That up and down motion is the difference between park position and running position. Sound like a loose connection to me. Read the manual about what activates the movement from park to run.

That up/down motion is normal at start, from memory it has something to do with freeing the blades from the glass (or other way around) useful in cold climates.

I guess mine has never moved in the past, even with this new motor. I took the motor and assembly off to tighten things up and must have put it on slightly different and now I'm getting this up/down motion on startup. Personally it's annoying but mostly just want to make sure i am not damaging anything with it the way it is now. I'll probably remove the assembly and see if I can figure it out.

I'll take a look at the manual and see what I can figure out.
