Steps

Does anyone have experience with Thor ace step motor continuing to run after the step is either down or retracted? It will continue to run and make a loud noise as the gears lock. Am wondering if there is a timer or a limit switch somewhere that needs to be replaced.

Not sure if it's the same problem as yours, but my step motor would partially retract and then the motor would start "grinding" and I had to manually push the steps back in the rest of the way. I called Thor Customer Service - they shipped out a new motor the same day and I received it less than 24 hours later at no cost (under warranty). It was a quick 10 minute job (3 bolts) for me to replace the motor and send the defective one back using the prepaid mailing label Thor sent me. No trip to the dealer for me - very simple fix.

If you are no longer under warranty, it is a relatively inexpensive part to buy (for example: https://www.amazon.com/Kwikee-379147...+rv+step+motor)

This is why we should always look; before walking down or up, those stairs...
