noise when retracting awning
« on: August 05, 2014, 01:16:37 PM »
I just installed a motorized awning. When I retract the awning it makes a thumping sound. I called Sunsetter  and was told that the splines on the motor are not lined up and the motor would have to be pulled in order to align the splines . Is this a hard job? I was also told that the thumping would just be an annoyance and do no harm to the awning down the road. Any help would be appreciated.

I had 2 awnings this year that did the same thing. Both were 20 ft. I called SunSetter and they sent me a new awning. I didn't try to remove the motor and fix it just doesn't look good and seem right to do on a brand new awning.

Thank you for getting back to me. I think that by returning the bad one and getting another will be the lesser of the two evils since i would have to take the awning down to replace with a new motor(not enough room on the side).
