We have a quick windlass
and associated support.
The other day we hit the button at the helm
to drop the anchor
and nothing happened. We can get it up but it won't drop. There is a clicking sound inside a black box that is before the windlass motor
. This black box has the wiring
to the motor
and then feeds back to the breaker.
I have taken off all three 12 v wires to the black box and cleaned them. When I was having a frustrated play with it when it first occurred after many attempts it did raise it once but never again. I have swapped over the up and down cables
and checked it and it will then drop it but not raise it.
Would live to hear of a solution to this one.
More details if you need them.
