Gs6nbexrl01 fountain dispenser door binding?

7 posts in this topic

Gs6nbexrl01. The dispenser door motor seems to be binding. I replaced the motor 2 months ago after it bound up a second time after i disassembled it (freed it) and started to work. It seems to me it may be a design issue but not sure. So i am wondering if there is a upgrade kit for this i havent seen or a way to fix. Thanks again in advance.

No service pointers or service updates on that motor.  May be too early of an emerging issue for WPL techline to have picked up on it.  

 

Is the motor getting wet from condensation or melted frost?

No moisture. It gets stuck in the closed position.
