    Hello, I was out plowing the drivway this afternoon & the plow quit working. It won't go up or down or left & right. It is a 2 toggle switch setup. All I get is clicking if I try up & left to right. Any help would be appreciated. I'm going out to work on it again. I'll check back a little later. Thanks Cal

    Here is a link to the Meyers repair manual it has some decent troubleshooting steps. It sounds like your pump motor isn't working. the solenoid is clicking but the motor is not turning. I would first check all the power wires to the motor. Try putting power right to the motor with jumper cables. You can also try jumping the solenoid. I usually use a pair of channel lock pliers to jump the two big terminals.

    Thanks SteveB(wi). I did what you suggested & the motor brushes were
    junk. I cleaned up the armature & put in new brushes & bushings & it works great. Thanks again CalC
