Warn M8000 takes a crap!!
Well guys if you remember me asking all the winch questions a while back...its over. Got some new solenoids and figured that out, getting 12 volts at motor...nothing. Warn said if your getting power at the motor its shot. Took motor out cleaned it up real good with some contact cleaner,nothing. Warn wants $200 for a new motor, 4wheelparts $180, guess I'll go with the latter, cheaper than another winch. I've had it less than 2 years and its got maybe 20 pulls on it, half of those are pulling dead sows out of the barn and they don't weigh near as much as a jeep, ha! I figure I'll get the new motor, seal it up real good, mount the solenoid box up under the hood and get a cover for the winch...I'm figuring water killed my winch. Anybody else had problems with the M8000? I'm wondering if I paid $500 for the Warn name. [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]Aaron
