If the motor is trying to open the cover but won't then the cover may be stuck to the rubber gasket. Ours does from time to time telling me it's time to clean the gaskets and then smear a light coat of Vaseline around the gasket.

Fantastik folks recommended Aerospace 303 for the gasket. Vaseline will collect dirt.

Mine sticks from time to time. Clean the gasket with a soft rag, and spray with silicone spray on gasket and lid.

Not stuck. The knob just won't rotate in the open direction. Maybe miswired. Back to dealer next week. ☹️
