    Hi guys,
    Any one with a Fisher Xtreme V heard a buzzing vibration sound within the pump housing, it happened today when I stopped the truck and the blade was in the up position. Vibrating sound for 30 seconds then stopped... just never heard it before, any body know ? Many thanks, Mike.

    Haven't heard anything like that yet, granted today was the first day using my new XtremeV. No complaints so far.

    It's likely the motor solenoid partially stuck is what your hearing. Have seen it a couple times so far. Replace it. :nod:

    Fisher Xtreme V - making buzzing sound

    Hi guys, just a follow up on my Fisher Xtreme V SS - it was making a buzzing noise coming from the pump area.
    B&B was exactly right - it was the motor solenoid and it was sticking. Replaced it yesterday - cost $23 solenoid kit # 56131 K.
