I have 2 skylights in my sunroom. One of them will no longer open up. When you go to open both of them up, the first one opens just fine, but the second one starts, then stops.
I have no idea where to even begin figuring out how to solve this problem without calling in an electrician.
Any suggestions?

Apparently, they are controlled electrically, right?
Are they controlled from separate switches or the same switch?
If they're both on the same switch, the problem is not electrical.
Is it possible to manually move the one that's failing? It is probably binding.

Yes, they are electic and both controlled by the same controller.
The 2nd one sounds like it is going to open, but nothing happens.
We are wondering if the sensor could be the problem.
