My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
I have seen in some cases where the masts have had to be drilled out carefully or the mast and motor replaced as an assembly to correct this here.If this has not been checked to see if this needs done to correct this here this needs done.
Thanks Pete
