    sometimes i can restart the winch by inserting the winch handle, turning a few cranks, removing the handle and pressing the button again. the winch is activated by pushing one of two start buttons - fast or slow.

    Intermittent spark on a 9.9 horse power

    Make sure the coil on the magneto is close to the magnet on the flywheel. Loosen the coil and move it closer to the flywheel, I have used an old matchbook to set the clearance before and that worked well.

    GP Furuno 7000 sounder not powering up

    Be sure to check your input DC voltage all the way to the unit itself. The intermittent condition you described sounds like a bad connection outside of the unit itself. Once you confirm that you have good 12 or 24vdc input to the plotter and it still won't power on, there is an internal 4amp fuse you can check. Proceed with caution if you decide to open the unit yourself.

    I have to manually turn the prop. to get the Minn Kota electric motor to work. Once it gets going it works fine. What is the cause?

    I have an all terrain 70 that would not work intermittently. I disassembled the motor and discovered that the brushes wer hung in the brush housing. The housing is clean and the brushes are in great shape. It appeared that the geometry of the brush spring is just right to make it hang at that prticular position. I freed the spring and could not recreate the problem. Reassembled with new gaskets and seals and all is good.

    1. possibly a broken connection to the motor where the propeller is located. 2. Also could be a bad motor. 3. Look for a fuse location for a possible blown fuse to the motor. 4. motor brushes could be the problem.

    RT80A/P Intermittant Power

    This could be two things, or three perhaps.

    check the seals around the prop as water may be entering the unit. The motor might be seizing with heat. Not sure if it is a brushless motor, but next time it stalls, tap the motor head with a rubber mallet as it may re-seat the brushes if the motor has them.

    After 4 years, salt water and storage, it will be overdue for a proper service.

    Unit will not pull up the anchor

    First, put a volt meter across the winch's power terminals to verify that the voltage is not dropping several volts when comanded to run, indicating a bad cable connection somewhere. Anchor winch's pull alot of current from a battery.
    For a test, use car jumper cables from a good battery to the winch to see if it runs better.

    Motor operates in horizontal position only

    Take the top cover off and check for a wiring problem. You may have one that is loose and isn't
    making connection when motor is in the water. I'd guess it is your red (hot) wire).
