Lewmar Boating - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

I would check the wire leads off the windless to switch and from switch to battery (typically ground) During times of extreme load thoes thick wires heat up expand and contract and might loose a little contact or corrosion. Thoes windlesses are pretty bullet proof and very rarely have i seen one break. So I don't think its the winch itself. I would start there. Good luck Aloha

Check the brushes and if they are short just replace them.
This will solve the problem.
There is thermal cut out which will protect the winding if its hot and will stop windlass and after cooling down it can run again.

Pins are splayed on the end to keep them from coming out. Remove entire hinge or drill out pin and replace, remembering to peen the end again.

Need to strip it down and check the motor or any seized parts.

Also check that you have a return as well as a live feed. IIRC, there is one live and two returns, one for up and one for down.

Google the model number and the words 'parts schematic'.

specifically or in general? Now single system depth finders are pretty rare as you know have GPS and Fish Finder properties and also plotters that will automatically steer the boat to destination. I have a Humminbird 998 with Side Imaging and all in HD. Side Imaging gives a 3D image of the bottom structure and objects.

There is no fuse box, they use inline fuses. Chase the wiring back to the battery, somewhere near the battery or the radio/fish finder will be a fuse on the power wire.

Check for a loose connection or corrosion at the transducer and the unit. Less likely, but bent or broken pin on the connector at the back of the unit. It always works until it doesn't, so that information is of no use.
