Motomaster motorcycle jack won't raise

I raised my motorcycle off the ground to store it for the winter using the motomaster jack . Now when I want to lower it to the ground the jack will not raise the bike to enable me to release the lock bar. the pump doesn't seem to do anything. I suspect that the hydraulic fluid may have leaked out. So, what can I do to resolve this problem? Also, in your manual, page 5, lowering the vehicle, point 3, it says "remove handle from ram and place on release valve then slowly turn release valve counter clockwise to allow jack to to slowly lower the vehicle". But your manual does not list the release valve only the release pedal. If this is the same item then how do I rotate the release pedal with the handle? Please advise as soon as possible as I want to use my motorcycle. Thanks. Peter, Oakville.

Hi Bogdan:
Seems there may be some confusing instructions.
Here's what I would try. My approach would be intended to get the bike off the stand before I tried to trouble shoot the motomaster jack.
1) Use the handle to rotate the release valve to the right (clockwise) until it is snug.
2) Pump the jack to try to raise it. If it raises, then press the release pedal and use the jack handle to slowly rotate the release valve to the left (counter-clockwise) to lower the deck.
3) If it does not raise, I would use a separate jack to raise it, then follow the prescribed lowering procedure, and at the same time, use the control on the extra jack to manage the lowering.
Once you get it partially lowered, hopefully the motomaster jack will start to function and you can lift the bike far enough to remove your extra jack.
Hope this helps.
To let me know if it works for you, please reply as a comment to this post..

I have a 36ft winnebago Chieftain on a F53 chassis. I need to replace the fuel pump in the tank but the leveling jacks seem to go around the tank any idea how I remove them to get to the tank. If at

I dropped the tank on a 34' Fleetwood with the same situation. The jacks were welded on so there was no removal option. What I did was (1) Cut eight 4x4 s into 12" sections. I bolted 4 sections together to make a "pad". One 8" 4X4 makes two pads. (2) Then I pumped the fuel into drums. Free drums are easy to find. A cheap 12V fuel pump and tubing is available from any auto supply. (3) I raised the camper on all 4 jacks. Than I retracted one jack, set a pad in place under it and extended the jack fully. Clockwise I put pads under all the jacks one at a time to make a layer. Then I put in another layer of jacks, round and around, and continued until the camper was up 4 layers. (4) The camper could "roll" forward off the jacks at this point because the wheels were off the ground. I attached a chain to the camper frame and took tension backwards using a come-along chained to a tree. (5) Then I got some pallets from the grocery store trash and put those under the tank. (6) I loosened the hangers for the tank and let it down on the pallets slowly. The hoses have to be removed before the tank drops very far. I worked the pallets out one layer at a time to lower the tank to the ground. (7) I could reach the pump mounting plate so I just removed the screws and lifted out the pump and gasket. (8) installation was the reversal.

If I had to do it again, I would take it to Camping World or a truck garage. They have lifts to raise the camper and jacks to raise and lower the tank.

Back wheel lowering when jacking up car

I am going to assume you are raising the body with the jack.
If so, you would have to raise the car most of the capacity of the jack ( 6 - 12 inches) to get the wheel off the ground.
This is normal. If you have a floor jack you might be able to put it under the spindle that holds the hub bearing.

    Floor jack will not lift car off jack stand

    It sounds like you have MAXED out the absolute HEIGHT that the jack is CAPABLE of extending to.
    Try this to test this theory; Remember though before you !!EVER!! attempt to raise a vehicle with a jack, make sure that the vehicle is on FIRM LEVEL ground and that the JACK is likewise. Even if you have to slowely drive your vehicle a short distance in order to attain level ground, DO IT. THIMK! It could mean the difference between whether or not you live to tell about the flat you changed.
    Get yourself a piece of 'treated' 2"x10"x 2' lumber which you will put in the trunk of your vehicle with your jack. It is now 'married' to your jack.
    Chock the Tires on the opposite side of the vehicle that you will be working on. The weight of your vehicle will be redistributed when you jack up the vehicle. Even though you will have it in 'Park' you do NOT want it to move any at all. The chocks will prevent this.
    Place that piece of lumber beneath your vehicle below the 'jack point'.
    Place your jack squarely on this piece of lumber and slowly crank the jack up, keeping your eye on the jack point where the jack is in contact, until the tire is off the ground about 1/2 inch, any higher and you are just wasting energy and time. Once the tire leaves the ground it is high enough to remove from the vehicle. You may have to raise the vehicle up a bit more in order to replace the flat with a good tire. Be SAFE, Start low and work your way higher.
    The REASON for the piece of lumber under the jack is to distribute the weight that is now bearing on the jack so that it does not depress into the ground. It also provides you with a stable platform to begin with and gives you TWO more inches of height to use with the jack if needed. Use it even if you are on asphalt because depending on the consistency of the asphalt material and how HOT is is from the current weather, the jack could settle a bit into the asphalt and this procedure could prevent this and keep you safe.
    If you are using jackstands, use a piece of treated 3/4"x10" square, plywood under it as well to keep it from settling into the ground. Raise the vehicle only high enough to slip the jackstand under the portion of the vehicle where you will be placing it and still allow the tire to be removed.
    Be SAFE and live to tell the tale. :)
