Replacement Motor Upgrade Kit For Kwikee 40 Series Steps To Solve Buzzing And Slow Speed

Question:

I think this is the correct replacement part for my steps. Can you confirm so I can order? My steps will open with a 3 second loud buzz at the end. They will partially retract with the same buzz. They will fully retract with the buzz if I give them a push. Am I correct that the motor needs replacing and not the control unit? Attached is a picture of my motor assembly.

Expert Reply:

Yes, installing a new motor on your Kwikee 40 Series powered steps is most likely going to solve your issue of buzzing and slow retraction speed. For a replacement motor that fits your 40 series steps, you will want to use Replacement Motor with mounting plate # LC379608. You will also want to verify that all of your wires and connections are correct. If you would like a complete upgrade kit to make sure everything will work like new, I would just go with upgrade kit # LC379145 which includes a new motor, linkage, control unit, switch kit, and hardware.
