I need to order parts
quickly, 'cos I've got a crew member
joining me in Central America
in a few days.....so please help me to identify what, if anything, I need.
stopped dropping chain last night. It will still pull up, thankfully.
Here's what I've tested so far:
- reversed wiring
to hand-held wired controller. When reversed, it will drop anchor
, but not raise it.
- I found a corroded conductor joining the socket for the remote
. All cleaned up, no improvement or change.
- Visually examined solenoid connections - bone dry location, absolutely no sign of corrosion
- No 'clicking' sounds when I try to use it.
Does this mean:
- Solenoids are both ok, in that I guess one is devoted to DOWN, the other to UP ?
- Wired remote
is ok, as both switches work
What next? I think it looks like a wiring
fault, so I'll spend some time checking all of that out.
Appreciate any input!
