warn winch problem

well i went to use my winch for the first time in about 4 weeks and when i push the in button nothing happens, and when i push the out button it comes in. winch has worked great for the past year and a half. im thinking its the relay box crapped out but looking for ideas.

also i tried the remote and the dash rocker and neither would work correctly

Sounds like your contactor went out (relay box), Warn had a problem with these a few years ago, they had a recall and replaced most.

Is it possible you bought a Winch thats been on the shelf awhile? You should disconnect the power to the contactor, if I remember right there was a possibility of a short causing a fire.

This may not be your problem at all, but I thought I'd let you know of the recall, replacement of contactors.

And if it did break you could buy another contactor and still be out less money than the warn!! LOL

i really like milemarker winches..i had nothing but excellent service out of my pe4500 i had on my arctic cat prowler 650...i had to modify the mounting brackets to use it but after i got it mounted i was completly happy with it.it was twice as powerful as a warn 3000 i had on the same unit.and i never had a contactor problem.i just wish there was enough room to install it on my teryx.the pe4500 is larger than a regular atv winch.

We have sold about 20 to 30 of those Viper winches since we started selling them in Dec and no issues yet.
