I got a used 567 with net wrap and I took it out for the first time today. When I put the monitor in Net Wrap mode, the wiring got really hot. I attempted to make one bale, and the actuator would not cycle. I pried on the actuator and got it to extend out on its own, but it would not retract. I had to take the actuator off to get the net wrap to cut. The actuator retracted later, but would not extend out again. When it is not connected to anything, it rotates at high speed continuously. When I run the monitor in the twine tie mode, none of the wiring is hot. Is that actuator just burned up? Also, when it wrapped, half of the wrap went on the bale, and the other half is on the top roller of the baler. Something I did wrong? I have only run twine balers up to now. Sorry for my ignorance.

Wire the monitor direct to battery power. I bet that actuator is bad. You could take the actuator off the twine arms and plug it in to the net harness and see if that works.
Reason why net went around top roll is because your bale was probably too tall. I always wrap bales at 68 inches on the monitor. Another thing that messes with the net wrap wanting to wrap around top roller is the net wrap brush on the bottom steel net wrap roller might be really build up with dirt/ debris, It slows the feeding of the net and causes hair balls that catch on top roller and wrap. You can take it out and clean it or just leave it out. I just leave mine out I see no reason for it and no more messed up bales.

I wouldn't be surprised if your bale size was to big causing the net to wrap on roller. I also wouldn't be surprised if your actuator is burnt up. If it is they are a lot cheaper thru Shoup then deere.

"Also, when it wrapped, half of the wrap went on the bale, and the other half is on the top roller of the baler. "
Check your roller for burrs or small imperfections that may be snagging your net wrap.
We once had problems with our 567 occasionally wrapping the roller rather than the bale and found scratches, metal burrs, etc. on the roller from pocket knives. (clean out from baling wet material in rain and ended up with mud on rollers, belts, etc. in baler)
Polished up the roller and net wrap worked fine again.
