    I guess the thinking on this is that it might be starting up under load, in fact it will be the opposite way round, hydraulic load is applied when the solenoid is energised. You could try turning the flywheel by hand, it should turn freely, the hydraulic oil should circulate through the valve back to the tank so and you may be able to see the oil circulating. If it does not look to see if the ram is moving. Make sure you turn it the same direction the motor turns, maybe the valve is sticking.

    Do you have a written valid warranty, not for China you don't, they will replace parts if they are faulty, and in most cases you have to return the faulty parts at your cost

    That's one thing out the way, it's good that you had the oil in, the wiring is your next problem, this needs to be corrected, it's not safe they way it is wired

    Is it rotating the correct way, do they have an arrow anywhere to indicate the correct rotation in the video it is under load and it should not be under load at start up, they ask you to remove the solenoid, this is a good idea, as it could be shut when it should be open, this is a good test

    This would indicate wiring or a bad valve /solenoid, so you should do what they are asking

    I can't tell which way it is spinning in the video, but looks like it is clockwise,

    It is a similar hydraulic unit I just installed from China, and It needed to spin anti-clockwise
