Customer Comment:
Your parts rebuild kit should also contain one, 1/30th timer motor. When the piston gets stuck in the seals or is very hard to drive thru regeneration, the timer motor's internal gears strip out. So if someone was to rebuild their fleck 5600, it would still get stuck in cycle.

Thank you for your comment. I believe it is only true about 5% of the time. That is my experience from years of "rebuilding" valves personally ( since 1989 ), and also selling thousands of rebuild kits online ( since 1999 ). We mention you might need a new timer motor in our How to Rebuild guide, but I feel it would be unfair to tell Every One they needed to replace the motor at the same time they replace the Pistons & Seals.
