I have discovered a leak in my bidet toilet seat and appears the water has got into the stepper motor and caused corrosion. The motor controls the rod which now doesn’t extend or retract properly.
When powered on via 240v wall plug, the unit goes through a start sequence control/reset process and triggers the motor to move the rod back into correct position, however, the spindle barely turns. So I’ve decided to replace it.
The motor is stamped with the specs, but due to age and damaged, some is illegible. I can’t scratch under the red wrapper without losing the stamp also.
What I can see is:
Not sure what comes after the ST28 - maybe a “54” (which could allow it to be “548”… maybe?)
And looks like the Ohm symbol after the 130
and maybe the last line is 160412 - some kind of product code (but not one I can find online)
I found a possible replacement with
Most of the dimensions match except the spacing between mounting holes. original is 40mm, new is 35mm (which I could probably make work)
But I see there’s a difference in Ohms
- original says 130, and this new one is 280.
Is this going to be acceptable, or a showstopper?
