    Hiniker 8ft straight plow. i have power to solenoid and power to the motor when i operate the remote but nothing happens. even hit the motor a few times to try and get it off the bad spot. now am I missing anything or is this a problem with the electric motor? One of my friends said you can take them a part and clean them, i'm not sure how and is it worth the time? thanks for all help in advance

    If you have power at the motor and it isn't doing anything I think you answered your own question. As for cleaning I think you're past that point
