How to repair a touchless garbage lid?

Recently my parents’ itouchless garbage lid stopped opening automatically and I was wondering if there might be a possible fix for this. I tried to find videos online but didn’t have luck. Basically it seems the sensor works but the lid won’t open; it makes a noise like it’s trying but can’t . I suspect it’s the motor but not sure how to fix this easily.

I’d rather fix it than them having to buy a new one.

Has this thing got a brand name and model number?


It's called an Itouchless garbage can not sure what the model number is.


i checked the 'parts' section of their website and i think it's the IT13MX model. They don't have very many models it seems
