    Went out to plow today and the plow won't go up. The motor comes on and it does angle.
    Then I noticed the float light is on all the time. I suspect it won't raise cuz it also is trying to float!
    Bad Electro Touch?
    Anyone else have this problem?

    TIA

    Pull the black wire from the pump and see if it raises then.

    Thanks Basher. I did that and it did raise. I assume that meant the electro touch was activating the A coil the same time it was trying to raise the plow.
    Anyhow, I replaced the electro touch with a slick stick and it works again!

    Just in time. It's snowing now (11AM) and it's supposed to snow all night!
