having slide issues.

Anyone give me some idea's on what to do next. My Schwintek slide has one motor that starts and then binds up. I'm getting 8 lights saying wiring problem. So I replaced the cable going from the controller to the motor but no good still getting 8 lights and still binding up both going in and out.
I have warranty still I'ts only 9 months old. This is the third motor Fr has replaced out of my 5 slides. I just don't want to have my 5er stuck at the dealer for another month. FR has had my 5er more than I have. Its been in there hands both at the dealer and the factory 5 of the 9 months owned.
Will FR send me the parts to replace myself?
Any help will be appreciated.

Pull the motor out and check all solder points. They are weak and I bet one is loose. They are easy to see once motor is out.

I agree with Rooftop. Connections seem to be a big part of FR problems. I have had numerous connections loose causing the unit to heat up and fail. If you can get hold of a warranty rep they will be able to send out parts if you have clear description of parts needed. Seems like the Dealer has dropped the ball
