Question HELP-Warn Winch Problem

Just picked up a 2006 Rhino 450 with a Warn Winch(3000ci). Went to try it out and it reels in, but won't reel out? Any suggestions? I suck with electrical!

Could be a bad contact on the switch bad remote control unit, is the cable tangled up on the drum (that will cause it not to power out), if you disengage the gear set can you freely pull the cable out or does it bind up? Also, I believe that the winches have some sort of contacts on them that do go bad, I would contact WARN and ask them 1.800.543.9276, or Warn Industries - Main Home Page.

Yes it free spools fine when disengaged. I took the switch apart and it looks to be in good shape? I dunno?

I'm not very familiar with winch operations myself, but there's most likely something very simple wrong like a miswired plug or something WARN builds excellent winches, but still I would give them a call tomorrow and ask them.

That's what I figure too. Thanks.

No problem. Can't really think of a solution without actually seeing and messing with the winch.
