Kwikee Model 32 steps

I have the model 32 Kwikee steps on my Monaco Crown Royal. I have notice of late that when the steps extend and retract the controller makes a clicking sound sorta like a relay clicking. I have done power check per the trouble shooting guide in the manual, and the steps seem to work fine most of the time, however they have had problem every now and again fully extending or retracting. Is this a controller problem? Thanks for the help.

When is the last time you lubricated the mechanism? Sounds like a lube issue.

Use a good spray lube (not WD40) at least twice per year. I have started using Boshiels T9 and found it is a good product for steps, locks etc.

Actually, steps are regularly lubricated, and I do not believe it is mechanical. I believe I have a possible control unit going bad. Has anyone else experienced this clicking when the steps retract and start clicking for a moment upon stopping. The same upon extending. Thanks, Bob
