As Nsl says you need to get inside the gearbox, which usually means taking the whole hinge arm off of the rail. Once inside there is a very simple clutch mechanism with a 10mm nut which alters the strength of grip – use common sense and don’t just graunch it up “tight as”. There’s a reason that it shouldn’t take much effort to stop its motion.
I take that it hasn’t recently had a new pair of gas springs? I have found in the past that a brand new non-adjustable pair can be too strong causing the motor to slip, or it could have been that the supplier sent down some which have been gassed up to the incorrect pressure.
