Slide issue.

Man, I am having no luck this trip. The big slide on my 3600 is giving me problems. When I bring it in or out it makes a knocking noise and looking at it from the outside when it moves in or out it is way out of plumb. The top is coming in before the bottom. Once it's opened or closed all the way it straightens out.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Gearbox or motor gears are damaged (assuming it's a cable slide).

I don't think it is a cable slide. I don't know for sure. Thanks

When the slide is open, do you see a cable (one on top and one on the bottom) on the outside of your slide?

No cables. It works off gears. Thanks

Gear tracks on the bottom or on the sides? i.e. is it a Schtinteck?

BTW, it's not uncommon for a slide to touch at the top before the bottom. Not inches, but a bit.

It is a shintech. I will take it apart when I am home. Thanks

It's possible that the Schwintek has slipped a cog.

Mostly what you will be able to do now is the manual override procedure. A million videos on how to do this.


When you get home 'taking it apart' will be out of the question.

What will the manual over ride do for me? You say taking it apart is out of the question. Why is that? Thanks a lot
