Maybe a burnt out contact? It may also do that if it doesn't get enough power. And Phil, you know better then to use a winch when drinking.

when we took it off the mount there was a screw missing from one of the "bars" that holds the sides together. the current hypothesis is that when it got ina bind the body of the winch would flex not letting gears mesh well. will get a screw tomorrow and see what happens. its a 2500lb warn on a aYamaha big bear. its quite a beast.

Follow-up Post:

o yeah could you elaborate on the contact thing?

The electrical contacts that switch the power on and off, they don't go very often but it was just a guess. But if it has been under water then that increases the chance of burning or corroding the contacts.
