Default Windlass problems. Will drop but not lift

My windlass has been acting up lately. It will drop the anchor down but it wont raise it up. But then after 5min of waiting for it it will start pulling it up until you let go of the switch, then it wont work for another few mins. Seems that I have a bad connection or breaker tripping somewhere. any help would be great!

Had the same problem with a SL Sprint 600. I opened it up and it was a sheared compound gear assembly. Replaced and works like a champ.
