    Do you have access to a parts book to track the source of this screw?

    I would be concerned. Is something inside coming apart? Or was an extra screw "lost" when the machine was assembled?
    Since you say 100 hour service, is a warranty still ineffect? If so, I would get the dealer involved.

    It's the MF 2615, dealer says its a screw from the hydraulic pump.

    He made an incident report to MF on it.

    He's gonna fix it the next time it goes in.
