OK

IF you go to the pump/manifold you will see some solenoid valves, they will have wires going to them, on the end of the solenoid valves will be some T handles, OR a 1/4" nut, if you open them up about 5 to 6 turns it should take the pressure off the system and the jack should want to come up, you may have to assist it to get it to go all the way up, once the jack is up shut all the solenoids, you could have a bad solenoid valve not allowing the jack to come up. You could also loosen the line at the jack but the fluid is going to want to spray out everywhere so it is better to try it at the solenoid valve, run the jacks and listen for the pump/motor the solenoids will be on the manifold for the pump. You will have several as well, hard for me to say which one normally you can feel then as you try to retract them and they will click, you should have extend and retract solenoids...

Sorry the phone service did not go through, there is an added fee for that as well...

Let me know if you need more help on this..... Robert
