Debarker
« on: November 26, 2019, 01:43:28 PM »
Help!

I have a woodmizer LT35HD, I have only had it for a few weeks, its brand new. I ran a few logs through no issues but then the debarker stopped cutting. I had already completed a cut which it worked fine but when I went to engage it again nothing. I have checked the breaker and that's not popped either. I am able to move the debarker in to the log but the blade will not spin and the light on top does not come on. 

Any Ideas from anyone.
Thanks

If it's not the breaker then I would place a call to Wood-mizer and get someone to walk you through a diagnostic test.  Could be a connection has come loose, switch is bad, relay is not closing, etc.  Having a multi-meter and power probe will make figuring out issues like this a breeze and will save lots of guess work.

+1 on making the call to WM.  A phone call often saves significant time and puts a warranty issue on record if needed.  The warranty is there and so is the support without extra cost.

Had the same problem on mine. Check the breaker inside the metal box (you have to remove two bolts to get to it. That breaker is a weird switch. Itís got a small arm that trips downward.
Flip the on/off switch on the control panel a couple times, too.

   I think Cedar Buster hit the nail on the head. I bet you are talking about the breaker on the control panel. Check up in the black box on the back side of the debarker. Mine just flips down when it trips. I bet you a bowl full of grits against a quart of maple syrup that is what it is

Yah, I checked the funky hidden one in the box, as when I picked up the saw during my training I remembered that specifically. It was not popped, hence my confusion on why it stopped working.

I had this happen to me with my LT40HD.  I allowed the debarker to dig too deep into the log and it popped the breaker on the back side of the control panel.  I would bet your LT35 is the same.  Look on the back side of the control panel for a popped CB.  I'll bet that's all it is. Not inside the box, it's on the back side of the control panel.  It should have a rubber boot protecting it from moisture. It should be labeled "AUX" I think.

WV Sawmiller, as long as you don't mix the grits and maple syrup, everything will be fine.

jd99,

   Okay - you checked and wasn't that so I owe you a bowl of grits. Let me know when you are stopping by for them. I might even have a plate of fried catfish fillets/nuggets and baked beans and cole slaw if I have enough notice.:D

jeep,

   No you don't have to mix the maple syrup with the grits although some people do strange things like sprinkling sugar on them instead of butter or gravy and I suspect there are cretins who do things like that. I generally make them go eat on the porch when they sugar the grits as it ruins my appetite. :D
