My bed made a noise bringing it in yesterday so I stopped. It would jot go back out, just bad noise in upper right looking from inside. It came in all the way and goes out about one foot then stops with bad noise. I will have to call dealer in the AM. Fortunately it is stuck in and we do not a camping trip soon.

This is the Info

BAL Accu Slide Replacement Motor Standard 22307 RV Slide Out Accuslide Norco | eBay.webloc

At accuslide site they have PDF manuals for the adjustment and installation of the Slide/Wire system and Motors.

It's important to adjust the slides after a while, the "string cables" loose up. Need to be adjusted, or the slide will go "Sideways" and corrupts the Gearbox. In my gearbox a "Tooth" was broken off causing the slide to get stuck and making the "Grinding" noise.

Push the Slide from the outside while pulling the slide in pushing the switch..... when in, go look for service.

Just got mine back...

My bedroom slide on a 25DS made a noise while extending. Thought that I better get it in since I was 90 miles from the house. It would not come back in. Called Service Dept and they said to hang tight and they would call the MFG in the morning and see what they thought. In the mean time they sent me the link to the repair manual.

In the morning they called and said to go outside and push it in, while the wife push the button. The gear box appeared to have a "Dental Problem", broken tooth on a gear. I was able to push it over the bad tooth and it thumped each time we hit the bad tooth. We got it all the way in.

I had removed the panel to expose the gearbox and motor assembly. I watched the assembly as my wife pushed the button. I could see the motor and it small, input shaft turning, but the output shaft was not turning the gear and chains.It all looked good except that the motor appeared to be installed with a slight tilt.

Dealer ordered the part and put it in last week. It appears that the tilt was causing the chain to bind on the gear which caused more of a load on the gearbox than it was designed for. It is now mounted nice and level and works great.

Troy at Freedom RV in Liberty Lake , WA has done a great job of fixing the little problems we have had.

The Norco "Gearbox" is the weak part.

I am now very cautious to extend my slides.... They both have the same motor/Gearbox. Seen a few (8) Gearbox problems now with similar noises and situation.

Yes, just happened to our fr3 25ds
Rear bedroom slide gearbox nfg
Looks like a tooth in the box has snapped off Dealer is ordering a new box, but could be several weeks, then the install
The box is a R25076
Cannot find it through BAL ??
Is it that new they don't have it on the website, or is it built specially for the fr3 ?

When should this be recalled, what is the process for that? FR should publish some instructions on how to check it out and what to do if you have a problem when your on a trip and need to get back home. How to manually disengage the slide if that's possible.

One good thing about the gearbox skipping / grinding, you can still move the slide in & out by pushing the slide, unlike if the motor burns out, then out comes the drill & extension

Well it happened us too this weekend. When we went to put the rear slide out it resisted and made some noise. Fortunately due to the forum posts I was prepared for some resistance with it going in as well. We were able to get it in with some pushing from the outside that we can hear the missing tooth skipping.
I'll be calling the dealer in the morning to make sure they get the part ordered.
We have a list of things that they need to take care of so this is just one more, but it's the biggest.
