Cable definitely needs replacement so I have ordered the Accu Slide replacement cable kit.
Big mystery seems to be where access is to the motor/gearbox/cable assemblies. Dynamax appears uncertain as to where I get at components. First suggestion was under the bed. Nope...only has Aquahot components. Next suggestion was behind BR ceiling crown molding. This is plausible but I also saw a forum post which i can no longer locate where access was obtained by removing the vertical carpeted "footboard" below drawers in bunkhouse and master BR. I'm reluctant to begin tearing things apart without knowing precisely where the cable assemblies are located.
Anyone have some experience in this area that can help me out? (Could have used an easier newbie problem to address!!)
The Accu-Slide gear motor is top center on both of my FR3 slides. I had to remove the crown moulding to get at the motor & cable adjustments.
See my thread: Stuck in my Driveway with a dead living room slide motor
Also watch a few Youtube videos:
Be careful, while under warranty, I had a loose cable rip the motor off the wall.
