There is typically a small rubber belt or plastic gear that goes between the tray motor and the tray. Most modern units have the plastic gear. I would bet that it is missing a tooth or stripped its teeth or possibly fell off completely. You should be able to manually push the drawer in. To open it, there should be a small hole near the tray into which you can push a straightened-out paper clip.

f the tray won't open or close properly, check the belt for dirt or
wear. Then check the tray for misalignment. If needed, remove, clean,
lubricate, and reinstall the tray following the instructions in the
God bless you

Testimonial: "I took it apart, I really didn't do anything other than blow some air into it and used some alcohol with cotton swab on a few of the parts, put together and its works, I can't say I did anything other than having it apart, unplugging & plugging back in to test the door, I think one of those plastic wheels I cleaned with alcohol may have fixed it, can't say for sure."
