Can you tell if the valve is opening when you activate the button on the joystick? Maybe it is stuck in the up position. As Grumpie pointed out, we have had issues with the knob positions inside the cab on the wall. Play with them. I can't remember but I know we have fought with them. We have a 3 pt hitch on either end so there are 2 sets. I know if the arms are in a fully up position, it keeps the button from lifting higher. We have added a coupler off the valve block located along the chassis wall at back and put in a ball valve to turn off the circuit/lock out the 3 pt. hitch. We use the 3 point hitch hydraulics to raise and lower the apron of the rock picker. It has been very handy as you can control that with your thumb and move the tractor back and forward at the same time with that hand.
I know we can't have the 3 point hitch fully up and then lock it with the ball valve. It has to be just slightly down from the fully raised position in order for us to use the circuit for the rock picker. I am not sure if there is a pot alongside one of the rams or exactly what that creates this nonfunctioning issue. We are using the front 3 pt. hitch circuit. I don't know if that helps you fwiw.
