Motor works and turns blades but only when empty or nearly empty.
I'm trying to get inside but seems like the blades are not designed to be taken off? is there a knack maybe? it seems like the motor is mounted on the base and the side casing would slide off if i could get the blades off.
The model number is F203, it is 200W.

I don't have one, but inspect the shaft, it looks like there is a key on the shaft, then inspect the inside of the blade where it goes on top of the shaft, see if it looks like the shaft has spun out the blade and this is why it's not spinning.
Remove the blade and the container, then turn on and see if the shaft is spinning, it should be most are a direct drive.
So now if the shaft is spinning, that most likely means that the blade hole is broke where it sets on top of the shaft.
Look closely at the inside of the blade, you should see some type of damage like the groves are worn, I hate to see you buy one and it was the shaft that wore, but usually the blade will go first.
If motor hums and does not spin, then motor has gone bad. As motors get older, the motor begin to slow down. Motors are designed to pull-in cool air across spinning coils inside the rotor. Once the motor slows down, the motor no longer gets cool air, so it gets hotter, and then overheats, and then rotor no longer spins. In years past, motors were taken to local electric shop for rewinding Then the motor went back into service. Today, the motor is thrown in the landfill unless recycled at local scrap metal dealer. It's a waste that we no longer have small repai9r shops to fix consumer goods like fans, and instead the economy causes us to import another motor because it's cheaper.
The engine in this machine seems to be powerful. If you can remove the belt from the pulley that drives the blade. Try turning the pulley buy hand. If it turns tight or not at all this is your problem. The unit that is the pulley to blade assembly is seized or ready to seize. Sometimes they are designed to be taken apart and repaired, and sometimes they are not. Did you check for a grease fitting within the pulley to blade unit? I would like to hear how this works out for you. Best of luck.
