Customer Question
I have a JD...

I have a JD 4044M with 170D loader. I have the 3rd electrical SCV installed to operate a Frontier Grapple. Recently, I can not get the grapple to close. It is getting hydraulic flow but it seems to be a flow keeping it open continuous in the open position. The continuous flow switch for the 3rd SCV on the control panel is off. Not sure what is causing it. My guess is electrical. Connections all look good.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

1LV4044MKFH210283 Model 4044M

Your third SCV switch on the control panel needs to be engaged for those Hydraulics to work so I would check the wiring and connector pins for problems to the switch and then from the switch to the solenoids. The first step would be to test your fuses for power on both sides with the key on and replace any fuses with power only on one side. Be sure to check all your relays as well.

• Continuous Flow Switch (A): This switch will supply continuous flow to a hydraulic device.

• Off (B): Place switch in this position to deactivate continuous flow from the 3rd SCV outlet or depress the bottom of control switch (H).

• On (C): This position will activate continuous flow from the 3rd SCV outlet after the key switch has been turned on. Turning the key switch off will deactivate the continuous flow circuit. When the key switch is turned on, the 3rd SCV continuous flow circuit will not activate until after the operator presses and releases the switch in the momentary enable (D) position.

NOTE: The green light in the switch will illuminate if continuous flow is activated.

• Enable (D): This is a momentary position that will reactivate the 3rd SCV continuous flow circuit. When the switch is depressed and released, it will return to the center on position.

Using 3rd Selective Control Valve (SCV) Outlet Control

The 3rd (SCV) outlet may be operated in a momentary condition to operate attachments such as extending or retracting a hydraulic cylinder. The attachment will receive full hydraulic flow in direct response to the use of the control switch.

No, I already knew that information. The valve control was sticking in the open position.
