Do you have a 'Dummy' tape/fixture?

Can you turn the worm GEAR on the loading motor by hand? 1-1-2 #1
Can you apply DC voltage to loading motor? 1-1-2 #2 (Be sure to unplug motor so it is out of circuit)
If numbers don't correlate, both manuals I'm using are at ElektroTanya.
You may find a crack in the nylon press-on worm gear (from left to right) that allows the motor metal shaft to spin freely when the mechanism has only partially loaded. Even if you can't 'see' it, IF you can fully load the mechanism by turning the worm gear by hand, that would pretty much prove it.
