Winch Quit

I have a Smittybilt XRC 8K winch I used it about ten times. Yesterday i went to leave school and noticed someone had shifted it to freespool and pulled out about 5'. I plugged the remote in to reel it back up the remote lite up so the solenoid is getting power but i push the botton and get nothing. What can i do to fix it?
How can i prevent people from pulling the line out? My cousin had his pulled out wraped around a poll about 5 times and pad locked.
