Expert:  david craig replied 8 months ago.

have you tried at each individual door?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
was told motors needed replacing but then why do I hear them working when I press the up and down switches
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
lol, is true, me either, but I am not a mechanic
Expert:  david craig replied 8 months ago.

you are right. if you hear the motors running at each door, then they dont need replaced. normally i would say the regulators need replaced, but its very hard to believe that all 4 regulator need replaced.... i gotta look into this...give me a few.
