Bedroom Slide Motor

Lost one tooth on one of the gears inside the gear box for the bedroom slide. doink-doink-doink It still works but it's only a matter of time. Klauber Machine and Gear is the manufacturer. Part number K01348F500 Proprietary, I hate that word, for Equalizer systems. Yes, those people. $600 plus..... Part number search yields nothing.

Anyone know another source for these?

Wrong company wrong gear.

This is the one I need, and it's Equalizer systems. The two arrows are pointing at two gears which are attached, as in one piece. The smaller gear has the tooth missing.

You're not likely to find the internal gearing anywhere. You may get lucky and find a gearbox at an RV salvage yard. I'd call a few and see if they have any.

Amazon and ebay have plenty of Lippert 18:1 replacement gears, but I can't find one like you show.

No I know I'm not going to find it and that's what's frustrating me. The manufacturer has those gears but Equalizer won't stock/supply it. It's a known point of failure and they get you for $680 every time it happens. I find this unethical.

Not sure if there is better documentation on the prints, but maybe Randy or Mitch could help you out. Looks like FR references the system as their part number 7343. See attached

gearbox

Any mechanical engineers out there? This looks like a redesign job. Could be fixed with a clutch that would slip before letting the gear tooth break. An electrical engineer would approach this problem by designing a circuit that would be placed between the voltage source and the motor and would detect an overcurrent, kill the motor and save the gear tooth. My choice would be the current limiter.
First we need to know the nominal current in both a directions of travel.
A sheer pin on the final gear might also work but requires further investigation on how much torque is causing tooth failure.

Have you tried Boston Gear? They have a wide selection of gears and power drives. Bostongear. Com
Just a thought.

Anyone been able to source the gears for this box? It looks like this to be a common issue on that specific gear. FR want some $950.00 for this.... WHAT A RIPOFF.
