LOADER. The self-test is meant as a way the user can diagnose any issue with the loader
quickly. The self-test feature will perform 3 tests described below. Note always check that
fresh, brand name alkaline or lithium batteries are installed when running self-test. For best
results use 6AAs (Duracell/Energizer) during self test.
Test 1 Drive Sensor Test
This diagnostic tests the Drive Sensor System which controls the speed of the loader and detects jams in the system. The LED will blink ORANGE one time to indicate Test #1 has started.
The loader will then spin for a short amount of time to test the drive sensor. After the loader
stops spinning the LED will turn either GREEN or RED to indicate the test has passed or
failed respectively. A GREEN LED equals passing and RED equals failing. This test will run up
to 3 times. If it fails after 3 times it will move onto the next test. If all 3 attempts fail, the LED
will blink RED 3 times after the last attempt.
Test 2 Feedneck Break Beam Sensor Test
This diagnostic tests that the Feedneck Break Beam Sensor System is working. The LED will
blink ORANGE two times to indicate Test #2 has started. During Test #2 the loader will not
spin. When the test is finished the LED will indicate GREEN or RED if the test passes or fails
respectively. This test will only attempt one time.
Test 3 Motor Control System Test
This diagnostic test indicates to the user whether or not the Motor Control System is functioning properly. The LED will blink ORANGE three times to indicate Test #3 has started. During
the test the loader should spin first forward, then in reverse for equal amounts of time. After
the test the LED will indicate GREEN or RED if the test passes or fails respectively. This test
will only attempt one time. After Test #3 the LED and loader will turn OFF.
That is a pretty cool feature to come on a reasonably priced loader.
