Hi Dirtyleeds - if you posted up the exact model and year members may be able to assist.
As far as I know some sytems have an overload device whereby if it detects unusual resistance it either stops or goes into reverse. This is for safety reasons in the event of ice and snow and also if someone of brave or stupid enough to stick their head out. Other causes of resistance could be the mechanism is seized.
