bow thruster up/down motor


Greeting Amelians!

I encountered an inability to raise my thruster unit.

I was able to wire it directly to raise it, and with further testing it seems that the motor itself works intermittently.

Has anyone replaced it by going to the SNT company, which is the manufacturer (French)? I can't seem to find the company online. I requested one from Amel . Speaking of which, man, are they slow in responding or what? Not as bad as getting help from Baymar USA, but still, not exactly a New York minute. More like a Charleston hour (2days).
