Hi. I got a problem on my M 8ooo. I only can feed the Cable and not pull it in.
So the winch worked properly until now. The winch is not full of Mud or anything else. I can also hear no Click from the solenoids when i try to pull the cable in. I have teste the controller. It is working fine. The motor should be OK,
because he´s turning in one direction. I think the solenoids are working also.
There is a little circuit board in the control box. Does anybody had problems with this board? Any help would be fine.
I think the problem is the circuit board. Because there is no power at the two solenoids ,for to feed the cable.
And this little circuit board switches the power between cable in and out. Right ? We have only one general Warn Dealer in Germany. so it is not easy, and cheap to get Help from them.
I try to get some help from Warn USA. But if anybody has another idea, any help is apreciated.
Sounds like you've got it narrowed down. If the solenoids aren't receiving any power, then the problem must lie a little further up the line of components. I would give Warn a call and see what they say about the issue. I'm sure they can help you figure out what's wrong. We had a M12000 on my Dad's truck and it would only spool out. It was something wrong with the motor. Everything else was fine and Warn ended up replacing the motor for us free.
There are four solenoids, two for 'in' and two for 'out'. I would begin by disconnecting the battery's negative cable and then insuring all the cables and wiring connections are tight where they connect to the solenoid. If all connections are tight, odds are that one of the two 'in' solenoids is bad.
