If the sound sounds like it is coming from the hydraulic motor try tapping on the motor carefully and see if they then operate.In some cases the motor may bind up and tapping may free it up and in other cases the motor can fail needing replaced.If this was already attempted with no success let me know.

Do you have one battery or two in this unit? It sounds like this is a low voltage issue caused by having a battery that is low on charge or failing. Get back to me with the information on this and I can assist you in sorting this out. A small digital multimeter would be helpful here. About $20 or so at most hardware stores and easy to use. I can direct you in some testing. I think that this would be much easier to work out over a phone chat, but that is a small upcharge and totally optional. Many of my customers prefer that. Get back to me as all follow ups are included in our fee.
They can. Most batteries will only go about 3 years. This needs to have the largest batteries you can fit in there. Two 6 VDC golf cart batteries wired in series is the best, ***** ***** two 27 series 12 VDC batteries wired up in parallel. I would have the batteries load tested to be sure they are viable. A reading with a meter would give you some idea of the voltage available and if they are being charged adequately. You should see about 13.7 VDC at the batteries when plugged into shore power. If you don't, the converter may be suspect or you might have tripped a shortstop breaker near the batteries due to low voltage and a high amperage spike and that may need to be reset or replaced. You can easily check it with a meter. Once you get the voltage situation resolved (if needed) I think we can reset the system and it will work fine. I have a repair shop and have been here on this site over 7 years and see this issue all the time. Rarely, is it a problem with the motor or controls.
See the attached photo link of what a shortstop breaker looks like. The black button on the end has to be pushed in to reset one. Usually two or more connected by a copper strip right behind the batteries area on the bulkhead. https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=shortstop+breaker+photo&view=detailv2&&id=8D4939A7F0965679E3E29C89B963B0D9C24CDC15&selectedIndex=2&ccid=BqT81%2fi2&simid=608020010087614920&thid=OIP.M06a4fcd7f8b6b27384bb458894096d30o0
What does the screen show? Any error codes flashing?
It might be a pump or control pad issue, but only some testing can tell you that. You might have to have a mobiule tech come and assist you. Sorry I can't really give you much more here.
