OKIN MOTOR INFORMATION

PICTURE OF OKIN MOTOR
This is what an Okin motor looks like. It is also called an Oki motor or an Okimat motor. It is usually black but can also be gray or white. The two doors on the top of both ends slide off and the motor drops off the bed. To install one, you remove the doors, push it up on the bed and replace the doors. If you have a wireless bed, you will have to reprogram the hand control to the new motor following the directions for your particular brand of bed.

Although the motor size is the same amongst most brands of bases, I do need to know some information about your base to get you the right version of this motor. I will need to know about the distance between the two mounting bars and about your control system.

As a general rule, the center to center distance between the two mounting bars on Okin motors is 22.75 inches.

Okin motors can be controlled by wireless remote controls or hard wired controls. Some of the motors controlled by a wireless remote control need an antenna box and some do not.

I have two sources for these motors. Each uses a different operating system.

MOTORS CONTROLLED BY WIRELESS REMOTE CONTROLS

Source 1:
There is a old version and a new version from this company. The old version was used by Maxwell Products. It had either an antenna screwed to the bottom of the head of the bed with a power down button at the foot or, a square antenna/power down box with a rocker switch on the top of the box. The control ports on these motors were also different than on the new versions.  Those models are no longer available but can be replaced by the newer version.

The new versions have either no antenna/power down box at all or if they did, it was a rectangular box with a tiny push button on the side of the box and a LED light beside the push button. You can use this new version in all of the beds but your massage motors will not plug into it and you will also need the new matching hand controls and a new antenna box if you want the emergency power down option. If you still want the massage feature, you will need to order 2 new massage motors. The pictures below show what the ports on the new version look like.

Source 2:
The motor from this company looks identical but it does not have massage ports. It has a built in plug for a 9 volt battery for the emergency power down option and the antenna box plugs into the port for the wired hand control. They use this same motor for the hard wired version, the hand control just plugs into the port where the receiver for the wireless version plugs in. Because it will not work with anyone else's hand controls, when you order this motor, it comes with either the matching hard wired hand control or the matching wireless remote control.

Below are what the ports on the old style Oki Motor looked like. The plugs on the accessories that plug into this motor will not plug into the new style Oki Motor. You must upgrade to one of the new motors.

MOTORS CONTROLLED BY THE HARD WIRED HAND CONTROLS

Source 1:
There is only one version available form this company. The hand control plugs into a circular port on the side of the motor. There are no massage motor ports on this version.


Source 2:
This is the same motor as their wireless version, the difference is that the hand control plugs into the port where the antenna plugs into on the wireless version. The wiring in the port on this motor is different from the above motor so  you will get a new matching hand control when you order this motor.  Though it is the same motor as from my other source, it is less expensive overall as you do not have to buy a separate matching hand control.

Below is a picture of the round port for the hard wired hand control or the antenna box for the wireless remote control on the motor from source 2.

INTERIOR OF AN OKI MOTOR

This is what the interior of an Oki motor looks like.  The white push block is for the head and the black push block is for the foot. You access this by removing all of the screws on the outside of the motor housing and lifting the housing apart. The push blocks are just pressing lightly into the housing and will lift out very easily.

This is the circuit board inside an Oki motor. If I have a used housing available it is usually because the circuit board went bad. If you buy the housing form me because you broke yours, you will have to remove the bad circuit board and replace it with the good board from your broken housing. Be sure you note where all of the wires go before you disconnect them. I do sometimes have good circuit boards that come from a motor with a broken housing.

This is what the push block inside the Oki motor looks like. The one at the head is usually white and the one at the foot is usually black. Because the motors turn the same direction, they usually have reverse threads from each other. You can use the one from the foot in the head but you have to reverse the motor leads so that the motor turns in the right direction.
