    Need more info, will it raise and lower how about right angle. First try to get the truck inside to warm it up could be froze,next you might have to crack open a line to relieve the pressure. Sounds like mabe a bad coil or valve. give us more info and we'll help you figure it out. scott

    Naturally you changed the fluid in the reservior when you replaced the lid and seal. You said there was water in the system.

    Did you drain the contaminated fluid from the angle rams? Ice doesn't flow through hoses too well. :(

    Had Same Problem

    I have a brand new E-60 and had the exact same problem. Angled right but would not return after only 6 hours of use. Took it back to dealer. He told me that the couplers had been recalled by Meyers. In addition had to replace a coil and also said the pressure was set too high from the factory. He reset it to 1500lbs instead of the 2100 lbs they had.

    If you want to free it up (temporarily) do like I had to do. took a hammer and small chisel and just tapped the couplers off. It relieves the pressure but is only a temporary fix, about 20 mins or so.

    Hope this helps you a little

    I would look at the quick-couplers too.Could one be only partially engaged ? or some dirt stuck in it. You may have to crack a hose loose to relieve the pressure to pop the couplers off.
