Milky Hydraulic Fluid

Milky hydraulic fluid indicates that there is water in the fluid which should be cleaned out. Some steps that can be taken:

1) flush all hydraulic fluid and replace with new fluid 2) add a water filter or desiccator to the hydraulic system


1) Condensation on the inside of the hydraulic tank

Solenoid stuck

Possible problems:

1) broken solenoid - measuring the ohms across the solenoid terminals should be between 0 and a few hundred ohms. Any more indicates a blown coil in the solenoid. 2) silt lock - particulates have jammed one of the solenoids or cylinders. 3) physical jam - something is blocking the movement of the cylinder. In the case if the secondary cylinder, it could be something that got stuck in the chamber. The chamber could be bent causing the primary cylinder foot to get jammed.
