Had an issue with mine last year. I used a impact driver/drill to open it a few turns and that seemed to fix it. Worked normally the rest of the season. I guess i will see if it needs a jump start this spring.

What model awning is it?? If it's a Dometic 9200 with the linear style motor in the end of the roller, it could be seized. When I had the same sound from mine, I had to replace the motor.

Anybody know how to manually extend or retract these, I did a bit of searching but am not finding info on manually operating as it is a CV power awning? Thanks

Just a note of information... (I see you have 3 posts)
Forum members using the mobile app DO NOT see individual post titles.
Your information of your awning being a Dometic 895 would not be seen by anyone using the app since that info was in the post title. It is always best to put as much information in the body of the post as possible.

Have you checked for power through the switch and at the awning with a multimeter? Knowing whether you have voltage at the proper components is the first step in diagnosing.
