    My blizzard 810 will not go up, down, left or right but the wings go in and out. The motor runs in all functions but nothing happens. I check all conections and can not see a problem but Im guessing its a one of the coils I just dont know which one. The 810 will some times go up and down when you use the power hitch switch but it doesnt always work. Also when you put the plow in float the light will blink on the control. :help:

    Mike, Actually sounds like a bad valve or two or a bad ground wire lug. Check your main ground on the plow and the group of red wires connected to the ground. Next is the plow in mid air that it won't drop or are you only talking power down. I'd lean to bad #3 or #4 valves causing bleed by back to the tank. J

    I'd recheck the conectors, I've had that happen a couple of times and it was the connector.

    Jerre thanks for jumping in!!!!!!!!!!! It does it in mid air and on the ground with the power hitch and the control but it mainly doesnt work on the control and sometimes goes up and down on the power hitch.

    Sounds like a valve hanging? Do you have good voltage? Poor connections + and - can cause a coil to not fully engage a valve.
