Dan :

Hi my name is***** will try to help. Double check on that fault code to be sure you are not missing a digit as it does not show a 7.2 in the list.

Check your safety interlock switches and harness(Seat switch, lap bar/seat belt switch, door switch if equipped)

Dan :

If any of these switches or the harness has a problem your functions will be disabled. Let me know and I will be glad to help

Hi Bill. What I do have is 7-22 which is 07-22 Hydraulic Oil Temperature Out Of Range LowHere is a free manual available for the S250 but if you give me your serial number I could likely help you with the correct PDF manual for your machine that will have all your schematics, repair info, and test specs. double check to see if there are any more codes and let me know.

Hi Dan its Bill with s330 bobcat with the bucket that wont move its a 2008 with 536 hrs serial number A 02040211 still getting code 72.2 machine moves turns can lift the bucket just wont dump or curl, no movement at all, was plowing snow when it broke Checked all safety connections on door seat bar, all look good, any ideas where to go from here? lts 12:00 pm here et an im going to the bobcat now, you can text me at ***-***-****, thanks again

Customer reply replied 7 years ago

Hi Dan you can text me your answer at ***-***-**** about the bucket not moving on the s330 bobcat

Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 7 years ago
Hi Bill. A common problem related to the symptoms you describe is with the lift/tilt actuators and harness. Try swapping the lift and tilt actuators and see if the problem moves with it. they have to be calibrated after installation by either the bobcat software through a laptop or there is also a manual procedure using the joysick levers with a sequence of movements. I need to check which order they are as I dont recall off the top of my head. The concern here is an actuator problem will throw a fault code in most cases but the number you ar getting does not match an actuator problem but your symptoms do however. Check the harness and actuators and let me know
