sieve isn't in the correct position, if you want 6mm and he stays at 8mm, then you get this error. have a look if the sieve isn't stuck somewhere, maybe recalibrate.

This may or may not be your problem.
Have you had rain on the machine lately?
Right behind the chaff spreader control valve there is a couple of big electrical connections that junction.
One comes down from the top & has a rubber sealing boot on it. Undo the connectors, pull the rubber boot back & blow out any water. Clean & dry all connections in both sides.
I cut a small hole in the bottom of that rubber boot so if water does get in, it can get out the bottom. Happened on my previous CX & happened on my current CR. I've had no problems with it since - maybe it hasn't rained enough for us to really test it!
Every year, I pull that apart & clean it out.
Engineers & designers - please fix this PITA.

Thanks for the replies, combine has never seen a drop of rain, comes home and goes in the shop every day. Calibrated after I installed actuator, but will try to recalibrate.

If the sieves have been properly calibrated and they are free to move. then the problem is likely to be that the sieves are manually adjusted too far one way for the sieve to actually make it to the desired position. The 10mm bolt on the sieve adjustment may have to be loosened and the sieve adjusted.

Hey Rod,

I know there was an issue on the CR MY12 with the water in the connector, as far as I know, the CX doesn't have the rubber on it, we never had problems with that connector on the CX. on The CR it's already fixed.

I get a similar message when I adjust the lower sieve on my CX840.
I find that when I change the sieve if I go past where I want it then
back a little I don't get this error code.

Will go out and have a close look at this.

On the red combines the harness that feeds both of those sieve actuators were problematic for rubbing and chaffing and just plain not working even there was no obvious evidence on outside of loom.

can you adjust the sieve from the rear controll,? i had the connector that connects the actuator to the harness with those little pins wear through on one pin , you need someone in the cab to t5ell you wats goin on whilst you wiggle the conection , either that or check the relays for the sieve control , a wise man who has allready commented on this thread allerted me to this issue , and its cleared up more than one problem for me on the cx,

Sorry for not updating sooner, but with harvest and all... anyway the problem was a broken wire at the back axle were the wires from the actuator are zip tied to the back axle. When pulling the wire loom off the wires anywhere there was a zip tie the wire loom had rubbed though the wire's insulation and bare wires could be seen all along the harness. Had to replace that section of wire harness. Think NH needs to use better wires or cheaper loom, and not pull up the zip ties so tight. Mechanic said he has run into this a few times.
