Winegard RAYZAR Automatic antenna

The previous owner installed the RAYZAR in place of the batwing on my Roadtrek Class B. The element stopped turning, so I took it apart to see what's up. It turns out the small, plastic gear (1/4" OD, 9 teeth) on the drive motor cracked and is slipping on the shaft. Other than that, the RAYZAR works OK (as good as they can).

Has anyone found a replacement gear for the drive motor. I can't see spending a bunch of money on this thing.

Thanks!

You can try calling Winegard but they usually won't sell you any parts.

The motor/gearbox was manufactured by Product Concepts, Ltd. A Google search came up with little details.

Did you ever find a replacement gear or gearbox? I have the same problem- little gear on the motor cracked...
Thanks!

$400 plus on a three year old Razar system and it works again. My Weingard Traveller satellite dish only lasted a year before it crapped out. Not really impressed with Weingard or their products.

I had no luck in finding a replacement gear. But, then again, I had to put the system back together in preparation for my 1600 mile, annual snowbird trip south. During the trip, I was still able to receive some TV stations. Your prompt just reminded me that I need to pursue this some more!

Well, you are in luck. Apparently Winegard has been feeling the heat from all of the negative posts and feedback. They JUST (like just today) started selling the replacement gearboxes for the Rayzar Automatic Antenna. Part #2665088 $29.99 plus shipping and tax. Includes complete gearbox with motor! You have to call them direct 800-288-8094, the part is not available online yet.

I have the same problem. The small gear on the motor split in two pieces. they should sell the motor with the gear.
Thanks for the part number.

And why would anyone other than a hobbyist do that if the new part is $30?
Spend the hours to measure and program the printer?
