the winch works, it just comes and goes.... the solenoids click and sometimes the winch will do nothing and other times it will hesitate for a second after the solenoids click and then slowly start to turn. the wires get extremely hot and they actually move like when you pressurize a garden hose. it probably just needs to be rebuilt, right now I dont have time to dink around with it. if it sint the solenoids then I'm replacing it. I have to use an M8000 or I have a lot of reworking to do.....

you can get the idea with this pic:

I havent thought about getting rid of the one on there just yet, if I do it'll be in the for sale section.

Mine was doing the exact same thing. Ended up replacing the motor from DB electronics for $100.00

Works like a champ, except my brake just failed, but who needs a winch brake anyways

I just got off the phone with warn customer service.... the girl was kinda bitchy when I asked why I HAVE to convert to a 5 wire system, she made it seem like a 5 wire was the only option if a 5 wire system is having problems....

I have a hunch its just my solenoids, I have some ordered and they should be here tomorrow. If they dont fix it I'll bend over and buy a new winch.

I just found my invoice, I paid $108.00 from them two months ago. Price of copper must be through the roof

Bolted up nicely, works great. You can't even tell the difference from that one compared to the old warn motor it replaced.

It should be nice shiny copper. Now take the case, pull the large torx head screws out of the case, they hold the magnets in. All four magnets come out at once, be careful, as you don't want to break any of the connections. Polish the inside of the case, and the outside of the magnets. There was some pretty serious corrosion on both of these surfaces.

Put it all back together and you should be good. The first time I had mine apart, I didn't pull the magnets out of the case, and it didn't work. Once I pulled it all the way down, it was perfect after that. Good luck, shoot me a PM if you have any questions.

I'm not sure about swapping solenoids, how hard is that job? it's probably pretty expensive huh? is he able to make service calls? I'm not sure about bringing the truck all the way out there. how much would he charge for swapping the solenoid out if he made the trip out here?

Thanks JohnnyJ, If the solenoids dont do it I'll probably try that.

You can build a suspension from Scratch, but can't tear apart a winch?


do you want me to come over and show you how to take a winch apart?

Maybe not, but I'm sure he's dipped the front end in water or a mud puddle here or there.. like up in Canada..

Quirky operation leads me to believe he may have some corrosion in there.
