I have a Zen-noh 1802 and the lift has stopped working. The lift on this tractor doesn't work like a conventional 3 point, it is electric over hydraulic. It has 2 solenoids on top of the valve for the lift. Is anyone familiar with this type arrangement?

Welcome to GTT. Someone that knows will be along in awhile. Some pics of the setup will probably help. As a general rule, most electical problems are a bad connection(often the ground). Good Luck, Rick

Welcome to GTTalk.
Hopefully a knowledgeable member will be able to answer your questions.
Pictures of the unit and the solenoids may help them help you.

I have an old electric winch that is set up with 2 relays to reverse direction.  Relays went bad it was tossed.  Replaced the relays with Radio Shack relays and has worked for about 5 years that way.  Power trim & tilt on the older marine out drives used a similar set up, electric over hydraulic.  Your problem is probably just a relay not making contact.

I'll chime in too.

 

I've also got a winch with the 2 relay set up.  Yours should be the same except it's working a pump motor rather than a winch motor.

 

The Chinese relays in it only last about a year of light use.  I haven't been able to find a quality replacement.

The last ones I bought was RS, probably Chinese all right.  After a couple years I have to smack one once in a while.  Check with  www.allelectronics.com  They may have one.  I haven't look yet.

I've always replaced those type solenoids with one from an older Ford starter

Here is a good reversing relay if that is what you need.

Do you have to change the motor rotation?

Found the problem. It had a loose connection on one of the pin connectors.
