Question about 1993 Saturn SL
Most likely you have some teeth stripped off on the regulator and the crank or lift motor has nothing to work with when it gets to that point. Get a new regulator off ebay for less than a hundred bucks, keep away from a dealer, then take your regulator to a glass shop, again keep away from a dealer on this, which does car glass and pay them about $50 to replace the regulator for you.

SOURCE: 2003 350Z window problem
I have the same problem, It belive is the window regulator motor, I open the door panel and kick the motor couple time, then press the switch if works. My window work after that, but the problem came back. I need a window motor . But its a temp solution if you have some mechanical skills.

I respectfully disagree.
WD-40 contains volatile ketones that will damage the rubber.
Pure silicone spray is the ticket here.
What you have going wrong is a bad "positive temperature coefficient thermister" in the window motor. It cannot be replaced, it is part of the motor assembly. You are going to probably need to replace the motor in the near future. The PTC understands a slight overheat condition, and when the motor "drags", or goes slow, the PTC opens up like a circuit breaker. Then, after it cools off, it closes, and the motor works again.
Lube the rubbers with silicone, and consider replacing the motor.
