My steps just started making a rachetting noise when it goes into store mode...goes out quite but coming in is the problem.
I am assuming my motor is going bad..
What do ya think?

Have you tried a little silicone spray lube on the gears and joints underneath?
Mine sometimes does what you're describing, a little lube fixes it every time.

Depends on Year Model. Do you have Kwikee or Coach Step steps? Doug

I had similar noise that you describe. It was caused by stripped plastic gear in gearcase. I had to replace motor/gearcase as a unit. It is about a 15 minute job. Google to find best price.
