Slide not Working

Yesterday, needed to put the bedroom slide(closet) in to do some work in the storage bay under it. Turned the key to activate the switch and all I got was the sound of the motor running and the alarm sounding. The slide did not move, tried the switch to out and the same thing. Went outside and pushed on it while the wife was turning the switch and it didn't move. Got up this morning and it was in about 2 inches on one side and still full out on other side. Any ideas, can't really see under the slide from outside, thinking the box in the closet must be covering the mechanism. Looked for the place to put the crank and see if I can crank it in, but don't really see a place for that either. Help, any ideas?

If the motor is running but the slide doesn't move, odds are you have broken the shear pin that connects the motor shaft to the drive gear.

Ok, after crawling under and all over, looking under the bed, and finally in a very small storage bin I found the gear drive. Gary, you were correct, I manage to align the holes and get the broken piece out. I drive the remaining partially out, tested the slide and it now works. Am going to town in a little while to find a replacement pin and put it in and drive it thru and knock the old one out. I also found the motor has a switch on it that
will disconnect the motor from the shaft so the slide can be manually moved. Man, I wish I knew where to find the manufacturer info on my slides so I could order a owners manual.
