When the gear goes all the way up, all three of the gear up switches in the wheel wells have to close. This does two things, it applies power to the door open/close solenoid (which controls flow to open or close the doors) to move the solenoid to the door closed position. When all three switches are closed, power can flow from the bus to the handle and then on to the gear up light
"As soon as the landing gear is locked into the UP position, the landing gear up limit switches sequence the door solenoid valve to the door close position. This directs fluid under pressure to open the door lock valve and flow to the pressure switch. When pressure in the door-close line reaches 1500 psig, the pressure switch shuts off the motor and the gear up cycle is complete."
Everything points to a landing gear up switch not closing. I would start by adjusting the nose gear up switch.
Do you still have the nose gear doors on your 210??

Hi Steve,
Seems that it was the Throttle Switch that had failed. I get a good test during preflight while pushing the Green light in to test the horn and it doesnt sound on takeoff anymore.
I do now have another issue...when it rains it pours.
We recently replaced the Nosewheel Uplock actuator. It was determined to be bad when on jacks with just hand pressure the nose gear could be stopped midway down with very little pressure.
After that was changed and 7 successful cycles of the gear on routine flights.....now on gear retraction the pump is not shutting off and i am not getting a yellow light..
It is only when the gear is coming up..the pressure switch is shutting the pump off and am getting a green light when putting the gear down.
What are your thoughts on this? It is going back on jacks in the morning for troulbeshooting.
Thanks in advance for any input.

Hello
Thanks for your reply.
I will probably increase a bit my budget. as I really like the 185.
Is there many difference between 185 and 182 except the number of seats ?
Have a good day

Alain
