TESTING A WINCH MOTOR

3 POST WINCH MOTOR

Put the winch in freespool.

Disconnect the positive lead from the battery (leave the ground lead attached).

Label and disconnect the three cables that run from the control pack to the three terminals on the motor.

Stamped next to the three posts on the motor will be “A”, “F1” and “F2”. Run a small jumper wire from “A” to “F1” and put power from the battery (jumper leads are handy to use) to “F2”. The winch motor should run in one direction when power is applied to the “F2” terminal.

Next swap the jumper wire from “A” to “F2” and put power from the battery to terminal “F1”. The winch motor should run in the opposite direction when power is applied to the “F1” terminal.
