Anyone had this happen or know of a fix?

Yesterday I went to use my winch... first I moved the lever to free-spool and pulled out the line I needed to hookup. Then I moved the lever back to engage. Everything seemed normal except when I power the motor, I can hear it turning and the drum does not move. I can move the drum by hand regardless of the free-spool lever position.

Seems like the motor is doing its thing, but the gears are not engaged even though the lever is in the correct position.

Disconnect power or tap it with a dead blow hammer? Seems like something is stuck or needs to be reset to me. That or the lever itself is broken.

I was going to say smack it with something to see if the guts are stuck. May just need a disassembly/cleaning/reassembly. Worth a call to Warn probably.
