schwintek slide motor repair

I had a problem this summer when one of the motors would move 2" and stop. did a manual override at the controller and the motors worked fine. So being cheep i pulled the motor out and found the circuit board is very simple, tested all the wiring it was fine. The 2 little "Hall" sensors had failed ordered 5 from amazon (Honeywell SS41 Hall effect sensor) $5.32. Soldered them in and replaced the motor works like new. Hope this helps. A Lot better than a $150.00 motor. Fyi the original sensors are the cheapest available not surprised.

My slide seems to be doing the same thing. Do these Hall sensors go on the motor or the control board?

The sensors are on the motor. Under the plastic cover

I have not had time to repair the motor yet and wanted to go camping tomorrow. Is there any way to get the slide out? I was able to get it in using the electronic overide but I don't think the overide works going out. Does anyone know for sure?

I am pretty sure it works both ways, but why not try it out at home first to be sure.

Thanks for sharing and posting, I will definitely try that when the motor eventually quits.

Ok, I got it to work going both ways. It is more difficult when the slide is in because I have to use a 3/16 inch dowel rod that is about three feet long to be able to reach the little button on the controller. Just waiting on the sun to come up before heading out.

I am curious, where is your controller located, ours is under the raised floor the sofa sits on and almost in the middle of the sofa, can't even access it, dumbest place ever to put it

I have thought of moving our's out from under the sofa, but don't want to do anything to void the warranty, we have already had the slide fixed 3 times since we bought it new in July. Hopefully it is fixed for good now. But since I cannot access the controller, we had to use brute force with 3 guys to push the slide in to get it to the dealer for repair. Since yours was under the sofa too, do you happen to have a picture of where you have it now?
