Is there a procedure you could send me an attachment of? Can get a used motor for $40 and haven't found a good labor price in zip 48912.

Hold the switch to go down. Then bang on the panel. If the motor turns on youll know its the motor.

Motors dont go bad much but overheat sensors do. You can dissasemble motor and bypass sensor and it should work again.
