    Hi all,

    First off let me say this is a great site!!! Even though I don't post much I read through it everyday.

    I have a 29 series that quit working on me today. I was clearing a lot and I noticed it was getting slow. Then 10 min after that it quit working altogether. I had my spare parts with me so I tried a new motor solenoid and a new breaker but still nothing, When I tried and do anything all I get is clicking from the motor solenoid. Could it be a bad motor?:help:

    Could be the power supply. Check and make sure all your power connectiions are clean, tight, and attached directly to the battery. Try jumping the motor directly and see if it spins.

    When I got her home I jumped the motor and she spun up and the plow would move. It turned out that the second battery that the plow was connected to had a cracked terminal post and was not making a solid connection.I got it replaced under warranty and I'm ready for the next round!!

    Thanks for the quick reply!!
