Plow won't move

    I have a Fisher 7'6" straight blade. The lift cylinder had started leaking right at the end of winter. I just got around to replacing it. The problem is now the plow won't even move. I got it to go right , but it won't go left or up. I don't know if it will go down since I can't get it to go up. I don't understand how replacing the lift cylinder would make everything not work. The motor runs but it kind of whines.

    Check the fluid levels.

    I added a little bit. It didn't seem to help.

    Try the grille plugs. They are known for rotting off with-in the plug it'self. Look at the plow end and see if there are 9 pins. try wiggling the plugs while someone else holds the control to raise, and see if you get any contact.

    possiblyt air in the lines.... work it back and forth (l to r) manually if needed and check the fluid level again after.

    Could be wiring- valve not opening but motor pumping. Have someone hold the stick in the left position and try pushing the blade by hand. If it won;t budge the valve is closed.
