How do you fix a broken snow globe fan?

My boyfriend bought me a Nightmare Before Christmas snow globe from the Disney Store and past the 60 day return policy. When I took it out the box, installed the batteries, and switched it on, the light came on, but the fan did not; however, the motor to the fan was making a ''grinding'' noise. How do I go about fixing it with no way to access it or replacing it?

Look closely at the fan blade, it probably got a little bent and is rubbing. You can bend it a bit and free it.

I have a disney snow globe that has a rusted music box and the fluid is low in the glode. How should it be repaired?

i hope my advice will help you. What I would do is the first thing is take it to a ceremic workshop they have all clock parts music box parts phone parts as when people make these they sell them the parts and show them how to put them in if that dosent work or you are not near a ceremic workshop try a clock or a watch maker they will take a look and might be able to repair it. If not I would then go out look for a music box find the company that made it or the company that makes snow globes just type it into google manafactures of snow globes or who makes snow globes and send it off to them but call them first and ask them if they could fix it for you they will usually say yes either drop it into the repairs area or send it to them but you will have to call first.
Hope that helps
