    Pretty simple? The plow will fall to the ground after aprox 15 seconds. Goes up fine, but won't stay up unless I hold the up button. Anywhere I should start?
    Thanks,

    Absolutely, start here in the Meyer forum with a search as this is a very very common
    issue with a Meyer. Use keywords such as "A valve". "packing cup" or "base O-ring".

    Also, going through the troubleshooting/repair manual will help you with your diagnosis too. They can
    be found at the bottom of the page here: Meyer Repair Manuals

    You know, I looked for a search button before signing up and couldn't find one. I thought it was odd that this site did not have one. Now that I've signed up, I notice that the search feature is available to me. I'm sorry for posting this question. Thank you for the help with search terms however.

    What type of pump do you have.

    If you have a e 47 then it is the valve in the back of the pump, if it is a e 60 then the vavle is on the top.

    You need to make sure the o-rings are good and that the vavle is not stuck..

    It's an e60. I'll check the valve. Thanks!

    It's all already in the manual I posted so be sure to check though it thoroughly. If you need more specific info than it provides just holler.
