Hidden TV not raising

I have a 2009 3665RE with the tv behind the fireplace. It raises out of the countertop. When I went to raise it nothing happened. I checked fuses and they are good. What next?

Ours has a manual switch in the left cabinet.
Reseat all the connectors.
Get a multimeter and check for voltage (12vdc).

I have tried the manual switch also. I was hoping I wouldnít have to remove fireplace to get to it. Thanks

Unfortunately, you are not the first to experience this. Here are some previous discussion that may (or not) help. You can try a Search using appropriate keywords. I used "tv lift" to find these.

I would start by removing the manual switch and check for voltage. Here's a picture of the back of the switch. I'm guessing red is 12vdc. You will need to toggle the switch and check for voltage on the other side to verify the switch is working.
The other picture is the top of the worm screw drive that lifts the TV. Maybe put a drill and socket on that bolt head to lift the TV if you have to remove the fireplace to get to the remote control on the wall behind the TV.

stuck televator

Before you start checking electric, does it go down a little bit. Some ot the cutouts arn't quite right. If the tv is lowered all the way when you try to raise the tv the top edge may get stuck on the cut out and not raise. If this is the case just lower it all the way. and being careful not gto pinch your fingers, just push back on the top edge as it begins to rise.and it will come up.

We have a 2011 Montana 3580RL with the same TV combination. If you pull the fireplace, I'll almost guarantee the Lift Component is a Lippert Lift. I pulled the model number from mine (236843) and called Lippert Tech Support. They recommended I replace the Step Motor Model # 300-1406. I found this on Amazon for $34.99 and it fixed my problem. I've added 3 pictures to identify what I'm talking about.
FYI, this applies to everyone. There's an App called Lippert Communities which is free to download and join. It's another forum to ask questions more specific to Lippert products and offer MANY features besides tech support.

Garry_B, is this a new-to-you camper, or have you had it for a while? If you've had it a while, did the Television lift work OK in the past and it just now quit working? Or has it been not working for some time.

If this is a new-to-you camper (used), it's possible the motor is bad. The previous seller did not disclose this to you. (one of those little things that, by itself is not bad to deal with. But when multiple little things mount up, it's easier to sell the camper than fix it all)... Just guessing here?

How long have you owned this camper?

I was looking forward to the pics. Did you have a problem? Posting pictures on the MOC isn't too difficult once you know the process. Lots of members do just that. Be sure to take the photo in Landscape mode.

Go to https://www.montanaowners.com/forums...ad.php?t=70323 and read posts #8 and #25.

If you upload the pictures to the MOC, subsequent viewers can blow them up to a larger, more viewable size. And you will avoid the problem where the picture hosting site decides to no longer allow web forum access (Tinypic, Photo Bucket, etc.)
