5-7 hours/day? on a $35 tool? what brand (I’ll buy one just like it!).

try to blow the motor housing clear with an air-gun but I suspect you knocked a brush loose. with that amount of use they probably wore down to the point where the tension spring was struggling to hold it.

if your time isn’t worth anything, try to fix it (but you’ll be shocked at the cost of replacement parts on any of the major brands)...otherwise, get a new one.
