Tony, the only thing I disagree with you on, is the window stop. There is a window stop in the window regulator. It is also adjustable. Allan

The first thing I'd be checking is the pins/slider tracks that guide the 

window up and down. It sounds to me like one of them are broken. If the 

window is held in square, there is no reason that it won't line up at the 

top end of it's travel with the frame. There is no "stop" in the mechanism, 

just that it runs into the top of the frame and seals up. If you hold the 

button down on the other windows, you will notice that the motors are still 

getting power, but cannot push past the sealing point because the frame is 

stronger than the window motor. That is also why there are springs on either 

side of the window winder mechanism.
