I had a similar problem with my halo vacuum first you have to unscrew the plate over the brush then completlety take everything apart including taking the handle off you have to use a long allen wrench to get to some of the screws once you get the handle off there are screws under the handle you have to be sure to get those then open it up it should pull open easily if you have all the screws out be sure you label them so you know where to put them back once you get to the motor unplug the black and red plugs take the motor out use a small screw driver to stick through the hole in the motor to align the gears then knock the gear on the outside in about 1/2 an inch it should go in easily then put everything back it should only take about 4 hours to fix have fun
