A Step-by-Step Guide: How to Swap Motors from one side to the other

Have you found yourself pondering the process of swapping motors from left to right on your Silent Gliss 5600 Electric Curtain Track? You're not alone. Many of our customers often get in touch to ask if its possib. In this blog post, we'll provide a comprehensive guide accompanied by a helpful video tutorial, making the process smooth and stress-free.


Step 1: Preparation
Before commencing the motor swap, gather the necessary tools and ensure you have a clear workspace. You'll require a screwdriver and a steady hand for a seamless transition. If your track is already installed, carefully take it down, remove the motor and place on a flat, stable surface.


Step 2: Disassembly
Begin by pushing the overlap arm and the unit towards the center. Then, carefully remove the gliders from the ends to gain access to the motor housing.


Step 3: Removal of Components
On the non-motor side, remove the cap to reveal the inner workings. On the motor side, identify the unit part and gently extract it. This grants access to the motor casing, which can be removed by pulling it off.


Step 4: Swapping Motors
With the motor casing removed, simply slide the motor onto the other side in a straight motion. Ensure a secure fit into place. Reinstall any removed components, such as the cap and unit part, to maintain setup integrity.


Step 5: Final Touches
After successfully swapping the motor, reattach the cover on the non-motor side and secure it firmly. Verify all connections to ensure proper alignment.


And thats it! You've completed the motor swap from one side to the other on your SIlent Gliss 5600. This straightforward process can enhance setup functionality and efficiency.
