Fisher M/M won't go up

Sorry if this question has been asked! I'm in the middle of a snow storm and my Fisher M/M won't angle or go up. It was sticking a little when angling left earlier but now it won't go left or right or up. This sucks! Any suggestions? Thanks!

How is your fluid, perhaps frozen up ? Pump screen clean ?

It should be clean and the fluid should be fine, as it was just done a week ago. It's not that cold out either. The guy before me who bought it had problems and the dealer said water got into the fluid. They cleaned it out and all. I'm thinking maybe electrical? I'm not sure. Maybe it's what you said. First time owning a minute mount lol. I've only used older plow hitches.

I don't even know how to go about checking the pump screen, etc.

I'll check the fluid. Is it possible to froze up while it's been in use for a couple hours? I've never had an under the hood hydraulic pump's fluid froze up on me (though I've had it run slow in really cold weather).

The truck has been sitting for an hour or so now, and now the plow is working again. What would cause it to go from not working, and then shutting the truck off for a while, and the plow then works?

if its a minute mount it should have electric over hydraulic power pack, or a conventional mount that has a belt drive system on it ? Service that pump, clean the inlet screen and put new fluid in it...

Like Walt said, pull the fluid resevoir. Get rid of the old fluid. Clean the screen or change the filter depending upon what it has, refill with new fluid (the good stuff). Repeat the entire process after using it for a couple hours. May require several flushings to get rid of the moisture.

Check to make sure the breather cap is there. If it's missing don't bother doing anything until you replace it.

If the problem is electrical, check all the connections on the grill, clean them and grease them with DIELECTRIC grease. Make sure connections at solenoid and pump are ok and then check all your grounds, ALL of them.

Good luck.

I think it's the solenoid. We'll see how it comes out!
