I still haven't figured out a way to fix this problem. It'* almost been a year! I did have them work mysteriously, on one hot summer day this last summer, and I thought they were magically fixed. But they weren't. It seems that the hot weather had something to do with them temporarily functioning.

I would suggest swapping another motor from say the forward/back function and trying it to test the theory of the weak motor.

Sounds like the same problem I had on both of my bonnies, and on mine, the motor wasn't weak, the lube had dried up.
See the following write-up that I posted:

Sorry, but I didn't have my digital camera with me when I did the diagnosis and fix but if anyone has questions, just ask.
