93 850 Recirc damper motor calibration?

Post by 850man »

I am installing a good used replacement recirc air damper motor (Volvo #6849557).
Damper motor - 4 pin

I connected/ installed motor and observed the actuation rotation (angle) exceeds the damper arm's travel, causing noticeable motor to bog under this stress.

I carefully opened the motor and everything looks great (gears, lubrication, "potentiometer" tracks free of debris, etc.)

**Is there a ECC recirc damper motor calibration required? If so, can someone share with me this procedure so I can reduce the motor rotation? Other suggestions? Thanks!

I haven't done the calibration procedure before, so I can't offer help on that.
But, I have replaced the damper motors before. If you rotate the replacement damper to the same position that the old one was in when you removed it, you may not have to do a recalibration.
1997 855 GLT (Light Pressure Turbo) still going strong. Previous: 1986 240 GL rusted out in '06, 1985 Saab 900T rusted out in '95, 1975 Saab 99 rusted out in '95, 1973 Saab 99 rusted out in '94
