Lippert Electric Jacks

My rear electric jacks are stuck in the up position. When I try to put them down I can hear the motor run, but the jacks don't move? Easy fix or do I need to replace the jacks?

They might just be stuck. It happened a few times on mine. The motor would try to start and then would pop an automatically resetting fuse and everything would stop.

I ultimately had to use the manual crank and force it to turn. Once I got past the first inch or two, the motor could do its thing. Once it was down, I lubed the hell out of the "worm screw" or whatever that cross-bar is called. Ran it up and down and sprayed dry lube on it liberally.
