Windshield night shade problem

Went to put night shade up went up about 3 inches put back down won’t go up.
Tried holding little red button on shade left side and pushing up button but still won’t go up. If I hold button in it beeps about 5 times and the when I push the up button it beeps once put won’t go up. I can hear it click like it wants to go up but won’t.
Any ideas are appreciated
Thanks

Nope. I get the beeps but shade won’t go up.
Motor bad maybe? I can hear click when push up button but won’t go up or down

Did you ever identify the fix?

My front shade button seems to be on the fritz. I will need to take apart and make sure that the connections are clean/lubricated.

Have you tried doing that?

You probably need a new motor. Mine went while on warranty. They do break down. Call the manufacturer. Mine was made by Irvine Shade & Doors, I'm sure yours were sourced in the same place. Give them a call at 574-522-1446.

They are very helpful but keep in mind, the pandemic is hurting everyone...

Good luck!

Yes. That’s what I suspect. Thanks for the phone number. Irvine is what I have.

I have a 2016 Tuscany XTE 40 GQ My windsheild night shade and sun shade were doing the same thing. Had the motor replaced with warranty. Still did it, but only occasionally. Finally noticed that if I was hooked up to shore power it didn't stop part of the way up. I don't know why. I still keep the velcro straps I used to hold the shade up after I rolled it up. Not convinced completely but it held true last week and so far this week. Try it while connected to shore power.
