Hi everyone, I have a Gleaner E combine and I am having trouble figuring out how the rock door light switch is supposed to be hooked up. When I first got the combine the light was flashing all the time, and the rock door was closed. I think someone before me moved the switch around and now I can't figure out where it goes. Would any of you know where that mounts to or better yet have a picture? I have checked multiple manuals and none of them show that part very well. Thanks Jeff

Sorry my terminology might be wrong, what they call a switch in the manual is a piece of metal that on one end has a rubber gromet and a screw through. After doing some more digging the wire hooks to that screw. Then the screw is grounded out when the door is closed, if the door opens there is no longer a short and the light will be on.

Sounds like you've got it about figured out. But I was thinking the opposite- the screw touches metal, completing the circuit when the latch trips, causing the red light to come on.

Is there any wiring in the area of the rock door? Early systems were rudimentary......I remember the walker light "switch" on the Model K was simply a wire on a metal plate that was connected to a screw which shorted out to another plate. Not like later systems with micro switches. Look for something that is rather primitive. I have a couple F machines- will check what they have....

Remote thot----look in the area where the door latch snaps open when a rock opens the door. Part of the latch may make contact with a wire to complete a circuit or ground it, causing the light to go on.

I thought also,it was just a wire with a peg the peg is insulated, and grounds out to the frame. Door pops open and the peg no longer grounds, no light.

Not really a switch, just a peg or pin with a live wire to it?

No luck. I checked mine - I have the light but can't find a switch.

Sorry I can't help you with the switch, but I do share your frustration with not being able to find a pic of the part you are working with, but finding pics of every part you are not working with. I thought I was the only one this happens to. Have a safe harvest. Jim
