Snoway not working. Burned out 2 new solenoids.

Having trouble with my snoway with down pressure. I think it is a 2004 model. Has a white control. It worked fine until the pump/motor went out. Dealer replace that and a new solenoid. Worked for one snow on 6 driveways then quit. The solenoid just clicks.

I replaced the solenoid and it worked for 4 driveways then started working really slow. Now it just quit. Solenoid just clicks.

I am afraid to just try a new solenoid for $30 for fear that it will just do the same thing.

Any ideas?

You said a dealer replaced the motor and solenoid?
Take it back and let them front the bill for repairs.

I think you need to get the dealer to look at. It must getting way too much amperage.
