    • The core device can actually be accessed by the bottom; screws are hidden under the rubber pad.

    • The rubber pad is simply glued to the bottom, you can easily unstick it from the shell to gain access to the screws.

    • Be careful to only pull the rubber part and not the entire bottom. I initially tried to force it out and figured out the screw location by breaking it... don't do that.

    • Under the rubber pads are 4 Philips screws to get inside.

    • The 3 Philips screws holding the motor to the structure can be removed.

    • The motor won't slide out immediately – you'll also need to remove the encoder sensor. Just pull it out carefully from its socket.

    • While trying to slide the motor out, make sure to disconnect its cable from the main board.

    • The motor can then be disassembled by removing the 2 Philips screw holding its shell.

    • Inside the motor, just realign all the cogs together so that everything spins together.

    • If you want to test out the motor before reassembling everything:

    • Reconnect all the cables that were disconnected during disassembly

    • Plug the device back in

    • Connect to the device through the Petcube app, and try flinging a treat

    • The motor will instantly respond (or not) and make it easier to find what's wrong, or if the motor needs replacement.

Conclusão

Then to reassemble the device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

Hello! This is very helpful.. mine doesn’t start up at all do you have any ideas on how to get the motor to start

Elizabeth Knowlton - Responder

This guide was super useful! Unfortunately, I found that the problem is that one of the gears broke off. Does anyone have any instructions on how to dismantle this type of motor in order to substitute the damaged gears? Thank you in advance!

Same here. 8 tooth gear snapped in half. Is there a part number for it?
