Electric Ariel Fault

My turn to ask for help now, I've search but can't find an answer to this issue.

Today my electric Aerial on retracting the motor keeps running whilst it's gully down even though it can't go any further. I tried raising and lowering etc and ended up have to pull wires to stop it.

Any ideas in what might be causing the this fault and how to fix it. Looking at the motor it looks fairly new.

It is probably an electrical error in the arial unit.
There are some mechanical switches in the unit that switch the power to the motor depending if the arial is up or down and if the 12V is applied from the radio unit
The switches are on the printed board circuit you can in the picture in the attached link.
