Warn 4 Post Contactor Repair
Went to install my el-cheapo champion winch today, previous owner left all warn wiring so it was a simple install. Went to test the winch and only one side of the rocker switch worked.
I took apart the contactor and was able to repair it, figured i'd post in case it can help somebody else.
Removed and disassembled the contactor, after splitting it the top half looked fine, nice and clean, no abnormal wear/dirt. To get the bottom half apart, i removed the 3 small phillips screws and then had to cut the zip tie holding in wires coming into the case, giving them slack so i could pull it through. After pulling the plate and small circuit board out i immediatley found the issue. There are 2 wires coming in from the rocker switch, connected to the coils via a small circuit board with 4 small white wires going into the coil directly. One of those white wires had broken off at the board. Luckily there was enough wire left to just resolder and re-assemble, tested it out and it works perfect. Sorry for the lack of pics, I was too lazy to get my camera.
