If it still does not spin, then the transmission may be faulty and a replacement will be required. This guide will show you how to remove and replace the transmission. Transmission Replacement

Faulty Motor ¶ 

A faulty motor can result in the chuck having no spin or slow spin. The motor becoming faulty can be caused by overloading the motor or the brushes within the motor wearing out.
