2017 cedar creek 35ik large slide not retracting

I️ have a 2017 cedar creek 35ik that Iíve only had for a month and the large hydraulic slide in kitchen will not retract. All slides hydraulics operate off of one switch and the other 2 slides operate. Hydraulic pump motor working and about 3Ēof hydraulic fluid in reservoir. Hydraulic level up works fine. Not sure how to get slide back in?

Hi,

Can you hear the pump running or not, when the slide has stopped coming in?

Several of us have had a perhaps similar problem, with the pump itself stopping completely. The fix for most of us has been to locate and reset a small, tiny black breaker button that (on Silverbacks at least) is on the rear wall of the front compartment, in a vertical buss bar looking assembly not far from the pump.

But if your pump is still running while the slide is dead, this is not your problem.

Good luck.

Call customer support at LCI 574 537 8900 they are very helpful, on my 33IK there are three black valve control knobs, close the ones you don’t want to move and make sure the one you want to move is in the open position. Good luck.

Hi,

My slide operate in a predictable manner -- lightest to heaviest, both in and out. Which has meant that my kitchen slide is always the last, and the one to kick my mini breaker.

For the original poster, I don't suppose you at any point turned one of the three black knobs in your access area, which serve as valves for the slide hydraulics. Closing one of them would kill the associated slide's operation. Unlikely, but thought I'd ask.

Thats my guess too. The OP has a selector valve closed.

The three slides work together with 1 pump and 1 switch for that pump, I️ have tried messing with the black knobs for for slide hydraulics but the one slide still will not come in. The other slides work ok.

Best of luck. I mean that. I spent 14 months with slides that decided when to work and mostly decided not to work, in OR out. It took replacement of 6 components, including pump, manifold, 2 rams, etc etc. to get it all working again.

My only suggestion is to go to the outside slide switch and turn it where at least ONE of the slides starts to move, either way. Stop, move it back. Go back and forth, back and forth, multiple times. Sooner or later, I bet all the slides will finally move.

Once in, mine did not STAY in, which was a much bigger problem!!!

Look under your slide for a chrome cylinder rod with a treaded end with large nuts. It is attached to a steel L bracket. Has the bracket broken?
