Power Hitch Problem

I have an 8'6" Blizzard plow with power hitch. When I use the plow mounted switch to get the claw to grab the xmember and pull the plow in it makes a noise like it's working but the claw doesn't move. The claw does work if I flip the switch on the inside controller to regular plowing and hit "UP" but then I can't see what's happening at the plow. Why does the claw work one way and not the other?

When you use the hitch switch, you are operating the lift and lower coils along with the motor.
Check out the switch and the diode pack for corrosion. You may be getting power to the motor, but not a coil.
