RE: Dometic 9100 Awning probem

Dougrainer/fj12ryder........ Afraid not, (reminds me of the the joke with the punchline, 'a frayed knot'). The piece the set screws seat into does not spin on the shaft. That piece is fast to the motor shaft, and the motor shaft will not turn. Once the set screws are removed should that coupling be free from the motor shaft? That's the only way I can see it would work without shearing off the wires. I sure could use some help 'cause we're supposed to be leaving in two days, and rough weather is heading this way. (In north GA, awaiting tropical storm Fred's arrival). BTW, I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed, but my wife thinks I'm the shiniest! Shhhhh, don't tell her!

RE: Dometic 9100 Awning probem

Yes, the set screws release the motor, but the wires from the motor, even when retracted and tucked in, impede the rotation of the spool enough to prevent it from rotating. Should I just get some additional manpower and force it?? Should the motor be unable to rotate when not powered?? Seems it would have to to hold the awning open. But what to do with the wires??

RE: Dometic 9100 Awning probem

Thanks gdweb, but that's not the problem. It's getting power, but the motor is seized up. I'm trying to figure how to make it retract with a seized motor. I'm so not a fan of the engineering, not to mention the lack of available, practical information from the Dometic website. Just wondering, are they so vague about helpful info intentionally??? It's such an common malfunction, why wouldn't they want to be helpful to their customers????

Dometic 9100 Awning probem

Search gave no hits. I have a Dometic 9100 Motorized awning. The motor has failed and is locked up. Because it's locked up, It won't allow me to manually retract it. The owners manual says to remove the two Allen head screws to free it. However, the wires coming from the motor are protruding through the hub. Must I cut those wires? What am I missing? We must leave here in three days and need to get the awning retracted. TIA!

RE: Sliding glass door replacement.

Thank y'all for the replies. The manufacturer will only sell the whole door unit for over $1,000 shipped. Residential doors are taller than these. It might fit, but I wasn't willing to chance being able to trim 2" off the header. Turns out, a local glazier custome ordere the pane and replaced it with one of the same tint as the other panel, for $600. Happy trails y'all.

Sliding glass door replacement.

Our sliding glass entrance door got shattered. It's a Cedar Creek (Forest River) Cottage 40 CRS. I've reached out to FR three different ways only to be ignored. Where can I find a replacement? I'd love to replace the whole thing with a unit fromm Home Depot with blinds between the glass, but their frames are 5" wide compared to the existing 3.5". ANY help appreciated. Thank y'all in advance.
