    Just hooked up my plow for the first time this year. It turns left and right and raises but it will not drop. Flip on the down pressure switch can hear the motor run.
    Serial #14484 Model # DB - 1037 -C
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Got it working. Bad connection. Cleaned the plug and receptacle with a wire brush and some carb cleaner. Works great. Just in time the for the big storm coming in tommorrow.

    Thanks, Woodeye

    Put some di-electric grease in the connections.

    hey! similar problem here.. plow angles, goes up, and drops half way. doesn't appeaar to be anything mechanically keeping it from dropping. how can it be electrical, though? once the valve opens to drop it shouldnt it go down all the way? stops about 8 inches from the pavement. help??

    Are you sure your jack foot isn't interfering, or maybe the travel lock is still in place?

    stupid me! that's what it was... the foot wasn't locked in place and it swung around to keep the plow from lowering.. this is my first snow way plow - i forgot that thing even existed. shouldn't be doing this stuff with a fever of 103 and not thinking straight.
