suppose best thing to do is remove main body, strip upper cover from floor assembly, refit main body - switch on and use eyes n ears. does sound like motor by your description...

If it was assembled it can be disassembled - if we can't repair it then it probably isn't worth repairing !

I have one in at the moment that does the above and it requires a motor .
 Best thing to do is remove the head cover (four screws) then remove the belt cover next to the motor housing,then the motor cover is secured by another four screws .
 Put the body back on and run for a couple of seconds and look at the motor if it sparks it would need replacing.

Hope this helps .
