I agree it is probably a problem with the wiring harness. Last time I fixed one I couldn't find where to buy one. Had to make it myself. If you make one be sure to get the wire that is very flexible and not the standard plastic insulation. I tried the standard plastic and it wasn't flexible enough for the movement of the helicopter. I forget the material that the insulation was made of in the wires I used but it was very flexible. I also agree it's a fun game. The one I fixed was my Uncles and I look forward to going over there all the time to play it.

Edit: I think it was silicone insulation but not sure.

The shaft for the copter that goes through the playfield has 2 of those parts on it with a rubber piece that goes in between them. It will not turn without them hooked up and is most likely the issue you are having. In the manual look at page 75 parts 5A, 5B and 5C. The part you found is either part 5A or 5C and 5B is the rubber piece that hooks them together. Many times the rubber piece is broken and you need a new one. You can get it from PBResource.

Edit: Also make sure those set screws on 5A and 5C are tight so they don't slip.
