The pamphlet from Kwikee on their most common step series has a lot of electrical info but a bit slim on the gear box side.

Gentleman. I have ordered the external gear and should be here Monday. I have not removed the old one yet. So I don't know what the internal gear looks like. Now keep in mind what I have is "Frigette Coach Step? Not sure if they still make that brand anymore. But parts seem to be still available. On top of everything else, we are leaving Tue. on a trip with the coach so repairs won't be made to I return. Will take pictures and update you all when the deed is done.

My step gear motor failed at this point also. The "marbles" as you call are a common problem. I did a quick fix by replacing them with 1/4" nuts recommended by another poster. Worked great.

I know this is an old post, but I wanted to add my 2 cents. I had this same issue, motor kept running after steps retracted or extended, making a humming kind of noise. I thought it was a slipping gear in the gearbox. Replaced that, but still had the issue. After seeing this post, I tried to see if I could take apart the motor, but I didn't see how I could do it, so I just got a new motor. The new motor fixed the problem. After inspected the gears in my old gearbox and finding to issues, I returned the new gearbox, so with new motor and old gearbox, steps are working beautifully.

Thanks for the advice!
