My JLG 3246 scissor lift has issues. It will not go forward

Customer Question

My JLG 3246 scissor lift has issues. It will not go forward or reverse until i'm approximately 6'-8' up in the air. Below this point the wheels will turn but no noise whatsoever, above this point it drives normal. Beyond that it seems like when I'm right at this point or just up beyond it, the brakes are not disengaging quite right. When it is trying to drive it sometimes jolts like the brakes were holding it but then it will break free and move forward. Any ideas what's going on? Thanks
JA: The Industrial Equipment Mechanic's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost. What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?
