Faulty Canon fs4000us - Please help!

I recently purchased a Canon fs4000us 35mm scanner second hand, but it turned out faulty:
The official Canon service in Hungary said that the "motor turns out from its axle" - occasional error, sometimes its working for a couple of scans, but mostly results a corrupted scan session, and the unit hangs up with a loud noise.
The part could be replaced, but they dont have any spares, so they claimed its unrepairable.

The seller seems to be wanished, so I cant get my money back..

Can anyone recommend me an online shop, where I can still buy a spare motor for the fs4000, refurbished/working parts from disassembled machines would be fine also.

Please, if you can help me, share your ideas!

Thank you!
