Hey Guys,

currently I have a WD20NMVW-11AV3S2 drive on my table. Client said, the drive wasn't dropped, it just stopped to work. The drive made the typical sounds like the heads were on the platter. I opened the drive, but everything was OK. But the platters were very hard to rotate. But the platters rotated without any scratchy sound. I also wasn't able to see anything wrong with the drive.

As always, I transferred the ROM to a SATA Board and tried to fire up the drive. But it failed. Still the same, the spindle does not rotate. Does anyone has any idea, what it could be?

Problems with the bearing? Maybe I should heat the drive up a little bit?

Poor client...
Stop what you're doing and consult someone who knows how to deal with this case. I would have said 'respectfully' but I think it's already too late.

Yeah, put it in the oven at 350 ºC for 20 minutes and it will unfreeze the spindle!
