Hello and Welcome...

My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help / advise...

Sorry to see you have had a wait.... The usual fault here with these is debris in the mechanism or- even a bent / damaged part of the mechanism,... you need to very carefully insect the mechanism of the roof for the above.... anything like that will cause this..

Check on this if you haven't already and let me know how you get on..

Normally if its an electronic fault / switch / sensor etc, you will have a light on the switch / flashing and or beeping - but as you haven't mentioned that at all - then Im thinking it has to be mechanical issue as above - Let me know how you get on..

Im very pleased to have helped you - Do let me know if you need anything more --
