Contact the maker for assistance. Barker is replacing or repairing noisy jacks. Smoking is a bad sign!

Usually once you let the magic smoke out, the device is damaged beyond repair.

Maybe a manual crank would be best for your application ??

Not the magic smoke escape again!

Time for a new magic smoke sealed unit.

My Husky Jack has kept its smoke, none has escaped.
