Barient/Honeywell electric winch

I have a Brewer 12.8 sloop/cutter. It has Barient 36 or 38 2speed self tailing electric winches. The starboard one stopped working (on both speeds). Anyone out there give any guidance??? (help please)

Re: Barient/Honeywell electric winch

Typically, knowing what winch it is helps. Especially since there are lots of Barient 36 variants out there. 2-speed, & 3-speed, let alone powered.

There are some manuals for Barients on, & the C&C owners website as well as online in general.

When were yours last serviced, & what were this one's symptoms before it "died"? Also, what have you tried diagnostically?

Re: Barient/Honeywell electric winch

Thank You Mr uncivilized. It just stopped working. Checked the wiring and there is 12 volts present at the 3 solenoids on bottom of motor. I have the data sheets to overhaul the winch itself. I suspect that the problem may be in the Honeywell 12 volt motor as it is vintage 1984--plus both speeds quit at the same time. I'm wondering if a auto starter repair shop could fix it as its dealing with similar things like brushes, solenoids, armatures etc. Have you ever heard of these units ? they do work nicely.
