Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! You may have a few different things going on. It could be a mechanical issue with a damaged component binding. It coudl be a hydraulic issue. If you still hear the pump motor running when the top stops then most likely the system is low due to a leak. If it completely stops operation and especially if you see an error message in the instrument cluster then the power top control module is seeing an issue somewhere in the system that could cause damage and is stopping operation. The module watches a series of microswitches, you could have a bad switch, wiring issue, or the module itself could be the issue. The first step in diagnosing the issue will be to see what fault codes are setting in the module.

I can hear the motor still running when the top stops. There is no error message.

What are possible ways to repair this?

What you'll need to do is check the fluid level and you should find it's low. If it's low then you'll need to inspect the lines and cylinders for leakage. most likely one of the lines or cylinders is leaking.
