Is that me lol

    Cheers.
    The only electrical issue that would stop the machine working at all or intermittantly would be the dead mans control circuit, and they can be bad for that, get a close look at the switch and the track it runs on to make sure all is good ,some were switches, some were switches with rollers in them that ran on a track ... be a post elsewhere on here about them, or the other problem on those was a main power supply to puma caused by dodgy earths, there are about 5/6 earths all over the machine and they must all be cleaned and checked otherwise the unit would throw up errors,... but wouldnt stop a circuit working. If you have intermittant controls on some services its more likely to be sticking pilots in the handset, clogged return filter, some other valve problems,or a blocked pilot filter (if it has one) on some older Pel Job machines Ive seen the pilot filter no bigger than a boiled sweet, hidden inside what looks like a 'T' fitting, its just a matter of elimination ? Best start by telling us what works ok first and go from there ? mack sure you dont have a breaker pedal stuck on also !!

    morning muz and everyone thanks for the ideas, ive checked over and cleaned the dead man switch and the earth's in cab also changed all of the fuses below the seat and touch wood something that i have done either the earth's or fuses has sorted the intermittent problem with the servo controls and stopped the fault code 1.1 which is main power supply to puma, so I guess that was nakkard out fuses as they did look old and rough, but that's another problem sorted 😀👌 all I need to do now is get timber grab on and give her a good work out,

    Thanks to all for your assistance. .
    What a great place😁
