make sure you got plenty of silicon lube in the runners else the window tends to tilt a bit (which makes the motor work much harder) and not run up and down easily as when the window sits straight

are you saying the button stick? Or asking if they could be sticking?

If they ARE sticking, that could be it...driving the motor when the window is fully up or down won't do it any good...

Clean the window switches - they arc and soot up, particularly the up contacts.
