Genie GS3268

Hello... I'm new to the forums and am hoping someone here is familiar with Genie lifts. I am working on a gas powered 4x4 lift. Two of the wheels are not driving. I have checked the main pump, some of the solenoid valves, electrical all seems good, have had the drive motors apart...seem ok. Have done the pressure tests on the two test ports one is fine the other is low, but can't figure out why. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply... so if a motor was bad, would it not pass oil with little resistance, similar to a wheel spinning? Then the valve should divert oil to other wheels? In the service manual, the motors are connected in diagonal pairs, but could still be connected together in the manifold via proportioning valves like you mentioned.

Yes they may appear that way but the way the control manifold deals with them is that if one wheel motor looses traction it senses this and the valves divert fluid away from that motor to the other ones so it will still pull. If you are loosing one side (or one pair) then there has to be either a bad motor or valve malfunctioning.

Thanks for the info...I'll give that a try. The wheels seen to be connected in pairs diagonally from each other. One pair is fine, the other is not.

the model is gs-3268 and the serial is: gs6805-43903

in order to give you more accurate information having a full model and serial number off of the data plate would be helpful.

with that said....

there should be a function manifold on the same side as the hydraulic resivoir. First i would get some fitting caps and plugs and remove each motor hoses and plug them off one at a time, this test is to see if one of the wheel motors is defective. Since this is 4x4 all motors are tied together in the manifold circuit and cannot be accurately tested while all are connected due to the equalizing circuit that redirects fluid according to demand on each wheel versus the terrain.

if a wheel motor is bad once you unhook it and block the circuit off the other wheels should return to normal mode and all should pull evenly.

if you find all wheel motors are ok then you will need to go back to manifold block and check counterbalance valves and check valves related to drive circuit.
