3051S Fantastic Vent won't open!

Anybody else had this problem? Is this just a sticky seal or something on the roof? It's been crazy hot around here but it's been working fine in my driveway up until this week. I had it open last weekend no problem but this weekend it starts then stops.

I had a sticky seal for the first year or so on one of my three powered vents, which required shutting it off, letting the motor restore things to a sealed condition, and then trying again. Only once or twice did I have resort to manually turning the crank to break it loose.

The second season, the problem pretty much went away, as I suspect the seal weathered a bit from being exposed, and became less tacky.
