Western Pro Plow Problem - HELP!!!

    I have an 8' Western Pro plow about 4 years old. I'm having problems with the pump, it won't stop running at times. It started doing this last season and I put it off till now. The controller works fine but all of a sudden the plow will get a mind of its own and keep running. I've flushed the fluids and put in a new regulator but no help. The fluids are topped off at the right amout so its not running low. Also if you turn the controller off at the joy stick when it's doing this it won't stop. I have to unplug the plow wires (which are warm by this point) or the pump will run forever. Any ideas out there? We had an early storm and I had to hire out my route, can't afford to keep doing this.

    I wrote regulator but I meant solenoid, sorry. I changed that and also have another new one.
