    sound like the valves are sticking. They may be all gunked up or there could be water mixed with the fluid and freezing up on you. You might want to pull the vavle out and check its condition.

    What valves Should I be checking out. Is there a procedure to this? I have the manual to refer to. Will the pressure be effected by checking there valves? Thank you for your help.

    I Took the three coils off and pulled the valves out, The valves apeared to look fine, I cleaned the coils up. It works then it still has the same problem, slow and does not always want to work. I went throught the connections, cleaned the ground. What should i do now? I ordered a replacement motor and will install it as soon as i get it. I thinking the motor may be weak.

    If your solenoid clicks, and the motor doesn't operate, you have an electrical problem. Start by cleaning all positive, and negative power connections including inspecting the cable ends for corrosion. Consider a continuous duty solenoid to replace the cheapy that came with your plow. Next, if it is the motor, do not buy one of those $50 junks off of eBay, they don't last! Pay the $150 at the dealer, these last much longer. :salute:

    Thanks For the reply, I bought a $109.00 off ebay O well its in the mail. I will go through the connections. the connections on the motor are frozen up, the stud in the motor is comming out when i try to take the cables off. Thats why i bought an extra motor, I dont want to strip the stud out on the inside the motor. As for the solenoid, ill pick one up, what is on it now an Intermittent Duty Solenoid? Whats the difference?
