axis windshield wiper motor

My 24.1 Axis windshield wiper and washer are not working, and think I might need at new motor. I checked forums and can't find a thread. Can I buy one easily and have installed?

What year is your Axis?

Early units had a defective washer pump which would blow the wiper fuse and cause exactly what you're describing.

I would first look for a blown fuse and fix that before buying a motor. (Once the fuse is replaced see if the wipers work and then try the washer--if it is the washer motor the second you hit the washer button everything will stop.)

Yup its probably your washer motor.

Its a long shot but try contacting Thor they may warranty it (yeah I know you're about 5 years too late). They warrantied mine and just sent me the motor--I replaced it myself.

Do call Thor Customer Service. they may or may not repair it but they will be able to get you a parts list an diagram. My Hurricane had 2 recalls on the wipers and I found the repair instructions to dealers that included instructions and a complete parts list online but I can't find it now. But for sure check the fuses.

Jinx,
Here are troubleshooting instructions for some of the Thor Wiper systems and in some places it includes Thor part numbers for replacement parts:

sort of solved

Thanks everyone. The wiper works now, but not the washer. Like everyone said, when I try the washer, it blows a fuse and nothing works. So, until I get settled in next week, I will live with the problem and not use the washer. jinxj
