Hi; I used the openni function xnUSBSendControl to move the KInect's motor up and down, and now I'm looking to turn that motor in the left and right. Thanks

There is no motor inside the kinect to control the left/right direction. There is only one motor, and it is for controlling the up/down direction. If you look at Step 5 of ifixit's Kinect Teardown, you can see the single motor.
