Sounds like a bad connection somewhere. I would take it to a authorized dealer for repair if it's still under warranty. Can get a bit tricky to repair yourself unless you're comfortable with soldering.

Hi!
Here's a schematic for your motor:
Max 70
My guess is you are correct in it being the brushes.
More times than not the motor will have leaked from in behind the prop are. What happens is a peice of monofilament line floating around in the water gets caught behind the prop and cuts the seals up, allowing water intrusion.
To remedy you'll need to clean up the entire bottom motor and replace the brushes, bearing and seal kit too. Clean up the commutator (copper area, now probably black in color, where the brushes ride on) with fine emory paper and you should be good to go!
Best of luck
Mike
