does it work in one direction only or is it dead in both directions?
maybe the brushes are stuck, being used it could have gotten water in there and jacked everything up. try tapping on the motor housing with a hammer (i said tapping, not swinging on it like a monkey!) while holding the remote in 'spool in control', see if it starts working at all.

clean and secure all of the large wire connections and the link bars.
winchs can be funny that way. when i first put mine on i wound it all up at my house, the first time i go to pull its completely dead and i have all my cable stretched, get home and cleaned it all up and it worked fine.
Impeach or revolt, which will it be?
