Hi Alan
I believe that you can buy replacement motors from ABP but you will need to know the step make and possibly the model...

I have had to free off the step on my RV several times using WD40 and then liberal coatings of oil on literally every hinged joint on the step, you have to get right under and you will be surprised at how many hinge points there are!

If you disconnect the motor mechanism (mind your fingers!) then try the motor with no load it may just work then free the step off as above.

It worked for me!
