I don't have any info on the motor operation other than what those downloads show. I was in the middle of a bunch of projects and travel & didn't make any other notes that I can find. I have a few photos of the gearbox. I did take the TV and frame off for access. I ordered the motor and the lead time was around 2 months. The sticker on the motor said Lift It, Inc., Made in USA,Lift It: Flip-Down Ceiling TV Lifts for LCD and Plasma Televisions
, Model #LFT-23-A0020-B. The motor was around $700.
There have been a few times it didn't move up or down in the last few years.
I unplug the motor wire at controller JP3 and unplugged 120 VAC source, the relay clicks and everything starts working like normal (same symptom & cure 2X)
Are you measuring the 120 VAC at the control module or where? Do you get any indication/noise, clicking at the controller or motor when trying to raise/lower it? Have you manually lowered it? It needs to be lowered for access.
