The declination motor gear is either not engaging, or the dec clutch is broken. I would return the telescope if possible-- the repair could cost more than the telescope is worth (in just shipping charges) back to Meade.

Assembly & operating instructions for a Sear's Refactor Telescope Model 24191.


Sorry the only thing available from Sears is this parts list-- not a manual.
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/brands-products/Sears-Parts/Toy-Parts?Type=Telescope

I suspect this is a small REFRACTOR style telescope. You may want to download a Meade telescope manual which is similar to your telescope. They all assemble in a similar fashion.

Look under the REFRACTOR header for one that is similar to your telescope:

Paddle on the meade 60mm refractor stops after 2 seconds and goes dark as if there is no power. the light on the panel stays lit, the batteries are charged. what would cause this?


Several things-- a bad paddle-- a bad cable-- most likely. Meade's repair phone number is located on their web site under Customer Support-- Contact

Tasco 9T 234 x Astronomical telescope


That is a 60mm refractor style telescope on an equitorial mount. Meade has one that is very similar. They all go together in a similar fashion.

Look under REFRACTOR and download a Meade manual that is similar to your telescope.

http://www.meade.com/manuals/m285/index.html This one looks very similar.
