We have three Antal 52XP electric
winches with the horizontal motor
mount. They have worked really well up until this last week.
developed a louder whining sound.
- Trips breaker even under no load.
- Manual winch
with handle works fine with no binding.
- The horizontal motor seems to be at a slight angle - at first I thought it was lose? But itís been like this since install - and has always worked great!
- I pulled the drum off and disassembled the upper portion of the winch
- then ran the motor - still trips the breaker and makes the loud whining sound
What gives? Itís as if there is some restriction either in the motor, or the mount.
