Exclamation Strange Window Motor Problem?

Hey everyone I have a strange problem...This summer my passenger stopped working. I thought it was the motor because when I would use the button it would make this faint "er" sound for about half a second since it was up I just left it.... But this spring when it got cold around 25 to 38 degrees the window started working again....but today it was around 70 degrees and it wouldnt work it would only do the "er" sound again.

Does anyone have ANY idea as to why this would be?

Maybe it somehow gets off the track when it's warmer.

Definitely sounds like a motor on its way out! My son's girlfriend had the same problem, window worked in the winter, but not in the summer.......replaced the motor for her & that did the trick. Again.....my sister-inlaw had the same issue, replaced the motor & that was the problem!
