Motor location is generally behind the upper trim (or if cabinets are over the slide then the false back of the cabinet) will reveal the motor. Motor will be in the center.

The trim has screws under the plugs.

Could not retracted the bedroom slide, I think I overextended it. After retracting a few inches I checked the switch and it closed the rest of the way on its own.

For the bedroom was the motor behind false back of cabinets or trim?

The bedroom slide components are located behind this top trim piece. Remove 3 screws under plastic plugs and the trim falls right out.

Be sure to check the slides movement in and out. If there is any slipping in the movement then the gearbox is going to fail at some point (may fail anyways...ymmv).

The next thing to look at is if cables are within the tension specification. This is checked both open and closed on the slide. If one side is loose it will open/close but it is going to gove you problems. The guide and videos show how to adjust. Ive had mine for 3 years now and adjusted twice (once by dealer under warranty and once now by myself after replacing both motors gearboxes.). The gear box is designed to be the weakest link so you dont break something hard and expensive to fix.

If anybody does lose just a motor ive got 2 extra that work fine.
