Problems with m Fabtek 4 Roller
« on: August 11, 2014, 09:00:50 AM »
I'm hoping someone has some insight for me.  I have a Timbco 415C with a Fabtek 4 Roller head.  I changed the wire harness from the boom to the head, and all the head functions worked except the wheels won't spin to feed the log through.  They spin backward but only forward for short spurts or not at all.  The return homes sensor for the saw bar is lighting up when it returns home.  A fella at Fabco told me to pull out the #2 & #4 relay and switch them.  I did that and it started working again.....and then yesterday it stopped working again.  I've replaced the relays now, with no effect, and am at a loss now.  Any advice???

Do you have some wires crossed in the new wire harness?

I don't know that particular machine, but I know with other Valmet machines those connection blocks can have some loose screws. Recheck all your connections and make sure they are in the right place and tight.
