Motor should have its own internal breaker protection. Check the motor connection for consistent power to make sure everything is okay from that end. When the motor doesn't work, perhaps there is another circuit breaker involved. There is a circuit breaker (self setting I believe) for the power windows and power seats normally, located in the dash area somewhere. Don't know that the wipers have one.

I would suggest disconnecting the mechanism from the motor to see if you can get the motor to work consistently. If so, then lubricate the mechanism well and give it a try.
I suspect worn joints in the mechanism took a large enough hit to cause them to jam up or to bend slightly to cause them to jam up.
