I've noticed on mine that it occassionally needs a manual-boost after it has sat for a while. Mine is a 94, and if I put my hand in the middle (on the latch) and push gently but firmly up, the system kicks in and starts moving on it's own after that.

Less than ideal, and next summer I'll have a shop look at it, but for now it's "good enough" to get me through the winter.
