I have heard some stories about axi throwing magnets.
1. Have you removed the magnet if so there are probly more
2. the magnets are normaly mounted N S N S there should be a even number 2 magnets for ever 3 teeth on the strator.
3. you have to get another small magnet and put it at the end
of a pice of plastic where you have a N and a S on each side
then rotateing the stick you trun from N to S marking one red
and one black maybe with thin tape .
4. holding the magnet stick C what ones are on each side of the
loose one removed. the patterin will be N S N ? N S N or reverse
this order is most inportant marking it on paper.
5. Know the others mark the ? missing where it will be in the correct order.
6. Then scape away the old exposie and without exposie put the
one back tempory and put the bell back on the hub to C if it will
have clearance to rotate.
7. If the bell/can rotates ok the take it appart and clean it good
and maybe even rough it up with sandpaper or dremal took
where a thin coat of exposie will hold good. CU

You can call L.A. Johnston at Hobby Lobby Int. to help you out. It seems the first run or two of AXI motors used a different glue on the magnets and they have changed their process on newer motors.

L.A. can assist you in either repairing your motor or have you send it into Hobby Lobby for repair or replacement. Hobby Lobby also has a guarantee on the newer versions so it would be worth a call or e-mail to them.

Good luck!
