5r landing gear motor rotates 90*

I have the trailer in my sig and it is Lieppert landing gear. I've noticed for awhile now that when lowering/raising the front electric stabilizers that the trailer will stop moving for a split second and then start moving again. When this happens the tone of the motor will also change. Tonight I checked the motor and the manual crank shaft is not positioned to where the hole is. I lowered the gear and heard the motor noise change. I stopped lowering the gear and sure enough the motor rotated 90* to the proper position for manual cranking.
I've searched on here for this but didn't find anything. Anyone else hear of this happening?
I will email Lieppert and ask them for help on fixing this. I will update as I hear from them also.
Any feedback would be appreciated also.
Sorry for the long post.

It sounds like the bolts that are supposed to secure the motor to the pump have either broken or fallen out. Are there random bolts loose under the pump/area of such?
