Schwintek slide stuck

We have a 2013 voltage 3600. The big slide is stuck. One side starts to move other side does not. We aren’t sure how to fix the issue. Also not getting any codes on the control panel
Thanks in advance

I had a similar issue. Another member recommended pressing the little button on the slide controller 7 times, holding it on the 7th. The LEDs should start blinking. Run the slide all the way out, then all the way in, holding slide control button a few seconds after it is all the way. Solved my issue. Hope this helps...

So many variables with a stuck slide. Is it in or out?

You might try the manual override to see if the problem clears. You might try swapping motor controllers to see if it's a controller.
You might look around and under the floor to see if something found it's way beneath the floor.

My bedroom slide didn't want to go out but a few inches. I finally managed to get it out after doing the override option. When it did deploy all the way I found an old rubber encased dive watch on the floor. A rabid mouse had carried the watch under there and it was jamming the floor.

A search here will yield a ton of useful videos and information for troubleshooting this problem.

Thanks for the info. We tried hitting the button on the controller 7 times but didnít help.

The slide is out.

You did hold the button until the LED starting flashing?

Did the slide make any unusual noises when you tried to bring it in?

Read through this post, it might give you some insight.
Schwintek slide issue......again!

Yes it started flashing. It only makes noise when the side that moves starts struggling then stops since the other side isnít moving

Another thing to check, pull back the rubber seal in the upper corner of the slide to expose the motor. Maybe a broken wire or the Canon plug became loose.

Had the same thing happen, it was a broken wire on the motor. I replaced with a new motor but could have just resoldered the broken wire back on to the circuit board on the top of the motor and reinstalled.

Are you sure you are looking at the controller for the big slide? I have a V 3105, which has a similar slide layout. My bedroom slide controller is in the front compartment, where the batteries are. My kitchen slide controller is in the right front storage compartment, mounted under the shower. Iíve not been able to locate the control box for the living room slide. Where is your living room slide controller located?

Itís in a compartment right in front of the big slide. Bedroom slide control is by the generator
