    I removed the bottom cover , the motor is not locked. I can't move the shaft slowly with my hand to get it unstuck but it gets jammed and it stops spinning making a humming sound.

    Is it bearing ?

    Ive tested it while the lid was locked and all magnets were properly aligned. The unit inside is very clean and minimum used. If I reset and unplug the fuse at the bottom and attach it again , it spins few times and shaft gets stuck again

    Can you move the shaft with your hand or not. Reading what you wrote didn't make sense.

    If the shaft stops spinning and even with the machine off you cant get it to move, the motor itself could be the issue.

    If that is not the case, then it would make sense what fixbear said. Perhaps despite the fact the safety points are all still in place it is not registering.

    Once the shaft is stuck , when I apply a little pressure I can free it and starts moving again by hand and as I continue to spin it there is a point it gets stuck again and than you can get it to spin with a little pressure again.

    James2021;

    This machine has a belt driven shaft with 3 ball bearings. You probably have a broken or rusty bearing on that shaft. This manual has a breakdown for it on page 11

    I did order the bearing , I just have never changed it. Is there any service available to mail in the unit and the part and they would replace it ?

    James, assuming you're located in the U.S, here's a link to help you locate a service company in your area. Call around to see who can do in-shop repairs (not all companies do that).
