Question about Crafts & Hobbies
Try to find the Brushes that run the motor...You may have to remove the Body.... There are many variations to the Mounting some have Screws others have clips you push or pull Once the body is Off..look for the brushes.It will be a small square of Brass, and inside will be a spring and a block of Carbon with a wire attached,.. The Carbon Brush runs on the Brass section of the Motor with the spring holding it in... Both have a Covering Clip.
Look at the covering clip first.. is it pushing hard enough against the Brush.... if notbend so it does... If it DOES... then take the briush out, and run the end that goes against the rotor on a fine file or sand paper... What you want here is to clean the tip
Once the tip is clean and th Spring Cover is set... replave everything and try again....
IF it does not work I would suggest taking it back to where you got it and ask them to fix it...
But I would guess this is your problem.....
One other thing.... While you had it apart, I would check everything, giving moving Parts a drop of oil...
Other than this I am not sure what to suggest.
The Pic is of a pair of Brushes so you know what you are looking for... I can give you Pics of other parts but not knowing exactly what motor it is... I could put you off track with it.
