I am on my second copy of loopin Chewie since purchasing it on Force Friday. My sons and I have played it a few times and the motor gives out, I change the batteries think that maybe the problem, however with the new batteries in it still does not work. Is anyone else having this issue?

He'd probably need to bolt it to a table or Chewie is taking off!

Take a look at this thread: https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/807454/replacement-motor-so...

It looks like the Mabuchi FA-130 is a straight replacement motor for both previous Loopin Louie games. I'd bet it would work on Loopin Chewie as well.

I'm on my second copy, too. Same issue. Put in new batteries and it MIGHT chug along for a few seconds... and then dies.

Serious quality issues here...

My copy of Loopin Louie had this problem. I had no luck getting replacements from he publisher (Canadian Design Group). I ended up replacing the motor, as detailed in the above link. Louie is super fast now, which overall is a benefit to the game, IMHO. It was easy to do.

I would recommend returning your copy of LC until you get a working one, if possible. If not, install a new motor as above.

Bright side: use the three spare flippers to convert your game into a 6-player game!!
