Gear box likely broke a tooth off one of the rotating gears and now is “jumping” causing a shudder or bang when moving.
There is a panel that is screwed to the bottom of the wardrobe slide that covers the motor and chains. Feel around on the top edge of the panel and find the screws and remove them. Then you will have access to the motor and gearbox.
My gears broke and I found the bracket that holds the gearbox to the wall under the slide pulled out of the wall as well. The gearbox can be removed from the motor and replaced (BAL 25076 Slide Out Gear Box).
In my case, I replaced the gearbox but because the screws pulled out of the wall, it was impossible to reattach the bracket. So I found a 6” x 6” piece of angle aluminum and bolted it to the steel footer below the slide, the bolted the bracket to the angle aluminum. Then finally readjusted the chains and cable tensions as required.
