Probably stripped the gears. This happens when someone steps on it before it is properly deployed. Only thing to do is replace the gear box. Use the search feature of the forum and you can probably find someone who has done this.

Sounds like the gears might be stripped. Check under the step and you should see the gear box. Actuate the motor and see if you get any movement of the arm that attaches the gearbox to the step pivot point. If the swing-arm doesn't move, then the gearbox is stripped. Make sure when you repair or replace to lubricate every pivot point. most common cause of failure is lack of lubrications. Also don't step on the step when it is extending or retracting.

Thanks guys for the info. I figured that the gears might be stripped. WMckinley, when I connect the yellow and red wires I can hear the motor running and, there is no movement of steps.

You can find posts on the forum here where you can purchase a new step motor for around $80. RV Parts stores are over $200l Amazon for $70, just put in Kwikee Step Motor in their search bar.

Take a picture of your motor. The Mfg of the other than OEM make a right hand and a left hand motor.

If you do determine it is the motor make sure to order the connector/converter or carefully remove that little pig tail from you present wire hook up and use it on the new motor.

Well.....thanks everyone for your support. I found the problem. The small gear that is on the motor is to short to reach the large drive gear in the gear box. Motor is fine, steps are lubed, will have to find the correct motor I guess.

This is the same motor used in Ford electric windows. I can't recall the year,model right now, but seems like it's about $35-$45 at auto parts stores.. You will find it by visiting irv2.com and using the search feature.
