I ran into the same problem with my awnings yesterday. After retracting them in the morning they would not come back out in the evening.
Today I pulled the customer control panel apart to look for voltage on the back of the switches. Neither one of them had the 12v power available. So, that means either a blown fuse of bad/broken wire/connection somewhere.
In the basement on the curbside, there is an access panel. Behind it are a bank of 15 AMP fuses.
Not sure why picture is turned sideways. The left side of the picture is the TOP and the right side is the bottom. I found the THIRD fuse from the top was blown
In the picture above, it is shown as the top fuse (it's been pulled from the circuit). But! Keep in mind that it is really the third from the top. Try checking and changing that fuse and see if it is your problem. It was an easy fix.
Also, note that I added two spare fuses at the bottom of the terminal strips. There were three empty slots on mine (seen at the right side of the above pictures). Nothing like trying to locate a fuse when it is raining or worse outside. Having them handy will be a time saver in the future.
