Problems with Kenwood Excelon KDC-X789 ejecting CD

Text:

I bought this head unit on an online auction site that shall not be named; it's immaterial.  I got a good deal on it because the eject function is a bit dodgy.  Sometimes it will spit it out all the way, sometimes halfway, sometimes I have to cycle it several times for it to do anything.  The eject motor is running when I do it, it just seems as if it's not getting traction on the disc.  Can anyone help me out here?

It's not limited to only one disc, and sometimes it will spit one particular disc out, and sometimes the same disc will get stuck, as it were.
