Your main motor is hard to turn.. Check your Drum unit. Pull it out then on the back side you'll find a small agitator gear then tried to turn it. If it doesn't rotate then you might have to change its paddle gears, idle gear or that development sleeve is stuck. Hope it helps.

This could be a very bad code its "main motor lock", either you have too much load on the drive unit ( paper stuck, locked up pcu or fuser ) and maybe bad BICU board.
-Carl, please let me know if this helps.

You have a main motor overload. This can be caused by a defect in the photoconductor unit. Try putting an old photoconductor unit. If you still can not run the engine is broken
