  • Leaky drive motor

    I have the kustodian walker and the tenpin side drive motor has thick oil all over it that has the consistancy of thick gearbox oil. Has anyone experienced this and what is the remedy? Waiting on a call back from Kegel. The brushes were dry but the oil is all around where one of them is located. We also have been having the machine shut off and power back up while running. Random, sometimes on the approach, sometimes on the lane.

    the gear oil in the gear box portion of the gear motor is leaking into the electrical compartement. I had this happen to the drive motor for my ion. Probably need to replace the oil seals and o ring. I think kegel sells a kit for this or you can get the stuff locally after you take the motor apart. If your leak was that bad, you might have to add more oil to the gearbox...Im not sure what oil is used in these gearboxes.....maybe if someone knows they can chime in. Then clean out the oil from the electrical compartment, put it back together and it should work.


    Mine developed a leak again months later. I could see a slight wobble in the shaft and the oil was coming out of the drive shaft oil seal. I mixed some grease into the oil to make it a bit higher viscosity and prevent future leaks and it has been fine so far.

      They are checking into the part numbers for seals and oil for me. The good thing is my boss's brother in law owns a center here in town and he has a spare machine that we can borrow if anything happens.

        Bump... Well we're finally replacing the seals, but getting the motor out looks tricky.
