Default Drapery Control Wheel repacements

Does anyone know where to get the replacement wheels for the drape motors in the 92 WL? The model # is ADARI or1 and the serial # is 17211, Action Drapery Control Systems, Lightwood Mfg. Inc. (they are out of bis.) Failing that would anyone know of a replacement motor?

Post back once you install, to let us know how easy the install was (or wasn't), and what a difference it made to the drapes moving on their own without help!

Markus,
Changing the drape tires is as simple as he instructions read.

Getting the cord back in the tires...get the cord started...install the cover...then run the drive motor. My experience is the cord will not stay in the tires with the cover removed. I changed all of ours years ago; great improvement; no pulling the drapes along by hand.

YEH Ernie,

I'm in the same boat, but it sure beats having to check the date codes on them little tires, my eyes ain't that good anymore and then getting that little bitty jack under their axles to change them out when the they are past their usable dates.
