I want to change my tools and make the height control with this macro but When I run this macro my computer freezing.What is the problem with this code.I get this code from this forum



ChX = GetUserDRO(1200)
ChY = GetUserDRO(1201)
ChZ = GetUserDRO(1202)
Swposx = GetUserDRO(1203)
Swposy = GetUserDRO(1204)
SwError = GetUserDro(1205)
CurrentFeed = GetOemDRO(818)

If GetOemLed (23) Then DoOemButton (119) 'Turn soft limits off

Code "G20" 'Set to inch units

Code "G53 G00 Z" &ChZ 'Move the tool all the way up
While IsMoving()
Wend
ZOld = Getdro(2)

Code "G53 G00 X" &Swposx & "Y" &Swposy 'Move to the switch position
While IsMoving()
Wend

MsgBox ("Jog Z axis down close to switch then hit Cycle Start to resume")
SystemWaitFor (Start) 'Pause macro to jog the Z axis close to the switch

Code "G31 Z-7 F10" 'Move Z down until switch is triggered
While IsMoving()
Wend
Code "G4 P0.1"
HitOld = GetVar(2002) 'Get the position where the switch was triggered
Code "G53 G00 Z" &ChZ 'Z move all way up
Code "G53 G00 X" &ChX & "Y" &ChY 'Move to change tool position
While IsMoving()
Wend

MsgBox ("Insert the new tool")

Code "G53 G00 X" &Swposx & "Y" &Swposy 'Move to the switch position
While IsMoving()
Wend

MsgBox ("Jog Z axis down close to switch then hit Cycle Start to resume")
SystemWaitFor (Start) 'Pause macro to jog the Z axis close to the switch

Code "G31 Z-7 F10" 'Z move down until switch is triggered
While IsMoving()
Wend
Code "G4 P0.1"
HitNew = GetVar(2002) 'Get the position where the switch was triggered
Code "F" &CurrentFeed

Diff = HitOld - HitNew
DiffABS =Abs(Diff)

If DiffABS=0 Then
Code "G53 G00 Z" &ChZ
Code "G53 X0Y0"
While Ismoving()
Wend
DoOemButton (119) 'Turn soft limits on
Code "(New tool is now ready for use)"
Exit Sub
End If

ZNew=0

If HitOld < HitNew Then ZNew = ZOld - DiffABS :A=1
If HitOld > HitNew Then ZNew = ZOld + DiffABS :A=2

Code "G53 G00 Z" &ChZ
While IsMoving()
Wend
Call setdro(2,ZNew - SwError)
Code "G53 X0Y0"
While Ismoving()
Wend
DoOemButton (119) 'Turn soft limits on
Code "(New tool is now ready for use)"
End

Run the Macro into an edit page and try stepping through the macro line by line.

Either it will not run at all - in which case it should tell you which line of code is faulty, or it will run line by line until it comes to the faulty line.

Try that - if it will not work I will download it to my machine and see if it will run on this.
Not me driving the engine - I'm better looking.

I tried step mode and find that in this line comturer working so hard and slow then it freezes
The line is

"  Code "G31 Z-7 F10" 'Move Z down until switch is triggered  "
