Default Power trim?

Mine goes up, don't come down. If it stays more than 4 hours do I call DR.? Swapped the relays and took out the nut and dumped fluid everywhere. Still sticking straight up. Do I get bigger prop and Play air boat, or is there a easy fix? It's a 96 merc EFI.

Any one run into this issue?

sounds like either a welded (closed ) contact of the raise relay or a short across a contact in the trim raise circuit ( throttle handle trim switch, bow trim switch, outboard mounted trim switch)

Is the trim motor running when you close the switch for down or is there no response at all? If no response use a meter. Determine where the open point is in the circuit. find the last place you have 24v to ground, starting from source working to trim motor.
