Hydraulic Jack stuck half way up.

The front jack on my 2005 HR SCEPTER goes down with no issue, but when raising, it goes up only half way. If I use a floor jack and raise it up a few inches it will then return as normal. I cleaned the shaft, but still have the issue, any suggestions as a fix.
The rear jacks work as normal.

Check to see if the piston is bent or the cylinder is dented, midway.
Check the piston, by running it all the way out and put a straight edge against it.

Good luck

A 2005 should have had the fluid changed out by now.
If they are Power Gear use Mercon V.

Thanks for checking, No the jack only goes up half way, I need a floor jack to move it up another 3 inches than goes all the way up by itself, no issues going down. I cleaned the shaft and sprayed with WD 40, fluid is ok ,it,s a puzzle.

Hey Rj, if you haven't fixed the problem yet it may be worth your time to call RVA. I called them and was very impressed with the knowledge and help I received from the man I talked to.

I went on the power gear sight and found lots of info - I also posteda question to the service dept and had answer the next day. I have one clyinder that goes almost all the way up - lacks abour3/4 inch- they had me grease it several times and silicone the shaft. Still lacks a little from complete retract but living with it for now.
