256 hatch cant open breaker issue HELP

4 posts in this topic

OK my hatch was sporadic at the end of the season  now it wont open at all, problem is I have tall risers and no way can I get my hand in there to pull the pin out what other options do I have?  I tried a metal bar thru the front inspection hatch it pulled the pin but not all the way out. 

As for the switch it lights up and has power put something keeps popping the circuit  breaker.  Is there a way to open it from the helm switch if I jump power, the switch has 8 spades on it so I don't even know where to begin.

Usually a popping breaker is a symptom of a bigger electrical problem. Keep fishing till you pull that pin all the way out.

OK well it was not easy but I got the pin.  I remove the outer ring of the inspection hatch every inch counts, reached in with a pair of vice grips while my daughter looked thru the front port and was able to guide me to lock on the pin.  Then pulled it out.  

Hooked up some test leads to the lift motor ran fine so it must be the switch.
