Walthers Cornerstone Motorized 130′ Turntable Not Working

Walthers Cornerstone Motorized 130' TurntableWayne would like help with this problem:

“I have a fault issue, when I try to turn my non DCC 130ft Walthers turntable, it only moves about an inch then stops. I can then move it about an inch in the opposite direction. This happens when the turntable is placed on the pit in any position. It doesn’t appear to be jamming and I have cleaned the terminals. There doesn’t appear to be any broken wires.  The turntable worked okay the previous day.  Can you please help me?   Regards  Wayne”

    Is it still taking power when its stops ? This would suggest stalling or jamming of a mechanical part.
    Are there limit switches to control its position when it lines up with the track ? If so, they may be set in the wrong position.

    Any chance you could tell me how to wire that turntable up? I have one I picked up at a garage sale and haven’t even touched it once I saw all the connections on the bottom side. Thanks,Dana

      Some manufacturer’s websites have instruction sheets and manuals for free download in the support section.
