Make sure the propeller is pushed all the way down in the motor housing and check that that the intake tube is pushed all the way down on top of the propeller. Does the motor come off? If so make sure it is clean inside....I use a turkey baster to squirt into it since it is hard to fit anything down there to clean! I had the 400 a few years ago and kind of forgot how they are put together. Hope you get it fiqured out!!
