bed room slide intermittent

the bedroom slide has refused to move several times. I have tried pushing on it I have checked for obstructions. tried checkecking voltage at the motor at both in and out. all have checked good and all of a sudded it works. happens aain . go through above and it works again. have looked at the realays and tapped them as I can here the click. don't know what motor I have as I cant find a picture of it they say it my be a Rbv but cant find any thing that look lie it. also if it does quit how do I get it in as I have found no manule way to bring it in and if if has a brake no way to release the brake This is a closet slide in the bedroom and is accesed under the bed. the motor asseably looks like nothing I see on the web so far. Motor is self contianed above the square shaft. there are no visable releases or grease or screws.

I am not familiar with your particular setup but, one thing could be a dead spot in the motor armature. The next time it happens try taking a wrench and turning the square shaft a quarter turn, which should move the armature a little. Then try the switch again. If that solves the problem then it is your motor. If you have checked voltages while activating the switch at the motor, that would rule out all electrical up to the motor. You should be manually able to retract the slide by turning that square shaft which is what the motor does. It will take awhile but it can be done.
