Default Re: engine hatch hydraulic motor??? help its stuck

It may be made by Acculift which I believe has a website but has very limited info. I had a similar issue so I took mine apart.
the entire armature, spindle, gears and contacts were packed in grease. I cleaned all the grease out and re-attached. Worked faster, but not fast as I wanted.
Over the weekend, I met a guy that suggested running the motor on a relay vs. from the battery. His opened twice as fast as mine so I'm going to give that a whirl.

hope this helps.
