Bedroom slide

Hi everyone.
My bedroom slide with the bed won't open. I can hear the motor running, but no movement. I took the cover off, but the motor appears to be under the slide floor and access is impossible with the slide closed. I tried to push it open while my wife held the switch, but it didn't budge. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Thanks,
David Jarrard

I took the cover off, but with the slide closed, I can't reach the motor. I need to find a way to open the slide manually..

That's different than mine. Look for a hole where you can insert a extension socket. There could be a rod in there and if there is, it's designed to accept a socket and turn it manually either with a handle or power drill.

It sounds like the nylon gear stripped out. Not uncommon. Once you get it opened, you can identify. Hopefully you will be able to identify and find the correct gear replacement, I did on mine a few years ago. Entire motor assembly is pretty pricey. Lippert made most of those components.

Thanks for your reply. It was exactly as you said. I now know they even make a tool that resembles a hand crank for a model a long enough to reach and turn the crank. The nylon gear was destroyed!

Thank you
David

Thanks for the help guys. I found the motor with Wal-Mart online and ordered it, then I found the gears for 100 dollars at eBay so I ordered those and I will return the motor if the gears work. With all this stuff made in China, I figured the orders may take forever to arrive so I hedged my bet.
