    we have a fairly new, used plow and the plow won't lift. I hear the motor whirring and the blade will turn left and right but when the button is lifted, nothing happens. At one time the blade wouldn't move either to the left or right. Any ideas?

    sometimes the plug might not be tight, mess with the plug and see if that helps
