Default Help needed: Housing stuck on Turnigy SK 5055-580


I just bought a Turnigy Aerodrive xp SK5055-580 brushless motor from HobbyKing which became only a few seconds into the first test run.

I've discovered that it is not because of a louse magnet, as I initially thought, but a result of the outer housing shifting back until it reached the non-rotating back part of the motor and it became stuck. After being able to move the housing back the same thing happened again. In the two test runs it got stuck at 65 amps and 40 amps, respectively.

Complete setup:
I can ship the motor back to Hobbyking and probably they will provide me with another one. However I live in Iceland, pretty much as far away from Hong Kong as one can get, so the shipping is very expensive and takes weeks. Therefore I would prefer fixing this myself, if possible.
