Well I got it all open but the problem wasn't evident. Inside the
white plastic part of the motor assembly I found a stacked pair of
microswitches (each to kill the motor at either extreme end of travel)
and a rod-and-coil-type electromagnetic plunger which appears to move
to engage BOTH switches at the closed position. No scorch marks and
all wiring connected, including the very fine ends of the copper coil.
The lower microswitch does not work but the odds of getting a
replacement seem impossible.

Thanks anyway, I guess I'll just live with it until I get a line on a
cheap replacement for the whole thing (or get a manual crank

Thanks again,
