Alright, so I replaced mine on Wednesday. When I spun it by hand it made a weird clicking sound; looking through the vent holes, there's a spring unwound in there that's rubbing on the commutator and making the noise. I guess one of the brushes got knocked out of sorts somehow.

Maybe I'll take it apart for a full failure analysis this weekend.
