Check that the screws are tightened up as sometimes they work loose and this can cause the noisy grating sound.Other than that its a strip down and check all the cogs for damage.

Reasonably common, usually happens when someone tries to winch in a heavy weight (fish/weed or when snagged) rather than pumping it in.
