I have a 2011 all American that has a braun millennium wheelchair lift on it that wont fold. I have adjusted it per the manual for the lift and replaced the micro switch for the fold action. Still wont fold. I can get it to fold with a little pressure on the end of the lift if its fully extended but thats it. Any ideas??

We had one doing that, Ed told me how to adjust the fold relief pressure solved all the problems! Unless yours is on the electric side.

The fold relief is the correct direction to look.

The pressure relief valve needs to be adjusted. This is a safety feature which prevents the lift from folding while occuppied. You should be able to hold the lift back by pressing light weight on it with your hand (25-40) lbs and make it quit folding. Any more than that is too much. They need adjusting periodically.
