Welcome to the forums.

The motor has an automatic reset thermal overload that trips if motor is stalled and power is kept on it. That overload makes a fairly distinct click when it trips.

It sounds like your window mechanism is jammed.
If it's a cable drive system then the cable may have fallen off one of the pulleys.
