Mine had trouble and I blew the motor trying to make it work. The problem may be the switch, as it was with mine. They can be taken apart - search for the forum item that mentions how to do that. I also found the place where the wires from inside joined the wires from outside was poor so I replaced those joiners. Mine seems to be working well but I also bought a replacement switch of a different make to keep on hand.
