Permanent magnet winch motor and contactor problem

501 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  11b4v
I've got an older, permanent magnet winch motor (MileMark 9k) and recently burned up the solenoids accidentally while doing engine work.

I picked up a 12v, permanent magnet motor contactor, hooked it up per instructions/google wiring diagrams, and all I get is clicking, but no motor movement. I can power the motor directly with jumper cables and it works fine.

I've to 21ft. of 1 ga. from the rv/marine battery to the contactor, and 4ft. of 0 ga from the contactor to the winch. I'm using a Warn three wire remote.

Here's my style contactor/solenoid and wiring diagram/setup used.

What am I missing/doing wrong?

Thanks in advance for your help, comments and replies.

If that is exactly the sol your using it looks pretty small even for the albright style.

What amp is your sol rated for?
it's rated for 150 amps.

I initially used an Albright, but had the same result; clicking and no motor activation.
