What does the graco swing motor look like?

The graco swing motor is located behind the control panel of your Graco swing. You can find it by following the cord that comes out from the back of your Graco swing unit.

The first step will be to open the back of the control panel by using a flathead screwdriver to lift up on the bottom edge and then pulling upwards from the tab located at the top of the control panel.

Once you have opened up your Graco swing, you will see two switches near where your Graco swing motor sits behind the control panel.

– As soon as you unplug the Graco swing motor, you will see that one of the two switches is no longer present. This switch is responsible for locking and unlocking the button on your Graco swing motor.

– The other switch looks like a slider and it is used to raise and lower the speed of your Graco swing motor. To remove it, slide it towards yourself and pull upwards on the tab.

Disconnecting Graco swing motor

At this stage you should be able to see your graco swing motor without any obstructions. The next step is to disconnect the wire harness from the Graco swing connector.

The Graco swing connector is located on top of the Graco swing motor. To disconnect the wire harness you will need to use both hands as there is a small latch on each side of the connector that needs to be pressed simultaneously in order for it to release.

Once the wire harness has been disconnected, you can lift up your Graco swing motor and remove it from its seat. If you are having trouble removing the Graco swing motor, another tip is to unhook the wire harness that is still plugged into it – this should give you some extra wiggle room.

Now that your Graco swing motor has been removed from its seat, you can proceed with inspecting it and checking if it needs replacing. If there are any visible signs of damage, it is very likely that you will need to replace your Graco swing motor.
