3170ds 2013 will not come in

the rear slide for bedroom and bunk beds will not come in when switch is pressed. Do not hear motor at all. If I press to extend it I can hear the motor and clicking. Any suggestions are welcome. would anyone know what model slide out this would be?
Thank you.

It is a schwintek system (now lippert). In my 2015, there is a control unit mounted in the bay that has the house water filter. The control panel will show a set of flashing lights giving a coded error. You can also override the control to get a retract. Go to youtube and search schwintek problems.

Hope this helps.

I would also suggest checking the switch first to make sure power is flowing when you press the "in" or up position.

The override was not successful as well as removing the two outer connectors which is supposed to release the motor. I tried removing the screw to be able to remove the motor unable to remove the motor will try again. Any other thoughts or something I might be missing. Could something else be preventing the slide from moving. The motor does not go on when depress the switch for in. I was unable to check for power need to get a meter.

Obstructions or broken support roller between the bottom of the slide box and the floor. May need to remove the bottom front fascia to access. Did you get an error code? Is the slide cocked? Just a thought. The clicking noise may have been the stepper motors syncing or low in power.
Are your batteries in good condition. This slide takes a lot of power. Just thinking out loud. If your batteries are weak or old may not have sufficient charge.
Out of thoughts. Keep us informed.
