    I have a 6 /12 Meyer plow that is firmly stuck to the left. Through the course of this year, the plow has been having spuratic small episodes of having difficulties returning to the right. After much troubleshooting, I finally dissassembled everything, including the hoses, and the a frame still would not move from the stuck position. I am thinking that the left cylinder has ceased...although now that I am thinking about it, I didn't remove the quick cupler on the right cylinder, so if for some odd reason it was filled with fluid it wouldn't be able to release the pressure...hmm...well nonetheless, any ideas? I am about to go and push it up against a tree to get it unstuck...:confused:

    Thanks Dude, so was that saying that it is a bad coupler disconnect?

    Yes his prob was the coupler but yours might be the valve. Connect the 2 rams together and raise the plow you should be able to move the plow by hand the default for the meyer is to angle left when pump is energized. It could be some other things but try that first.Can get you the trouble shooting guide or stop by the meyers site.

    Check your C coil, it is the one with the green wire, I had the same problem and replaced it and it works perfect now.
