You could actually get an answer that will work
for you, but I doubt it. You did not give any of us experts enough information.
- Windlass Model?
- Does it have a windlass control box?
- How many wires go to the windlass motor?
- Are you using a remote?
- Have you eliminated a problem with the remote?
- Etc, etc.
I hope you understand that there are lots of people here willing to tell you what they know based on their experience, and there are some just willing to tell you what they know.
Be a little more specific and you might get lucky. For instance I have a Lofrans
Tigres 1200 24 volt. It has a control box
which houses 2 solenoids. Once I had the exact same problem as yours. When I opened the control box a half moon shaped piece of plastic about 1/4" in diameter fell out. It had wedged itself between the contact points. Both solenoids worked, the control box worked, the remote worked, but that darn piece of plastic got between the contact points.
