Has anyone else had issues with any of their windows no longer going down?

If so, what was the problem with your window? Did you get it fixed by Kia? If so, how long did it take.

I ask because my left backseat window no longer goes down, as of today. I press the window down button and I hear the actuator inside the door make noise but the window won't go down. My other three windows work just fine though.

FYI, I have a 2019 GT2 AWD.

Have an appointment with the nearest Kia dealer in November to look at the window. I will be charged a $130 diagnostics fee unless it is determined it can be claimed under warranty. Considering its a 2019 with less than 12,000 miles I'd assume everything is under warranty, right?

Bumper to bumper lasts till five years or 60K miles. A broken power window is not part of normal wear and tear, so, covered by warranty.

Of course, I take my car into the dealership this morning and the window works perfectly fine again. On multiple occasions in the last 3 weeks I tried to roll the window down and it wouldn't work and I would just hear the window motor. So since the dealer couldn't replicate the problem they said they can't make a warranty claim and to come back if it happens again.

My 2022 GT1, 2 months old rear driver side window makes a loud humming/buzzing sound when going up. I will have to make an appointment to take it in for repairs. Bummer that others have issues with the same window.

My driver's side rear window is doing exactly the same thing. On first visit they were like 'reset the master switch' all good now. Few days later stopped working again. Now a motor is on order. 2nd time hopefully will be the charm but this is Kia service we are talking about here so who knows.

the humming and buzzing starts first, next it will quit working for a few days, then try again, hum and buzz, quit working again. i was supposed to get a new motor put in but i missed my appt. i do not like dropping off my car to service.

What part?

EDIT - I later read you were supposed to get a new motor installed.

Curious how "resetting a master switch" would make it work for a few days. Odd
