The first step to troubleshooting this is to eliminate the AP from the circuit. Unplug the power cord. Open the head of the motor and then disconnect the AP circuit boat from the system. then plug in the cord and deploy the unit. We are looking to see if the problem is still there or of it is not not spinning. If it is not, the AP was the fault and it needs to be replaced.
