I've went through all of the steps here:

How to disassemble the propulsion wheels of the LEGO/DUPLO train engine base part# 28743 drivetrain?

which was a great learning exercise but unfortunately it seems like the actual motor itself has kicked the bucket. I can hear it activating when I try to push start it and kick it off from Bluetooth. It even works for a half a second.

Any idea where you can get a spare or even people who have been able to go in and fix it?

Bricklink is often the best place to find individual LEGO and Duplo parts. The 28743c01 "Duplo, Train Locomotive Base Push & Go Motor" is currently available 18 times from $17.04 to $53.99. This is perfect if you just want the one part and you don't want to deal with other new parts.

Bricklink also has new-in-the-box sets that include this part such as the 10874-1 Steam Train for $41.08. Getting some extra parts and having it all be new-in-the-box sounds like a better deal to me. This motor was in a total of 3 sets, so you may prefer one of the other two Duplo trains that have this part.
