You were right all along. After the last time it got stuck i did not lube the adapter convinced it was because of the misfitted float bracket and because of the fact that none of my other eheims needed lubrication. However lack of lube was indeed what caused the mechanism to grind to a halt. Now the adapter has been forcefully removed (involving unscrewing and a saw). Its been replaced by a new adapter and lubed with eheim spray.
Unfortunately eheim does not provide any warranty on the parts made out of plastics only ceramic parts and the motor; at least thats what i was told by the reseller.
