Well I scored a good deal on a winch my uncle put his jeep for sale and sold me the winch off of it for 150 dollars it's one of the 8000 pound harbor freight ones.has always worked good but you can't winch out you have to freespool it does this mean a solenoid went bad or something else.

It could be the solenoid, in the switch, or a gear not engaging. I tore into a Warn 9000 to find it full of water. It wasnt that bad of a job if you keep it organized. If you have a volt meter you can trouble shoot the solenoid.
