Wingard aerial problem

Here is a question for all you knowledgeable folk output there!
Our Wingard aerial on a 2008 AC Tradition has an electronic controller which has four buttons.
When we bought from a dealer I was told that the control unit needed replacing as it would not raise. The control unit being no longer made they had sourced a new one that a spares supplier had got in stock.
This was wired up and success it worked!
A few weeks later it would not raise again, but if you lifted the aerial up slowly the other functions worked to rotate or return to travel position.
An engineer came to look at it whilst I was away and refitted the old unit again and it worked for a while again!
Now it is showing the same fault again.
The aerial is well lubricated.
Has anybody come across this problem?

This is just a guess, but since power for the antenna comes from the controller it's possible the cable has some corroded connections reducing the power to the antenna.
