The Knex website has building help for this problem. There answer is as follows:

Make sure all rods and connectors are fully hooked together, especially the blue and gray connectors. Even one peice not fully hooked together can twist the model just enough to jam the gears. (You may have it hooked together correctly prior to jam problems so it is good to check since I found a loose on holding the motor.) The chain links need to all be attached in the same direction, and fully hooked. The chain also needs to be on the tower with the hooks facing down and in as the chain runs on the outside of the tower. (Chain should be outside on the front and inside in the back with the 5 yellow bar side in the front.) Check that all gears are positioned correctly according to the instructions and the teeth facing the correct way. If you are still unable to get the seat to drop, you may remove the top yellow cross rod that the chain runs over - the model will also work with this piece removed.

I did all of these steps with my son and his still had trouble dropping all the time. It still seems light so the seat didn't have enough weight to drop with gravity during the non-moving cycle of the orange half gear. We decided to tape on 2 marble passengers to see if that helped. It did!!! When searching for other solutions, I noticed a UTube video that added people also so this seems to be a common solution. Try it or some other light weight added and see if it solves your problem.

Would like to disasemble my swing 'n rock but I can not find the manual-

There are several types of these products out there. I found one that seems to fit the description of your product. It is the Smart Stages 3-in-1 Rocker Swing (also called the Swing N Rocker).
The instruction manual can be downloaded at the following site:
After following the link above, click the link under "Instruction Sheets" (P5448: Smart Stages™ 3-in-1 Rocker Swing (Walmart).
This will open a new window. You will then click the word "here". (To download the manual, click here.)
It will once again open a new window. This time the window will contain the instruction sheet in pdf format. You can save it to your computer for future reference.

I just bought a huge bag of K'nex pieces for my Grandson who loves to build things at a yard sale. It didn't come with any plans to build anything. Where can I get the plans? Thanks Vic

If you don't mind paying for directions you can get them direct from K'nex here:
The book is REALLY good (I have a nephew who has it and loves it!) and the prices are decent.

You can also download build directions for free from:
