German term or phrase: Teile gehen an der Trommel an
A farmer complains about his 'Häcksler':
Wird während des Häckselbetriebes das Schneidwerk auf und ab gehoben so gehen irgendwelche Teile an der Trommel an.
I take the first part of the sentence to be:
If the cutting gear is lifted up and down whilst cutting straw... but don't have a clue what the consequence of this is. Can anyone help?

English translation:My theory is ...
Explanation:
that during operation when the cutter section is lifted up or lowered some parts of the drum are operating when they are not supposed to.

My suggestion:

If during the straw cutting operation the cutter section is tilted up or down some parts of the drum are operating.

You will have to figure out if this fits in your context.

Hope it helps.
