2000 electric slide problem

I got a call from Gary Smith who has a problem of his electric slide shearing pins on the front pinion gear. Guaranty has replaced the rollers and lubricated everything. Keeps happening. Got any help for him?

Interesting that pinion gear pin shears. Most of the alpine electric slides I have seen, including mine, barely have enough power to get the slide in and out...much less shear the pin. Perhaps Gary can post more information on this topic, detailing the circumstances and details about what is happening.

My 2001 Alpine uses 1/4 20 grade 8 bolt as the shear pin. If I were having problems I would drill out the hole and install 3/16 grade 8 bolt. This should stop the shearing since the rollers were replaced because the larger bolt will a much higher rating.

I also assist the slide by pushing the top of the slide when moving it out. I do this because I had drawers installed and we now put more clothes in the slide, which made the slide heavier.
