HI..

I have already responded to you twice on your original question. I will re post here....

This sounds like a faulty solenoid valve, if the solenoid valve was leaking it would do this, the jack could run up. The solenoids will be near the pump/manifold, each solenoid will have a set of wires going to it, you will have extend and retract solenoids. On the end of the solenoid would be a T handle OR 1/4 nut, make sure they are all tight, if one was opened some it would allow the jack to run up.

What you can try next is swap the solenoids, have someone run the jacks while you feel the solenoids, you will feel the solenoid click so then you can swap them and see if the problem goes to another jack OR when they are up if the jack starts to come down. IF you do try and swap the solenoids make sure you open all the 1/4 nuts on the solenoids (or T handles) for the leveling as you need to take the pressure off the system, open them about 5 turns.

Hope this helps really sounds like a solenoid...

IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me, IF you are satisfied with my efforts please feel free to select a rating, it is the only way I get credit for helping.... Robert
