Frankia 2005 electric sunroof/skylight problem..
 
Hi all, we’ve just bought a Frankia A Class 2005 and for the week we’ve had it the electric sunroof has been working fine. However on our first trip away it’s now stuck in the fully up position and we had to travel home with it like that! We’ve had an electrician check the switch and that’s fine so possibly the motor….but if we’ve managed to get it up surely it couldn’t be the motor? (It was only up a little bit and wouldn’t come down so we thought take it up further and it might, but no!) Also we don’t have the equipment to wind it down manually. Has anybody else had this issue? I hope someone can help as we need to get it down before it rains!! Thank you

Oops, your post seems to have been missed! Just giving it a bump. Have you managed to get it down yet? I hope someone with experience of that type of rooflight comes along soon.

Hi and welcome to MHF.


I seem to recall reading about a similar problem a while ago, I think there is a plastic wheel in the mechanism and it was worn and resembled a ratchet so it would wind one way but not the other, it is similar to how windscreen wipers work, which a cog acting on basically an open coiled spring.

as we don't know which type your is, maybe this might help to give you some ideas.
