[amsat-bb] G5500 Rotor Issue

I bought a used G5500 rotor that the previous owner had stored in a closet for several years and hooked up the power.  The azimuth rotor is functioning as specified but the elevation side has a problem.  When pressing either the up or down switches on the controller, I hear a hum from the rotor, indicating it is getting power, but nothing moves.  Where should I start looking?
