SOURCE: I can hear my fisher plow motor but the plow will not lift or angle

Check/replace under hood motor relay. Spend the extra $2 and get the fisher part. Do not even bother with NAPA junk.

SOURCE: plow lifts great when cold gets weaker and weaker as it warms up. could it be as simple as the fluid is to thin?

  • Oil viscosity is dropping as oil warms up. Check that plow stays in up position. If plow creeps down than a leak by the piston seal or manifold valve is likely.
  • Check for contamination in tank. Suspect pump has worn and is loosing pump efficiency. Metal particles in tank are an indication pump is failing.
  • There may be a repair kit available. Make sure that system is completely clean.
  • Only use pump manufactures recommended fluid.
  • Install a pressure gauge on pump.
  • There is a pressure relief valve in the system. Ck if contamination is holding it open or spring/valve seal is bad.

There solinoids on pump. Check wiring and grounds. Make sure all small wires are intact and in good condition. But most likely there's a loose corroded or green wire causing issue

When i try to lift or angle my plow all i get is a clicking sound when i push the lift button and when i let up on the button the moter on the hydrolic unit will click but will not move the plow. minute...


Not familiar with model, but valves click at the same time motor is suppose to run. Check power and ground to motor (or try running it with jumper cables, but don't be where plow can angle and squish you. If good power but won't spin, clean brushes/commutator/check bearings in motor.

I just bought a 1986 chevy 1/2 ton with a fisher plow. I hooked up the plow and it won't go up or down, or left or right. The controls work, if I move the pistons on the valve body it still does'nt work....


un bolt the motor from the base, the pickup is just tin, they rot off and fall into the base. you may have valves stuck too, but if nothings moving and pumps running, it should labor BADLY
