Windlass stopped working

Recommended Posts

Would anyone have any good suggestions on where to begin the search if the windlass has stopped working on a Signature Series 290? It began with the down not working from the button on the bow. Eventually the up stopped working from there also. It still worked both ways from the switch on the dash panel. Then it totally stopped working from the dash switch also. Thank you for any advice.

I would check the contactor. That is where all the control wires meet (in most cases but not all) and it sound like the problem area.  Since the controls failed almost one after the other.  Corrosion?

There is a guy in Jacksonville Florida, Charles Perry..do a google search.

He repairs these and has a quick turnaround time.

I sent mine to him and got it back in 3 days...and his charges were reasonable
