Anybody know where I can get a (warranty)replacement actuator locally? I would hate to miss a few weeks fishing waiting for one to be shipped. I can't run the boat with one not mounted.

If it's a Bennett, call 'em. If it's not a Bennett, it should be next time ... wink

Not sure, but might check Lighthouse Marine on Green Meadows.
Good Luck

If it's a Lenco are you sure it's not a broken sheer pin between the bottom of the acutator & blade. Sheer pin had it wedged in so it would not run up or down.

Had what I thought was a bad acutator, cut wires to by pass the switch. Purchased a new one on line, shipped over night, pulled old one off, jumped it straight to the battery & it worked. Still working.
Lenco sent me two free sheer pins to solve the problem.

Hope this helps ...... ICM

Followed Lenco troubleshooting guide online. Disconnected wire harness at the actuator. Put a 12 volt battery directly to wires and no movement, no humming. Wire connectors got warm quick.

Did the same exact testing, had the same results. Purchased replacement Actuator, after removing old Actuator from bracket, broken sheer pin from blade & before throwing it out. Ran leads to the battery & it worked down, reversed leads & it worked again up. Reinstalled & it's still working.

Not saying that you don't have a bad Actuator, mine seemed to be stuck somehow jammed by the broken sheer pin & wedged in place by the trailer bunks.
It worth a try, if your boats on a trailer the bunks maybe preventing it from running also. ....... ICM
