    Two of the most likely things on a cable operated pump that could cause the problem are either the lift/lower cable is worn and/or in need of an adjustment or the motor is weak due to the motor itself being shot or the power cables going to it are loose or corroded which in turn wont allow the motor to get full battery voltage thus making the motor weak on power, since it takes much less power/effort from the motor to angle the blade as it does to lift it.
