I have a 99 Minnie, with Kwikee one step. PO tried to work on it, wont go out or in. Every thing is there and when I hook up yellow and red wires I hear a motor running but nothing happens. this occurs with door open or closed and step switch on or off.
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.

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.
