Hi, I have a bath seat lift 'bellavita' and the motor won't make the seat go down. I've tried all the trouble shooting and still not working. The handset is ok. Do you supply new motors? I've removed the motor and the code from the barcode is 210510A It's a 12 Volt motor. Regards. Rich

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I have been in the repair field for over 20 years. I am sorry you are having issues with your Bellavita bath seat. I will be glad to help you today.

I'm happy to help you decide if you need to get your appliance professionally repaired or if you can manage the repair yourself. However, sometimes it takes me time to type out a more extended response; please be patient!

The issue may very well be with your circuit board. There are components on the circuit board that is called “capacitors.” They store power to start up different parts. A power surge will cause capacitor failure.

A capacitor failure is pretty easy to diagnose by visually inspecting the board. A capacitor that is not entirely flat on top is a failed capacitor. A failed capacitor does not transfer power, so the appliance does not come on.

Most repair technicians will not just replace the capacitor on the board and will instead replace the whole board.

Suppose you frequently have power outages or power surges. In that case, I recommend installing surge protection devices or surge protection outlets to protect any electronics in your home.

Please let me know if my solution worked for you, and we can continue to work together if you need further suggestions.

The question I have is can DeVilbiss or you supply me a replacement motor. I have removed it and it would be very simple for me to install

We are an online, third-party, question-and-answer service. While we have experts who can answer your question, you will need to contact them directly if you are trying to reach the manufacturer.

If you meant to contact JustAnswer, please let me know how I can further assist you.
