INSTRUCTIONS: you must pay special attention to the initial cord rolling direction. Because if the motor is inserted in the wrong direction, it ... won't work!
If cord starts rolling from this direction (follow blue arrow), motor to be on the RIGHT.If cord starts rolling from this direction (follow blue arrow), motor to be on the LEFT.

STEP 1: Follow directions ABOVE (see pictures) to determine cord winding direction on the spools.
STEP 2: Turn the shaft to roll the cord All The Way UP onto the spool. Turn until you feel tight and you can't turn any more.
STEP 3: Insert the new motor into the shaft (remember the orientation of step 1)
STEP 4:
* If you have Headrail Cover, then slide it back to securely hold motor(s) & spools in place. OR,
* If you have the Spool Covers, then install them now.
STEP 5: Pull shade all the way down & raise it up to test. It should be working fine.

TROUBLESHOOT:
  • if your shade has tension, but does NOT go all the way up, it's likely because you did not roll the cords (step 2) all the way up onto the spools. Redo it. Remember to turn until you feel very tight.
  • if your shade has NO tension at all, there're few possibilities:
    • you did not do step 1 correctly, the cords orientation are not turning the same directions as the loading arrow on the motor. OR
    • the motor could be bad (the spring coil detached from the core), OR
    • you need to add loads/tensions to the motor
  • if you are sure you did step 1 correctly, then the motor tension may need to be reset. Insert the motor into the rod (step 3) and add turns/loads (follow the arrow direction). Turn until you feel sufficient resistance.
  • if the shade has too much tension, it keeps pulling up a couple of inches at all the way down position, then add more weight (slim metal bar) to the bottom rail.

This spring loaded motor has 2 parts. The long part of the motor holds the spring & creates tension. The short part is just a dummy rod holder (to use in case you have a Top Down Bottom Up shade).

If you repair Top Down Bottom Up, it's easier to repair 1 set (top down) at a time. Hold the motor down with a rubber band while you work on the 2nd set (bottom up)
