You can sue for breach of contract (either the purchase contract and/or any warranty that may have accompanied the motor purchase). You can do this in small claims court (you are looking for the cost of repair for the motor as opposed to the full cost of replacement, so this usually will bring it in under the small claims limit (if you are living in Fl, or if you choose to sue in Fl where the Defendant is located, the small claims cap is at $5,000.00)).Short of filing a lawsuit, you can try to mediate the dispute with them - contact your local bar association and request referrals to mediators, a third party neutral can often help you reach a mutually agreeable resolution. Use the bar association's referrals to contact a mediator or two, the mediator will then contact the other party to set up a mediation session, and you can go from there - hopefully resulting in a formal or written settlement agreement, and save yourself the time and expense of litigation. Most mediators can set up a mediation session for you via teleconference if the parties are not living in the same area.
