Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. First check that the feed roller and drive coupling are in tact and not damaged, If ok check the hood safety switches as if any of the switches are bad or not activated, feed will not work. Check the harness and connectors too. Let me know

Hi Tom, i worked for a Morbark dealer in the past and have first hand experience on these chippers. We can post back and forth as needed for you to get the information you need.... My last post was on the 4th... You never came back to ask for more info or say you even needed more help until today 11 days later.... Did you get this resolved or still having problems? Do you have a digital volt OHM meter and know how to use one?

Can you send info needed to check and reset program for auto feed?
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

Tom, There were several different style Tachs Morbark used on their chippers and this model. Morbark tech support is very good at walking you through the calibration process or faxing/e mailing over some info on this by your serial number. Click on this link and reach out to them with your serial number. run through the calibration steps for your style tach and if unsuccessful let me know as there might be other electrical problems such as a speed sensor, safety switch, harness problem etc causing your problems.

Here is the link.

The solenoid (fuel shut-off), part #RE53507, was malfunctioning (I think) so I replaced it. Still having the same issue. When cold, it will start aperiodically, run for about 5-minutes and then shut off. The Solenoid gets very very hot and there is a faint "burn" smell. I've check online tractor forums and it sounds like the issue is a, 1) bad starter relay; 2) bad ignition power relay (I think 1 and 2 maybe the same); or 3) a bad thermistor (whatever the heck this is). … read more
