    I have a fisher electric plow that was hesitant to drop down. Sometimes it would'nt and sometimes it would drop down. Now it wont drop down. Need help.

    there are valves that are covered by a black plastic shroud. What i usually do is run a power jumper wire from the battery and touch it to each solenoid on the plow and you should be able to hear the valve move... if you cant hear it take it out and do the same thing while looking for movement. if you have no movement you know either the valve or the magnet is shot

    take that plactic cover off check for magnetism to s1 wenh the plow is in float mode or wenh a buddy hold the down button s1 is the on on the left if no megetism check power

    if you got no power try to find why
    if you got power but no magnatism check connection to coil if connection are good the coil is fried
    if you power and mag. sount like your cartridge but get it check by an expert or get more advise on it
