Hi, My name is***** will be glad to help. We can follow up as needed on here. Professionals are not employees of the site but users of the site and help on here as time allows depending on their daily schedule.

Boom Release

CAUTION: Prevent possible injury from unexpected boom movement. Never exit machine with boom raised unless boom is resting on boom lock. Boom release mechanism is to be used when boom is in a partially raised position and engine is stopped and will not start.

Manual Controls

1. Close cab door, if equipped. 2. Fasten seat belt. 3. Lower interlocking seat bar. 4. Remove wing screw (1) from cover in lower left corner of cab. Remove cover. 5. Turn key switch to RUN position. Do not start engine. 6. Cycle park brake to middle position. 7. Pull up handle (2) and hold. 8. Actuate boom function: • For Hand and Foot Machine—press down on front of left pedal. • For Hands Only Machine—pivot left control lever towards operator. 9. Lower boom.

EH Controls

1. Close cab door, if equipped. 2. Fasten seat belt. 3. Lower interlocking seat bar. 4. Turn key switch to RUN position. Do not start engine.5. Cycle park brake to middle position. 6. Actuate boom function by moving right joystick forward. 7. Lower boom. If boom does not lower, see your authorized dealer.

If your cable is stuck, I recommend that it be disconnected on the control valve side and you manually shift the valve at the valve and where the cable connects.

I hope you find this information helpful. Reply back with the results of these checks if any further help is needed. It is a pleasure to help anyway I can.

Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago
Sir. That is why at the end of my post I said this, If your cable is stuck, I recommend that it be disconnected on the control valve side and you manually shift the valve at the valve and where the cable connects.

Well I still can't get it got the cable to move about 1/8 of a inch think I'll call John Deere up tomorrow to come fix it
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago
If the cable is seized you are going to have to replace the cable. I completely understand if it is out of your comfort zone and prefer to have the dealer take over.

The cable isn't seized it's the block
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 1 year ago
Thank you for the update. So you have confirmed that the problem is internal within the block. If that is the case then I agree that it is probably best to let the dealership take over on disassembling that valve block.
