Power Window Motor Specifications

by Francine Adams

Power window motors are mechanisms installed inside of the car door which control the function of the window glass enabling them to go up and down. When the power window motor fails the window ceases to operate in whatever position it was in when the power window motor failed. It can be a security concern if the window is open when the motor fails.

Basic Specification

The power window motor has four mounting hole positions. There is a working voltage of 12 volts DC current. The unit is waterproof and ISO 9001 certified.

No Load Specification

The no-load speed or speed when no torque is applied to the motor shaft is 95 rotations per minute (rpm) and the no load current is less than 1.5 amperes.

Stall Specification

The stall torque or minimum torque needed to completely stop the motor shaft from rotating, or stall the motor, is less than 8 units or pound-feet (N.m) and the stall current is less than 20 amperes.
