Dave, there is a black box next to the motor when in the up position.  Open the box and clean the contacts.  And check that the micro switches are clean and workng.
Good luck. Richard and Joan on Challenge in Corse

Greetings all.
My bowthruster on SM#230 suddenly failed.. The bowthruster is in the
up position. Flipped the control panel switch to the 'on position' to
lower the motor unit, and the control panel red light indicator did
not come on, and the motor to lower the bowthruster did not operate.
Its as if there is no power getting to either the control panel or
lowering motor unit. I checked the circuit breaker on the 24volt
electrical panel and that is working properly. Wonder what to do next
to trouble shoot the problem. Any ideas?
