You might have an air lock in your hydraulic line. I would bleed the air from each and every one of your levelers

The LCI system is self bleeding. I actually had a line break also, replaced it, but everything worked fine after that. They retract by hydraulics, and if the motor is running and nothing happens, make sure you don't have any leaks. There is a procedure in the manual to manually retract the jacks, give that a try and get back with us.

Thank you for all the responses, the motor does run I think I went up to far on manual and just curious is there a lock position or do you think I should physically go to the reservoir and release the pressure.

On the LCI system, you can retract the jacks by using a battery operated drill with a 1/2 socket attached and a 5/32 hex wrench (the L shaped tool that comes in a set). Go to your LCI manual and reference the section on manually retracting each jack.

In a nutshell, you have to pull the power lead on the solenoid, turn each individual jack valve clockwise with the 5/32 hex tool, using the handheld drill with 1/2 socket in reverse to power up the jack (uncover the attach point on the end of the pump, usually covered up with a round plastic or rubber cover). Then, you close the valve by moving it counter-clockwise, then repeat for the other jacks. The front two valves facing you are probably for the front jacks, the rear valves are for the rear jacks (and somewhat difficult to access).

Once you learn how to do this, you will be much more confident the next time your jacks fail in the down position! I have had to do this two times so far.

Featured snippet from the web
With engine running you might try emergency retract by disengaging parking brake. Or with engine running press ON and then press all 4 leveler buttons at the same time to reset the system. Turn system OFF then ON and try RETRACT ALL.

If the jacks are fully retracted, then the level in the tank should be within 1 inch of the opening.

Do the jacks still go down further? Had an issue like this on my rig. Jack motor was running, but jacks not moving. Got out a voltmeter and traced the issue back to a bad reversing solenoid. Below is an example of what to look for-

Take the time to root cause the issue and not just throw parts at it.
