Barker 3500 Power Jack

I Installed a Barker 3500 Power Jack on my trailer today and when I finished - NO UP OR DOWN! The night light works so I know I have a connection (actually I'm sure I have a good connection) but the up and down switch doesn't do anything. Of course I finished to late today to actually reach someone at Barker's so I left a message.

Anyone here have any Ideas?

John

You might stick the manual operation handle in it and see if the mechanism is free and moving properly, then try it again. Just be sure to take the handle out before hitting the switch.

That was my first diagnostic action, the manual handle worked fine.

does the switch make any noise? assuming it doesn't can you pull the switch out and check connections and switch function?

Maybe a wire has come loose is all I can think of. If you hit the up button, does it light dim? I would think if the motor was seized, it would pull some power and you could see it.

I have that same jack, but a few other of their products. I have always heard good things about Barker so hopefully they will take good care of you.

The switch only makes a click when pushed up or down but there is no hum nor does the light dim. Besides this jack having a 24" travel height I purchased it because of their reputation and several people here used this brand in their mods.

I just pulled the cap off the head and all the wires are connected. I don't have a multimeter as my old one died and my new one hasn't showed up yet.

John.

I just crossed the black and red wires and got nothing, then I did the black to orange and nothing again. I don't think the switch is bad, I think the motor is no good.

John

Red to orange did nothing also.

Well thats too bad. Barker does have a reputation as being good, but these things do happen. Did you buy it locally? Hopefully not too much of a pain to get it corrected.

Nope, had a credit on amazon so I used the credit to purchase from there.
