Restart failed/incomplete user mailbox move in Exchange 2013

I have a single user for whom the migration stopped.  I got the error "homemdb is not writeable on recipient" and I think that's resolved, but how do I restart the mailbox move process.  Every time i try to start it, it starts and then quickly finishes with no completion.  I don't even think it's running.  It says "0 of 0 moved."

Very urgent, thanks!

If you want urgent, call Microsoft support and pay their fee. This site is not suitable for "urgent" requests.

Clear the move mailbox request and start a fresh one.

Noted on the urgent status.

When I look at recipients > migration there are no batches with a status of synching, so I don't think there's one currently running to clear.  If I get you correctly it sounds like the move is in a pending state.  I'm not sure of the command to clear that pending state.  Could you provide the command?

get-moverequest will show you all requests that are currently on the system.
It may well be complete or failed, and you need to remove it that way.
