Are these motors made in China? I bought a pair on ebay which lasted about 8 months but I didn't know they were made in China so if they are do you have anything better? I do not want to keep spending my money on these every year.
These motors are made in China, but we have had great luck out of them. If you had premature failure, I would ensure that all of the frame components are properly greased and there is no binding going on. If the motors are having to work harder than they were designed for, the internal plastic bushings will fail.
