You are going to have to give a lot more information...

How is the loader plumbed in, does it have its own valve block? What model tractor is it on? Is the linkage that controls the loader working correctly?

Some photos showing the system would be a starting point.

It’s on a 1212
It’s controlled by the valve block in the picture it has worked fine up and down at low level but when raised higher it would not drop it has been left for 24 hrs and hasn’t dropped overnight

I won’t stand under it !

Id be tempted to loosen the hydraulic connections for the lift rams and see if the loader started to drop. Do it at the control valve end so you are clear of the loader.

If the loader starts to drop then your problem lies with the control valve or return pipework beneath the valve.

If the loader stays put then youve got a damaged/sticking ram or some serious mechanical jamming on the loader.

Just keep clear of the loader whilst its up in the air!!

I slackened the pipes at the rams and the loader slowly dropped down. It will go up but not down using the controls I think it maybe a problem with the valve block. Will take it off and get it checked over with a hydraulic specialist.
