My LA 301 FEL suddenly stopped going up and down but dump works. Seems the hydraulic piston is frozen down. I have not switched hydraulics yet

Take the quick connects loose from the control valve for the two boom hoses. Remove them and re-install, do not go by what they look like. I think one has slipped back far enough that he check valve is not open. This stops fluid flow in and out of the cylinders.
