Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll do my best to help. Let's get started and see what we can do.Most likely the bell control on the end of the motor. How old is the unit? Possibly under warranty. THis bell controller is pretty expensive.
Troubleshooting requires a special tester as the motor is high voltage powered, but low voltage or dc voltage controlled.

If not under warranty and you choose to buy the tester (About 80 bucks), I will be glad to guide you in troubleshooting.
