    Just when you press up left or right. Test light time. Ck for pwr to the solenoid, should have on one side. Then pwr to small signal wire. Then ground at the other small wire. Then when u,l,r are pressed you should have pwr at the other big wire going out of the solenoid

    . Thank u. I think it might be the motor. Had a helper and when I tapped on motor it started to work and when I hit it hard it worked for about 5 minutes and stopped again until I whacked it again......where is the best place to but a motor at a fair price. Thanks again

    Hi, I'm having the same problem/issue as you, except mine kept working & making excessive noise. One of my problems was the plug for the pump controls. After cleaning both ends of the plugs & re-greasing them, that worked. I did all the plugs while I was at it. I also worked the angle pistons both ways to get the pump moving. I was told moisture from the summer months built up some corrosion, & working the pump cleaned it up. I don't know why the pump is making noises yet.
