Hey Paul, have a look at this page, under the "product review"

"The unit provides good torque to handle sail sheeting - but it
is 3 revolutions (takes in a lot of string) and unfortunately
VERY slow compared to equal torque arm winches that are much
faster. Highly recommended for anyone need a lot of mainsail
boom movement, just allow time for the servo to make its turns."

Sounds like you bought a sail winch. Sounds like the "continuous
rotation" really means "3 revolutions". That would fit your
description of observed operation.
