    I have a Waterproof 2075 servo and all the gears are good but the motor it's self slips. I took the servo apart and I can hold the axle coming out of the motor and the motor still goes but no movement. Is this common, because this has never happen to me and I have never seen or heard something like this. I am guesting I will need to buy a new one since you can't really get into those motors.
    Thanks for any help.

    What Vehicle is it in ? an upgrade to something more beefy might be required.

    Possibly Brushes worn out on Servo Motor? Maybe a problem with the potentiometer. Maybe pop the back off and look for any possible shorts. Most likely it's just time for a new one.
