3 point problems

chad I have a 5203 john deere and the 3 point is stuck in the up position, Any ideas
Bobby check this site:

Maybe adjusting the rate-of-drop will correct the problem

Benoit Landelle We had the same problem on a 2008 5525N...we did nothing as we do not use the 3 point often and we had a job to be done...1 week later the casting where the motorised arms of the 3 point connect to the tractor cracked really bad and the 3 point went higher, almost hitting the hydraulic quick the tractor is at the shop.

This is supposed to be a common problem with these small tractor, a hydraulic valve that limit the raise of the 3 point that is not working as it should, the dealer said. We spoke to a guy to whom it happened twice in the same year, not under warranty. He only paid the first time, 2500$ because the casting did not cracked. The dealer is charging us 5500$ for the fix AND WE ARE REALLY PISSED WITH JOHN DEERE NOW!!!

I saw that post while I'm looking for others that had this problem because we are getting the unit back today and we really don't want to pay that amount of money on something we do not even use (the 3 point that is)
