    Has anyone been able to successfully repair/replace an animatronic motor? Spirit Halloween doesn’t have replacement parts for my thousands of dollars of animatronics that were damaged.

    Hey y'all! So, I picked up a Leather face a while back and he's in very, VERY, poor condition. He doesn't have his chainsaw/hands and his eyes don't move anymore. Seems like the wires popped off so they will need to be soldered on or something which I'll eventually figure out. You can plug in an...

    I have a 2007 Dead Eye Drake that has a burnt out motor in the torso. For the life of me, I can't seem to find a motor that works with this guy, either the shaft is too short, or the motor is too fast, or it doesn't run on 3 Volts. I know the movement isn't fried, because I have tried 2 seperate...

    (This has good advice for those looking for repair tips/tricks, etc.) As it turns out, I happened to miraculously have a spare of the shredded gear mentioned in part 1. Here it is in place! If you are wondering where it came out of, it originally belonged to a Spare Hand Jar that had fried out...

    Hey! I have a Jason and a Ghostface who need work on their arms. Jason's arm gets stuck and I have to move it to get it working again, and Ghostface's arm is slowing down as each year passes, and will eventually need a new motor. My question is, what gears do these items use on the end of their...

    Hello, I have a high voltage box that closes about 90% of the way with no issue, however it jumps back open and will never go down all the way to hit the relay switch. A perfect video example is this: Does anyone know what I can do to fix this? I've been working on it for a while and it looks...

    So, my fogger seems to be overheating after producing less than impressive clouds. I've removed the cover and its very hot to the touch inside and I can see some smoke it seems. Where might I be able to find replacement parts? Or what kind of shop might repair these? Locating these things is...

    With the help of a blower from an old inflatable and some dryer vent and duct tape I was able to breathe new life into my dragon inflatable. Just adjusted the zipper at his base to offset the extra power from the larger blower.

    Hey everyone, this is my first post on here but I assume if anyone can help me with this it's you all! So I got a dog machine from a friend and have been trying to fix it. It heats up and I can hear a hum when I activate it, but it never sucks any juice up. I tried using some fog juice cleaner...

    I recently obtained a Harvester from a local yard sale. Cosmetically, he is in great condition. No dirt anywhere on his inside or his clothes. The problem I am having is with his head rising mechanism. His eyes, mouth, and head turn all work great, however his head doesn't lift up or down. You...

    I picked this up years ago as a package deal with a few other life size props (bone collector, scream, headless horseman for $50 bucks). When I got it I figured I could figure out why she didn't work but honestly it kept getting put in the attic or if pulled out just put into background. At...

    Hi All, I have the retired Spirit Halloween Grave Digger prop and it needs some repair. 2 issues: 1) The plastic piece that holds his head in place must have broke, and I can't find anything that will repair it (his head moves side to side and tilts, so can't glue) 2) His arm is supposed to...

    The red wire soldered to the sensor in my step here pad got pulled out. I'm trying to solder it back on, but I don't know exactly where it goes. Do I solder it onto the edge of the metal next to the negative wire? Do I solder it to the other side? Or do I solder it somewhere on the metal exposed...
