Mine looked like it was wet so it might have froze over the winter. But it works now, The refurp one is half as noisy as the one that came with it. Pretty simple to swap ot, just a bit time consuming, but you already found this out

Good luck, let us know what it was

Once I tore down the assembly to the bare motor it definitely looks like it has been wet. The motor is seized and will not budge. I am guessing the water rode right in on the wires. I am gonna try to seal that up on the replacement.

I had the same exact thing happen to my awning, it worked in the spring and by fall it had stopped working, just clicked. I tried to tap on it with a rubber mallet as one person suggested, with no luck. Then called a mobile tech who said the motor was froze up and would need replacing. Got it done last week, cost $386 to have it replaced and while they were there had them replace the awning fabric too! Awning was crumbling from the Hot Florida sunshine. $850 later awning and motor replaced.
Going camping!

Dometic recall

Be sure to check.......there was a Dometic awning recall awhile back where the awning would quit working. If you are under the recall, they send the part and have a local person come fix it for free. We had this done last fall on our 376BHOK. Do a google search and you can find the requirements to see if your awning is under the recall.

Thanks, but I did find info on that recall popped up right away when I first searched out info. Although I don't remember the exact serial numbers, it was a range in the 300's and my serial number starts with 402.

The number on the roller

Just be sure you are checking the right number for the recall. We had quite a time finding the one they needed. It is on the roller itself (metal part I think), not the awning fabric. Take a picture of the numbers with your phone. Easier that way. I called them with several numbers before we finally found the right one. The awnings for the recall were installed over several months in the spring of 2013. Our RV is a 2014, but still under the recall because we bought it new in spring 2013. They had already changed the RV year 2014 at the time.

Yep I got the right number and per the recall the units were manufactured between February 13, 2013, [306XXXXX serial #] through April 9, 2013 [314XXXXX serial #]. My camper was built in early 2014 and the serial number is 402977760!

I carry 2 spares, one white and one black which if I need it, will paint it white. Got one on ebay for $75 and the black one with a 21' tube for $100 from a forum member who delivered it to Goshen 2 yrs ago.

Just looked on ebay and found this a few minutes ago.

If your going to Goshin there is an RV junk yard about 5 miles down the road they have brand new awning motors for 35.00 bucks last year the tag is still on it but was the last white one, Buy a couple at that price just for spares. I bought one last year. BUT DO NOT USE THE OUTHOUSE... PS: They have everything and anything you can think of. It's Amish owned and they buy salvage...
