Are they retracting smoothly or jerking? There are some cheap (to buy) plastic gear slugs inside that may be the problem. There are a couple threads on how-to available. give us more info

Have you tried the Simple Stuff First aproach? That would be to get out your can of favorite spray lube and give all the joints a shot. (All RV'ers have a Favorite brand of spray lube that works wonders)

Sounds like the plastic gears have stripped. Had that problem on an Allegro that we has in the past.

Sorry we lost the internet. We are at the Grand Canyon. Steps retracting smoothly. When steps are all the way in it makes a bang bang bang inside coach then stops. Brand name is LCI. It says no lubication required.

Steps won't full cycle

You can take a look at the link above. Mine stripped the plastic gears and would not retract all the way. Not familiar with LCI but I would guess they are all pretty simillar. The Kwikee brand operates through a controller that senses load and stops the motor at full up, down, or if they hit say a curb on the way down. It sounds like when picking the steps up it is slipping the gears before motor sees enough load to kill the power. Read through the attached, more help will show up soon I'm sure. If it does fail it will fail down so plan on having a ratchet strap or something strong to tie it in the up position and disconnect the power to the motor.

first things first is to check, clean and lube all the pivots in the system. they might say no lubrication needed, but they are not laying under the coach and those pivots are.

Spray em with your favorite Juice" while laying under there while someone else opens and closes the door.
Repeat until the steps work smoothly.

The steps are brand name coach step, model number LCI 128980 year 05/24/01. I sprayed last night and this morning with liquid wrench silicone spray. It helped the turn buckle. But the turn buckle is bent about a 1/4 inch. There is also a purple wire about 5 inches long coming off the control module. I can not see where it could hook up.
