winch won\'t freespool

I got stuck today, flipped the lever on the winch, pulled out the cable and hooked it up, flipped the lever back. When I was done reeling the winch back in I tried to put it back into freespool and it wouldn't go. I reeled the cable out to take the pressure of the winch. The lever was stuck. It will still move in and out using the motor.
The winch is a warn HS9500i
Anybody have any advice?

Re: winch won\'t freespool

My xd9000i did that so I took it apart and it was just full of mud. So I cleaned it all out and relubed it with graphite grease and it worked fine.
