Default Lenco actuator?

So I'm going to be replacing my 3rd Lenco actuator in 3 years, WTF. The actuator runs but the gears are stripped.
Is this the norm with Lenco? This is my first boat with this brand. Any ideas why this keeps happening? Thanks.

The gears are likely striped because someone engaged the switch while the actuator was fully up or down. Its a very small electric motor with plastic gears.
