Re: 2166 Calibrate Header controller help

Sadly, I went through exactly that last fall. In our case, the darn machine wouldn't let the header down, but it would go up just fine. I don't remember what exactly we did, but I know we went through that recalibration routine several times.

The dial, right arrow, dial other way, right arrow sequence set the highest and lowest possible spots on the potentiometers (height sensor) on the feederhouse. This is why you want to do this over a ditch so the header can actually go below the wheels, as it would if you had to cross a terrace or something like that.

I thought the concave zeroing setting was a different part of the menu. Maybe it is the same menu, you just cancel through the header height setting part.

If you don't have the header on the machine, that might be causing your error, as there isn't enough weight to force the feederhouse down at a rate fast enough for the calibration program.

Check the error code list in the operators manual as saskman says. It will say something like an open/short circuit on the lower solenoid.

Re: 2166 Calibrate Header controller help

you are in the correct area to zero the concave calibration. It is the last step before your feeder calibration. At that point you can cycle the reel switch from manual to auto to manual to exit the calibration mode and save the concave zero! hope this helps Hho error code indicates a feeder position potentiometer fault.

left hand pot on top of feederhouse check to see if the numbers change in header postion in A post not sure if 21-s had that or not but tells you right off if it's bad
