Need help with angle issue. Slick stick or something else?

I have an E47 Meyer set up with a Slick Stick controller (Part # 22092). Here are the symptoms: Plow angles only to the left when I move the switch to the left OR to the right. I swapped the hydraulic lines (left to right/right to left) and now the plow moves only to the right, again it does this when the switch is in the left OR right position. Up and down works with no issues, and the motor also runs in all switch positions. My best guess is that it's the Slick Stick that went bad but I'm very new to fixing plows and would love a second opinion before I start throwing parts at the issues. Thanks.

I am having EXACTLY the same issue with a Kubota plow that has a hydra power unit with electric controls - the same as most truck mounted plows. I searched out this forum for answers and found your post.

I have triple checked ALL circuits and IMHO it is not your controller but a bad C valve. IOW, one valve is defective and is not opening to allow the hydra fluid to enter the cylinder.

I'm now trying to sort out which one on mine goes to which cylinder, as it's all on one block with no ID. Next is finding a replacement that will fit.
FWIW, I'm attaching a photo of the block with 3 valves. On mine, it's power up, gravity down, power left angle, power right angle.

Hope that helps somewhat.

Follow up.

The valve is a solenoid that either allows or stops fluid from flowing to the cylinder. I found a local OE supplier and mine is $17. Will have to wait until tomorrow.
Since you reversed the hoses and it works in the other direction, it must be a bad valve or the wires to that valve.
