    Pull the prop if you haven't already and check for fishing line. Also try to run it with it off. If it still isn't working it has to be internal.

    prolly brushes. mine are dirty, im litterally about to walk outside and clean mine lol. they are pretty simple to deal with. just open it up and clean it out and just inspect it. whatever is wrong is obviously mechanical. so maybe something small plastics keeps getting lodged in there...
