Kwikee Steps - Motor vs. Controller

I did a search, couldn't really get a clear answer.

I just replaced my gear drive part of my steps due to them stopping working, and they had a broken piece inside of the gear.

Now, all hooked back up, and it's the same behavior. I'm thinking that it broke the gear at some point.

Here's the symptoms, trying to figure out if it's a controller or motor now.

The motor will operate from the controller, and will go in reverse if I switch leads.

However, when everything is hooked up, the stairs sort of go into a SPASM mode, and it seems like the motor can't do anything. It also will not hold the steps in position.

Do you think this is a controller issue, or perhaps the motor is bad? I can get the Taurus Motor for $30.

Thanks in advance!

Actually, I think I figured it out. I hooked up the system without the controller, motor direct to 12v, and it did the exact same thing. I know it's not gears, so I'm suspecting motor. Ordering one, so we'll see if it does the trick.
